My Sebo X4 does not switch on, when powered up two red lights flash momentarily. There was a buzzing from the black box underneath but that has now stopped. I changed the bag yesterday as it said it w


Your red lights flashing momentarily is normal start-up. The fact that your servo motor is operating tells you that you are getting power. If the vacuum motor does not turn on, you likely have a problem with the motor itself or the power supply board that feeds power to the motor. These items should be covered under warranty. However, if your vacuum is outside the manufacturers warranty, you can replace either of these parts fairly easily with only a phillips head screwdriver.I have included a link to the parts list for this machine. We do stock both parts. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

I have an Energizer Model CHDC7 battery charger for AA/AAA batteries. I'm not sure how to use it. Specifically, when batteries are inserted and plugged in, it displays flashing green lights over all...


Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries are usually charged in pairs in consumer chargers. The CHDC7 can charge two or four batteries at a time. Their position in the charger is important (see the link at the end of this note). Each battery has a separate pair of green LEDs. There are no other LEDs on this charger. The LEDs light up to show the state of charge. Flashing means it is charging. Solid means it has reached that level of charge (ie, 1 LED = half charged, 2 LEDs = fully charged). The batteries will get warm but not uncomfortably so. After some practice you will be able to tell if they are getting too hot (which may signal a worn-out battery which should then be replaced). Like all rechargeable batteries, NiMH batteries have a finite life (measured in number of times they've been discharged and recharged). IMHO, they should also be used and charged in matched pairs. I mark them when I take them out of the box and keep them paired in use and in charging for maximum life. Yes, the devices that use 3 batteries are a pain to deal with. LOL. All details can be found on this Energiser data sheet: http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/chdc7_instructions_english.pdf

P.S. The CHDC7 remains open for charging. Closing it for storage is optional but minimizes the space it takes up.

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses...


This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due to a power surge, going to order a replacement to see if it works, will let you know how it goes.

Scooba says check tank and won't move.


Rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank with warm water, particularly the round opening that covers your Scooba's vacuum port and the curved one that matches the filter. Odds are, there's a clog in there and your Scooba knows it. Rinse the two oval ports as well, as thoroughly as you can.

Also, try priming the pump with water. The iRobot website shows how to do this under the Scooba troubleshooting section.

Then run the unit with water and vinegar (in place of the Clorox Cleaning Solution) if possible.

No suction in an upright position


If there is vacuum at the point you described, then you need to look down inside where that round port connects to the floor head, all the way out to the beater bar. You may have to take the plate off the bottom to look all the way through to where the round vacuum port connects.

Let me know what you find. But the key to fixing this is to think about the direction of air flow as it travels to the vacuum motor. You've correctly identified one important operational fact (vacuum at the round port). Now we have to find the problem, and you are the eyes and ears of that investigation.

V1917n shark vacuum won't run


Mine did the same thing, actually both of them did. I had ordered two at the same time. I love these vacuums. They are so convenient to use and do a terrific job, at least until they acted up and did not want to run.

The first one would power up for a second or two and then quit and the three lights would flash. I tried everything to get it to work. I switched batteries and the charger cord with the new one, but still it did the same thing. So, I opened my second new one up and began using it. I worked for several months and then just here a couple of days ago it too began acting just like the first one did.

I took the corner brush off and then the rotator brush off and removed all the hair, strings, and etc., from around the brushes and also all the areas of the vacuum where any could be at. I put it all back together and it turned for several seconds and then the three lightw would flash again.

I had given up on them working again and was going to be boxing then both up and send back for replacements and was looking at buying another brand of cordless rechargeable sweeper. I had found one to buy, but still I knew that I would miss the Shark vacuums.

Well, tonight I took the second one apart again and looked at areas where I might have missed any hair or strings that might have wound around anything that might keep the brush from turning. I found some wound around the rotator brush end piece that is on the side opposite to the belt. At first I thought that a rubber gasket was worn that fit over the little metal rod that is at the end of the rotator brush, but when it still would not run, then I was thinking that the belt needed to be changed.

I have read somewhere, where someone said that it was hard to change the belts. Well, with the Shark that I have, which has three speeds and the handle that drops down in the middle so that you can vacuum under beds and etc, it is easy to change. There is a tab that you have to push that is next to the wheel on the belt side of the underside of the vacuum, and it opens to reveal the belt.

Well, when I opened it----------there was a tremendous lot of fibers and hair wrapped around the belt wheel and in the chamber leading up to the wheel that the belt attaches to the rotator brush. After taking the belt off the bottom wheel and cleaning all the hair and fibers off it and removing all the rest in the chamber, I put everything back together and it powered up and ran just like it did when I first got it.

I also got the first one working also. I don't have to send them back and have to wait a long time for replacements. Just a word of advice------------keep the rotator brush clean and the area around the belt at the bottom and anywhere else where hair and strings can wrap around. Keep a check on it weekly and it might keep them running.

Rear air port for release of too high suction


You have to open the entire mid section of the vacuum. There is about 8-10 screws to remove. I would inspect for clogs in all tube sections prior to opening. I've opened my vacuum many times it's not terribily difficult just be careful to not disturb the wire routes or pinch them when closing the vacuum back up.
