SOURCE: Bristles quit rotating and smelled like something was burning. It isn't the belt that turns the bristles. Can't afford a repairman, can you help me fix it?

Belt can reamin intact but still jam and burn. It won't necessarily break. I suggest you remove the bottom of the vacuum where the bristles spins and where the belt is located. You may have something jammed in there. You may need to remove the bristle to get the belt out. Inspect the belt and replace after clearing the obstruiction.

I accidentally sucked up a thin belt that wrapped around the bristles and stopped the bristles and now the bristles wont turn


You need to remove the thin belt from the roller if you haven't already. Check the ends of the roller to make sure there is nothing there stopping the roller from turning. You can try turning the roller with your hand using minimal force.

I believe this unit has a switch on the front of the handle for the brush motor. It may cut off if the roller gets hung up. Have you tried turning this on?

In summary try cleaning everything off of the roller and then check for the switch that I mentioned. Let us know how you make out and good luck!

Front brissels dont rotate


have you removed the bristle bar to see if carpet fibers have wrapped around the ends causing the bar to bind up, have you noticed any smoke smell, if so your belt may have broken, easy way to check, flip the unit over and remove the bottom cover plate, whats wrong should be obvious at that point.

The brushes stopped turning. I cleaned the filter


Can you rotate the brushes manually (grab some of the yellow bristles and rotate the brushes). If they are not jammed, then your air fan drive is clogged or broken. Air must pass through the fan to spin the brushes... so confirm air flow by powering the machine on and feeling for decent air flow. Clear any obstructions that my restrict air flow....

Hi we seem to have a problem with our Sebo .When in use as you draw the hoover back and forth seems to become very heavy to push as if the suction is becoming stronger. PLease can you advise. Mary


As you know, your Sebo automatically adjusts its brush height according to the type of floor it's on. At the correct brush height, on carpet, the machine should almost pull itself forwards. If this is not happening, the first thing to check is to look and see if the bristles on the brush roller are very worn (bristles on a new roller will almost entirely fill the available space). If they are worn, a new roller will almost certainly solve the problem. If the problem persists, the automatic height control mechanism may have failed (possible but very unusual) and a professional repair will be necessary. You may notice that I haven't even mentioned the possibility that one of the belts may have broken (in which case the brush roller will not be rotating at all) - because of the machine's excellent design, broken belts are almost unknown (they can last for 15 years and more) but not completely impossible.
My message in a nutshell: look to the brush roller first. If a new one doesn't solve the problem, go to a professional repairer.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response.  Thanks!

DCo7 too much suction hard to push


This suggests that the bristles on your brush roller are worn out.  When the bristles are a good working length, rotation of the roller actually helps to pull the machine over the carpet. When the bristles wear down this effect is lost.

Power brush motor seems too weak


This machine needs a new belt. The belt is stretched into position and even if it is not used, will fatigue over time. This can occur as the machine is in storage waiting to be sold. If you check the bristle on the roller, you will observe that it extends out the bottom of the powerhead quite far and is very stiff. This causes the brush to engage the carpet very aggressively and puts considerable strain on the belt. A tired belt will fail very quickly under these conditions. You should take it to a warranty depot and have the belt changed.
This machine also has variable speed motor in the main unit. This is so you can adjust how heavily the powerhead brushes the carpet. If it is set too high, on certain carpets, the suction will pull the powerhead down too hard and this will bogg the roller and cause the belt to fail prematurely.
