SOURCE: Our vacuum smells like burning rubber. Does it

Burning rubber smell means the brush belt need attention. Make sure the brush is turning freely and replace the belt

SOURCE: Sebo Felix Premium Vacuum cleaner brush will not

Just the other day we had a customer bring a Felix in to our repair shop with the same problem. Although she'd had the Felix for several years, she'd never realized that one of the buttons on the base is a foot-operated switch (the left hand one as you see it from behind the machine). Hers had been "on" from day one, and never been switched off... until she'd obviously inadvertently pressed it without noticing and switched it off. Then she thought something had broken.
It may be as simple as that. So, does the green light come on when you operate the foot switch? If it does, and the brush doesn't spin, you have most likely got a problem with the motor (or possibly the circuit board) in the base. If the green light does not come on, there is most likely a poor (or broken) electrical connection where the bag compartment plugs in to the base.
I'll gladly try to be more help if you want to post more details.

Why will my sebo felix not turn on when it is plugged in. The bag is empty and the beater bar is free of threads and string.


If it is only the power head that does not turn on, make sure that the hose is fully inserted into the bag housing. There is a switch in the bag housing that has to be activated. If you are not getting any power anywhere, the most common cause would be the power cord. If you are getting 120 volts through the cord, you may need a new power switch. I have included a parts list for your machine for reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/FELIX%20Schematics.pdf

Brush not working on sebo felix


I had the same problem. Make sure nothing is clogging the airway, then bring the handle down as if to clean but dont turn it on. Press the 'light' button in and then turn it on. Hopefully that should do it.

Top motor does not work on felix sebo


Your Sebo Felix needs to have a new suction motor fitted. I had the same problem with mine when it was only nine month old.

Sebo Felix Premium Vacuum cleaner brush will not spin. Not the belt, already checked.

My sebo felix is completely dead - i have checked the fuse and that is ok


Most likely this is a problem with the flex. Quite often it gets damaged (simply wear and tear) - most commonly just where it leaves the plug or where it enters the machine, as these points are subject to the most strain and flexing. Unless you feel confident dealing with electrical problems, you are best advised to let a professional repairer look at the machine.
If you want more help, post a reply here, and I'll see what I can do. Good luck!

Sebo felix upright


Hey Debs
Ive got a Sebo Felix. Unfold the bag (if its folded) and drop it into the top of the bin. Once you've aligned the plastic parts the two nibs which are pointing outwards towards the handle, make sure the plastic collar is sitting on the rest of the surround.

Now the most important aspect is the plastic flap - not the dust cap - but if standing behind the Felix, there is a green flap on the left hand side of the bag which must be pushed down over the spring (looks like a large staple). Once that is folded over and locked in, the lid should close. If the lid still doesn't close check that the top hose fitting has been securely locked and is dust free. Dont forget to rate, ty.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.
