How do I replace the front bottom plate on my Sebo X4 Extra vacuum cleaner, this is the metal/plastic plate on the front base of the bottom of the cleaner (no visible fixings)


With the power head cover removed, you will see tabs on the inside of the chassis inline with the front bottom plate. Simply pinch the tabs with some needle nose pliers and push. I have included a link to the parts list as well as the front bottom plate. You will see by the picture what those tabs look like and how to remove the front bottom plate. 5411 HG Front Bottom Plate Windsor Sensor S12 XP12 SR12 86138280 allstar... http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

When machine is running the brush does not turn


You need a new belt. In order to change it, turn the machine compleatly upside down and place the head on a counter, handle on the floor.
There is a L shaped base plate to remove that has 5 screws in. Once the base plate is off, you see the brush roller and a silver shaft directly back from where the belt would ride. Remove the brush roller, place the new belt, Dirt Devil Style 5 ( see link below ) on to the shaft. Then insert the brush roller, so the belt is on the raised carved out section of the brush roller. Grab the brush roller at each end and stretch it till you are able to put the brush roller back into the base. Turn the brush roller backwards 3 compleat turns and the same forward to seat the belt.
Replace the base plate and you're done.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

Base Plate screw rotating in insert and not coming out. Insert come unfixed with screw still attached. Therefore unable to remove baseplate, unable to remove cotton fibres from brushes. Have you an...


Try to remove all other base plate screws first. If they can be removed gently try to pull open by hand against the lid while rotating the remaining screw. You will need to apply outward pressure betweent the insert and baseplate to remove it while rotating with a driver and using the separating pressure to allow it to unscrew.
The inner housing may have a cap nut on it which has spun loose or the threaded area of the housing has likely cracked if the head has been dropped.

I changed my belt using the step by step directions included with my vacuum and now it won't even turn. Anyone have a clue to why this is?


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. I would think that it is one of maybe things
  1. the bearings on the brush are worn - can be checked by removing brush and holding either end and see if it turns when you hold it as if it was fitted. If no then you will need to replace the bearings or the brush complete if it is sealed.
  2. The base plate is not fitted quite right so that it is pressing on the brush at some point - remove base plate and turn machine on see if it spins without the plate. If it does then just check alignment of the plate and refit.
If this isnt right follow me up im more than happy to try again with a bit more info.
happy vacuuming :)

Something's rubbing. It is probably the beater bar rubbing against the base plate. Remove the base plate and check that your beater bar is back in the sockets of the vacuum frame correctly. If they get installed a bit off, it'll make a LOT of racket. Check it out!

I can't figure out how to change the belt on my hoover bagless Sprint upright. Please help.


1 set up vacume with bottom facing you , making it easy to deal with.
2 remove the 4 screws holding base plate on and carefully remove the base plate, on mine there is a small catch that must be released.
3the belt compartment is on the right, remove the old belt, it's about 1 and 1/4 wide.
4 You have to put the belt on the stainless steel motor spindle first, then work the belt over the plastic drive wheel, and spin it around a few time to ensure it's running on track ok.
5 Replace the base plate , click in the self catching clip last.
6 Replace the four screws and test the vacume.
