Windsor Sensor 12 Vacuum No Power

I know I have power down to the last quick disconnect in the housing base. I take off the cover today and I have circuit boards, capacitors, ect., ect. I have a digital meter. Is there anything I can check and how to check? As in circuit board, burnt motor, ect. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    Where would I get a fuse?

    I was using the vac and unplugged it without using the off switch. When I plugged it back in it wouldn't run.

I'm an engineer for Hyatt hotels and I've worked with the S12 vacuums for a few years now. The most common problem electrically lies in the main switch and the power cord. Almost at no time in the past three years and working for 4 hotels have I had to replace any motor or board component for them. Take out the handle from the bag housing and use your volt meter/circuit tester to test the main switch, if that and your power cord are good, then you might have a bad fuse, which is located on the brush side of the main chip board. Any other questions, feel free to email me directly @ [email protected]

If your vacuum has had 20 years of service it may be simply too old to repair.

How to replace brush bar motor


It's not easy. The cleaner head assembly is hard to get off the main frame. When you get it there are 4 hex screws to the motor cover (hard to turn). Then a black and a white wire go into the unit. The wire cover can be removed with one hex screw but you still can't disconnect them. You have to remove the housing on the main drum (which I haven't done yet). I was looking for a picture like this all day. This is a shot I took today, apparently the only shot of the motor in the housing on the entire web. bc2d0b10-525a-469b-953c-57c5fd2f36e0.jpg

If it is tripped, then turn off your central vacuum unit and reset the circuit breaker. Then turn the central vacuum unit on. If the circuit breaker trips again, then refer to the following:
check.gifDetermine if the house circuit your vacuum unit is on has sufficient voltage required.
check.gifIf your unit has a reset button, press the button and try again.

The descripion you have send is only for the board. We need to know also how is the machine.
Is the machine working good up today and you have descover this after a fault?
If there was a fault what was that?
We need some of this information in order to get the whole picture and history of the machine.

How to change brush belt


OK, here goes... NOTE - any use of the words LEFT and RIGHT assume that you are looking from the REAR of the machine. NOTE ALSO - the machine has two toothed belts, it makes sense to change both while you're at it. Incidentally, this is a job you shouldn't have to do very often - Sebo belts usually last at least 10 years.
STEP 1. Separate the base from the bag compartment: press the button at bottom front centre of bag compartment and lift bag compartment upwards away from base. Sometimes this is quite stiff and four hands would be useful, you can lever it from behind with something relatively soft (the plastic handle of a dishwash brush works well) but take care to lift vertically upwards, not sideways or you risk bending a metal lever that's hard to get back into shape again. Rest assured that once you've pressed that button there is nothing holding the two parts together other than friction!
STEP 2. Turn the base upside-down and undo the FOUR DEEPLY-RECESSED SCREWS. All the surface-mounted screws are irrelevant to this job.
STEP 3. Turn the complete base right-way up, release the foot pedal and move the vacuum tubes out of vertical. The top cover will then lift off. You will see there are two belts - the pulley device between the motor and the brush roller is the sensor that measures the drag on the brushes and operates the automatic height adjuster to maintain constant drag. To the right of that double pulley is the electronic circuit board - note that it has a sensor that locates within the pulley device, be careful not to damage it.
STEP 4. At the left end of the motor cover, the drive cog is concealed by a small cover. Lift this cover out vertically, noting how it locates in the frame for when you come to put it back. Next, although not essential, it helps to remove the metal lever because if it falls out when you're not looking you may later be uncertain about how to locate the small coil spring. So slide that lever out towards the motor, noting how the spring locates.
STEP 5. Undo the two screws holding the circuit board (take care the washers don't slip away). Then undo the four screws holding the double pulley. Once that's free, you'll be able to change the belts.
Re-assembly is simply the reverse of the above process.

Vacuum starts up on its own. The only way to stop it is to unplug it, why is this happening?


The motor can only be switched on this way for 2 reasons. The circuit board inside the canister is bad or somewhere in the wiring in the house or in an outlet, a connection has been made in the low volt wiring, triggering the relay on the circuit board. If you unplug the low volt wiring from the canister and the problem goes away, then the problem is in the house, if the vac still turns on when the low volt wiring is disconnected then the problem is the circuit board inside the vac.

Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.
