Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a Sebo X4 vacuum cleaner which has lost suction and is displaying the red bag clogged light. There is no apparent blockage in the pipework from brush to bag Any clues as to reasons/solutions?

Answers :

There could be a few reasons:\015\012
\015\012Check that the main filters are completely clean - open the door to see if there is any dirt on the main slide out roll filter and also the main exhaust filter on top of the hood of the X4 (by pushing the handle all the way down to the floor as if the X4 is flat floor cleaning) The exhaust filter has to be replaced if its completely black in colour and can't be washed. \015\012
\015\012Failing that, check the main inspection blockage door on the underside of the floor head. Inspect it with a torch - even though it may feel like there is nothing there by putting your fingers into the trapdoor, debris like stiff cardboard can often block the main dust channel entrance from the brush to the main hose. Also take off the hose and extend it fully to see if anything is clogged.
