Sebo x1.1 fitted with new bag and filter but red bag check light still comes on and then machine shuts off. Any ideas how to remedy?
Without doubt this indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. The two easiest places to look are: 1. on the underside of the machine there's an inspection flap - check in there; 2. remove the flexible hose completely from the machine at both ends - ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
When I flip the switch on my sebo x1 upright, a red light comes to the brush and bag icons. However, I cleaned out the hose and checked to make sure there is no obstruction from the brush to the hose also, or from the hose to the bag. It is clear that juice is coming to the vacuum, but there is no sign of life except the two red lights.
Thanks for contacting fixya. You should pull out the bag and reset the machine. You should take all the user replaceable items. And turn it on. You will get lot of errors. Then turn the machine off. Put back all the accessor ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

I just received My brand new hoover platinum lightweight upright UH30010 (with canister) which I ordered through ebay and today is just the SECOND time I used it but the check bag light indicator is already flashing. My husband and I live in a 1 bedroom (695 sq t) apartment (no kids or pets). I checked the bag and the dirt is just maybe two inches - far from the limit line showing on the bag..and I remembered the advertisement on TV that it can even last upto to six months depending on the usage

Actually the problem is inside of the canister itself. You need to change a part called the control valve. Occaisonally when fine particles get inside of the valve it damages the inside of the valve, sending a false reading to the main motor, causi ... Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
