Having problems with your Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I need to replace the motor on a Sebo Automatic X!

\015 I cannot find how to get to the motor although I seem to have taken all the visible screws out.\015

Answers :

OK, here goes...  NOTE - any use of the words LEFT and RIGHT assume that you are looking from the REAR of the machine.\015\012
\015\012STEP 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!\015\012
\015\012STEP 2. Turn the base upside-down and undo the FOUR DEEPLY-RECESSED SCREWS.  All the surface-mounted screws are irrelevant to this job.\015\012
\015\012STEP 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.\015\012
\015\012STEP 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.\015\012
\015\012STEP 5. Undo the two screws holding the circuit board (take care the washers don't slip away). You need to do that because the front of the motor cover is tucked underneath it, but you don't need to move the circuit board more than a few millimeters.  Then undo the four screws holding the motor cover and lift the cover away.  The motor will then just lift out.\015\012
\015\012Re-assembly is simply the reverse of the above process.\015\012
\015\012If you need more help, just ask.  Please remember to rate this response.

Hi, I've just had my Sebo X4 back from being repaired (motor was growling so Sebo replaced it FOC under warranty) however, the replacement motor is 1000 watts. I queried this with Sebo, as they c

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.\015\012\015\012Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC1 ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.
