Having problems with your Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

It is switching itself off and red light is on for bag, but bag is new


Answers :

Almost certainly there's a blockage somewhere. You should try the following, in the order given: remove the flexible hose from the top of the machine, check the hose and its socket for debris and clear if necessary, then switch on. the red bag light should not be illuminated. Check that the bag light is operating correctly by placing your hand over the hose socket to block the air flow - the light should come on, and go off again when you remove your hand. If all is well so far, replace the hose in its socket and then remove the rigid plastic tube at the other end of the hose from its socket in the base of the machine and go through all the tests as before. Finally, turn the machine over and check in the little trap door (again looking for blockages).\012

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.

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?

I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?

Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers. When power switched on, the two red indicators briefly flash on then off, but nothing more happens, motor does not start - even with power reaching machine. Tried removing all consumables, refitting and turning on a few times to reset, no joy. Removed base cover, both belts were i


At 12 years, this vacuum has had a good long life. I suspect the motor is shot, but it could be due to faulty wiring and connections. A bad switch, break in the power cord, and worn brushes in the motor are other causes.\015\012I recommend ta ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Controller's small red light flashes constantly, meaning that electric blanket will not heat up. Instructions state switch off, wait, then re-try but this does not solve. Web search for 'Spares' does not actually give spares sellers, only those wishing to sell full new product! Does anybody know of a true spares seller please? Dreamland themselves do not appear to sell spares. UK only.


When the controller is flashing red, this means that there is a problem either with the controller or the wiring inside the blanket. You might try looking on Ebay. You might find a spare there. The safe thing to do though is just purchase a new one. ... Vacuums
