Having problems with your Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Red when bag is not full
\015 Red light very often when bag is not full\015
The red light will also come on when there is a blockage in the pipes leading to the bag compartment. To test that the light is working correctly, you can unplug the flexible hose from the top of the bag compartment then switch the machine on. The red light should be off, but will come on if you block the hole with your hand. If that test shows the light is working, you need to search for a blockage - which is most likely to be in the flexible hose, but can be in the rigid plastic tube or in the base of the machine (turn it over and look in the little trap-door). Clearing a blockage from the hose can be difficult - you are more likely to be successful if you can devise a way to pull it out rather than trying to push it (as with a broom handle, for example), because pushing may just compact it. Good luck!

When removing the canister bag, the plate and spring that it slides into popped out. When I put them back in, the bag full indicator is completely red. It is a new bag and filters. I think I am not getting the plate and spring back in the canister correctly. Any instructions or pictures showing proper insertion and configuration of these? I looked in the manual and the part is only shown while bag being inserted.

Hi there, I have an excellent Electrolux (but older) Diplomat LX model which stops when the bag is supposedly full. It''s not full however, but merely 1/4 to 1/3 full. I'd like to reduce the "sensitivity" of the sensor or turn it off altogether. I don't run my vacuum with a full bag, but there's a limit. Please tell me how to address this problem. Thanks very much.

I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!
