Having problems with your Sebo Felix Classic Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Motor not engaging
\015 The motor was not engaging to turn the brush. I took the cover off (to uncover the motor) and out fell a metallic strip. If I push the switch, that is located under the two LED's, the motor switches engages which drives the brushe. The motor won't engage in the usual way of tiliting the upper part of the vacuum. Obviously it has something to do with the metallic strip but can't work out where it comes from. Thought it might lay acrross the switch under the plastic clip but doesnt seem to be the case..\015

There is no power...seems like a motor problem. The bag is clean...the mouth is clean the plug us in...NOTHING! I took mouth off and manipulated/pushed in that power press area that engages the motor on the front (not the switch on the back) and NOTHING! Not sure if motor died and/or what to do now. Help. I have had this baby for 15 years.
The front safety switch must be pushed in by either the hose or head (or manually), before the on/off switch will operate. The most common reason for no power is a bad cord. Second most common is worn carbons in the motor, and third is a bad switch. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Sewing machine Guru needed ;) Elna Grasshopper (new to me) circa 1950 The light works, but there was no hummm when knee pedal engaged. I have the motor out, and it is very stiff to turn.

Motor just makes 4 or 5 small clicking noises when you pull the trigger, then stops. The little lights illumintae around the "max" button as well. However, the motor does not engage in the slightest. There is no blockage at all. I have owned the vac for 10 months and know the sounds of blockage and clear them immediately. I just used it in the morning, plugged it back in and it has not worked since. Any ideas?

I have a Necchi 522, an early mechanical stretch stitch machine. The timing and stitching are great, but over the past few projects I have noticed a balky tendency when I press the knee bar. After my last project the motor almost won't engage. Sometimes there is no sound, and sometimes there is a weak whirring, but no action until I push the hand wheel. I have a feeling that it is either the v belt or that the motor needs new brushes. Are either of these ideas likely, and if so, are they self
