Hi, the belt on the right hand side you changed, have you looked at the grooves to make sure they don't have a build up of Kevlar in? Are the grooves on the pulley clean too? If not this can cause vibration and almost makes the belt skip. Sebo UK aren't on Twitter by the way so not sure who you've tweeted
Well, the sensor thing seems to have eaten away at the new belt too, but the teeth don't look damaged, just the edge where it rubs against the side of the sensor.
As for their twitter, after looking it seems it may be an abandoned account or a fake one so that tweet will be useless lmao.
That is odd but true. The US has an account but it seems long abandoned. They might want to look at that to increase brand awareness.
Despite this being a (new) imported machine that isnt technically entitled to warranty in the UK, I wonder if Sebo UK might be inclined to fix it if Rusty paid the carriage? The fact it was bought from Germany shouldn't really make a difference. The chap may end up a good brand ambassador if Sebo did the needful on this occasion.
I have called Sebo Uk a few times about this but I was told that because it was imported they can't do anything. They offered to "Take a look" for £70 but seen as I've replaced everything apart from the motor and Electrical items I don't know what else can be done? I've spent more than £70 on parts I think haha.
But I'm no Sebo professional, to me it's a mechanical object and by a process of fault finding and then elimination I should have been able to fix the issue but it still persists, so I'm stumped.
I dare say the professional that works on these machines daily will know what to look for when fault finding where as I just work from common sense and years of fixing mechanical things. This is the first Sebo I owned and the first I had to take apart to repair lol.
