Faulty Sebo X4 boost?
« on: December 07, 2017, 12:25:21 AM »
Right, got it brand new and the boost lowers the head very little. It does make a slight difference but hardly any at all. anyone reckon it's faulty or is that how they're supposed to be?  :'(
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Are the lights working properly? It shows it going down?

What type of carpet?

It does it on any type of carpet (Tried it on thick saxony, thin flat rugs, medium pile, flattened loop pile, etc)
The green light comes on when I press the boost button

It goes up and down as normal, down further when boost is pressed too

Sounds like it is doing what it is supposed to do to me.

Boost button on> it lights up green> downward arrow also lights up> downward arrow goes out when Boost height is reached.

Sebos are all tested in the factory in Germany before packing. It would be very unusual to get one faulty out of the box.

Its not Vax y'know.  :chuckle:
