Hi - i found the forum courtesy of Manchester Vacs. They supplied me a new roller brush for Sebo x4 extra. The brush was/is tip top but i have figued out that the problem is the spindle won't rotate: lots of noise but no rottaion.

I found a video on the site about motor strip down... I'm thinking that the motor might be OK and the problem is with the drive.

Just ocurred to me that this should be a separate post, once i havce said hello. I'm pretty sure you'll tell me  ;)... grateful for where i should post this
Cheers
Keith

Found the site and the forum here after searching for a decent vac (Something I've had little success with for some reason).

Now got a refurbed X4 1300 from mvacs and a few other little goodies to go with it.

Finally got it working after delivery this morning - had a weird minor issue which I'll post about separately.

Im hoping this sebo will put an end to my woes and also allow me to finally be able to clean inside my car properly.

Thanks,

Steve.

Picked up a Dyson Ball Animal for pretty cheap and it works great, but having some issues with the brush bar working intermittently. Also the locking mechanism isn't the best.

All in all, I like to tinker with thinks and hopefully I can get this sorted.

Hi Everyone I have just started fixing & re-selling vacuums in the last couple of months so this looked like a good place to be. I'm not a collector as such I just get em & flip em hence the name. I enjoy keeping things off the scrapheap if I can. I have a pretty good supply line of broken & unwanted vacs and I am almost used to the wet dog smell already. Look forward to being a part of the community

I looked online for answers to my issues with my Sebo X1 and found this forum. I am looking for help with height adjustment issue that occurred yesterday. The green lights to move the machine height are no longer coming on, and the machine is stuck at full height. Initially the bag full light came on, changed the bag, then no adjustment after that. The brush roll is pretty new and all filters have been swapped recently, plus a new pub board fitted as prior to this issue I was getting false clogs lights, now this. Any suggestions at what may be causing this?

Hi, found this via a search for Dyson spares. I originally repaired white goods at a time where very few plastics were in use... well over 45 years ago  :snivel: before gaining qualifications in electronics. Moved over to Banking and Retail electro/mechanical engineering (ATM and Self checkouts). Eventuality managing engineer skills, training and documentation  :reading:. Now retired and so back own in-house repairs and service which includes an old DC07 and DC40. The DC40 suffered from a broken upper duct/spine (likely due to additional pressure being exerted to a falling drop down stand). Looking forward to the journey of this forum.. :tiphat: Thanks Peater
