Sebo Automatic X4 Extra Cutting out...
« on: June 16, 2019, 02:32:57 PM »
I Wonder if anyone can provide some helpful advise. I have a Sebo X4 Extra. Has been faultless for many years apart from having to change the power lead occasionally. It's now suffering from a fault where it cuts out. have checked the Power lead and handle. All is fine. There seems to be some excess movement between the Main body of the hoover and the Base. So when you are using the appliance it is generally fine going forwards but cuts out when pulling back towards you. Any ideas?

Cheers

James

You possibly need a rear bag main body.

The reason it is cutting out when you pull it back is loss of electrical connection that usually leads us to one of two possibilities:

When you pull it back the electrical terminals in the bottom of the handle shaft can be losing connection as you pull back. This is because of a hairline crack in the main body where the triangular aluminium tube goes into. This is caused by either/or or a combination of wear and tear, old age, the machine being dropped or not carried correctly over time.

The other possibility as you suggest is wear or breakage in the bottom of the main body causing a disconnection in the electrical terminals there as its pulled back. Wear to the pivot point on the arm arm that comes out of the base or in the electrical plug there can also be a culprit too. Click the main body off and examine the components there and see what has excess wear or play and go from there.

If the fault isnt obvious after inspection as above, it might be wise to bring it in if local, or send it in for repair if not.

Thank you very much for the swift response and advice. Much appreciated. I took it apart and can't see any cracks or splits in the plastic body or in the part that fits in the bottom. The connectors looked in good health as well. It's definitely the connection at the bottom that's the issue as it rocks on the pipe connecting to the motor unit breaking the connection. I've put a couple of layers on duck tape cut round the rear of the grey pipe on the motor unit to pack it out and it and also some round the sides of the supporting black stabiliser leg as that seemed a loose fit as well. The body now fits firmly and it seems to be functioning normally at the minute anyway.

Cheers

If there is no sign of burning in the connector, a new body would be the answer there most likely, as it will be worn inside allowing it to rock.
