SEBO Felix Vogue
« on: July 29, 2019, 01:48:31 PM »
So my partner's sister bought a Felix on eBay. Second hand one. I ordered it for her. It came in pristine condition, clean inside dust compartment, fitted with genuine bag.



I vacuumed our house just to see if everything is alright with it..
Excellent suction. Brushroll in pristine condition too.
I've bought new motor protection filter as apparently it's supposed to be changed every two years and the cleaner is two years old.
Is there anything else I should look at?

My biggest concern is that it blows really hot air even straight after turning on. It gets hotter with every minute. So basically while vacuuming stairs or sofa it really blows on you. I was sweating.

It doesn't seem to be as good as Ball Animal 2 on hard floors. But maybe it's just a matter of adjusting the cleaner head's height.

Well, I kinda like it. Apart from hot air blowing on me. Maybe I should replace my Miele  :underchair: :underchair: :-\

A very capable machine.

As long as the bag is recent I'd not be too concerned about it seeming hot.

Does it need changing? The cleaner is only 2 years old and the lady in John Lewis' store told us that it would needed to be changed every five years but it's absolutely filthy  :o :(

So basically there's only a difference in colorsif it's about exhaust filters, right?
Why do some cost so much and some are cheap? Are they more popular I suppose?

We've ordered filter in Navy as well as bags from Sebo's website. Wish it didn't take so long to deliver though.

We deliver next day:grinn:

All you had to do with that exhaust cover is wash it.

No matter..........

Everything costs more than it could do on Amazon as it costs 20% of the order total to sell there. Why private sites are often cheaper.

Seriously? I could just wash it  :'( :'( :'(
Oh well, hopefully it's gonna perform better than after washing  :duh:
You don't sell exhaust filters, do you? Unless I'm blind

We sell everything if someone wants it.

As it says on our Felix spares page:

Quote
If you donít see what you need on this page, please >>contact us<< to ask. We probably have it.

We tend not to list exhaust filters on the site for Felix machines as nobody buys them because they get washed instead if they are ever taken off. 

When we service a Felix, washing that filter with the hot pressure washer is one of the things it gets.

Oh well, my partner's sister doesn't like it as it's heavy for her and hot air really annoys her while vacuuming stairs.
So we're gonna swap. She's getting Miele C2, good as I was disappointed with it.
And we're gonna keep Sebo  :whist11: ;)

I'm still trying to get use to it. I must say, it is harder to push than Ball Animal 2. Cleaning the cleaner head helps, but it gets dirty with every use.
I vacuum on setting 1 in my whole house without the warning light.
I'm kinda happy that it blows hot air as I'm always cold in winter  :biglaugh:
I ordered a tool adapter from your Amazon page so I could connect my Hoover's mini turbobrush with it.
And what is the best. I've texted SEBO about dusting brush and told them that it would be more useful for me than crevice tool and they sent me one for free  :icon_nod:
Not the matching color but still. Unexpected and really nice.
