X4 Pet - check bag light + wobbly
« on: April 20, 2022, 03:37:44 PM »
Hi all,

Iím new to the forum so excuse me as I know my question has probably been asked a hundred times but just wanted to be 100% certain.

I have a Sebo X4 Pet 1100w with the dreading check bag light on. Iíve triple checked all hoses, the bag, brush roller and the little flap and found no blockage. The vacuum switches off after a few strokes of the vacuum. Iíve opened it and canít find a screw to adjust so I presume I would need either a tool to reset it or a new PCB which seems to be the most cost effective and easiest option? I have a attached a picture of the current PCB I have in the vacuum. Please could you tell me which PCB I would need to replace it?

Also the other issue I have is the vacuum is never steady, itís very wobbly like how a wobbly table would be like. Is there any remedy for this?

Thank you in advance for any help. :)

Assuming you've done everything on this video, it's probably the board.

If your existing board can be reset, send just the board and we can do that for £30 inc return postage. Enclose this service slip with it and reference the forum topic in the notes. If it wont reset, it won't cost you anything.

About wobbly, start by examining this part. That would be the usual culprit.

Thank you for your reply, your video was the first thing I found and did to resolve the issue but no luckÖ

If you are able to reset the board would that stop the issue or is there a chance of it happening again few months down the line?

£30 seems very reasonable and half the price of the new board. The vacuum was purchased in 2015 and I regularly changed the filters etc.

Regarding the wobbly vacuum, thank you for your recommendation, I should have been a bit more clear.. itís not wobbling from the main unit but more so from the wheels meeting the ground, very similar to a rocky table. When Iím using the hose to clean something the vacuum would either topple over or just keep moving so someone has to hold it still till I finish. It doesnít seem planted to the ground if that makes sense?

Would the board reset last or would the issue come back again later on?

If I do send it in, what is the turnaround for it?

Thank you

It should last.

Thank you

It would be back out the same day.
