Sebo X4 Needing Some TLC
« on: May 12, 2024, 11:26:30 pm »
Hi There, we have a Sebo X4 somewhere north of 15 years old and needing a bit of TLC. I have been researching replacements and found Manchester Vacs. I had decided to buy a new X7 pet or E3 BUT reading info on this site and given I don’t like waste, I wanted to try and revitalise the X4.

Easy things are new roller brush, cable, and extension hose. Would like to try one of the Sebo or Dyson mini turbo heads for the stairs as well. The issue of concern is that the auto height does not work correctly. I was going to replace the servo BUT now I know that brush wear can be an issue as well as maybe one of the other two boards, I was hoping someone on here could advise me how to trouble shoot. No point in buying any parts if I can’t get the height adjust working again. I should add I replaced the servo some years back, worked better for a while (not as well as new) and then not!

X4 has been fantastic and had a heavy shift, dont feel she owes us anything but I’d love to get her back to as new condition. Any guidance or advice much appreciated.

Hello Jeff, I split your post off and made it a topic.

If the machine has never had a brushroll, and especially if it has a white bristle brushroll, start by replacing that. That fixes most height issues. We have an article on that here: Height control and hard to push issues on a Sebo X4

There are other possibilities, but a new brushroll is always the place to start.
