Good to see an X1 going strong, my personal favourite model!
Replacement pedal is exactly the same as the original apart from colour. Will just clip straight on.
As for the wheels I'm not 100% sure but take the axel off and you'll probably find they unscrew or just pull straight off.
All spares can be bought on the Manchester vacs website or ebay etc for fairly cheap.
Lastly, as long as your confident I'm more than sure you'll be able to do the repair yourself! Some parts are quite fiddly I've found during my experience of working with Sebo vacuums.

We can send there in case of need, but you have to order by email as the site isn't set up to do so.

First Generation "The Ball" Dysons. / Re: DC15 Brushroll Motor Voltage?
« Last post by macman on May 27, 2024, 04:48:21 pm »
Conclusion: I have to eat my words, as it turned out to be just the yoke loom, after all that.  I had already tested it for continuity on the machine, and it was OK. But, when I removed it and retested it, it failed on one side when stretched out in a straight line. They break internally at the point where they pass through the little rubber grommet, which is obviously the the weak spot.
Lesson learnt: to always test components on and off the machine. Why it seemed to run OK on hard floors but not on a pile carpet, I'm not quite sure. But the motor seems to be in good condition, it just needed a good cleaning.
Anyone want to purchase a now surplus-to-requirements DC15 brushroll motor and PCB?

Thanks very much for the reply. If I still lived in Manchester I'd definitely bring it in but live in the Netherlands now. I'll follow the advice and see where things take me!

A PCB is possible, and if it's a pre-eco model, it should be >this one<. However, the side magnet coming out or the servo motor is possible too. The brushroll is always the first place to start, especially if yours has white bristles, changing it would be routine. A brushroll is the fix for self-levelling issues most of the time. It's certainly the place to start.

However, I'd expect some lights. It's odd to have none at all. That does make me lean towards a PCB.

Were it in the workshop, we'd first fit a brushroll as a matter of routine and see if it sprang back into life. Then you'd try a top PCB, then look for a missing side magnet (see >this topic< on that), and probably look at a servo motor last.

Hi, thanks for your reply. It's not an eco model, too old for that I think. It hasn't had a new brush roll fitted, the current one is very worn. I see no lights at all, whatever I do with the vacuum everything stays dark. Hope that gives a bit more insight..

First, is it an Eco model or not? As the PCBs differ.

Has it had a brush roll recently?

When you stand it up or recline it, do the green up and down lights blink?

Replacement wheels come with cap and clip, they just push on. So it doesn't matter if you break the old one. But there's no need to do anything other than I said, a few screws to remove the axle and the wheel/s pop off as described.

Thank you for your reply.
Looking at the video on here how to remove the axle and rear wheels - it suggests don't take off the wheel caps as it is so easy to break the clips etc.
Would it be easier and recommended to just unscrew the three screws holding the axel in place and replace the entire rear wheel axel assembly? I need to replace one wheel (possibly both wheels) and a foot pedal anyway.
What do you think?

Hi guys. I picked up an absolute bargain today. I picked up a Shark CZ250Uk, Shark CZ500UK and a Shark IZ300 cordless all for £35. However the Shark CZ500’s cord does not retract. Is there any way to fix this at all. I was looking through youtube and there is not a single vid on this. Can someone advise me please. Thank you all
