SEBO K series
« on: September 23, 2020, 04:07:09 PM »
I bought another "knackered" machine.
Looks in good condition but suffers from something that all cylinders seem to do.
Very loose fits!

It seems to be leaking air under exhaust filter cover. Isn't air supposed to be escaping the machine via air belt? Not to mention that airbelt is covered in black dots.



I also think there's a problem with the hose. Something's not tight there. Is there anything I could do apart from buying a new hose?




Someone had an amazing idea. Finally a decent upholstery tool as K's upholstery tool set up is really odd.

Bags seemed to do a decent job at keeping dust inside.

It also has the same problem as E1. The connection between wand and turbo head is really poor. Why don't they change it?  :underchair:

I know you're gonna say that I bought another used and battered machine and complain. I just thought that Dysons were aging badly but it seems to be the case with all makes.

And please just don't say it's a job for my local competent repair shop cause I also thought that Dysons needed a "proper service"..

It's meant to have 2100W but it just doesn't feel more powerful than 1200W Miele  :-\

That Vulcano is a very old model showing normal signs of age, wear and tear.

None of those things will impact the performance terribly. Vacuums are not designed to be absolutely air tight.
