Expert:  carlday1 replied 1 year ago.

Could you send me the model of the sebo. Would you be looking to repair it yourself?

It could be a number of things that are causing it not to run. I can talk you through a few things but it would involve stripping the machine and testing parts.

Hi Laurie,

Sorry for the delay. I am looking for the repair manual for the vacuum, Was the sparking a lot or a little. I suspect that the motor may need new brushes. If the motor brushes are worn the motor will spark whilst trying to run and it won't run.

Here is a video to changes the brushes on a sebo x1 it will be similar on your x4
