Hi to everyone this is my first post and was hoping for a little help.
I own a Sebo BS36 and very recently the the vacuum body which attaches to the power head has gotten a little wobbly.
I have checked the support bar and it initially seems ok but a little wear is expected here in any case.
The main gripe is that when the vacuum gets used due to the action of the wobble the micro switch cuts in and out disengaging the power head intermittently.
If any one can offer any shared experience or advice it would be much appreciated.
Great forum by the way.
Thanks to all Jim.

Hi, Welcome to the site.

I've worked on a few of SEBO BS36s and they do tend to wear there over time

From that movement in the body of the machine that causes the electrical connections in the main head and lower body to start to wear away where they connect to each other. Hence it starts turning the head on and off. So they will more than likely need replacing. And possibly some of the lower body housing depending how bad and what's worn.

Sorry if my information isn't very clear. I'm better when somethings is in front of me than when I'm working from memory.
