IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS MACHINE
!
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions must always be followed.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this vacuum cleaner has a polarized plug; one blade is wider than
the other. This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way. Connect only to the outlet type specified on the serial number plate underneath the machine.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

SPECIAL SEBO PRODUCT FEATURES
Your SEBO FELIX vacuum is among the most technically advanced vacuum cleaners in the world. Some of its
unique features are:
• S-Class Filtration. Certified by leading Allergy foundations in Europe, the FELIX vacuum provides the user
with S-Class filtration of 99.9% of particles to 0.3 microns. This is accomplished by the SEBO three-step filtration system. First, the three-layer full-size filter bag (A) collects the vast majority of the debris. Then, the
remainder of the particles are collected by the motor protection filter (B) which is positioned underneath the
filter bag. Finally, the electrostatic exhaust filter (C) cleans the exhaust air that the vacuum emits. With 250
square inches of surface, the exhaust filter absorbs even the smallest particles. SEBO’s unwavering attention
to the complete sealing of the machine ensures no dirt escapes around the filters. If the filters are changed
regularly (every 10-20 bags), the FELIX is perfect for allergy or asthma sufferers.
• Bag Full or Clog Warning Light – Auto Shut-Off. If the vacuum’s air flow pathway becomes restricted
due to a full bag or the existence of a clog, the orange “BAG FULL OR CLOG” indicator will display. If the user
ignores this warning, the suction motor will heat up due to the lack of cooling provided by the airflow. Once the
motor reaches a certain temperature it will shut off to protect itself from damage. The user should turn the
switch off, unplug the machine and immediately insert a new bag or remove the clog (to remove a clog, refer
to the Clog Removal section on page 10). After approximately 30 minutes, the motor will have cooled and the
vacuum can be restarted. If the airflow is still restricted, the “BAG FULL OR CLOG” indicator will again display
and the machine will shut off.
• FELIX Flexibility. The unique design of the FELIX offers flexibility and ease of use:
D. Detachable Suction Unit – When detached from the power head or floor tool, the FELIX transforms itself
into a lightweight, powerful suction unit, which can be carried around using its comfortable carrying handle.
Ideal for cleaning stairs, car interiors or upholstery.
E. Turning swivel neck – on-hand maneuverability. The swivel neck of the FELIX gives 90º vertical and 180º
horizontal movement, providing superb maneuverability for easy cleaning around and under obstacles.
F. Flat and flexible – With its 6-inch profile and flat-to-the-floor design, the SEBO FELIX makes cleaning under
furniture and hard-to-reach places easy.

!
WARNING! The quality, condition, coating, texture, age and manufacturing technique of all floor surfaces vary.
Therefore, vacuums with rotating brushes, including your SEBO, may damage some floor coverings or surfaces. Some types
of high-gloss hardwood floors, cushion vinyl, berber carpets, long shag, and delicate or hand-woven carpets are particularly vulnerable to damage by rotating brushes. When possible, consult the materials supplied by your flooring manufacturer for information on proper upkeep and cleaning. To ensure that your new SEBO vacuum cleaner is compatible with your floor, please
test the vacuum cleaner on each type of flooring surface in a small inconspicuous area to determine if any damage occurs.
If damage occurs, stop using the vacuum cleaner immediately!

ADDITIONAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ET POWER HEADS
Operating with the ET Power Head - Figures 8, 9 & 10
When the power head is on with the handle in the upright locked position (see figure 8),
the brush roller on your ET power head will not spin.
To release the ET-1 or ET-2 power head from the upright locked position, press down on
the foot pedal (#15, figure 9) and lower the handle into the normal operating position. The
brush roller will then start spinning and the green light on the power head will illuminate. The handle can be lowered to a horizontal position useful for vacuuming under
beds.
Figure 8
NOTE: the brush roller is off and stopped only when the machine is in an upright position
and the handle is completely locked in place, or when the hose handle is removed from
the side of the vacuum. If you have the machine at an angle, the brush roller will spin.
Leaving the machine in a stationary position for an extended period of time while the
brush roller is spinning may cause damage to your floor or carpet. You may also switch
off the brush roller by pressing the on/off switch (#35, figure 11) on the top of the power
head.
15
You may adjust the suction control with the power control slider (#3, figure 5) as you vacuum different surfaces or when using the accessory tools. For optimal cleaning and
brushing, operate the machine at the maximum suction power setting and push the
power head slowly over the carpet.
Figure 9
Always turn the power switch off when changing heads or unplugging the vacuum.
Slide the power control slider on to its OFF position, then unplug the vacuum when
changing heads or storing the vacuum. NOTE: When switching off the power switch,
always make sure the switch “clicks” into the OFF position before unplugging the power
cord.
20
The use of a power head is recommended for the optimal cleaning of carpets. The rotating of the swivel neck (#20, figure 10) allows the power head to move in any direction.
The Brush Height Adjustment Feature - Figure 11
To manually adjust the brush height, rotate the dial (33) for high carpet (dial
setting 4) and progressively lower to bare floor (dial setting 1). The amber light
located on top of the power head (34) will illuminate if the height setting is too
high. Dial down to the next number until the amber light turns off. If the amber
light does not turn off, the brush roller may be worn.

Figure 11
By pushing the foot pedal (figure 9) and lowering the handle, you activate the power head and the brush begins spinning.
Failure to use the foot pedal will cause lasting damage to the machine. The electronic brush control constantly monitors the
status of the brush, communicating the status through the lights on top.
Green and Amber Light:
(34 and 35, figure 11)
The brush is not fully engaged in the carpet. The height adjustment should be lowered. If the
height adjustment is at its lowest setting, the brush is worn and needs to be replaced.
Green Light Only:
(34, figure 11)
Brush is working well. We strongly recommend selecting a brush height that is only one level
beneath that at which both the green and amber lights are on. For maximum cleaning performance, the brush height adjustment can be lowered to its lowest setting.
Amber Light Only:
(34, figure 11)
The brush is blocked. Turn off the machine, unplug it, and then remove the blockage.
To clean delicate or hard floor surfaces, the power head is equipped with an on/off switch (# 35, figure11). When this switch
is used to turn off the brush roller, the green indicator light is also turned off.

VACUUM MAINTENANCE
!
Always unplug vacuum from outlet
before dismantling any part of machine!
7
When the “bag full” indicator (7) displays, airflow is reduced due to
a full filter bag, dirty filters, or a clog. If the filter bag is empty and
the filters are clean, you may have a clog. Refer to page 10.
Changing the Filter Bag - Figures 17 & 18
To change the filter bag, set the canister upright, open the filter bag
cover (8) by pulling the cover release flap (10) upward (figure 17).
Seal the filter bag with the sealing cap (42). Grasp the sealing plate
(44) of the filter bag with your thumb and forefinger as shown in figure 18 and lift the filter bag (43) out. Lower a new bag into the holder, making sure that the 4 small tabs (indicated by arrows on the
sealing plate) fit into the appropriate grooves. The front tab (45) of
the sealing plate will fit loosely over the wire latch lock. Push the
filter bag cover (8) down firmly and snap the cover release flap (10)
into place. For your convenience, there is a diagram on every filter
bag showing the correct placement of the bag. Do not re-use the
filter bags. NOTE: the nature of the contents of the filter bag will
affect the point at which it needs changing. Fine dust may require
an earlier change even though the bag is not full. Fluff or hair allows
air to pass through easily, so the filter bag may overfill before the
orange “bag full” indicator displays.
Changing the Motor Protection Filter - Figure 19
After 10 to 20 bags have been used, change the motor protection
filter (46). To remove the micro-hygiene filter, set the vacuum
upright, pull the cover release flap (10) outward and open the filter bag cover (8). Remove the filter bag (see above). Grasp the
handle (47) on the filter and pull it out. To replace, use the handle
(47) to hold on to and slide the new filter down into the bottom of
the filter bag housing. When correctly seated, it will snap into
place. Insert the filter bag, close the filter bag cover.

reinforced strips out of the housing slot (48), and remove the filter.
To replace the filter, insert the reinforced strip on one end of the filter into the housing slot (48) and hold in place with one hand while
wrapping the filter around the machine, pulling it taught. While
holding the filter together, insert the top of the reinforced strip into
the slot. While holding the top of the strip in place, push the rest of
the strip firmly into the slot. Replace the retaining rings. NOTE:
when reassembling, please ensure that the exhaust filter is fitted
correctly in the housing slots and the filter retaining rings are
installed correctly. Otherwise, the filter will be ineffective.

CLOG REMOVAL
!
Always unplug vacuum from outlet before removing any clogs!
When the “bag full” indicator (7, figure 21) displays, airflow is reduced due to a full filter
bag, dirty filters, or a clog. If the indicator is still displayed after the filter bag has been
changed and the filters are in good condition, there is likely a blockage in the system.

Clogs in the Hose - Figure 21, 22, 23 & 24
Check for suction at the end of the hose (6) by pulling the hose handle (19) out of the
suction opening (18). If you can only feel a small amount of suction, the clog is in the
hose. To clear a blockage in the hose, hold the hose handle upright with one hand
blocking the top and switch on the machine. Quickly lift your hand on and off the end
of the hose. If that does not clear the clog, you may also clear clogs by reversing the
hose. To remove the hose from the machine, lift the filter bag cover. Loosen the safety ring (#49, figure 23) located inside the cover by pushing the lever clockwise as
shown in figure 23. Remove the hose. Close the filter bag cover and insert the hose
handle into the connecting tube (#50, figure 24) of the filter cover. Hold the hose
upright with one hand blocking the top and switch on the machine. If necessary, quickly lift your hand on and off the end of the hose. When the clog is cleared, remove the
hose handle from the connecting tube. Loosen the safety ring (#49) and insert the
other end of the hose back into the connecting tube. Release the safety ring so that it
secures the hose. Make sure the hose is connected, then close the filter bag cover.
