SOURCE: windsor sensor says bag is full when its not

Underneath the machine is an inspection door to check for blockages. To open the door, press down the catch on the door.

Blockages in the neck can be checked by first lifting off the dust bag housing.

SOURCE: No Power to Windsor Sensor XP12

The Windsor Sensor vacs all have a removable handle.

The handle is inserted into a "socket" which has contacts to complete the electrical circuit.

The handle is held in place by a gray plastic lever.

If the lever is not pressed down completely, the handle is able to slide within the socket during regular use.

If the handle slides out far enough, the electrical connection within will be disconnected and the vac will have no power.

Simply lift the lever, pull up to remove the handle, and re-insert the handle fully, then press down firmly on the lever to lock the handle securely in place.

This is the first step to solve your problem and hopefully this is all that need to be done.

If this does not work, please repost here and I will help you all I can.

Note: I am a big fan of the Windsor Sensor vacs and find them to be easy to work on and a great vac all around!

SOURCE: how do you change the belt on a winsor sensor s12?

Step 1. Remove the vacuum bag housing so that you are only working with the power nozzle or the bottom portion of your Sebo, this will make it much easier to work with. Turn the vacuum upside down, and remove only the 5 screws that I have circled in red:

Step 2. After removing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner, separate the top housing from the lower agitator housing, sometimes it may take putting a flat head screw driver in between the white and grey colored housing and prying them apart.

Step 3. You now have full access to the belts on your machine. It's most likely the belt that wraps around the brush gear rather then the belt that's attached to the motor that's gone bad. I have never replaced the motor belt in 8 years of servicing Windsor vacuums.

If you have any further questions on how to replace the belt, please feel free to reply to this repair by leaving your question in the comment section, I'm always more then happy to answer any question you may have.

Thanks again,

How to fix sensor s12. red light for bag stays on even when vacuum bag is not full and the vacuum is clear


You most likely will need to change the Yoke assembly. There is a sensor built in that gets clogged with fine debris over time. This will take care of the problem.

Check the line going from the bottom of the vacuum to the bag, it may be clogged. A coat hanger can help you clear any jams, but be careful not to puncture the duct.

The handle release on windsor s12 won't spring into place


You likely have one of two problems. Your return spring is broken, or your axle is bent. If your axle is bent, carefully inspect your chassis to be sure that the bent axle has not cracked or otherwise damaged the chassis. I have included a parts list as well as some links to these parts for your reference. http://windsorvacuums.com/partslists/s12_PARTS.pdf 2010 Axle Spring 86146570 windsor allstar javelin 5053 Windsor Sensor Axle 86137990 allstar javelin

I have a Windsor Sensor s12 and power shuts off after 5 min. of vacuuming. I'm wondering if it's overheating of if there is some other sensor that causes it to shut off.


Your Sensor most likely has an internal heat sensor that is shutting off the motor. Some vacuums install an external heat sensor with a reset button that you must push to re-start the vacuum. If your model does not have an external reset button it is most likely a sensor inside the motor. If it is defective the motor must be replaced to solve the problem. But first make sure the overheating is not being caused by a blockage somewhere or the bag is too full. Air must pass completely through a vacuum starting at the floor where it picks up the dirt through all the canisters, filters, bags, etc. and then is exhausted from the vacuum. Any restrictions or blockage can cause the motor to over heat.

Sensor xp 15 shutting down


If you have one of your red lights flashing or on all the time that will indicate where you need to look for your repair. Beater bar light will indicate a brush roll replacement and the bag light indicates a need to empty the bag or look for a clog somewhere in the air flow area of the hose or wand. These machines are designed to shut down if you keep trying to run them with a red light coming on.

I have windsor s12 vaccum this one have brush up light on


The windsor Sensor brush indicator light will come on when:

  • Something stuck in the brushroller
  • Brushroller is worn and needs replacement
  • height is wrong (indicates a problem with height adjustment)
  • a bad circut board/sensor
more than likely your brushroller just needs to be replaced, very common.

Vaccum doesn't have power.


I had one of these come in for service, a new mainboard was the solution. They're getting power if the lights come on. The board just isn't letting it go.

Best of Luck!

My windsor s12 vacuum light says the bag is full but it is new?


It sounds like a blockage in the hose or in the yolk.I believe you can remove the hose from the machine to inspect and clear it.Also check the trapdoor on the bottom of the powerhead to be sure it is clear.While you are going through the machine check under the upright filter next to the bag to see if it is clear.Good Luck-Scott
