Question about Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum
Changed vacuum bag cleaned out sensor brush, filter, hose and tube
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.

SOURCE: 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!

The sensor is a small hole into the vacuum chamber. It moves the alert system as vacuum inside the unit builds up.
The filtration, built into the bag, is getting filled up and creating a higher vacuum inside the unit, giving a false reading. The only ways to eliminate this are to give the bag a shake to clear some of the dirt out of the filter, try to pick up coarser dirt first or buy generic bags-without the filtration.

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!

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.
