We have the Sebo Felix upright - purchased under one year - the cable from the top of handle is faulty - we have had to wrap duct tape around the cable for the hoover to work. My Son has the same problem - Sebo is not interested - said it was my fault for wrapping up too tightly. Can send back for repair if I pay for the expense - warranty does not cover faulty wiring, even though this is a design fault. Customer service very poor. This hoover is also a risk of falling over easily unless… Read Full Review

Very heavy and awkward to use. You must always have 2 hands available to vacuum due to bending down to adjust the height while the other holds the machine. No more vacuuming and dusting at the same time. I have all hard surface floors and a varity of area rugs. I have to lift this heavy machine up each time to the area rugs and re-adjust the height continually. The machine is too big to go under the toekicks in my kitchen or under the bed or sofa. I must have a left handed one because the… Read Full Review

Went shopping for a pet Dyson but bought a Sebo Felix Premium, and never looked back..." We went shopping to replace our late 1990's vintange Hoover upright. Based on distribution of reviews we were set to buy Dyson pet vacuum. (The LG vacuums were considered until we saw the monster size/wieght) The first good impression of the sebo was its compact size and a power head that is as equally maneuverable as the dyson ball. Suction was actually better then the above competitor. (Especially… Read Full Review

I love the sebo felix but I have had a couple of problems with it!
Shortly after purchase, the button on the roller head would not stay down. It was totally jammed. I rang sebo and they had someone pick it up (you have to package it securely and box it). It was promptly returned.
The same problem has just occurred and now they are trying to make me pay £55 as they claim it was fine when they received it! I went through all the checks on the phone, with the advisor from sebo and 3 adults at home… Read Full Review

BEWARE! There is an issue with this product - there is a design fault with the cable. Where it enters the handle it is forced to bend at almost 90' after time it wears through and the appliance stops working. SEBO UK will fix this - for a charge - having denied it is an issue and excluding it from the guarantee.
Other than that the machine works as well as it should in this price range. It is more style over substance than anything. The hose is very short and it has a tendency to topple when… Read Full Review

great vacuum cleaner , makes other machines seem cumbersome to use, well screwed together, gives a serious clean and is quiet, i like the fact it has a bag, you can cap it and put it in the kitchen bin rather than running out in the rain to the outdoor bin as you do with usual bag or bagless vacuums… Read Full Review

This cleaner is very heavy and awkward to clean stairs. because of its large bulk it is unsteady and it has actually toppled down my stairs on its own accord when left on the top step damaging my paintwork and actually falling on me on more than one occasion.
good suction, looks nice, goes under alot of low furniture but you need to be strong to carry it… Read Full Review

I bought a Sebo Felix all floors which was recommended by Good Housekeeping but am very disappointed with it. It's very heavy to push around, won't pick up cotton or fluff on a rug or carpet and doesn't have great suction when on the highest setting. The parquet foot which is a brush is much smaller and quite good on hard floors but although lighter than the carpet foot is still heavy and awkward to manoeuvre especially over door threshholds. There is no handle to lift the cleaner with which… Read Full Review

The Sebo Felix 1 Premiums is a superb vacuum cleaner, really manoeuvrable, the cleaning head is able to go under radiators, sofas, low tables, etc. without any bother. Picks up well. Makes cleaning much quicker… Read Full Review

Not expensive when compared to more costly cleaners that leak dust
The Sebo Felix 1 Premium is very well engineered and the brush auto height sets according to carpet thickness and works very effectivly
This is the best vacuum cleaner we have had… Read Full Review

This Sebo Felix 1 Premium is an excellent vacuum cleaner, very efficient, strong build and great design. Easy to use with no fiddly bits. Not many things come with a free five year guarantee as standard nowadays! Great price too for such superior quality.

I love Vorwerk and have the Kobold 131. The only negative is I am the only one in the United States with the 131, it was never sold here. Bags are tough to get and caring around 25 pound 220 volt transformer was getting old. The best way to describe the Sebo Felix is it a better built more powerful Vowerk 131 0r 135 model. The design is the same, although I like the green and white Vorwerk look better. If you live in the US and love Vorwek go Sebo Felix… Read Full Review

We have used Vorwerk vaccum for the past 20 years - they are excellent machines, last for a long time and do what they say they do. When our second Vorwerk expired, the current replacement cost of over £800 would have been ridiculous. To replace the head alone (which had broken beyond economic repair) would have cost £220, almost as much as the complete Sebo Felix. On purchase of the Sebo Felix, it was found to be more powerful, easier to use and more versatile that the Vorwek. Consumables for… Read Full Review

After 2 Dyson vacuum cleaners, which both broke; my Sebo Felix Premium has, to my annoyance, beat their record after only 10 weeks! In my view it is not fit for the purpose.
I would recommend something like the Sebo X4… Read Full Review

Having endured other 'leading brands' vacuum cleaners, which let us down (you can guess who). We were recommended to Sebo by a friend (frankly we had never heard of them). We looked on this site and saw other reviewers appeared to be happy. We looked on the Sebo website and noticed that they have won a few 'Good Housekeeping' awards, and decided to 'go for it'.
They are not cheap (but we have been down that route before!), but the Sebo Felix Premium is 'the business'. It is self propelled… Read Full Review
