When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions must always be followed. The use of the machine is
at your own risk.
The manufacturer/supplier is not liable for any injury or damage caused by incorrect usage of
Always check the cleaning and maintenance instructions of your floor manufacturer.
WARNING! The quality, condition, coating, texture, age and manufacturing technique of all floor surfaces vary. Therefore, machines with rotating pads, including your SEBO DISCO, may damage some floor surfaces. Some types of hardwood floors, cushion
vinyl, cork and porous stone or tile are particularly vulnerable to damage by rotating brushes or pads. When possible, consult the materials
supplied by your floor’s manufacturer for information on proper upkeep and cleaning. To ensure that your new SEBO DISCO is
compatible with your floor, please test the polisher on each type of flooring surface in a small inconspicuous area to determine
if any damage occurs. If damage occurs, stop using the polisher immediately!

Your SEBO DISCO
ultra-high-speed suction polisher is a high quality,
reliable, innovative product that has been developed
and made in Germany with the most modern technology.
The 2,000 rpm disc speed combined with an
appropriate floor maintenance product creates a
protective floor coating with a high gloss finish.
By using the floor polisher at regular intervals, it
will protect your hard floors against cracks, dirt
and dampness and will retain the value and beauty of
the surface. An important feature is its ability to
“monitor” the resistance of the floor pad against
the floor, so that the proper height is consistently
maintained. In addition, the machine has warning
systems and automatic shut-off capabilities that are
designed to alert the user to machine problems that,
if ignored, will damage the machine or diminish
Your SEBO Disco's five most unique features are:
height adjustment. The Sebo Disco adjusts the
floor pad automatically to the appropriate floor
height. The torque of the rotating floor pad is
constantly measured ensuring optimal performance
on hard floor surfaces.
The 90 degree
vertical and 180-degree horizontal swivel neck
allows the Sebo Disco to move with easy around
furniture and into tight spaces.
and rolling castors. The Sebo Disco has two soft
bumpers to protect your furniture and walls
against scratches and scuffing. The Disco head
glides on three rubber-coated castors that will
not mark your flooring. At the rear are two
360-degree flexible castors which are fixed on a
solid steel shaft. The castor in the center
supports and stabilized the head. The flexible
castors along with the turning swivel neck
assure smooth maneuverability.
protection. When the machine has its handle in
the upright locked position, it is designed to
disengage from the floor by raising the height
of the floor pad. The pad will stop spinning. An
operating machine should not stand stationary on
the floor for inappropriate periods of time. if
the floor pad should come in contact with
carpet, the pad will raise from the floor and
Bag full or
clog warning - auto shut-off. If the polisher or vacuum’s air flow pathway becomes
restricted due to a full bag or the existence of a clog, the red LED light located on top of the DISCO will
illuminate. If the user ignores this warning for approximately 30 seconds, the machine will shut off. 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 8). If the user restarts the machine without having
solved the problem, the red LED light will again illuminate and the machine will shut off in 30 seconds.
Fit the floor pad (13)
to the pad retainer (14), using the notches as a
guide for correct position. Press the pad down onto
the pad retainer (14) until it locks in place. See
Press the retainer tabs (15) in using your thumb and
forefinger and turn the pad clockwise until it locks
into place again. See figure 2
To attach the DISCO to your SEBO FELIX, C3.1 or K3:
place the DISCO on the floor with the swivel neck
(5) upright. Hold the vacuum vertically and Insert
the suction opening of the FELIX (16) or the
electric telescopic tube (17) of your C3.1 or K3
into the swivel neck of the head. Push firmly and
evenly downward until the head release button (6)
snaps into the locked position. See figure 3.
To attach the DISCO to your central vac wand: Use
the SEBO adapter (#18, figure 4 - part # 2780AM)
Remove as much furniture as possible, and cover any
left in place.
First Cleaning: 1. Vacuum the floor thoroughly before using the
SEBO DISCO for the first time, ensuring it is
completely free of debris, such as grit.
2. Add some floor maintainer to the water, as per
the instructions, if required, and clean the floor
with a mop. Wait for the floor to dry completely
before proceeding to step 3.
3. Apply an appropriate floor maintenance product*
in accordance with the instructions. Before
polishing the floor, ensure that the floor is
completely dry then proceed to step 4.
4.Move the SEBO DISCO slowly over the floor similar
to how you would use your vacuum cleaner.
Regular polishing of the coating will maintain an
even finish and will ensure a longer lasting bright
appearance of the floor. Vacuum the floor first,
before using the polisher, to remove dirt and dust.
NOTE: Vacuum the floor surface THOROUGHLY before
using the polisher. Grit and debris left on the
floor can cause damage. Always inspect the pad
before use - any grit that becomes embedded in the
pad can damage your floor.
Floor Suitability * Please refer to the maintenance guide of the
manufacturers of your floors for recommended
maintenance and floor maintainers.
** Please note that
damage may occur if used on these types of floors.
WARNING! The quality, condition, coating,
texture, age and manufacturing technique of all
floor surfaces vary. Therefore, machines with
rotating pads, including your SEBO DISCO, may damage
some floor surfaces. Some types of hardwood floors,
cushion vinyl, cork and porous stone or tile are
particularly vulnerable to damage by rotating
brushes or pads. When possible, consult the
materials supplied by your floor’s manufacturer for
information on proper upkeep and cleaning. To ensure
that your new SEBO DISCO is compatible with your
floor, please test the polisher on each type of
flooring surface in a small inconspicuous area to
determine if any damage occurs. If damage occurs,
stop using the polisher immediately!
the Machine Before turning on your vacuum cleaner with the Disco
attached, make sure that the vacuum handle is in its upright
locked position and that you have a firm hold on the handle
grip to keep the machine from moving forward.

Operating the Machine NOTE: The Sebo Disco has a soft-start system, so there
may be a slight delay before it operates.
When the machine is switched on with the handle in the
upright and locked position, the Disco pad will
automatically raise from the floor and will stop spinning.
To release the polisher from the upright locked position,
press down on the foot pedal and lower the handle into the
normal operating position. The Disco pad will automatically
lower to the appropriate height and will start spinning.
When finished, switch the machine off and remain holding the
vacuum cleaner firmly until the floor pad stops rotating.
Then, return the handle to its upright locked position.
LED Display The green LED light indicates that the floor polisher is
powered on and operational.
If the airflow pathway becomes restricted due to a clog or
full bag the red LED light will illuminate and the machine
will shut off. If this occurs, turn the power switch off,
unplug the machine and immediately check for clogs in the
Disco head. If no clog is found, check for clogs in the
vacuum cleaner or for a full dust bag.
Always unplug vacuum from outlet
before dismantling any part of the
the Floor Pad
