Description of Sebo essential G Vacuum Cleaners

The Essential G series upright vacuum cleaners are SEBO's most cost-effective upright vacuum for those with wall-to-wall carpeting. They are incredibly powerful and we have seen dirt literally jump off the floor towards the vacuum! These vacuums are lighter than most uprights, but quality is not compromised. They have S-Class filtration (meets HEPA standard) and legendary quality engineering. The G Series have the ability to bend at the handle 180° parallel to the floor, allowing you to reach far under beds and furniture with only 5.5" of clearance needed. Includes SEBO's 7-yr warranty on motor, 5-yr warranty on parts, labor.

  • The Essential G has excellent suction power thanks to a powerful 1300 watt motor.
  • Despite the very powerful motor, the noise level is moderate and we did not find it overbearing and were still able to hear the phone ring.
  • The Essential G's move effortlessly thanks to their lightweight design, ergonomic operating handle, easy glide wheels and self propelled power head.
  • Smart electronic sensors monitor the G's performance and will automatically shut off if the brush roll is jammed or there is a problem. This is not only a safety feature but it eliminates the potential of destroying the belt and motor.
  • Sebo has designed all of their vacuums to be easy to maintain. Filters, bags and even the brush roll are easily accessible and can be changed in less than a minute.
  • Low 5.5" profile and ability to lay the vacuum flat on the floor allows for easy cleaning under beds, dressers, couches, etc. This feature was appreciated by all of our testers.
  • It is very easy to use the onboard stretch hose and wand for above floor cleaning on the fly. The hose and wand is located at the side of the vacuum and effortlessly slides in and out of place. The onboard full-size crevice and upholstery tools are very easy to put on and switch between so you can reach into deep crevices, clean the stairs and dust the ceiling corners without having to go back to the closet to find the right tools.
  • Manual brush height adjustment on the power head allows you to select the proper brush height for the carpet type being cleaned to provide optimum cleaning effectiveness.
  • A handy incorrect height setting indicator light will illuminate red to indicate you are not on the correct setting for the floor type being cleaned.
  • The large 1.4 gallon vacuum cleaner bags hold a lot and seem to last and last.
  • Sebo's S-class filtration and sealed design keeps dust and dirt particles inside the vacuum, maintaining clean and fresh indoor air.
  • Excellent 7 yr warranty on motor, 5 yr for parts and labor protects your investment.


  • Sebo's dust bags are made of paper instead of a filtering fiber cloth. Fiber dust bags seem to be more durable and increase airflow and filtration efficiency.
  • Because the Essential G does not have adjustable suction control, the suction power and brush roll agitation is very strong and may be too much to use on delicate or natural fiber rugs and lightweight items such as curtains or small bathroom rugs.
  • The brush roll on the Essential G cannot be turned off and it does not come with the seal strip behind the brush roll like the X series which improves hard floor cleaning by channeling the airflow and preventing debris kickback. Therefore, this vacuum is not ideal for bare floors or delicate rugs.


The Sebo Essential G upright vacuum cleaners are designed for carpeted homes. They are not a fancy vacuum but instead improve on the basic functions of an upright vacuum, power, filtration, and easy to use. It has a lightweight user friendly design that has power control on the handle and a 4 stage manual brush height adjustment on the power head. However, don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the controls, inside the Essential G is an electronic controller that acts as a brain monitoring a warning system that not only alerts the user to problems such as clogs, a worn brush, a full bag, improper brush height for floor type, but also will automatically shut the vacuum off to prevent over heating or damage.

The Essential G vacuums have excellent suction power fueled by their 1300 single speed motor. They easily remove deep embedded dirt and rejuvenate carpet pile on the first pass. Though you have to manually adjust the brush height for optimal cleaning effectiveness as you move from one carpet type to the next, the power head lends a helping hand by signaling if you are not on the optimum height setting illuminating a red light. If you have a large home with an open floor plan the Essential G2 with a 15" power head will let you cover more area in a shorter amount of time. For those with smaller homes or lots of furniture the Essential G1 is a better option because of its smaller 12" power head.

The Essential G vacuums are not designed to clean bare flooring. This limitation should be taken into consideration when purchasing this vacuum. We would have liked the Essential G's to include the option to turn the brush roll off so they could be used on bare floors. Also, the G series power heads do not have a seal strip behind the brush roll like the power heads on the X series which would have allowed them to be used on bare floors without kicking dirt around. However, on the flip side, this makes the Essential G series the perfect choice for someone who has wall to wall carpeting and wishes to maximize their cleaning.

The Essential G is the lightest upright vacuum made by Sebo, contributing to its ease of use. They work great on all types of carpets and do an awesome job at sucking up pet hair. The vacuum comes with a very high quality crevice tool, upholstery tool and dusting brush. The crevice tool and upholstery tool are stored on the back of the vacuum where they are always ready to use along with the instant-use wand and suction hose. We recommend the purchase of the handheld turbo brush and the 3 piece attachment set for a complete set of cleaning tools to tackle all your cleaning needs. We have sold Sebos for many years with zero complaints and very little returns. That is a pretty impressive track record. These are powerful, upright vacuum cleaners and are built to last for 15 to 20 years.
