Product Description

Kenmore Bagless Compact Canister Vacuum - Lightweight

Versatile and compact, this Kenmore bagless canister vacuum is light and easy to use. Cleaning floors, carpets and rugs is simple with its 3-speed adjustable motor and retractable cord. Plus there's no more replacing bags with this bagless canister vacuum: the transparent dust bin shows you exactly when it's time to empty the canister. Its compact size makes it easy to lift and store while its 360-degree swivel hose and cyclonic design give you all the cleaning power you'd expect from a Kenmore vacuum.

  • Innovative Cyclonic Design uses centrifugal force to create powerful, consistent suction that pulls dirt and hair easily from carpet fibers, cracks and upholstery.
  • The 360-degree swivel hose eliminates twisting and tangling, so you have the flexibility you need for a deep clean in any direction.
  • The LED electronic indicator lets you know when the dust bag is full or the hose is clogged, so you can fix it quickly and get back to cleaning.
  • Easy on the back, a foot-activated power switch turns the vaccuum on and off without any bending over, so you don’t have to stoop to get a deep clean.
  • Built to eliminate the trouble and tangle of rolling up the cord by hand, the retractable cord mechanism engages with the push of a button, wrapping up the job in seconds.

  • Available for Gift Wrap

Great Little Vac
I bought this vacuum for a vacation home and it works great. The compact size and bagless feature makes it easy to use and store. It can be used on several different type of floor surfaces with ease.

Do not purchase this POS!
I had a magic blue from Kenmore for 10 years. It was probably the best vacuum for bare floors. It finally broke. This was the only vacuum that resembled what I had. It's fu$#ing horrible!!! The floor attachment has these stupid bristles that raise and lower. When raised they clog up with hair dust ETC... or you can lower the bristles so it basically scratches the **** out of the floors. The canister doesn't even fill because everything gets stuck right before it reaches the canister. Do not purchase this POS! I wasted $70.00 on this. I really hope Kenmore reads these reviews... You used to make an amazing higher quality bagged vacuum named Magic Blue. Was perfect for bare floors. The bare floor attachment had small wheels on the bottom. You really need to re think this "replacement" it's FU##ING HORRIBLE!!!

Do Not Buy

We got this vacuum as a Christmas gift last year and it is the worst vacuum we have ever had. It has little to no suction. You would be better off picking up stuff from the floor/carpet with your hands. Would not recommend or buy this vacuum again.

Horrible design

I bought this vacuum as a spare for vacuuming the pet hair and dirt on the kitchen floor and in the garage. The canister is small but because of the design it fills up so quickly and then gets clogged in the tube. Numerous times I have had to stick my hand up in the canister to try and unclog it. I am so disappointed with this vacuum.

Canister vac

Worst vacuum I have purchased. Not only is it difficult to vacuum with due to the design of the floor tool, debris gets stuck in the chamber just past the intake and causes the vacuum to have little to no suction. I have had to literally take the dust bin apart and manually remove the debris before using it. The floor brush does not have any wheels so it doesn't go over a rug with out a lot of manuvering. Don't like this one at all.

Kenmore bagless canister vacuum

Love the ease, compactness and suction is great....the only problem is the weight of the actual hose attachment when vacuuming carpet, it is not heavy enough.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good but not great

I loved my old kenmoore red bagless canister vac, this was the next one that sears made to replace it. It picks up well but it has metal on the bottom of the brush witch scratches the floor. I have bought 4 of these in the last year due to the handle breaking off. although sears took them back it is a big inconvience . Please fix the handle problem!!! I recommend this product if you fix this problem.

Shame on you Kenmore

Not going to be reporting on anything that hasn't already been said in previous reviews, merely going to emphasize what sucks about this item. Should have know, for $50 what I would be getting, but we had a Kenmore canister vac before and it lasted something like 10-15 years. Don't expect to get that kind of endurance out of this sorry excuse for a vacuum cleaner. I can't actually complain too much about the suction and the variable control is nice. That is about the only redeeming feature of this POS. As has been mentioned before, the plastic is thin and cheap. Cracked the end of one of the tubes trying to vacuum a rug and when I called to try to get a replacement, was told that parts are not made for this disposable vacuum cleaner. Wish I had kept the tubes from the old one, you could break some bones with those things. The floor attachment sucks so badly(no pun intended), it's amazing. You'd think they would have put some rollers on the bottom, but no, let's let the consumer just scratch the bejesus out of their floors. No wait, we can give them bristles they can lower! Yeah, but they just push the dirt around and prevents it from getting sucked into the vacuum. And the system to raise and lower the bristles is a joke too. They are plastic tabs that alternately move up and down, depending on if the bristles are up or down. Beneath each tab is a plastic piece that keeps the tab in place, but when you lower the bristles on my attachment, that plastic piece now comes out of the attachment housing and instead of just being able to push it back down with the foot as it is meant to be used, I have to lift the attachment off the floor and push that plastic piece back in. I can't complain too much about the dirt canister, although it does get plugged up at times, but we have a dog that sheds like crazy, so it is to be expected and the the section that does get plugged easily can be removed and the clog removed. I will also add that I was very disappointed with the customer service that Sears/Kenmore provided me. Or should I say, did not provide me. The first time I called in, I was kind of shuffled around and nobody knew about getting parts, etc. One agent was actually pretty rude and condescending to me. Only wish I had gotten that a$$clown's name. With no success in getting replacement parts, I finally had to call Sears in Chicago and request to speak with a VP for Kenmore(even though there isn't a separate division) and finally managed to get a measly $50 gift card for my trouble. And I still have a piece of shyt vacuum that is frustrating as all get out. Never again, will I buy a Kenmore. And people wonder why others are willing to shell out hundreds for a Dyson. Most expensive isn't always best, but inexpensive usually sucks. Since I can only answer yes or no to the below questions, I would never, ever recommend this item to a friend, relative or acquaintance. Heck, I wouldn't even recommend this item to my worst enemy!!!
