This is the most powerful canister yet. The power head it a little heavy, but this machine rocks.

Went through 2 in a month, then returned for a refund!
Bought the first one and in 8 days the power head stopped working, took it back and they gave me a new one. Had it for less then a month and the same thing happened again. In the telescopic tube is a flexible power strip that is apparently under sized and it burns out under the load required to power the carpet beater. Other than the fact that it just didn't work, I loved it. It's definitely the most powerful vacuum I've ever used, it just has a serious design flaw. I would'nt reccomend this vacuum to anyone. Under the 30 day satifaction guarantee I was able to recover all of my money including the money I spent on the service agreement when I bought the second one. If it had happened any later I would have been stuck with it and had to take it in for repairs. It probably would have been an on going thing, so I got lucky on that part. Now we have to find another vacuum.

Disappointed

We should have checked reviews prior to purchasing this Elite vacuum. As with other comments, the telescoping wand extends the full length when vacuuming. The machine is also heavy and clumsey to manuever. We had it 2 days and returned it to Sears. I still miss it however due to the many wonderful features and the great job it does. If Sears corrects the design flaws, they will have a great product.

Worst $600 spent

$600 vacuum cleaner that I can't even use now 5 months after I purchased it and can not return because I purchased from sears and there return policy is only 3 months. Next time I will but from ****** or another place that takes returns for up to a year. I hardly used this vacuum cleaner but it has cheap plastic parts holding essential pieces of the vacuum into place and the piece that suctions and attached to the floor piece cracked and now I can't stay attached so $600 down the drain beyond pissed. They can fix it but I don't want this vacuum so still not happy word of advice don't purchase from sears if it's something that could possibly have a defect .

Love it

This vacuum is a must have if you have carpet and hard surfaces. I just tried a door-to-door salesman's Kirby ( I would have paid the $2500 for the vacuum if it was better than my Kenmore, but wasn't). Here are the reasons I chose to keep my Kenmore canister over the Kirby vacuum: easy detachable head, easy rotation of hose on canister, excellent suction (salesman's model had a suction of 10 right the motor, canister had a 9 at the end of the 7 foot hose!1), moves from throw rug to bare floor with ease, adjustable suction, easy to detach head to vacuum along baseboards, retractable cord, picks up small stones and sand even with the power head attached (don't have to always change to the hard floor attachment for little areas), lighter weight, easier to push forward, though I will say that on new medium pile carpet with high suction and low head height it is very difficult to push unless you raise the power head height. I have had this vacuum for 4 months and have yet to have a problem. I will say that I love my Kenmore canister vacuums but have had to replace them more often then I would have liked, therefore I would never purchase one without the extended warranty, they are not build as sturdy as they used to be. I use mine everyday and it does an excellent job picking up the farm dirt that is tracking in by a household of 6 and the long hair from my four girls. THIS IS THE BEST CANISTER VACCUM I HAVE USED and am thinking of buying another one for the basement.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Fantastic Vacuum

Excellent suction and maneuverability. The long hose and wand make it easy to vacuum around furniture and the swivel head rotates easily around tables, floor lamps, sofas etc,

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Elite Canister Vaccum Gray

A fantastic unit. I tested many vacuums for my wife and this came on the top of the list. The only negative thing about it is the warranty. It is limited to only 3 years (a replacement agreement). There are other less expensive units out there with 6-7 years warrant.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

To late to return

I wish I had never bought this vacuum. The floor head that is attached to the carpet head does not stay locked in. If I can get it to lock, when I pick it up to move it it unlocks. Every time. It will not stay in place. What a piece of ****. I am mad at myself that I let the 30 days go by and now I am stuck with it. My blood pressure goes up every time I use it. Hate this vacuum.

Quality Problems

Telescoping wand doesn't stay locked in position-only had it for a month or so. It is like vacuuming with a snake between you and the floor. It is powerful but is also very heavy and hard to use. I am going to return.

Kenmore Elite...Cleans Well

Received my Elite Canister...and have used it Twice. This is my first Canister Model. It takes getting use to, but overall I'm liking using it over a Upright. It is powerful...and cleans well. The Dirt indicator on this Model...tells you when the dirt is picked up....I clean Longer now...but my Carpet is much cleaner...than it has been. I realize now I've not vacuumed well enough and have left dirt behind. So this feature is Great....I think the attachments might be difficult for a older citizen to attach and take apart...and require some thought and applying. But this would be true with any Vacuum cleaner. Nice light design, easy to roll...and like the Roll up electric cord...no more winding up the cord to store. I did notice that the Main floor brush has already showed some side scratches....from rubbing into furniture and baseboards..the paint and plastic scratches easily. But in a world of plastic..that is what you get. I mail ordered my unit and got it in 3 days....every feature works great. The dirt indicator is a great feature...you know your cleaning better than you have in the past. I have pets...and appreciate the attachments.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
