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.

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.

Great suction but design flaw

We bought our first vacuum from Sears in 1973 and this is our 5 one since then. Unit as a whole is great. Fantastic suction power, HEPA filter does a great job, and all attachments work great,but the units has a problem. The telescoping wand has a poor locking mechanism that does not stay locked and wiring strip that allows the wand to adjust is to rigid and breaks not allowing power to the beater bar. Being a Kenmore Elite we excepted better quality as all our other Kenmore appliances have been. Fixed wiring problem myself and wand is now locked in one position.

Don't buy

I have had this vacuum for three years now. It was great the first year, I absolutely LOVED it. It sucks really good, easy to switch heads out, easy to change the bag... But with age and use things started to break. I really thought by spending $600 I would get my money's worth (at least to last longer than 3 years!) This is what has broken on it: #1) the re-coil for the cord is shot (it continues to pull the cord in, so when I have it plugged in it pulls the cord off of the wall and into the vacuum-we finally put a clamp on the cord so it would quit sucking in) #2) the head gets stuck in the position as if I were vacuuming under a bed which is SUPER annoying. #3) a piece of plastic broke off near where the wand plugs into the head and so when I just stand the vacuum up it falls over (it no longer stands on its own- I have to lay it down on the floor or lean it against a wall). That is all. It's a gray vacuum...at first. Time will only tell...and I'm telling you, don't buy it.

This canister vacuum works pretty well!

I bought this vacuum mainly because it has a lift off part that is safe to vacuum on hardwood floors. The canister is a little bulky but not too heavy. It is also a little cumbersome with handling the thick hose that is attached. I like the fact that you can attach a crevice tool and a pet hair tool. I also like that you can change the suction control from light to heavy. Overall it is a very versatile vacuum and I would recommend it to others.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not user friendly

vacuum and floor attachments are good but the hose and connection are bulky.Beater bar attachment will not fit under my bed as my old progressive canister would.Cord reel retracts all the time,does not stay out.Had to put a large clip on cord to keep it from retracting.My biggest complaint would be the hose and extention wand are to bulky and difficult to get in small spaces.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Do Not Purchase

Vacuum works great when it's working! I've had to return twice due to the carpet mechanism stopped working. I used the vacuum in my home five days a week 2-3 hours daily. I shouldn't have to return twice within 60 days. This vacuum should be recalled in my opinion.

Loved it!

We originally purchased this canister to clean our new Mohawk Silk Strand carpet. Although it didn't work (the carpet is too high and too thick for any vacuum) we tried it in other rooms. It was quiet and very effective and I loved that the beater bar could be removed to clean tile and hardwood. Unfortunately we had to return it (we already have a fairly new Kenmore upright) but I would recommend it to anyone!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product

We purchased this item as our other 7 year old Kenmore was in for repair. We were very pleased with how easy it was to assemble, basically take it out of the box and use it! It works great and now with the other one repaired we have one for upstairs and one for downstairs. Both have the dirt sensor which works great on carpets. We prefer bagged vacuums to the bagless ones. Would rather not have to breathe in or touch what's coming off the floor by cleaning out the canister. We did purchase the vacuum brand (not Kenmore) that is promoted on the infomercials, but it was so cheaply made and had so many parts that had to be stored separately, we returned it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
