Kenmore Intuition Upright vacuum has great features and price

When searching for a new vacuum the one main feature we wanted was the ability to vacuum not only rugs but also bare floors (hardwood floors). At the same time I refuse to pay $500 plus for a vacuum cleaner- it is against my conservative cheapskate upbringing. There a number of vacuums over $500 that fit the bill but when we discovered the Kenmore Intuition upright we were sold on the features and fell in love with the price.

You can go from carpet to bare floor with a finger switch on the handle which disengages the brush. You do have to do a manual adjustment to the height- a foot adjustment would be nice but it is a minor issue that almost all vacuums encounter.

The telescoping hose was another great feature that sold us on this unit. No more fumbling with the hose- trying to hook it into the machine before you can use it- all you do is pull it out of the holder and it is ready to use. 

We feel more comfortable knowing the dirt we suck up is captured in a HEPA bag and not a cup that you have to emply. Doesn't the dust fly up when you empty those bagless units defeating the purpose of a HEPA vac?

Oh, did I mention this unit sucks. My wife almost sucked up a hall rug using it the first time. As much or more sucking power than those expensive vacuums.

DO NOT BUY
I am getting ready to take this into the shop for the second time in 6 months. The suction hose continues to get clogged up. There are too many turns for debris to go through before it finally gets to the bag. BAD DESIGN!!!!!

Sudden Death

All I did was take out the full bag and replace with a new bag. Turned back on and all that works is the light and the rotator. At 15 months, it is now out of warrantee. This vacuum worked very well when it worked. It is kinda heavy. I will amend this review after I take the Vacuum back to Sears for repair :o(

Better Options

Purchased this vacuum 2/13 after my old Kenmore died figured that one was from 2004, get another Kenmore right wrong after a year the hose has ripped and will cost me $69.99 to replace(and for those that do not know you CAN NOT USE THE VACUUM WITHOUT THE HOSE) and $100+ to have a repair shop fix it. Called care so sorry out of warranty really! I have purchased my last vacuum from Kenmore and sears. Stay away from this product.

great vacuum

This vaccum moves easily and it is very quiet. It was a reasonable price and I appreciate that there is still one available that takes bags. This vaccuum also picks up dirt quite well.

Sears Spearfish

We owned a Kenmore commercial vacuum, 30years.old,and the best vacuum ever. We did not think there was a replacement that was as good until we bought the Kenmore intuition. It is the best vacuum ever. Every aspect of the vacuum exceeds are expectations. This is one of the many reasons why I shop at sears.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for the heavy traffic areas

We are using it for the common hallways in a 14 unit apartment building. Lots of power and great pick up power. Works better than the old canister.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great vac - not so great hose or edge cleaning

This baby does a great job on carpets and is indeed excellent on pet hair. The problem is that the accordion hose can trap certain particles like wood splinters and then become plugged with other debris. Fortunately the "change bag" light gives an indication of this but you have to interpret whether the bag is indeed full or the hose is plugged - clearing the hose may require removing it from the machine. The other issue is that the head, while having a nice design, doesn't do that great of a job of picking up stuff at edges. It is often necessary to go after that stuff with the hose and attachments. Not hard, just somewhat inconvenient.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great

I bought this model based on Consumer Reports positive review, and it confirmed CR's assessment. Easy to maneuver, easy to assemble. Haven't changed a bag yet, which is always a difficult proposition, which is why ordinarily I would go for a bagless design.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Can't use on stairs

I bought this a year ago. It does a great job on both carpet and floors. I don't mind it being heavy because it is sturdy and the suction is great. The problem is it has no lower handle to assist you when doing the stairs. The user is forced to lift and maneuver the vacuum using the top of the handle while the bottom flops at the pivot. It there were a lower handle the user could better move the vacuum from stair to stair as well as avoiding the beater head from flopping when you get to the front edge of each stair. If you don't want to do stairs this is a great vacuum. I have looked to see if there were some place I could attach a handle but do not believe there is a study enough area to do that. I'm a male, 57, and go to the gym regularly. Believe me when I say it is difficult to use on stairs.
