Product Description

Kenmore – trusted in the homes of more than 100 million Americans.

The Kenmore 31140 upright vacuum delivers ultra-powerful cleaning on carpets and bare floors. The powerful 2-motor system includes a motor inside the body dedicated to suction and a second smaller motor to power the agitator brush. This system delivers a deep, efficient clean on every floor surface including deep carpets.

The Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner includes a powerful Pet Handi-Mate® design for cleaning up pet hair from floors, stairs and furniture. And with its Power Flow technology, this no-hassle vaccum’s double-wall design keeps air flowing to maintain suction, power and performance. Plus, it comes with flawless floor transitions – a bare floor switch on the handle shuts off the agitator while maintaining full suction on hard surfaces.

  • The Kenmore upright vacuum’s Pet Handi-Mate® design picks up even the most stubborn pet hair from furniture, stairs and other surfaces
  • Electronic performance indicator lets you know when a clog or full bag is reducing suction
  • 2-motor system for deep, efficient cleaning on every floor surface
  • Double-wall design with Power Flow technology keeps air flowing to maintain suction, power and performance
  • Attachments include a crevice tool, combination upholstery tool and dust brush and Pet Handi-Mate® for pet hair cleanup
  • Aluminum telescoping wand for extended-reach cleaning.
  • Convenient, on/off switch on handle for easy operation

Kenmore Intuition Upright Vacuum
This vacuum is great. The only complaint I have is that it is quite heavy and pushing it around is tiring.

What's with the attachment hose?
I have had this vacuum for several months now. I reviewed it on another site and originally gave it a 4 Star rating, but now am reducing it to a 2 primarily due to problems with the attachment hose. There are positives with the vacuum--I think it cleans the carpet well. In spite of what some people have said, I find that it is not hard to push. The bag is easy to replace. The report in Consumers stated that they found the vacuum to be noisy, but it is much quieter than my old vacuum. It it easy to switch from the "Carpet" to the "Floor" setting since it is done on the On/Off switch. The main problem is the attachment hose. It is extremely stiff and refuses to expand. I thought it would loosen up after using it for a while, but it has not. This makes using the attachments extremely difficult. If i am trying to vacuum upholstery, the vacuum falls over as soon as the hose needs to expand. If I am trying to vacuum the ceiling, it falls over (if I can even reach it). If I am using the attachment to vacuum the stairs, it is very difficult. I sometimes try to hold the hose near where it is attached to the vacuum so it will not fall over and the hose will expand some. However, that makes it very awkward to use. A less irritating feature is the handle to lift the vacuum. It is in the back rather than the front. This makes it difficult to use when vacuuming (my old one had one in the front, which was much easier to use). Then, it is hard to use when putting away because the cord wraps around this. This makes it hard to get a firm grip on the lift handle because the cord leaves little room to put your fingers. If I had known that the hose would not loosen up, I would have returned the vacuum immediately despite liking other features of the vacuum. Having to constantly fight and struggle with the attachment hose makes vacuuming even more than a chore than it should be. I really wish the designers/engineers would try using these products before they put them in mass production.

Great vacuum and value

I bought this for my mother who was replacing her Oreck vacuum. This was much cheaper (bought on sale). It has heap filter bag, At first may seem a little heavy but does amazing job. Carpets never looked so good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Pet Hair Suction Ever!!!

This is the best vacuum that I have ever owned- and I have owned many! I was about to buy a Shark vacuum, but then on a snow day, I saw this Kenmore vacuum featured on "Good Morning, America" and I thought that I would research it. All of the reviews were very positive, except for mentioning that it is a heavy vacuum. Well I am a healthy woman in my forties with a teenage sons, so heavy was not an issue for us. Besides, the weight of it gives me a sense of a sturdy product, as well. We are also quite pleased with how well it picks up cat hair on the carpets, rugs and furniture.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The sweeper was rated very highly which was a good selling feature. It works very good and lives up to its rating. The salesman was extremely nice and efficient and I am very satisfied with the service and the product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent vacuum for the price

Pro's: Price, suction Con's: Weight, hose length We've purchased a sears upright vacuum before. Expect to get about 5 years or so out of it before things start breaking. Overall build quality is good. One point, due to the weight, dropping the vacuum caused the handle stop to break. A couple of relatively cheap parts to replace. Like the HEPA bag and relatively easy to maneuver around the floors.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Happy Camper

I live in an apartment and had been getting compact vacuums. However, they amount of time it took to get the job done was exhausting. I purchased this vacuum because I prefer vacuum bags to the annoying filter vacuums. I have a cat who sheds a lot and the filters did not work for me - they constantly got clogged. This vacuum sucks up great with easy to use options for different surfaces and best of all it takes me less time to get the job done!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

WAY TOO HEAVY

The vacuum is nice looking and has decent suction. However, I am replacing a 30 year old vacuum that has been amazing over its lifetime and was lightweight. This vacuum is difficult to push over the carpet when using the appropriate setting. When I set it to a higher setting, it doesn't seem to have as great of a suction. I do like that it only takes a quick switch adjustment to go from the carpet setting to a floor setting. The vacuum works great on floors, as no debris on the floor gets spit away to another part of the floor. This is a major plus!! I am still debating if I will keep it or not. It seems like too much of a workout and I am no longer a spring chicken like I was when I bought my previous vacuum. The jury is still out. I bought this based on a Consumers Reports rating, but am not so sure it is the best choice for me. I believe I need something lighter weight.

Does what it's supposed to do!

After reading a consumer reports article on vacuum cleaners and visiting several retailers, I decided on the this Kenmore product since it has features and a high rating in the report. Other than being slightly heavy, it does do the job that I bought it for.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great product, Fast delivery

Product is great, Best vacuum we have owned. Suction is unbelievable Would be nice to have an auto wind cord. An extra bag would be even better, so we would know when to buy one and not need a separate trip.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
