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 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.

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.

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 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.

purchased 23 sep 2014. cleans hair from 2 cats and cav spaniel exceedingly well on many different pile rugs. it is a bit heavy, but that is inherent to an upright. to move it around, swing the handle left+right as if it was a cart or lawn mower; much easier to maneuver! would be helpful to have a grasp recess in lower front to lift it onto furniture or steps to clean that. good value!
This Vacuum is awesome so far. I almost didn't get it because some of the reviews said that it was too heavy to push and it is heavier than the average vacuum so I probably wouldn't recommend this to someone with a bad back. It cleans my carpet like no other vacuum has and I have lots of pet hair to deal with too!
