Product Description

Kenmore Intuition Upright Vacuum - Intuitive

Low-maintenance and easy to use, this beltless Kenmore Intuition upright vacuum cleaner features a Power-Flow dual-chamber bag system that provides sustained power to clean, even as the bag fills with dirt, and the powerful 3D Inducer Motor gives you maximum performance. The reach-out wand and on-board tools allow this Kenmore upright vacuum to clean much more than floors. The Pet Handi Mate attachment is ideal for cleaning pet hair from furniture, and the true HEPA filtration system captures dust and dander for cleaner indoor air. Get a deeper clean with this Kenmore upright vacuum.

  • The 3D Inducer Motor™ combines the power of three motors to deliver powerful suction, while operating without a belt, it cuts down on maintenance and repairs.
  • The Direct Drive™ system operates without a belt to increase energy transfer and cut down on repairs, giving you the power you need with fewer interruptions.
  • To keep you focused on cleaning hard-to-see dirt, the Infrared Dirt Sensor activates a red LED that tells you where to focus cleaning power, then shines green once it's all clean.
  • Easy to control with one hand, the motorized Pet HandiMate™ hose and wand attachment makes getting pet fur and dander off furniture and out of your car, a breeze.
  • The Direct Drive™ system operates without a belt to increase energy transfer and cut down on repairs, giving you the power you need with fewer interruptions.
  • Ideal for allergy sufferers, the HEPA certified filter captures maximum debris, trapping dust, dander, pollen and other allergens so exhaust air is clean and you can breathe easy.
  • Miltiple height adjustment positions the cleaning head for optimum airflow and powerful cleaning on bare floors, berbers, high pile carpets and even shag.
  • A handle-embedded brush on/off switch gives you the power you need to move the vacuum from a carpeted surface to a bare floor, so you get the performance you need, on the fly.

Kenmore Intuition 31200
Pros: - Excellent suction. - Foot activated height adjustment (no more bending down). - Quiet - Long hose reach - Dirt sensor let's you know how much dirt you're picking up - Easy to push (we have low-pile carpeting) - feels self propelled - Long cord (35 ft) Cons: - Heavy (21 pounds) - Can be harder to push on higher pile carpeting Overall, I think this is an excellent vacuum. This vacuum replaced an aging Oreck XL and it outperforms the Oreck by leaps and bounds. Even though the Intuition is heavy, an average person should have no problem maneuvering it around the house. The vacuum seems durable and will last for years. P.S. We got the Intuition online Thanksgiving night for $249.99 and picked it up in store Black Friday.

Frequent Clogs

I purchased this item recently and it's been in the shop more than in my house with clogs I couldn't get to and check bag light coming on.  The technician just called me today and said it is because of the U design, the she found a polly pocket shoe, popcorn kernals and food in there and that vacuum is only meant to pick up dust.  I had a previous Kenmore vacuum for 5 years that was a master at everything I needed it to do.  I'm very disappointed with this one.  With a family of 7 and a requirement of using the vacuum every other day, this for sure didn't meet our needs.  I told the sales rep the one I was replacing and how frequently it was used, I wish he hadn't just pointed me to the newest model because the tech explained the new model was different with that U design.  The technician recommended vacuuming with a shop vac, then using the vacuum to get all the fine dust left.  Just what I need as a mother of 5, to have to vacuum twice as much!  I hope I am still within the window to return it and that it gets back from the shop in time!

Motor failed

Purchased Jan 28 2013 motor died April 2014. Barely used this machine and it is so disappointing. Once upon a time Sears would have stood behind this Kenmore product.

*Amazing*

I used to clean a house for a close friend and his wife whom is ill. They had a Kenmore direct drive vacuum cleaner not this model but another. And I loved vacuuming with it. Well I broke down and bought this model as it was on sale (clearance) I am blown away at the power this possesses (sp) I just vacuumed my entire apartment and I am so disgusted at how much dirt there was. I vacuum all the time. my previous vacuum was a cheap $46.00 bissell from *******. NEVER again will I own ANY Bissell products! I am sold! by Kenmore!

Love it!

I got a great deal on a used one of these a while ago - wasn't sure I'd like it as it had been years since I used an upright - wasn't sure I wanted to go back from using a canister. I was *really close* to pulling the trigger on an expensive 'premium' vacuum from a vacuum store. Like a lot of other reviews, the unit is a bit heavy and can take a bit of effort on deeper pile carpet. But I got used to it pretty quickly. So much faster for my upstairs (all carpets) - long cord - it is freeing to not have to change it now :) The suction is amazing. That is what sold me - as good if not better than a really expensive German brand I looked at. Even as the bag has filled up, it still has great suction. I love that it uses bags, and nice hepa bags too. They are quite big and seem to really fill up. My old canister was pretty useless once the bags (hepa cloth ones too) got about 1/3 full. I think they pulled back against the motor opening. In this Intuition upright, it doesn't happen - the dual chamber thingy isn't a gimmick - you can really feel the bag and see that the dirt goes all the way up and along the extra vents. One or two things I'd change? Include an extension to the hose like the ones 12 years ago did. Also, make it quieter!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best one i ever bought

So much better then any other vacuum i have ever bought. blown away by the suction. This is my first kenmore vacuum would have never thought they where built like this. I had a dyson 600.00 paid for that this out does that one. this one so much easier just change the bag. no more having dust fly all over and spray out filters. would tell anyone to buy this hands down

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Does It Again!

Kenmore never ceases to amaze me when it comes to vacuums. They've been around for quiet some time, and they know what they're doing. This vacuum is one of the best vacuums I have ever owned! Aesthetically, it's beautiful. It has that classic Kenmore look that sets their vacuums apart from most cleaners. With modern features (LED headlight, dirt sensor) and a very smooth color, vacuuming doesn't seem like a typical chore. I've never been a fan of bagless vacuums. They're unhealthy and have more up-keep. With a nice-sized HEPA and two filters my air has never been cleaner. The suction on this vacuum is great. It picks up everything in one pass. It's a beast! Although it is heavier than a lot of vacuums out there today, it's still light enough to maneuver with the appropriate pile setting. It does great on hard floors due to the brush roll on/off option. My only "complaint" I had about this vacuum was it didn't come with a floor brush, but there is one that can be can be found on Sears.com for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this vacuum. You won't be disappointed!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Intuition Upright Vacuum

The suction on this vacuum is awesome! I like how you can change from vacuuming carpet to bare floors with just one touch. The length of the attachment hose makes it very easy to use and get into the corners with ease. If there is a negative on this vacuum it is a little heavy to push.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

"Most Powerful" They aren't exagerating

Not much to say about this because it is just what you need. It is the most powerful vacuum I've ever used, not over loaded with fancy attachments that fall off or get in your way. It gives you what you need and that's a very powerful vacuum with the standard accessories you need and that's it. I only gave it four stars though because power can be too much sometimes when using the hose attachments. Plus the hose attachment agitator brush is driven by air flow and no matter who makes it those are just a joke and a poor substitute for a true powered hand held tool.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Intuition Upright

We purchased this item for commercial use. The wide base is perfect for cleaning our commercial carpet. The unit is self propelled and makes cleaning our large floor space quick and easy. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
