Product Description

Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum - Superior Cleaning

Cleaning floors and furniture is now a simple process with the Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum. A 2-motor system, retractable cord storage, Stair Grip and variable speed settings make carpet and bare floor cleaning a cinch. This vacuum's true HEPA filter keeps pet dander and dust out of the air so you can breathe easy. From the 8-foot hose that swivels 360 degrees and reaches the highest surfaces to the horsehair dusting brush for fine wooden furniture and floors, this vacuum has the tools to get the job done.

  • The Infrared Dirt Sensor activates a red LED that tells you  where to focus cleaning power, then shines green once it's all clean.
  • Designed to make cleaning-up after pets a cinch, the Pet PowerMate™ attachment lifts hair, dander and more from furniture, rugs and carpeting in seconds.
  • Superbly maneuverable, the Swivel+ Steering System™ lets you easily glide around corners and into difficult places for an easy, fast and thorough clean.
  • The exclusive Stair Grip™ feature keeps the canister body upright and securely in place while the stairs get cleaned, for solid performance and increased safety.
  • Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America approval means this vacuum effectively removes allergens from carpets while limiting the release of dust and dander into the air.
  • 6-in-1 Handle Technology serves-up a power nozzle and floor brush, a large Pet PowerMate™, a smaller pet upholstery tool, a horsehair dust brush and a crevice tool for tight spots.

LOVE THIS VACUUM!
This is my 3rd Kenmore canister in 34 years! I was hesitant to buy another because of the mixed on-line reviews for this. Consumer Reports gave it an excellent rating so I bought it anyway. I can't believe the improvements in the new vacuum (so mine was only 18 years old!). It's lighter, has incredible suction and is well designed so the most used tools are on the handle. I had a little trouble at first with it shutting off, but it turned out I didn't have the hose securely clicked into the vac. I have bad asthma and 5 indoor pets, all hardwoods and used to cough while vacuuming. With the Don't believe the bad reviews.

Wand poorly made. Wiring will go out quickly.
The wand for this model is poorly made. There are dozens of reports here, ******, etc. where the wiring breaks inside the telescoping wand. Sears should recall and fix, or replace these for free. Kenmore brand is not what it used to bel

Good suction, but HUGE, BULKY and hard to use

The suction and "brush" power on this are great - which they better be, given that it's the size and weight of a small dinosaur. I loved this the first time I used it - until my wrist and arm got sore after vacuuming just one room. Unfortunately, adding storage in the canister for all but the powered brush tool means that the body of the canister is giant, it weighs a ton, and it's not easy to manipulate, move around, or even pull on hard wood floors. Stairs? Forget about it without a rest period. I'm going to sell this at my next yard sale and get a new version of my last Riccar.

I would no purchase another one!

I have this vac for 3 1/2 years. The wand/powermate broke within first year or so but I had a 3 yr warranty that paid for at purchase. Good thing! Warranty expired last April and Sears no longer warranties vacs. I wonder why?! Now I have the same issue with the powermate/wand connection. I will never buy another Kenmore vac. Three years of light house duty for a vac to have two major problems...I will look to other brands for a replacement...

Makes Vacuuming Almost Fun

Vacuuming always seemed like such a chore until I purchased this zippy little red one. It's very lightweight, has lots of useful, easy-to-use attachments, great adjustable sucking power. Works terrifically on bare floors and rugs (I no longer have carpet). You can even use it for dusting surfaces as you go. Simply amazing! I have owned it for 5 months and am delighted - which is going some for me considering my past feelings towards vacuuming - which was dread. I'm looking forward to a long and happy relationship with my perky red vacuum cleaner!

Any canister lower than this isn't worth it

I've had all styles of Kenmore canisters over the last 25 years. I have found that the models that are $350 or above are the ones with the features that make life easier and anything less isn't really worth the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GREAT VACUUM CLEANER

I love the power of this machine and the ease of using it. The best part is that I could vacuum under the bed or other furniture. Great vacuum cleaner and great price. I would definitely recommend this product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Absolutely not worth the money

This vacuum is not even two years old and already needed major repair.The part that connects the hose to the canister broke. Unfortunately it is made of plastic and therefore cannot withstand the pull of the hose. Parts of the ring broke off and the new piece cost approximately $68. To replace the part oneself is impossible. I had to take it to a repair shop and pay an additional $30 to have it fixed. Now that is already almost a third of the price I paid for the thing. The mechanics there told me that they see plenty of these vacs with the same problem and replacing the part which should be a piece of cake is actually a pain in the bud. Skillfully designed to make it difficult. I thought by paying more money, I would get a better product. Far from it, what a let down. Don't believe the ratings in Consumer Report or GH - that is what I went by - somebody is paying somebody off. Save your money and don't buy Kenmore.
