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 7-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.

I could not select anything lower than a 1, or I would have. The telescoping wand has poorly made cable strip assembly. We paid for one repair. Now the assembly has failed again, along with the cable strip connector and the connector spring. We will now be purchasing a different a different brand vacuum cleaner. Do not purchase this vacuum.

I purchased this too replace a hand me down 1980 Sears Powermate Canister Vacuum Cleaner from my mom. Thank goodness I didn't discard the 1980 Sears Powermate Vacuum...It's still going strong after 34 years but thought I would "upgrade" NOT...HORRIBLE Machine this 116.21714 is. Where is the Sears quality that was in the 60's, 70's, 80's, even 90's? This vacuum quit working after 2 months, yes 2 months! No pets either, just a once or twice a week vacuuming in a 2500 sf home. Mix of hardwood and carpeting, stairs too. The wand won't power the powermate any longer, the rear wheel on the canister keeps falling off, the wand light burned out, canister part of the vacuum gets really hot as well. The attachments are really a joke. I have a 4-piece attachment set with my 1980 canister and love them. These attachments are useless. The mini powermate is the only value add to this machine, it does do the stairs really well. Will it quit working though? Don't know. So, I have a $400.00 vacuum that can only be used to vacuum stairs as the other attachments are useless and the Powermate no longer "powers" up. I can't even use my older powermate on this one because the connections are totally different. I should have gone with the $149 model as I see better reviews for that one. Stay away until they bring back the original canister design and beef up the quality again. I'll stick with my 1980 powermate canister model for now, it's lasted 34 years so hopefully it will continue on another 34 years... Get it together Sears!

I had an older model of this vacuum for close to 10 years, and so when I needed to replace it, I first thought of the newer version of same vacuum. Upon checking Cinsumer Reports, I found the Progressive was given the highest rating. That clenched the deal. I bought the new Progressive, and am very happy that I did. It is easy to use, lightweight, and performs very well.
If I could give this no stars I would! This vacuum is a piece of junk. I had my last Kenmore for 10 years. This one lasted 6 months before the wand no longer worked. It stopped powering the beater bar and the light. Every time I tried to use the extension it started shorting out and then quit working altogether. I took it back to Sears and they had it 3 weeks, but it was covered under warranty. I've now had it 2 1/2 years and the same thing just happened. I loved all the features but $400 is too much to pay for something I used 1-2 times a month for light cleaning. We have no kids and no pets. I will NEVER buy another Kenmore.
First Kenmore product and may be last if I don't get someone to help me. After looking at notes here see other are having same issue, Wand breaks no power to vacum head. OK broken but getting it fixed will put you on malox. Still broken they (SEARS) can't find info on vacum cleaner even though i have serial number and the device and purchase order .......................
I truly hate this vacuum for a variety of reasons. First it's way heavy. Dragging it upstairs is painful. It came with the wrong bags which caused all manor of dirt to get into the cannister & engine. It actually doesn't suck - the crevice tool which I use a lot has major amounts of air escaping along the side of the attachment making it seriously ineffective. I'm a long-time fan of Kenmore products but this one is a huge disappointment and I even checked with Consumer Reports which gave it high marks. Can't imagine why. In fairness the pet attachment works well. Now if I could just get them to use it.
Overall does the job. Better then most other vacuums I tried recently including electrolux. Edge cleaner needs improvement. Suction with attachments needs improvement. Haven't figured out how to get the brush off to attach pet power mate. Previous version was made better. Cloth bags are good.
