Product Description

Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Hardwood & Carpet

The Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum offers a smooth transition from carpet to bare floor and vice versa with an agitator shut-off switch. This vacuum also has Kenmore's Power-Flow feature, which keeps air flowing through a dual chamber even when the bag is full. Ideal for homeowners with allergies, the Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum uses HEPA Media filtration to trap dust, dander and pollen, leaving you with cleaner floors and cleaner air. The super handy performance indicator notifies you if you need to change or check the bag.

  • Designed to make cleaning-up after pets a cinch, the Pet Handi-Mate™ attachment lifts hair, dander and more from furniture, rugs and carpeting in seconds.
  • A super long 14-foot hose lets you reach further, helping cut down on outlet swapping, and giving you the reach you need to get the house cleaned fast.
  • A 30-foot power cord goes a long way, enabling you to cover the length and breadth of most rooms, without having to move the plug into different outlets.
  • The Reach-Out telescoping wand helps you get to places you normally couldn’t reach, cleaning window treatments, ceiling fans and other above-floor surfaces without a step ladder.
  • The True HEPA certified filter can be trusted to remove almost all significant allergens from air flowing through the vacuum, so you can breathe easy.
  • The LED electronic indicator lets you know when the dust bag is full or the hose is clogged, so you can fix it quickly and get back to cleaning.
  • A foot-operated 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.

Almost perfect blend of upright- and canister vac functionality
If you are looking for a competent upright vacuum at a reasonable price, this is definitely a model to consider. In 10 months of use, I have found: Highs: -Cleans carpet well; has 4 height adjustments; agitation effective without being overly harsh -Cloth Bag exceptional at retaining dirt; find very little in chamber or subsequent filters (the foam pre-motor filter and final HEPA). -?Clean Air? design filters debris from air stream prior to fan, much like a canister vac. -Excellent suction at hose, and with 14? of reach including tools, it can be used with legitimate canister functionality. Note, though, that I had to purchase additional tools to round out the tools usage, including a floor nozzle and nicer: dust brush, upholstery brush. Also had a spare extension wand from another vac that comes in handy. -Hose has a clip to keep the force of tugging on the hose near the base of the machine to help prevent it from tipping over while using tools (but the hose will not be fully extended with its use) -Though not the lightest vacuum at 19 pounds, it maneuvers well -Brush roll can be turned off for bare floors and throw rugs, and when using tools, so you don?t inadvertently damage flooring, etc. -Relatively quiet for a vacuum -Long cord length of 30 feet allows you to move far from an outlet Lows: - The optional synthetic cloth bags are pricey - Hose is awkward to remove/replace from holder in some spots, as is the locking mechanism between hose and tools. -The standard complement of onboard tools is lacking in functionality and quality; had to buy additional tools -The extendable wand is flimsy when extended; would be structurally better as two separate wands -The ?full bag? light, while a novelty, just measures reduced air flow. So, it comes on during certain tool usage. I suppose it?s helpful if you pick up lots of fine particles that clog up bag pores, as it would tell you that the effectiveness is reduced even though bag is not full.

The Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum is not a good choice

Do not buy this vacuum cleaner. The brush motor broke after two years and it costs almost as much as the vacuum to replace. When it did work it was very heavy and cumbersome to use. I was very disappointed as I grew up with Kenmore brands but this product does not live up to the reputation.

Vacuum

We like it. It is easy to use and like that it makes lines as you vacuum. It also works well on a wooden floor. The attachments are easy to use but have not yet used the pet attachment.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ordinary

Purchased this due to CR ********. Very disappointed. Did not have enough tool suction to keep the furniture brush rotating. If you apply any pressure at all it will stop. Carpet cleaning was less than expected. After I used it, it went over same area with 8 year old Hoover Wind Tunnel and it picked up more debris. The old Hoover has twice as much tool vacuum as this sweeper and more suction for carpets. Returned it for refund.

just ok

I have had 3 kenmore vacuums before this one and this is the least favorite one. The height doesn't adjust enough for higher more plush carpet. It is not easy to switch from floor to carpet with your foot. You have to bend down and switch it back with your hand. Haven't used the wand yet but it doesn't have a switch to tell it you are using wand. Not impressed with this one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not good with hair

We have only had this unit for less than a year and I have already had to replace the brush (agitator) because the design allows for hair to get tangled in there around the end bearing and then it burns up. The replacement cost of the agitator was $80.00 plus $16.00 for freight since we do not have a parts depot in this town any longer (good move Sears, not!). This is why I threw away the Bissell we had before because of the same inferior design qualities. I never had this problem with our Hoover. If you have girls with long hair in your family (or long hair dogs for that matter) I would highly not recommend you purchase this unit. I am already 50% into the cost of the unit to repair it and I have not even had it a year.
