NICE!! VERY FAST SHIPPING
First, this vacuum appears to be a great value, given that it has great suction and versatility. However, the power switch lasts about 2 years before it no longer reliably turns the unit on. This would not be a big deal, if I could buy a new switch to install. However, one must buy the entire motor unit from Sears Parts Direct, for $160.00. The whole F-ing vacuum only costs $60! I am now left with a brand new filter and hose attachments that I cannot use. This will be my last craftsman.
Purchased shop vac. sent a pair of shoes returned shoes had to purchase exchange and wait for credit on return recd. replacment turns out it was a returned vac. to sears carton had lables from someone else sesrs said to return it but had to purchase another vac. and wait for credit . carton was a total mess. im done with sears WHY ARE THEY LOSING STORES?
Purchased a year ago as a gift and the motor burned up. There was a time (long ago) Craftsman was synonymous with quality. Those who insisted on quality did not mind paying a premium price. Too bad Craftsman decided to move to chase profits with cheaper components resulting in poor quality.
