I bought this for my mom, who's a senior citizen and can't use a big heavy vacuum cleaner to clean her house. This one was a great price, nice and light so it's easy for her to pick up when she needs to. It has a carpet attachment, floor brush, small upholstery brush and a crevice tool, all easy to take on and off. It is bagless, and the container for the dust was easy to remove and put back on. All in all, i'd recommend this for light duty cleaning; here's hoping it will last as long as my other Kenmore vacuum, 10 years old and still going strong!
I have bought Kenmore vacuums for years with no problems. i am 58 now and wanted to get a smaller vacuum that was bag less. since i have always had a wonderful experience with Kenmore and my vacuums always lasted at least 15 years, i bought this one. i do house cleaning for a living and have used a variety of vacuums. this one is the worst vacuum i have ever bout or used! it has terrible suction once the floor head is attached. just using the nozzle part it works so so. but who vacuums floors like that? on bare floors it works so so. on any kind of carpet its just useless! i wish i could get my money back but i bought it on ****. the reviews they used on that add were good, i should have researched it more.
Just got it, used it once, very powerful and easy to use.
I purchased this vacuum at Christmas time 2017. I am disappointed in the performance, but I am more disappointed in Kenmore and how it was made.I have had Sears Kenmore vacuums in my home for many years, and the vacuums have always performed wonderfully.
Not this time.
The suction is not good with either vacuum head. The wand keeps falling off of the hose attachment that I have duct taped it to stay on. The previous vacuum I had, it had a button that went in to a hole in the wand to secure it, there is a plugged hole on this wand.
The biggest problem with this vacuum is trying to empty the canister. You need a couple of hands to hold the filter "attached" to the canister open to empty the canister, which is awkward to hold open. The filter is a pleated accordian type paper that has a part to zip across the pleats to get the dirt out, and there is a small brush to brush the pleats.
