Kenmoreclean bag less canister vacuum

I bought this vacuum for my daughter. She has a small apartment with very little storage space. She needed a vacuum that would clean under furniture and would store away when not in use. It has very good suction and is bag less. My mother-in-law also bought for her apartment and loves it. It is a great value for the price. Works great!!!!!

Canister vac

Worst vacuum I have purchased. Not only is it difficult to vacuum with due to the design of the floor tool, debris gets stuck in the chamber just past the intake and causes the vacuum to have little to no suction. I have had to literally take the dust bin apart and manually remove the debris before using it. The floor brush does not have any wheels so it doesn't go over a rug with out a lot of manuvering. Don't like this one at all.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.



Retractable Cord broke the first time I used it. Now I have a cord laying all over the place. The design of the vacuum is horrible. It clogs easily with dust and hair. Kenmore does not stand behind this product nor did Kmart. I used it 3 times and ended up throwing it away.

CAUTION!! No Replacement Filters Available Anywhere!!


I don't know how this vacuum works. I bought it new, but two filters were missing!! So I can't even use it. THERE ARE NO FILTERS AVAILABLE FOR THIS MODEL. Even SearsParts could not find the part number. It is such an outdated model that there are NO FILTERS - ANYWHERE! Shame on K-Mart for selling this! Please choose another model!

horrible vacuum


lets start out. when i bought it and took it out of the box. it was already used. second this vacuum does not have a roller base. so it will not roll on carpet. you will end up breaking the the handle just to vacuum. very disappointed in this product. do not buy.

I will NEVER buy anything from Kmart again, no wonder your stores are in such bad shape in the US, I bought this as a gift for my mom, she was so excited to finally have her compact vacuum, she called to let me know she got it and five minutes later called again to let me know that the vacuum has been used, that there were no attachments, that the cord has electrical tape around it, and that she even got dust out of the canister, I felt so embarrassed! I will NEVER recommend your stores to anyone.
