Best Vacuum Ever! Recommend this in a heartbeat!!

Love our Kenmore Elite upright. So many things: 1) the cord is plenty long to vacuum at least half of our ranch home; 2) attachments that are more than adequate and are conveniently stored and easy to access; 3) easy to maneuver the canister; 4) easy to convert from the Powermate to the lift off floor brush to the attachments; 4) off/on and suction switches are conveniently located on the handle; 5) wand adjustment is easily adjustable from short to long for underneath beds & ceiling; 6) dust bag a cinch to change out & it's not messy to change! 7) LED lights everywhere. Everything (Powermate, lift-off floor brush, attachment wand) is well lit while vacuuming; 8) we live in the South so there is no carpeting in our home, only throw rugs. The Powermate is great for our throw rugs (and hardwood/porcelain tile). However I favor the lift off floor brush on our hardwood and porcelain tile floors. My husband found this vacuum for me and I must admit I was apprehensive of going back to a canister. Wasn't wild about pulling a vacuum around behind me. I was SO WRONG! Glad he found this for me. So easy to use and does a fantastic job of picking up after us and dogs & cats! I highly recommend this vacuum!

Have always bought Kenmore canister vacs and bought this one as it is pet friendly, but 1 year 9 months old and the motor died! This is one of three vacuums I own so it didn't even get used that much! NOT HAPPY! A vacuum like this should last longer than a year and a half!

Great Performance for a While


We purchased this vacuum because we have family members with Kenmore canister vacuums purchased in the 1990s that still work perfectly. We had great performance with our vacuum for a while, but after a six months the telescoping wand stopped sending power to the power head. Kenmore replaced the wand under warranty. Eight months later, however, the power head stopped receiving consistent power again. The vacuum is no longer under warranty. We are very disappointed in the longevity of this vacuum cleaner considering Kenmore's long history of providing great, reliable products. If you are looking for a reliable vacuum, look elsewhere. This vacuum had great suction and performance for a little over a year, but there are much cheaper vacuums on the market if you are looking for a flimsy vacuum that will not last a long time.

Nice, but...


On the plus side, this machine has great power and suction. Pretty color. Stair feature is nice. Powered floor and furniture units pleasing. Cord sufficiently long.
Negative, do not like the large connection points. Cannot reach under low lying furniture. Most attachments in back of machine, crevice tool stored near handle. I have yet to be able to get it out of its snug holder to use.
I miss the older Kenmore models that I have used for decades, using interchangeable parts as the need arose. Cathedral ceilings were a snap to dust with more sections of wand attached. Being a professional house cleaner, this new machine will mean more work and longer hours.

Happy purchase


Exactly what I needed with a double-coated dog in my household. Attachments are included and hidden in the canister. Lighter than an upright so maneuvering around furniture is easier.

Kenmore Canister Vacuum


We had an old Kenmore, just like this and it worked fantastic, so we purchased a new one. The new one works just as well as the old one, and we can't be happier.

Overall Good Vaccum


Overall it's a good vacuum. Much quieter than the one we had previously. Love that the light is on the wand itself, not the floor attachment. Love that the mini vacuum fits in the tray where we were always looking for where someone put it on the last one. The only couple of minor things with this one is that the floor attachment is much thicker. It doesn't fit under our furniture like the previous one did and when you separate the want from the floor attachment, it's not a quick re-connect. You have to finagle it just right and then you think it's in but it's not
