      great unless you have allergies.
      I love the following features: (1) lightweight - I couldn't believe I was pushing a vacuum; (2) great suction. My daughters and I did a test comparison between this and a different brand upright model. We crushed 2 piles of fishy crackers (10 in each pile) and ground them in to the carpet. The kenmore did just as well as my other upright vacuume, but was quieter and lighter. (3) easy to move around; (4)love the retractable cord feature (so do the kids). Disadvantages: The only disadvantage is that there is a strong exhaust of air that comes out of the canister and shoots up into the air. For my asthmatic, allergy endowed family, this resulted in sneezes and headaches. I'm going to get a filter cloth from one of the allergy companies to lay over the exhaust holes, and hope this fixes the problem. If it does not, I'll have to get a different vacuume.

      Motor went out and Warranty is Useless

      I bought this vacuum about 3 months ago.  Using it the other night the motor started slowing and died.  I took it to the repair center and they said it wasn't covered under warranty.  I thought a one year warranty was just that......one year.  Their CSR was very rude and offensive and they gave an excuse the filter was clogged, but the owners manual says it only needs to be replaced every 6 months.  I wasted my money and I don't recommend this or any other Kenmore vacuum to anyone who wants a quality product.  DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!!!

      Junk! Bags constantly break

      Don't waste your money on this vacuum! The bags constantly break,sending dust threw out my freshly cleaned house! Sears know about this problem and refuses to do anything about it. The bags are way to big for the vacuum. They made the bag compartment smaller and didn't make a new bag to fit. Not only that but it keeps tipping over. I've had about 10 of the Kenmore canister vacs {over 20 years} and this is the absolute WORST!!!

      Canister Vacuum

      Light weight and Flexible. Has all the tools we need to clean carpets, floors, stairs, furniture and blinds. Hepa filter keeps us from inhaling dust that is associated with other vacuums.

      works well

      I bought this vacuum as a replacement for a bagless we use on our second floor bedrooms. It works much better than the bagless and we love the better bar feature. It was on sale and a great value for the price.

      cheap plastic

      I like kenmores but the plastic on this one is cheap> I do a lot of vacuuming and the wheels on the powerhead wore threw the holders and the wheels fell off. If you have a lot of carpet and do a lot of vacuuming I would up grade. Does have good power suction

      Bags don't fit

      Strangest thing...bags made flor this model don't fit! I was vacuuming up powdered detergent. After a few minutes I turned around and most of what I vacuumed was EVERYWHERE. The filter was not clogged, not even close. I did what I could, shifted bag and continued. This time, the poor fitting bag sprung a leak, well you can imagine the rest. Cleaning is not the most enjoyable task, but when your major cleaning tool makes everything a. Thick, white mess , what to do??? A maid?

      Cleans well, light, easy to move around. Uses same bags as other Sears vacuums. Has older less bulky handle system. Color is really bright - not a plus or minus in my book.

      Great Vacuum

      This is the best vacuum for the money ! Hepa filter allergen bag great suction and light weight . Secondary filter can clog if bag pulls away from the hose hole it slides into, but you will notice it making a different sound like a muffled sound.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Poor Vacuum Cleaner

      I have had two of these same vacuums. The first one was shortening out from the beater bar to the wand where it connects. it was two years old...............the second one I bought on January 23, 2014 - now starting in September it started shorting out also. From the beater bar to the wand where it connects..........it melts the plug in on the wand. I took it back to Sears and they told me they couldn't do anything about it as it was a electrical problem. I ended up buying a different on there the day I took it in. I have a warranty on it - I'm out the $199.99 I paid for it and it only lasted 8 months. What can you do for me as I already bought a different on........This vacuum that I'm having trouble with seems to be a lemon just as the first one. Somehow something is not working right to make the right connection. In fact I bought a new wand for it and it melted the plug in on that one also. Very dangerous thing to have in the house.

      Works as it should for a price that can't be beat! The only issue that we've had is tearing the bags at the cardboard neck when replacing. Be extra gentle and you should be ok. Thanks

      Garbage

      This vacuum is a waste of time and money. Had it for a couple months (bought the 5 year plan with it) and the motor stops working. They fix it by changing out the filters and bag (which the bag and one visible filter wasn't even bad) and charged me for it claiming that it is not under warranty. 2-3 months later did the same thing. I guess if you like to get charged $20 and have no vacuum for 2 weeks at a time just for them to tell you to change some filters and a bag that wasn't even a quarter full than be my guest. Sounds like to me they have no idea what is going on and want to waste more time. My advice is to buy something better and go elsewhere. The warranties are garbage anyways.

      Love it!

      Glad I have returned to the canister after years of using an upright. It's quiet, the beater bar profile is low so I can vacuum under furniture, and it does not kick up dust while being used. Another feature that it helpful to me; it is light weight making it easy to move from room to room and easy to lift. What gives it however the 5 stars is the ease at which I can release the extension bar with my foot, to reach crevices and corners.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      I hate to vacuum but this unit makes it almost pleasant! My sister-in-law recommended this vacuum and since she'd rather clean than eat when she's hungry, I figured it MUST be a good one. I have not been disappointed. It's easy to maneuver, has a great power head, plus the attachments make cleaning easy. I also love that it easily detaches from the power head for cleaning corners or other hard to reach places. Cleaned my window valances like a breeze too! Highly recommend for the money! My only complaint is that it is ORANGE...
