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!!!!

I also tried the 21514 model and it had the same problem. When you move the hose around where it attaches to the canister, the vacuum either stops or won't start. This seems to be a design problem in most if not all their canister vacs. We're very disappointed and will have to go elsewhere to buy a vacuum cleaner.
I have had Sears canister vac's for years and have always loved them. The design of this white one stinks. The handle is big and bulky and can't be used to get into tight spaces. The hardwood floor attachment isn't working the best either. I would love to trade it for your older designed vacuums. This one doesn't appear to have the suction the old one has either. I am very disappointed in it this time.
Had my last Kenmore canister vacuum for 7 years. Was pleased overall with its performance so when it wore out Kenmore was my choice again. I am not disappointed. This vacuum meets my needs & the suction is superb!
We needed a bare floor vac. Chose this one after reading good reviews. It does a good job, but has two shortcomings: 1) The handle becomes uncomfortable after a short time; 2)The hose needs to have swivel joints at both ends so that it can remain straight during use.
I am not to enthused about the color but like the vacuum. I have used it on my stairs and it works great with the attachments. The removable deck is easy to remove so you can just use the hose like around the baseboards to get everything clean. My carpet is old but this vacuum actually made it look much better. I like the canister type now that I have tried it and will probably never buy another upright.
I love this vacuum cleaner. The suction on it is great,the only feature I think is not good is the extra pet hair cleaner. If you even slightly put pressure on it the thing stops spinning. But over all this is a great vacuum!

This vacuum has great suction on all floors. I have both carpet and wood floors. Since I have a dog that sheds a lot I needed a great vacuum. It picks up all of the hair on the carpet and on the wood floors it doesn't just blow around it really did a great job picking up the hair their too.
I purchased this canister vac to replace my Hoover upright that died last week after less than two years. I went to a vacuum shop and tried out a couple of vacuums that were out of my price range but the one I liked the best was a canister. I started doing a little research online, reading reviews and decided to check out Kenmore. Several people I know swear by Kenmore canister vacuums and I was surprised to see how reasonably priced they are. Going by reviews, it was between this orange one and the bagless model which was about $100 more. I have owned several bagless uprights and they never last very long so I thought maybe I should go with the bagged version. This is my first canister vacuum. I got this orange Kenmore on sale at Sears for $159, plus I had a $10 off coupon. Can't beat that price! Out of the box, it was super easy to snap together. I cleaned everything in the house with it, trying out all the attachments. I have hardwood and tile with area rugs, and one bedroom of carpet. This vacuum does great on the hard floors with the brush turned off, unlike my old upright which just pushed dirt around so that I had to use the broom and dustpan. My carpet and rugs are super fluffed and clean now, the vacuum goes flat to fit all the way under the beds, I am super impressed so far. I could even reach the ceiling fan with the wand and we have 11 ft ceilings, and I am short! Love it!
This is my second Kenmore. The first still works like a champ - but the hose went and I grabbed this model on a 1 day sale for less than a new hose. This little vac has a lot of power. I have a super-expensive top rated upright, but it just doesn't work as well as this lightweight canister. I grab this one every time!
This vacuum is the best I've ever bought! My carpets are finally getting cleaned without several vacuumings. I have lots of threads, bits of material on the floor and the vacuum gets them up first time.
I was using a very heavy vacuum that had a lot of heat come from it. I purchased this because it was my fav color and the reviews said it was great. Well, they were all right. It is light weight, unlike my old one, it picks up great and is easy to move around as you sweep. At first I thought that I had purchased a "child's toy" because I just couldnt believe how light and easy it is to manage. I am going to get one for my daughter in green.
Love this vaccume.. my old Sears vaccume died after17 yrs. I have a dog, two cats, boy and man, it picks everything up great. Excellent with all the pet hair. The price is great, got it on sale 199 but now on sale again for 179 so wait for this price if possible. Love the orange very cheerfull pretty color, makes it more desirable to clean. Only thing, my old one had a longer hoose and cord but getting used to it. Highly recommend.
Well worth money. Best suction we have ever owned!!! Been married 32 years owned 6 cannisters all kenmore, use them almost daily!!! d Daughters have 2 of the old ones still working! Way more suction than an electrolux!!!
Loved this vacuum cleaner...it did everything it says with a lot of power. Just beware...it is smaller than it looks. I actually ended up taking mine back because I have a large house...ended up buying one of the progressives simply because they are a bit larger and look a little more sturdy than this. My last canister from Sears lasted over 10 years and worked great, only hope I get that many from this one. I would have kept this other model, probably should have as a spare. The price on this one was great...$199. on line and in the store it was on sale for $169. so be sure to check out the store price first. Usually it is cheaper on line, but not this time.
We made a mistake choosing an area rug with a dark brown background for a house with several cats. It was impossible to clean, we just couldn't get all the cat hair up! Lucky for us, the old vacuum died and I chose this one. Fantastic! That rug has never looked so clean with so little effort.
