  1. What type of vacuum are you interested in. My wife used to go through upright vacuum every year or two. I found the Dyson DC and it has been in my home working without a fault for 6 years. The Dyson line also has a canister model for you to look at. Here is the link, http://www.sears.com/appliances-vacuums-floor-care&Dyson/c-1020018?filter=Brand&viewItems=25&sName=View%20All. Hope this will help you out.

    Has the old vacuum burned-out? Or, has it just lost suction power? There are a few simple things that can be done to dramatically improve your vacuum's performance that may help you with your first vacuum cleaner.

    If the old vac is a canister, then cleaning the air hose is a fantastic way to revitalize the machine.

    Uprights have hose issues too. But, nothing like that long canister vac's hose is likely to have.

    Took me a while, but, I used to use one of those four-jawed, springy automotive pick up tools to dig out compacted carpet fibers and animal fur that had accumulated in a long hose, along with the suction of the vacuum to help clear the loosened fibers/ fur as I was cleaning.

    If you've lost power to a direct drive vacuum's beater brush head, raising the carpet height setting and pressing the RESET button on top of the brush head, with a pen tip, will often bring a dead vacuum to life.

    Good luck.

  2. Hi wrusty! What kind of vacuum do you prefer? A canister or upright? I LOVE my Kenmore Canister Vacuum. This is the first canister vacuum I have owned, and it is really easy to use and reliable.
