Comment:
I have owned this vacuum cleaner for over 3 years and although it does a great job cleaning I am sorry I purchased it.<br />It is too heavy. It is hard to remove the beater bar for cleaning. The catch that holds the vacuum upright has broken and it falls over all the time.<br /><br />i am sure I could have found a more maneuverable, light weight vacuum that cleans as well as this one.<br /><br />Not a good buy.

Comment:
My daughter and I both purchased this machine at the same time from Sears in Goldsboro. My daughter's machine broke, fortunately, just before the one-year warranty was out--her machine could not be repaired and was replaced. My machine started making a noise that sounds like it is ready to quit. The machine is horrible on flooring without carpet as it blows the dust/debris rather than suck it in. Though the bags are easy to replace, the machine puts out a stale smell in the room when I vacuum. There is not anything I like about this machine other than it is an upright and the bags are throw-away.

Comment:
Worked great when it wasn't broken. We bought this a little over a year ago and only replaced perhaps 4 bags in that time period and one filter (which was fairly clean, just felt like it was in long enough) and had all original OEM parts. The brush/roller end bracket failed so I called to replace. No, you need to get the entire brush/roller assembly for half the current retail price + Shipping & Handling.
