Aftermarket filters are problematic

Comment:
This vacuum worked great in the beginning, then lost some suction. I realized it was the filters, so I cleaned the top pre-filter, and later bought an after-market HEPA on Amazon. These are surprisingly hard to find at vaccum stores, and even Hoover does not stock them! So, after buying the aftermarket HEPA, it worked for about 9 months, then the filter element broke in half- seriously! It also falls out, the retaining device doesn't work well. So I cannot recommend even though I like the vacuum overall. The HEPA is a crucial part, and a cheap replacement ruins this vacuum.

Comment:
Despite cleaning filters the vacuum gradually started to cut off. Realized this was due to motor overheating. Wait an hour, start using again. After having this vacuum for a year we can get 30 minutes of light cleaning out of it before it needs to take a nap and rest up for another exhaustive 30 minute motor run.<br />Check out other sites for this same issue, I should have. I really question CRs ratings. Perhaps CR you should have some robustness and ruggedness built into your studies?

Comment:
First time commenting and not a good one. Bare floor rating is misleading - very disappointed and sending back. Missed the user comments on this topic and took CR ratings at face value - how can it be rated so high for hard wood cleaning when even instruction manual states bristles will damage the wood finish but with this model, there is NO way to turn them off EVEN if using the attachment? Should have been half black circle in my opinion.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
