Summary: After 40 years of cleaning, I thought I had seen the best and worst of vacuums. For what is charged, this is the worst vacuum I have ever seen! If this were a new car purchase, I would have no problem returning it under the Florida "Lemon Law". Wheels fall of, the height adjustment doesn't work, the front panel has to be held on with a bungee cord, the power is poor, etc. etc. How could any legitimate company put out something like this, let alone call it a "Electrolux"?
Summary: This vacuum looks nice, the only nice thing I can say about it. It weighs 30 lbs. Pretty heavy for taking it up and down stairs and no easy way to carry it. The bags don't hold very much. The bags have to be changed out every couple a weeks. The height adjustment light went out right after I got it,so you have to guess where the brushes are. Too expensive a vacuum for what you get.
Summary: I bought this vacuum because of it's name but, sadly, this Electrolux is a hugh disappointment. The electronic height adjuster is stuck on the high settings (after only 6 month) so I can not vacuum my carpets. The manufacturer replaced it twice and after the third break would not help me. I tried to repair it on my own but they were no longer making the parts that were needed. The vacuum was not even 4 years old.
Summary: i agree with these people that have written about this waste of money. Hardly used except as a vacuum for upholstery. Wheels have broken twice. Monitor lights dont work. Very very upset that this machine cost me 400 dollars to buy and another 150 to repair at different times.
Summary: I was very excited to receive my new vacuum. I shopped around for this one and found Walmart.com had the best price. Upon receipt of the vacuum and right out of the box it was broken...some prong that prevented the vacuum from sucking anything up was broke. It did turn on and it is very quiet and for the most part light weight. Has some nice features too. But we had to return it.
Summary: I am so happy with my new vacuum! This is well worth the $$ spent, it seemed like my old Dirt Devil didn't pick up anything compared to this. The attachments are on the hose so they are easily accessible. The vacuum is light and easy to carry. Love It!
Summary: We had two upright vacuums were heavy, cumbersome, and not particularly effective. We decided to switch to a canister vac, and did a lot of research before buying this model. This Electrolux is powerful and easy to use. The attachments create a lot of flexiblity for various uses; we have had no problem picking up the hair on our hardwood floors from our two laborador retrievers or touching up upholstery. The cord also retracts very easily.
