Junk

viewvac, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • Summary: Sorry to say it is a piece of junk. Worked pretty good 5 or 6 times then brush quit rotating. I called Eureka and was told to take it to a service center where it would cost more to repair than buying a new one. PLEASE NOTE...It does not have a belt that can be replaced.

Broke after 4-5 uses

Rebecca J. Kahl, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this and thought it worked great until it, like other reviewers said, went out in a puff of black and very stinky smoke. I don't recommend this product. Overheats and dies pretty quickly...

Powerfull cleaner during its relatively short live

Leenaud, Amazon
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Used it only to clean the stairway. Maybe 10 minutes once a week. Then the little belt that drives the rotating brushes came off. I opened it up and put it back on. (Very hard to get to and put back together again) It came off again twice after that and now it is in vacuum heaven.

Overheated the fist time I used it

Lillygirl, Kohls.de
11 December 2010
  • Summary: Not impressed. I don't know if I got one that had issues or if this vac is not for me. I needed a hand held vac for my stairs and couch. I only have 15 stairs and halfway up it stopped working because it overheated.

Not enough suction or power

Jane M. Dudgeon, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this hand held vacuum cleaner for my husband for Christmas. He wanted a vacuum with good suction and power to clean up kitty litter. We had previously used a cordless hand held cleaner, but after about 5 minutes, it just conked out.

Most frustrating handheld

Bishop Black, Amazon
15 March 2009
  • Summary: I'll start with the good news: this vacuum does pick up dog hair from sofas because of the brush feature. It works pretty well in that regard. But there are so many other poor features. (1) the hose suction is very, very weak (even from day 1 and there is no question that the hose is unclogged.

Underpowered and heavy.

Alex "Alex", Amazon

  • Summary: This vacuum is useless. Underpowered and heavy. Suction is terrible. I don't know how it got these raving reviews. I wish I spent a few bucks more for something better.
