Worked fine for 4 months and then went kaput!

I got this from the Good Guys and it worked well for just a few months. Like the other reviews mentioned, the suction stopped working and the unit would turn off on its own randomly. Cleaned the filters, roller etc but it made no difference. Dirt would also fall out of it when you turned it off. The light on the swivel head also stopped working. Pretty pathetic - cost over $300 and only lasts 4 months. Surely this is not right? Show details

Wish I had paid attention to the reviews

I bought this vacuum in May this year. I had the previous model which was still going and needed another stick vacuum. Well, as others have said, all good for 6 months then it stopped a couple of times. I wondered if I had touched the button. But now, a month later, it just stops all the time and is not suctioning. Cleaned everything inside it but that is not the problem. When it stops dirt falls out the foot. Have to turn it on 3 times just to vacuum the ensuite. So taking it back to the good guys. Stay tuned.
Do not bother buying this vacuum! Obviously has a manufacturer fault since others have the same problem. Show details

Good compared to the cheap ones

The wife bought this a few months ago... It is a quick clean vacuum for during the week. I would not recommend this to a friend. It shuts off after 15 minutes of work... I went to Electrolux to buy a replacement filter... $79... So, I did an Internet search and I found it for $20 on Amazon... Show details

Do not buy this product

Full changed battery won’t lasting as specified. They say on low power, battery lasts 50 minutes but it doesn’t.
Low power = zero suction power
Brush doesn’t cut stuck hair/fibre on brush as per specifications but it stops picking stuff the floors, especially carpet area
Very bad product from this brand Show details

id give this zero if i could. do not waste your money

it would turn off after a few minutes use right from then start. i had it "repaired" under warranty within a few months with no difference even though the guy said that it now worked. despite cleaning the hose, cannister, filters.. it makes no difference. it does not even have suction. good guys and electrolux were of no assistance what so ever. a total waste of money. it has been sitting there unused for a year since i got it back pulled it out today to do a quick clean and it does not work. Show details

Very pretty but frustrating to upkeep

It often turns off when fully charged. It does not seem very powerful. A somewhat frustrating device with a cute light and nice design. Show details

In constant use!

I did a lot of research on this site before purchasing this vac. I already have the Hoover Cat & Dog but hauling it around daily during the Feb/March shedding months has been a chore. The Q7 is light and easy on the back and perfect for zipping around at any time. The car is much cleaner as well! The headlight and swivell head are both fantastic! I ordered online at Godfrey's and received the vac within 48hrs. Show details

Big Improvement over the old Ergorapido

Got this to replace an old Ergorapido Lithium.
Works very well, battery sufficient to do all carpets and hard floors in the house.
Small power head attachment is great for the car and small jobs.
Only issue is the charging station is a bit flimsy compared to the Ergorapido Show details

Would not recommend this machine. Do not buy it. No battery replacement

Recently bought the machine in Dec 2022. Unfortunately, I was told by the girl at Electrolux centre today that there is no replacement for the battery after the 2 years warranty. I spent $349 on a machine that will only last 2 years. Very expensive to me. Would not recommend this machine to anyone if no battery replacement as it will be useless . Very disappointed. Show details

Didn't last not even the 12mth warranty period

I use it my car mats, the car boot, the plastic surface under the car mats and to clean the tiled area.
Now there's no suction, it also turns off. Just as I was beginning to like it. I was even thinking of buying one for the tiled area in the house lucky I didn't.

My cheap house vaccum cleaner which I bought for 59 dollars has lasted for 5 years and the Electrolux which is supposed to be a good brand cost more and didn't last 12months. Show details

Not fit for purpose

Worked okay for 12 months, but then started cutting out every half a minute, leaves junk everywhere when you switch it off, suction got lower and lower as the months went on and cleaning the canister didn't help that, now it doesn't work at all. Absolute piece of rubbish. Can't believe they want 600 bucks for this turkey now. I'm glad I didn't pay the 500 they wanted at the time Show details

Great Vacuum Cleaner

We have a short haired dog and regularly vacuum the place. Purchased this as a small second vacuum to have around for quick jobs. After seeing how much stuff this picked up from our, what we already thought was clean, carpet, we now use it more than the corded vacuum we have. Love it.

Battery life is around 25-30min, which I find pretty good. Show details

Why does the WQ71 Anima vacuum keep turning off after a minute or so?

Seems to be a common problem with this model.
