Didn't last long !
This was purchased as a replacement for a dead vac. It is quite a neat tidy design that does not topple over or turn upside down when towing it around, as many do (Dyson et al)
First comment is that it is nearly impossible to pick it up- there is a handle on top that does not seem to move and traps the knuckles or snaps one's finger nail if you try to use it. I am pretty good with mechanical items but I cannot find how to fold it up.
Second- after the first whizz round the house the brush had a lot of hair ravelled round it and had become wui...
Bought a Electrolux vacuum cleaner many years ago and was brilliant. This latest one I can not bag enough. If you don't clean all three filters just about everytime you use it, it has the sucking power of a straw. Sent it back because power button wouldn't work which was fixed. Don't waste your money buy a cheap one from Kmart it will do same job. It is that pathetic I will never buy an Electrolux product again.
Worked well for 2 weeks, now useless

Seemed good for the first few weeks, then lost most of the suction. Had to pay $60 for new filter , worked okay again for a few weeks, now back to useless. Only a few months old, and not cheap. Expected better. Would not recommend at all.
Questions & Answers
How does upholstery nozzle fit onto vacuum? Tried all obvious possibilities
Took out the front filter to clean it. A VERY lose fitting 'O' ring flopped out. Washed filter and now cannot get it back in with the O ring flopping around in there. Surely it should be a close fit under the rim of the filter? What is the solution?
Afte 18 months' or so of use, the vacuum suddenly started collecting pet fur around the cylindrical mesh top filter instead of in the main cannister. This means that I have to stop several times to prise out the fur from around the filter and that it also doesn't pick up as much as it used to. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone else know how to fix it? It doesn't look like Electrolux monitors this page and their manual is extremely basic. When we asked for a technical manual, we were told this was not an option.
