Great Unit for the price
What a powerful Unit it is, great suction. The only critical points I would make would be: The Wand needs to have an extension ability of about 10-15 cm, for taller users; and the power cord is way too short. The adjustable head brush for polished wooden floors is great. Good waste storage. No tipping issues. For the cheap price - good value!

I am so disappointed in this product. It worked well with first use but not for the second time onwards. The suction is very minimal. It has the same suction of our vacuum of 10 years that we were replacing (Piranha from Big W)! The prongs keep loosening out of the connector lead every 30 seconds. The red dust sticker on the head of the vacuum peeled off with second use. The motor has seemed to have burnt out as it no longer torpedoes in the cylinder. We have had it for 1 month and used it 4-6 times! I had to get my old vacuum old to finish the job and it honestly did a better job even though it is on its way out. If I could give it zero stars I would.

Kmart 2400W Bagless - Not worth the $
Had this vacuum literally 3 days and that is how long it lasted.....motor burnout! Was only using to vacuum carpets and obviously it was too hard work for it. Extremely disappointed as I had people recommend this vacuum cleaner to me. Guess I won't be purchasing another 2400w from Kmart.

This thing works like a charm - Be sure to check the inside barrel as sometimes things can get stuck in there.
[This a complete edit of my original 1-star Review] I would've given it five stars but the design flaw still means you have to be careful about things getting stuck in the inside barrel. However, for $100 from Kmart, just wow!
But the honeymoon didn't last. Within 1-month, the vacuum randomly stopped exerting the level of suction it used to. I cleaned the thing from top to bottom but still no cigar. I was really frustrated and gave a 1-star review.
That's until my inner Engineer kicked in and I decided to take a closer look. I had cleaned ev...erything, but I forgot to take a look at the inner barrel. And there it was - a stupid sock had got stuck in there. So this thing is too powerful for its own good. One of my kids might have 'accidentally' picked up a sock while they were vacuuming. However, it was near impossible to get it out. Once done, wow - the thing worked like brand new. 4-Stars for absolute performance but 1-star retracted due to the difficulty in cleaning that inner barrel. But for day to day cleaning, its really easy to do.

Junk anko bagless vacuum
These new generation bagless vacuum compared to their predecessors of the same designs like the piranha models are totally junk. Internal design was made complicated for no reason doesn't even help the hepa function. I cant even imagine how they designed the internal elements to work with the hepa. From the way I see the perspective of it you can in fact literally take out half of the elements inside and still function better to suck without sacrificing the hepa filtering. As an engineer myself this was poorly designed. And the worse thing is you'd be forced to clean it out everytime a hair gets stucked. Wow this is so poorly designed.

Not even worth the cheap price.
I have bitten the dust literally with this machine because on top of the other problems I have had with it, which I'll explain below, now even the HEPA filter won't stay in place. Reason I bought it was for the HEPA filter being an asthmatic and allergic to house dust.
Originally I thought a major loss of suction was the filters. After cleaning, drying, and replacing, still no suction. The seal around the black filter fell out and was too short. I bought replacement filters. Still no suction. Unscrewed the whole barrel assembly and fou...nd that hair and other debris had gotten stuck around the very central cone of the unit causing the blockage of air. Worked great after clearing that and putting it all back together again, for all of about 20 minutes till the HEPA filter blew out. Have tried to stop the catch from opening with rubber wedges, but the filter itself is still dislodging and letting the fine dust into the air. I haven't even used it that much due to frustrations around the lack of function and waiting time looking for unnecessary replacement filters and their postage. Don't think I'll be buying appliances from Kmart again. I will post receipt details and date puchased when I find the receipt to return it.

You get what you pay for
Purchased about 12 mths ago and when it came out of the box it worked great but now, eh, not so much. If $$ is a major consideration then its a good purchase but if you have a large house, pets and active children I'd suggest invest a little more into a model that would be more sturdier, which is what I'm now researching.

Anko 2400w Vacuum Cleaner
This is a powerful vacuum cleaner. It does a great job and much better then my Electrolux which was a lot more expensive.
It is amazing on carpet and easy on tiles or floor boards.
Easy to empty and very nice looking.

Easy to use.
Mine mysteriously stopped sucking just after a year, despite the motor still working and me not being able to find any blockage anywhere, despite taking it apart entirely. A mystery. I suppose you get what you pay for...

I am pretty disappointed with this vac constantly clogs, I was planning on returning it but because of quarantine I’m stuck with it. It does have powerful suction but having pets , it needs emptying constantly .

Can’t live without it.
I’ve been vacuuming my very small kitchen that is a type of rubber, also carpet. It works so well and transitions smoothly from the two... for the price I payed I am so impressed and hope to get a long life out of it. Kmart, you’ve done it again!

Problem solved !!!
It's all to do with the dust bin!!! Mine too worked great for a couple of months and then lost suction. After trying everything (cleaning filters, looking through the tube), I bought myself a robot vacuum. However, I can't clean the car with it and as it was getting dirtier and dirtier, I decided to try the other one. Again it had little suction, even without the head and ?diverter. Even though I knew the bin wasn't full, I decided to empty it. By sheer chance, I happened to turn it and saw that the round hole (that fits to the round hole...on the actual cleaner) was clogged with recycled paper kitty litter. So instead of emptying it via the usual method, I began to shake it so that the debris was coming out of the small round hole. Then as I turned it to look into the hole, more debris was coming out from under the semi-opaque plastic part (looks a bit like a hair dryer). There are two small slots at the bottom of this component and as I firmly hit the side of the clear plastic bin, more and more stuff (fluff, hair, dirt) came out into the bin. I still intermittently turned it around so that the debris could also escape via the round hole. I also used a metal skewer (about 6" long) to poke in the round hole and also to pull the stuff from the slots under the "hair dryer". I extracted a large amount. I did this once for about 10 minutes and then decided to try it out. Yes, the suction was back! But I still went back and extracted more stuff until I could no longer see anything through the round hole or through the plastic base where the slots are. All up, it took me about 20 minutes. Word of warning; do this outside! I'm surprised that if the maker/Kmart has read these reviews, no-one has looked into it. I'm by no means technical and this is a very easy fix. I'm thinking that maybe they need to makes the slots bigger so that dirt can get into the bin where it's meant to be. Hope this helps someone!
Fast and efficient
Purchased this vacuum from Kmart and was so surprised with how well it works. Easily cleans to whole house, able to move around whole house with its turning wheels, really saves my back! Highly recommend

Good quality-price & Lost suction issue easily fixed!
When I bought this vacuum cleaner I thought it was great! Then over a few months it started losing suction power. After reading several webs for a fix, most sites mentiones a plug in the pipe or tubing as one of posible causes. So I took the tube and pipe out and with help of a clothes hanger screened it.
There was a big plug of hair and dust on the pipe, next to the joint with the dust collector. I could not disassemble the dust collector, so I took the 3 screws of the dust collector out and cleaned inserted the hanger wite from the top of the pipe. After a few times of inserting and pulling the plug was out and it is now vacuuming as brand new!
Everyone with lost suction issues, please try this before you throw it to the bin!

Yes i know I only paid $100 for this product but just cheap and nasty, first few vacuums sucked great, cleaned the filters out ect.... but then the filters kept coming off and when Id turn vacuum on again I would lose suction.
Crappy product i now have no vacuum till I can afford a decent one

For a little under $100, you too can enjoy great suction from Kmart. Five styles of head giving perfect suction. Yes, this 5 rounds of head with top suction cleans up all your mess.

Nice machine for the low price
We just bought a townhouses and had to get a few things fixed, so instead of using our Dyson V10 we bought this cheep unit from KMart.
Pulled it out of the box read the user manual assembled the unit.
The suction was unbelievable to start of with, but soon I was loosing suction.
I checked the filters and cleaned them, which is quite easy.
And the suction returned so I would recommend regular cleaning of the filters.
I found when pulling the unit along it sometimes stood up on its back, this wasn't a major problem.
The biggest problem I found wa...

Questions & Answers
Not familiar with dust interceptor can you let me know what to do with it or forward a link to user manual please
Manual is on this page
the roller on the head has stopped spinning i pulled it apart and now it won t go i think ive put it back togther wrong
Try pulling it apart again and fitting the parts back in. It can be as simple as a plastic holder put back in the wrong way. Also while its apart just check there is nothing stopping the belt from rotating. If this doesn't work, it can be easy to buy another head or one of a different model and an adjuster, but for this machine I wouldn't bother wasting the money.
