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.
Purchased in August 2020 at Kmart Online Store for $100.
At first I thought this is a good buy for general house vacuuming. Then, after use of it for one year it started shutting itself off after 20 minute use. I had to time well where I wanted to vacuum. It ended up being so bad that I could not clean a carpet without it shutting off every three minutes. You then have to leave it for 24 hours before the motor is able to go again - that meant that I had little bits of carpet done over a period of 5 days - ridiculous!

Don't waste your money
Like the other reviewer said, pet hair and fluff gets caught in the inner barrel and have to remove manually (you get covered in dust & dirt). Seal falls out everytime you empty. The catch broke on the barrel not long after purchase and now hardly any suction. The cheap piece of sponge that acts as a filter was stuck to the machine the first time I emptied it and ripped in half. I wouldn't recommend buying.

Questions & Answers
What is the valve at the top of the dust canister for? Can’t find any reference to it in the manual. When it opens the suction reduces & I need to turn it off to get it to close again.

Just plug it in turn power on and press the button on top that has a circle with a line through it - should start
