Suction is good but lots of design flaws
Power cord is way too short, cannot open the carpet cleaning head to clean it and it constantly clogs, strip of rubber fell off front of carpet head after a
Couple of uses, cannot find replacement filters which is an absolute joke.
Purchased in February 2022 at Kmart Retail Stores for $99.
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.
Purchased for $69.
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.
Purchased in November 2018 for $99.
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.
