Great vacuum cleaner provided you don’t have wooden floors as the electrical cable gets caught underneath again and again and again - extremely frustrating

Good but

published

We have dogs and this works well. However, I find it very annoying when power cord ends up under the machine as I vaccum around furniture and the triangle shaped filter on the inside in the part you empty gets blocked and the only way I have found to empty it is to soak in water , wait and try to wash out the hair and dirt it contains. It has a fine mesh cover and there are holes in the top for dust to go into it.

Almost great, but not.

published

Mostly a great vacuum cleaner, but I'm here to point out the one huge disappointment (for us).
1. The integrated dusting brush is rubbish. It requires a bit of a knack to move it back and forth, but even more importantly it's poor quality. The bristles are weak and the mechanism that locks it into position wore out after about 18 months which renders it completely useless because it no longer locks into position. We had to buy an after market brush. The integrated brush is a great idea but this design seems really poor, which is why it failed. We would have given it 5 stars, but the brush is important for us.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi for $550.

See you later Dyson

I have known for a very long time that Miele were great vacuums as I have used this very early on in life. My sisters Monster-In-Law gave her one as a wedding gift and I used to visit and use it occassionaly to help around the house. The first thing I noticed, was how quiet it is on the lowest setting. While it was on low, you would think picking up floor dirt would be limited, but the power of this vacuum is next to none. I now have this model and can only say, great investment and great performance. Other expensive vacuum cleaners are not only noisy, but also unreliable and expensive to fix. I have never had one problem with my one and I am someone who looks after great investments.

Very good and easy to use

published

I recently cleaned a house and they provided the Miele Blizzard CX1 to be used. I found this machine easy to use had excellent suction and was used on carpet and tiles and lino without a problem. The floors were very clean when finished. I never had any problems with the machine tipping over at any time and this included using it on carpeted stairs. I was also reasonably quiet to use. Loved it.

Cleans carpet beautifully

published

From thick carpet to floor boards cleans very well we have three cats and once floors are cleaned no more hair or dust bunnies. Keep roller brush free from long hair string and loose cotton we cut it out with scissors so the brush can freely spin.

Purchased for $659.

Perfect for those who have pets!!

published

This vacuum has been the ultimate lifesaver with both a cat and dog in the household. It is light weight and easy to carry up and down stairs. Great on carpet and hard surfaces. This bag-less vacuum means no more running out of vacuum bags.

Great Vacuum cleaner

I use it on both carpet and hard flooring.
Picks up dog & cat fur with ease on all surfaces. Great suction, easy to clean, no ongoing costs, no issues whatsoever and comes with all the attachments needed at a great price point.

Blizzard CX1 Comfort (SKMR3)

The flap on the dust container is attached to the dust container by two hinges, two clear plastic pieces on the container, and two black fittings on the flap. Whilst cleaning the container with, by definition, the flap hanging open, one of the lap hinges detached itself, with the result that the other did too, and the whole flap came off. It proved virtually impossible to get the two flap hinges back into the dust container clips. One of the two dust container clips had worn. It took nearly an hour to get the flap hinges back into the container clips (or whatever they are called). I am frightened that another few emptyings of the container will lead to a repeat of the problem. I phoned Miele, Johannesburg, and they were most unhelpful. They said that the solution was an entire new dust container at R1700. Question: is there any way I can strengthen the two hinges so the flat bits do not come off again? Has anyone else had this problem? I notice that the new Blizzard has a single METAL hinge going all the way across the edge of the flap. So I presume the Miele engineers had been alerted to the flimsiness of the flap hinges design. Would be grateful for advice. And if possible a solution short of buying an entire new dust container.
