Eureka Uno Bagless Upright - 2998AZ

When I first brought this vacuum home, I thought it was great. It picked up a ton of dirt on the first run and the power paw seemed to do a good job on stairs and upholstery. But after only 2 days, the belt broke, requiring 2 hours on the telephone...

Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

In the realm of describing certain members of the human species, I am sure you have heard of the term “high maintenance”. In the world of carpet steam vacs, I would give that honor to this Bissell machine. This is actually my ...

Hoover WindTunnel U8361-900 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Fantom vacuum cleaner was on it's last leg and after doing much research I came across the Hoover Wind Tunnel 2, U8361-900. I instantly fell in love with all the features this vacuum had to offer. Not only did it come with an hose extender, pet hair...

Eureka Altima Upright Vac - 2991AVZ

This vacuum never worked. It was on sale at Target and I bought it for the cheap price, and got what I paid for. The "power paw" upholstery attachment doesn't work by design. The duster just moves dust around without picking it up. The hose works but...

Bissell Healthy Home Steam Mop Max

Ditto. Absolute rubbish. I initially purchased it to clean really ground in grime from unsurfaced linoleum. Of course it didn't work but was great in our new tiled home.... initially. After the first 15 months it now leaks like a sieve. Takes a lot of...

Eureka 350A Handheld Steam Cleaner

The Eureka Hand Held Steam Cleaner looked just the thing for kitchen and bath for me. I wanted something to dislodge grease in the oven, clean a faucet or tub, and do it without chemicals, as many cleaners bother me. The problem with the Eureka Hand ...

Hoover U8183-900 Bagless Upright Vacuum

After only a few months of owning the Hoover Savvy 7400, the switch became faulty. It would turn off during use and only stay on if I held the handle at a particular angle while vacuuming (not an easy task). It has now reached the point were it will...

Hoover U8361-900 Windtunnel 2 Surface Command Bagless Upright Vacuum

I had this model, before kicking it to the curb, literally. You do not want to ever buy a Hoover vacuum that has the spinning, "self cleaning," HEPA filter, trust me. As others have said, and as I found out, the spinning filter is not self cleaning....

Eureka 2996AVZ Altima Bagless Upright Vacuum

Hoover WindTunnel II Complete Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum

There are few purchases I regret more than this vacuum cleaner. From the very first (I think we've had it for about 3 years) it sucked up and tore into it's own power cord, broke in multiple places so that if literally falls over if you don't rest it...

Kenmore 11 Amp Upright Vacuum Cleaner Tan & Brown (3701)

When my Kenmore vacuum broke after a little more than 6 months of use - complete with a bit of smoke and a burning smell - I opened it up to see what was wrong.  I expected the belt to be broken - but no, instead it was the beater bar.  The *wooden*...

Hoover TC1212

I agree with Henn, I use this for the cars where it is ultra portable and the handhelds don't hold enough charge for more than one car. It is quiet and efficient, the only downside is that the crevace tool is too wide for narrow gaps so I now use one...

Eureka 2971BVZ Altima Bagless Upright Vacuum

Ordered the 3rd brush for our 2996 model today. It barely gets used and it'll still smoke the brush bearings and belts, on average, one belt a month. Never had one that s****y before. Thankfully I didn't buy it, we got it as a wedding gift. Saving up...

Russell Hobbs Hepa Cyclonic 1800W / 2200W

I wish I had read everybody else's reviews before I bought it. This is a terrible vacuum. The handle release fell off and I can't get it back on. The on/off button is in an akward place. The attachments never stay on and I have lost one of them. It...
