Electrolux Sucker Canister Vacuum


What happened to the Electrolux quality? Purchased a refurbished EL7020L Oxygen 3 Ultra from CPO and it has only been a nightmare since it arrived. Cord would not retract, wand was missing a part that held on the floor head, and the belt broke. ...

Go through one cleaning without breaking down.

Cheaply made, poor quality, overall it sucks but not for the use it was purchased.

Love this Vac!!


I bought this when I was pregnant with twins because my old Royal upright was too heavy, too noisy (made my ears ring) and too messy (bagless). While I hate buying vac bags on principle (seems inherently wasteful), I don't mind buying them for this ...

Well placed controls, great for bare floors and area rugs, quiet, light but durable.

A bit pricey, bags not available everywhere (Lowe's and Sears).

Stopped working after one month!


One month ago I purchased the Electrolux Oxygen Canister from a reputable website. I had read many positive reviews, plus referred to Consumer Reports - all good. The vacuum itself it very small and light, however, that is were my positive comments ...

Light weight, small

Breaks down after one month! Clumsy and unpractical design. LIGHT and CHEAP PLASTIC. Very loud.

Our First Canister


I have been an aficionado of very simple, powerful upright vacuums. No self-propulsion - a useless, counterproductive feature in my mind; no light; no auto-height selector - - just suction power, baby! Friends and relatives have gone through various ...

Suction power, clean and effective ergonomics, ease of use.

Just got it today and the cord doesn't retract


I just received my Electrolux Oxygen 3 Ultra. I was looking for a great vacuum that didn't cost $1000. My grandmother had an Electrolux for 40 years. Good brand. I had been interested and checked out the Dyson but found it to be an ugly machine and the...

Powerful suction, ease of use, ultra quiet, wonderful wide floor brush, cord plenty long, attractive.

Cord doesn't retract, and the wheel marks left on the carpet are not very attractive.

No longer is Electrolux worth the money


We ran a home and office cleaning company and purchased a lot of vacuums, by far the WORST performing vacuum in the category of $300-$600 was the Electrolux, especially the EL7020A. Their telescopic wand is a joke, pure plastic, over time the slide ...


Just don't buy, save your money

What a disappointment!!!


We bought our vacuum online. The first day it worked great. On day two the vacuum didn't work. We called Electrolux, as it came with a notice to call them instead of returning it to the store. The person told us it needs a new hose because something is...

Vacuumed well for the one day it worked

Broke after one day. Seven calls to customer service and still no part.

Worth the money if you want a canister vac


I recently brought home a kitten and discovered that I have developed an allergy to cat dander. My old Eureka Bravo has worked fine for ten years with no repairs needed. But now I needed a HEPA vacuum because when it comes to pet dander, my old Bravo...

Sealed HEPA filtration

Clumsy to use, Overpriced

It broke within a couple of weeks.


I bought this at Lowe's. The store manager offered me 20% off the list price of $499 because the other model I wanted was not in stock. I got it home and went through the un-boxing ritual, being careful to put the attachments on a high table so they ...

Excellent suction, hasn't clogged yet!

I am still getting used to dragging the canister along as I clean.

Electrolux is still the best name in vacuums


The company and product has changed over the years, and nowadays to get a true Electrolux of the quality of 10 years ago will run you over $1000., but this lower price Electrolux model doesn't disappoint. I have been using Electrolux for over 30 years ...

Controls on handle, can go from floor to rug, good suction, easy to use.

The hose is a hard plastic, would prefer a softer more flexiable one.
