If you post a question about a home appliance I will try to keep a list of appliances and their post number where they are mentioned in the first thread. If I miss one, give me a heads up in the thread or PM me.

This week our 15 year old Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner pooped out, the floor sweeper is no longer powered. I opened it up and hoped that I’d be able to replace the belt and/or the bulb, but the belt was not broken. At that point I decided it was time to replace it versus spending money to repair it. This item was so well built! So I’ve heard Sears and it’s brands are going through some changes. I read that the vacuum cleaners were made by Panasonic, but I don’t know when they started making them for Sears and as of 2016, they were getting out of the vacuum cleaner business at least in the US, so new Kenmore brand vacuums would be made by some other Chinese company I’ve never heard of. Anyway, I decided to take a chance and purchased the above model from Sears.com for $220. I unpacked it today and so far so good. The quality seems good as what I expected. It operates fine, and is not overly loud. This is also the first bagless canister I have owned and I am slightly concerned about comments that the Kenmore quality is no longer there. We’ll see how it goes and I’ll report back with any updates.
