I have finally given up with this cleaner as the motor has started making weird noises and is giving out a strong smell of burning again. (8 months this time). I tried phoning the number given for problems, you do not return it to where ever you purchased it from, but got a message saying the number was temporarily unavailable!!! In case you're wondering I vacuum 2 rooms 2/3 times a week.
It is also very noisy. My mum has the same model. I didn't realise this when I got mine. When my daughter used mums cleaner (she was very kindly helping her nan out) she asked if there was something missing. When mum asked what she meant my daughter replied "where are the ear plugs?" Mum has also had to call out the engineer, within the guarantee. The on/off switch broke off and all he could do was glue it back together.
In addition, I agree with another reviewer with regards to emptying and cleaning. For a cleaner supposedly designed for pet owners, emptying the cylinder properly can take an age if there is cat hair mixed in with the dust. You will find yourself using all manner of improvised devices in an effort to dislodge the majority of what you have just vacuumed up from the upper area of the cylinder.
Stay away from this one, it's truly dreadful.
The worst problem is the suction, which is woeful, so pathetic that it renders the pet cleaning implement unusable because it doesn't have enough power to rotate the brush! Even when the vacuum cleaner has been emptied and the filter cleaned the suction isn't sufficient to cope with carpets of any nature, so as I follow the vacuum cleaner around I am forced to pick up the small pieces of fluff it leaves behind by hand. After cleaning a bathroom carpet on my hands and knees for 15 minutes using the nozzle I still needed to use selotape to remove the hair and fluff that it refused to pick up.
The filter seems to be the main cause of the loss of suction, instantly becoming clogged up with dirt and dust and requiring constant maintenance. Rather than being able to "tap" it clean as suggested in the manual, what you actually need to do is clean it out using a screwdriver or similar implement, since using a brush merely causes the dust and dirt to clog up on either end of the filter. The filter clogging up causes the suction to become so weak after cleaning an average sized living room or 2 bedrooms that you then need to clean the filter before carrying on - a painstaking task which takes a good 5 minutes.
I ended up getting so frustrated with the filter I tried using the cleaner without it. The suction was incredibly powerful and at last it seemed to be doing the job. However after a few minutes the machine started giving out a burning smell suggesting this wasn't the way forward after all!
Another complaint is the noise, which is just horrendous - so bad it leaves your ears ringing!Read more ›
