Getting the Best Results

Carpets : Use the power nozzle. (Brushroll ON)

Crevices, corners, etc.: Use the crevice tool.

Curtains, lightweight fabrics, etc.: Use the dusting brush. Reduce suction power if necessary.

Frames, bookshelves, etc.: Use the dusting brush.

Upholstered furniture: Use the upholstery tool.

S-Bag Indicator and Changing the S-Bag

For peak performance the S-Bag should be changed when full. The S-Bag indicator window will fill red when full.The S-Bag full indicator may also signify that the bag is blocked (occasionally caused by very fine dust) which will cause loss of suction and may result in overheating. If this occurs change the bag even if it is not full. To check the S-Bag full indicator, the cleaner must be switched on.

Replacing the S-Bag 1. The S-Bag should be replaced when the indicator window is red. 2. Open the front lid and lift out the Air Basket containing the S-Bag. 3. Open the Air Basket and lift out the S-Bag by pulling the cardboard tab up. This automatically seals the S-Bag and prevents dust and debris from leaking out. 4. Insert a new S-Bag by pushing the cardboard through the groove slots of the Air Basket, close the Air Basket lid, and put the Air Basket back into the cleaner. Note: Be sure to replace the S-Bag each time after vacuuming carpet-cleaning powder. Be sure to use only Genuine Electrolux S-Bag.

Well I love the suction, and the power upholstery attachment, however there are a number of serious design flaws. The worst flaw is the hose, it is very cheap and stiff, although it can theoretically swivel on both ends, you will have to twist it with your hands for it to do so. The hose comes out of the canister at a nearly vertical angle so there is not enough sideways force to make it swivel even if they did have a half way decent swivel attachment. The result is that the hose is constantly kinking and every time you move a few feet the canister flips upside down. Adding to the flipability of the vacuum are the two large wheels on the sides that prevent the canister from turning easily. Rotating wheels would have been a big help here. I have a 1980's Hover canister that has never flipped. If I could buy an old Hover I would.

My next disappointment was the swiveling arm, which by the way swivels like a dream, so I know they can make a good swivel (try putting it on the hose). I thought I would like this feature however I have found that it makes turning the power head very difficult. When I push the arm to the side instead of moving the head to the side it just swivels the arm. To actually change the direction of the head I have to pick it up turn it and put it back down again (this can get very tiring). Additionally since the hose is kinked all the time, it puts sideways pressure on the arm as a result I am constantly fighting to keep the arm vertical.

On last flaw regards how attachments attach to the arm. The power attachments have a very loose connection and will come off with just a little pressure. When vacuuming under the couch I have pulled the arm back out and found that the power attachment was left behind.

We ordered this canister vacuum because we wanted a canister type vac for versatility, a bagged as opposed to bagless, and a pet hair attachment. The Jetmaxx seemed to have a lot of good features and the build quality is pretty good, but ultimately it fell too short of expectations to be a keeper.

After taking the Jetmaxx for a test drive against a Panasonic Optiflow, we noted the following positives and negatives:

-Jetmaxx has a long 5-year warranty.
-HEPA filtration and included filter is washable.
-21' retractable cord.
-Full bag indicator.
-Fairly quiet operation, especially with canister running only. Power nozzle definitely ups the decibels, but still not as loud as the Eureka Boss upright we were replacing.
-Good selection of included tools: wide, high quality bare floor brush, crevice tool, upholstery tool, and dusting brush.
-"Crush-proof" 7' hose.
-Quality filters.
-Convenient dust bag basket.
-Dust bags have a tab you can pull over the hole once the bag is full to seal the dust/dirt from blowing out when it's time to change to a new bag.
-Slots for accessories, such as the bare floor brush.
-Automatic height adjustment of power nozzle. Not totally sure how well this worked in terms of proper suction, but seemed kinda nice to not have to worry about what height you need to set the power nozzle to.
-Compatible with EL8BS2 Electrolux One Pet Hand Powerbrush Accessory.

-Dust bag is tiny @ 1.2 quarts.

i haven't had any problems with this vacuum. i bought it to replace a two year old sears kenmore, which was an expensive clunker that fell apart, so we decided to buy a cheap canister. bought this in sam's club for around 250.00. and fell in love with it from the first day. the suction is terrific, The hose is a bit stiff and does fight you and it could swivel better, but the canister stays put on the floor and follows you well. The attachments are easy to get to, easy to get on and off. The vac.just does the job like a good little elf. i've had this for about four months now and actually enjoy using it. far superior to the big, pricey kenmore. smaller but just as powerful. the brush head is great. very wide, so it covers a large area an easy to get under furniture. i am planning to get another one for upstairs to replace that kenmore. i highly recc. this item.

UH OH. problems. maybe I'm doing something wrong, but the two new vacuums I bought (one for upstairs, one for downstairs). it seems that the power heads shut off every time I use it on rugs, which - duh - that's what they are made for. red light comes on, and power head stops. both vacs, so it's a design issue. am going to call the company. vacs work fine if I lift them slightly up off the rug as I vacuum, but I shouldn't have to do that. will let you know further.

I love my vacuum!

I have four parrots, so the first test was running the carpet head over their "spills", it made a totally clean path trough it with no seeds, crumbs, pellets and what not coming back out and hitting my legs, nor spraying out the side. It's a first, and I have had many other vacuums. I tried it around the Christmas tree, and it just sucked up those pesky sticky pine needles, without clogging the brush or hose. Then I tried it on my hardwood floors, and it got every little piece of dirt from there too. What I have done before is to go over them with my regular vacuum, and then use my little Swiffer vacuum to get all the fine stuff that always was left behind... No more! :D

I saw that some people have problems with the hose kinking and the canister tipping. I can't say that I have experienced the same. The hose swivels like a dream, and the canister stays upright the whole time. Nor do I have problems with the power tool coming off, like I saw some customers comment upon.

The reason for me finally deciding upon an Electrolux was that I remember being a small child (some 45 years ago) and my mom had an old Electrolux canister vacuum. As it was getting up in age my brother got her a new non-Electolux pretty expensive vacuum. I think it was a Panasonic. Well, she tried it, got rid of it and went back to using her then already old Electrolux. I know she had hers for over 35 years. I don't know if mine will last as long, probably not, but that's not really the point. It's that I also remembered her saying that her new "fancy" vacuum, did not clean nearly as well as her old trusted Elecrolux.

I only wish that it came with a stair attachment.....
