Not minor cosmetic blemishes for this Factory-Refurbished. It's everywhere.
on December 3, 2011
I knew this is a factory refurbished product and some minor cosmetic blemishes are expected. But the one I received has scatches everywhere. Yes, everywhere. The handle, the up/sides/buttom of the canister, the wheels, and the power head all have scratches. Some are even 2" long and deep. Even Dirts on wheels! It seems like it has been abused for years, and just simply repacked it without cleaning. I really doubt if the Electrolux has quality control or not. For me, this is a garage sell item, not "FACTORY" refurbished. But be fair, this vacuum is powerful. Just don't know how long it will last because it's a question mark for Electrolux's quality control. Even though the shipping is free, but you need to pay back the original shipping fee if you want to return it + the return shipping charge. So think twice before you buy, you can get a brand new one from Costo for $299.
