Top critical review

This is an expensive vacuum. Our old Miele has worked hard for us for twenty years. This one however is a huge disappointment. First of all, the beater unit is very heavy and does not allow you much control (we used it on the "1" setting on a regular rug and it almost peeled it to the core). The electric motor is just too powerful. My advice: don't buy this attachment. The machine itself is made of very thin and flimsy plastic and doesn't seal easily, but the worst part is that the Hepa filter pops out of place all the time, which stops the suction. You have to open the hood and push the filter back in place, only to have it happen again after two minutes. I am going to try to get a new filter and see if it solves the problem but I doubt it. The catch inside is just too short.
