Bought it, used it two times on an area rug, not even on the regular room carpet, third time and not suctioning. There wasn't much in the canister as I had only used it twice, but I emptied it out anyway. Still not suctioning. Troubleshooted, and still nothing. Guess it's true when they say, "you get what you pay for". Should have just spent the extra on a more solid cleaner. Now gotta deal with returning it...ugh..so not happy right now!! Just spend the extracted bucks for a better model.
This vacuum has no suction power. It spits the stuff it’s supposed to suck out the back at my feet. The hose is constantly plugged. I have to clear the line and it still doesn’t suck good. It just shuts off randomly after about five minutes and won’t restart till much later. I shouldn’t be having this much trouble with a vacuum. I like that it swivels and has a small front for my small apartment and spaces. If it worked right I would be satisfied.
We got this as a wedding gift. It worked great for the first 2 months. Ever since then it’s been a never ending cycle of getting out the screwdriver, unclogging the hose, and letting it cool down. I have to do this about 3 times PER ROOM. And today, it all of a sudden stopped turning on. My outlet works because I tested a lamp in it, it’s the vacuum that won’t turn on.
I bought this vacuum back in 2017 and have had no problems with it. It cleans the messes my kids make and the pet hair from my pets amazingly. I will definitely be buying another black and decker vacuum when this one finally gives out on me.
It was great, I suppose. I've had it for almost two years and only a couple of problems with it. One: when put the center back together two little notches broke off and it was a pain to keep it together cause if it didn't all the fur would get trapped in the top part instead of the cannister. Two: would get a burning smell from time to time but it still sucked up well. BUT now I'm writing this review because it won't turn on. At least it lasted longer than a couple of times.
Bought this vaccum less than a month ago and used it literally twice. During the second time, it just shut off.
I cleaned out the hoses and every part where it might be clogged and let it rest.
I read that it may have turned off so it wouldn't overheat and to let it rest for half an hour.
Waited two hours and nope, won't turn on.
