    Compared to Kenmore: Better and Worse, November 16, 2010
    C. MacPhail (Solana Beach, CA USA) –
    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)

    This review is from: Electrolux EL6988E Oxygen Canister Vacuum (Kitchen)

    We had two mid-range Kenmore canister vacs prior to this.

    The Electrolux Oxygen (EL6988E) is many ways better and many ways worse.

    Check out the list for what matters most to you.

    Prices bounce around. Low tide for this model is about 325 delivered.


    * Quieter (significantly)

    – Power head pivots in both directions and has larger wheels. Easier to maneuver.
    – Wand length adjusts (34″ to 47″)
    – 2-year warranty (vs 1-year for Kenmore)
    – LED headlights & height indicator
    – Bag-full indicator light (Kenmore’s is less visible)


    – Suction is quite good
    – 3rd party bags: 36 Oxygen Vacuum Bags are available at 50% savings (as with Kenmore)
    – Auto shut-off when motor overheats or power head stalls
    – Weight: 22.8 lbs (16.9 without power head). Kenmore is 21.5 lbs (16.3)
    – Floor Brush: Electrolux is 60 % wider (13.7″ vs 8.5″) (but suction is less concentrated)
    – Both Kenmores died after 5.5 years. Will Electrolux last longer?


    * Cord is only 20.3 ft long (Kenmore is 30% longer. 26.5 ft. Very handy.)
    * Dust bag is 40% smaller (appx 180 vs 300 cu. in.) (More expense, more hassle)
    * Hose is flimsy (Big difference vs Kenmore) (and replacement is $47)
    * Lacks swivel hose mount on base unit. (Hose kinks and will eventually crack)
    * Power switch is on the base, not the handle. (and is easily confused with the cord-retract button)
    * Floor brush can’t be stored on-board (Small nozzle & furniture brush store on the wand handle)
    * Generic nozzles won’t fit. Only Electrolux nozzles.
    * More expensive. (Check Panasonic model that’s almost identical to the Kenmores we had.)

    – Manual is less useful. Fewer tips & troubleshooting details. Doesn’t include full parts diagram & part numbers. Electrolux provides fewer product specifications at their Web site.

    I am comparing to a 2005 Kenmore mid-range vac. Current models may differ.

    Check reviews for the Panasonic MC-CG902 Canister Vacuum Cleaner. It’s about identical to the mid-range Sears Kenmore canister vac.

    Summary: A good vac with lots of flaws: 3.5 stars.
