I purchased a top of the line Kenmore Central Vacuum System approx. 5 years ago...It was a problem from the start..the estimated cost for install in the store was $100 when it came time for the install it was over $500...all of the piping was already in...we just wanted to move the unit from one side of the basement to the other...meaning one pipe had to be rerouted...on the unfinished side of the basement...I had an indepentant guy do it for $100...The wheels on the power head are always broken..I just ordered my 5th set...I also had a problem where the hose plugs into the power head...the socket burnt should have been a simple fix...but they do not make a $10 replacement part...I had to purchase the entire hose for over $200...I will never buy a Sears product again!!!

    Oh My Gosh, we had the same problem where the hose attaches to the power head, the socket burnt out and we too had to purchase a $200.00 dollar part to fix a $10.00 dollar problem. We are now facing yet again another problem with the power head, the electrical wires have broken and we are forced to try and get a new part or spice and dice the wires and hope they hold. All in all, I would never purchase another Kenmore vacuum system - the whole thing has cost way more that it's worth in the repair bills that we are constantly confronted with and the quality is just not there for the initial investment, buyers beware

    I purchased a Kenmore canister vac. the power head cuts off intermittently, out of warranty so I purchased another one(good suction) but now the powerhead quit working. Don't buy one.
