Review: Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum Cleaner

Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum CleanerDid you know that the Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum Cleaner (Model # EL6984A) is one of the most popular vacuum cleaners for home use? Over the years, the Electrolux brand has routinely been associated with reasonably good products at an affordable price.

While Electrolux is not as well known as Bissel and Dirt Devil, their vacuum cleaners tend to be within the same range of quality.  That said, many people still feel that Hoover and Dyson far outrank any of these companies.

While you are learning more about the Electrolux Canister Vacuum Cleaner, you will be well served by considering how much easier it will be to keep wood floors clean.

Product Features

  • Low noise— If you live in an apartment, or other area where noise is an issue, this is sure to be a useful feature.
  • Adjustable suction levels— When you need an extra bit of suction for animal hair or dust simply change the settings for increased power.
  • Bag full indicator— Why deal with dust all over the house, or emptying the bag sooner than needed when this simple indicator will tell you precisely when to empty the bag?

What buyers like about the product

  • Lightweight. Buyers that have staircases in their homes found the light weight to be very helpful.
  • Quiet. No matter whether you have a headache or thin walls in an apartment building, the reduced noise level of the Electrolux UltraSilencer Green was helpful to many buyers.
  • Easy to maneuver. A number of customers noted that they had no problems getting under counters or into other tight areas.

Hear it From Buyers:

Camilla Jones – I have two sons, both with bedrooms upstairs. Lugging around a heavy vacuum cleaner is very difficult.  I was very happy to see that this lightweight vacuum cleaner worked just as well as heavier ones.

Josh Greene – Even though I am not a neatness freak, I hate having dust under tables and counters.  That’s why I was really glad to see this vacuum cleaner was so easy to use in spots where I could not reach with my Dyson.

What buyers don’t like about the product

  • Cord retractor does not work correctly. A number of buyers noticed that the cord retractors stopped working after just a few days.
  • Plastic parts are flimsy and break easily. Several buyers noticed that the casings and attachments cracked or fell apart within just a few months.
  • Does not work on carpets. Some customers found that this vacuum cleaner works well enough on wooden floors, but does not work at all on carpets.

Hear it From Buyers:

Kevin Wilfrey – Even though I wasn’t expecting to own the best vacuum cleaner in the world, I never thought a vacuum cleaner that costs over $200.00 would come with attachments that started cracking in just a few weeks.

Donna James – I could not believe it when the cord on my new vacuum cleaner did not retract at all.  To add insult to injury, the first time I ran this vacuum cleaner over a low pile carpet, the attachment actually broke apart.

Our Recommendations

Overall, we do not feel the Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum Cleaner is suitable for a high maintenance household. It may work well enough if you have all wooden floors in your home, no pets, and no children. That said, if you need to vacuum on a daily basis, you might be better served by looking for a better vacuum cleaner in this price range.
