Anyone have problems with vacuums?!

I swear every single vacuum I ever owned stopped working! I just bought one in October or November and after a month it stopped sucking things through all the way so everytime i vacummed I would have to clean out the tube thingy! ..Well now I just started to vacuum and it just stopped working! i plugged it into every outlet and nothing! urghh!!! i am so done cleaning!

  • Yes every single darn vacume we have bought stops working or catches fire lol so my husband said he was tired of buying a new vacume every 6 months lol and he bought one and so far so good.

  • I could have owned two Dyson's with all the money I've spent on crappy vacuums over the years - I know Dyson is expensive but they do really work and never clog. Next time I buy one I'm definitely buying a Dyson.

  • YES!! there was a 2 year period I had gone through 3 different ones.. SO irritating! about 2-3 years ago we got a deal on a Dyson though and although yes, crazy expensive to me, we ( cross my fingers) haven't had any problems with it and the suction is awesome!!

  • That's why I bought a Dyson. and I still have problems. My Dyson was only 6 months old and it was completely clogged. I took it to get fixed. It's better now, but still doesn't suck like it should.

  • I had one.. well have.. that the hose would get clogged on and I would have to take apart everytime i used to because it would just stop picking things up! I grabbed a new one from a different brand and things are much better!
