Question about Kenmore Vacuums
My Kenmore canister vacuum is about 6 years old. Today when I was using it, smoke suddenly started coming out from the canister motor area. The motor was also making a funny, dying sound. We unplugged it and let it sit an hour, but the same problem persists. We've changed the bag and filters and made sure that there are no blockages.
The vacuum has never been serviced before. I am wondering if it is worth looking into getting it repaired or is it better to replace it.

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./
I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.
