Cons of Eureka 437AZ Optima Lightweight Upright Vacuum:

  • Plastic rear wheels feel flimsy, the quality could be better.
  • It is messy to clean the filter, but not that hard. Dust, dirt, pet hair and other dirty things trapped there, you’d better clean it outside.
  • To keep the vacuum running at its peak performance, it is suggested to clean the filter after each use, or it can get clogged or be overheating, then it may stop working.
  • It is too small to do a large house. And the cleaning width is narrow.
  • Dust cup is not big, fills up fast, requires frequent emptying, especially if you have pets.
  • Power cord is short, you may need an exension cord.
  • The power cord does not retract automatically.
  • The hose do not stretch out well.
  • The exhaust is located at the front of the vacuum cleaner. It can blow stuff away when you tend to pick them up. To avoid this, you can angle the vacuum back a bit so that it won’t blow dust and dirt around. Or DIY something to make the exhaust upward.
