The news is, recently Kenmore has stopped selling the orange canister vacuum model # 29319.
What to do!!??? I have searched everywhere and they were flying off the showroom floor at Sears, and Amazon, not one left on the shelf at the discounted price. I was just too late to snag two or three to use for work and home purposes. What a fantastic vacuum cleaner.
I have recently, with great struggle in my search, found the Burgundy Panasonic Canister Vacuum cleaner model #MC-CG902 You may find this on Amazon or type in the search bar for other locations. Panasonic Canister Vacuum Cleaner, Burgundy, MC-CG902
I purchased the vacuum before the holiday for approx. $200.00 well worth every dollar. All the same features as the Kenmore and uses the same bags. A 5-star review in my book. The best features that I can share with you is, fantastic power. I change the bag often at least once a week because I am working in different homes, but you should not have too unless you have pets and that's just normal.
Our housekeeping staff do not have to excessively bend to detach the wand to pick up a bug or vacuum corners. There is a foot attachment that when easily pressed the carpet head comes right off. It has a 360-degree swivel for easy movement in any direction when pulling behind you. This vacuum has four attachments that are so easy to install. You can vacuum lamp shades, upholstery, sliding glass tracks, and tile or wood floors. The carpet head has so much power High, Medium, Low and Ex-Low. When detaching the wand, you do not have to slouch, bend, pull or push and this is important to us as far as safety and excessive stress on your body when using the vacuum.
For first time use, be aware the connections may be tight to pull off or attach as the vacuum is new. Advice is to wait until after the holiday for the price to reduce. Best wishes and happy vacuuming.
