    My vacuum has been smelling like a dumpster fire for years every time I run it. I just keep on!

    It’s a Dyson canister type, no belt. Smelled like a cap gun for those old enough to know what that smells like. Their website used that exact analogy for the problem with mine. Cost prohibitive to repair. Never liked that thing anyway.

    They are damned proud of those things, though. Generally the most expensive vacuums you see in the store are Dyson.

    Mine caught fire...so we returned it and got a different one entirely. I don't particularly care for it; it's heavy and it's hard to just do small chores without it being a big task...

    Ouch. The good ones aren't cheap.

    I remember cap guns.

    Our cleaning service gal uses a lightweight Shark Rocket. Seems to work good.

    That's a different vac than the Shark Rocket. I used the Rocket on my music room and thought it was light and easy. Prefer it over our fancy German made vac.

    I sold Kirby vacuum sweepers for a brief period. Long enough that my mom bought a G6 with all the attachments (the house was a seasonal B&B, so she was able to claim it as a business expense and deduct depreciation for the years allowed. I sold it for my cost $650 when I was supposed to sell them for $1000. Its nice, self propelled in both directions, and has held up well but there's no freaking vacuum cleaner worth a grand. And that company is a multilevel scheme where you buy it from the guy above you, and each level gets a cut).
