What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This vacuum has been great, but.. This vacuum has lasted us about two years now. It worked wonderfully until it began to make this horrible sound from the beater brush area. I took the face off of the brush to reveal that one side of the beater bar had jammed up and melted the caster that it was on, this in turn has ripped up and melted the mount point, so not only do i need to find a new beater bar, i also need to find a new plastic mounting piece; which I believe is the entire bottom part of the vacuum. Overall a great vacuum, lets see how hard replacement parts are to find and to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum This thing has tons of sucking power and just everything about it is awesome. There are two things I will say though. 1: When you want to just use it to clean up a quick mess, you have to remove the whole extension chord to remove the wand so that the handheld starts sucking. That or just force the wand out but then its hard to get back in since the chord is in the way. 2: It is a tad heavy but that's not a deal breaker. Other than those two things, my wife and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Vacuum We bought this vacuum on a friends recommendation. He suggested that we vacuum our rug with our old vacuum first, then use the LG. I was shocked. It was like it reached way down deep in the rug and pulled out the dust from the bottom. Really amazing. Cons: Sometimes suction is so great that it stops the bristles from turning...we see this on our thin rugs. Pros: Everything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing features Worth every penny! I used to replace vacuum cleaners every few months that could not hold up to daily demands. My household is filled with a Jack Russell Terrier, 2 large breed Newfoundlands and a husband who works in construction and this product easily switched from rugs, hardwood floors, furniture and window coverings. The extra long cord is perfect and the compression canister lets me clean longer before having to empty the canister. The allergy filtration is excellent. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loves this vaccum cleaner I had been shopping everywhere for the right cleaner and was getting frustrated about quality and price. Had decided to bite the bullet and get a Dyson when in the store and saw this one with the better price and features so I decided to try it. The vaccum is a little heavy but picks up great. My husband goes thru vaccum like crazy because of the dog hair. The carry pouch with the attachments is wonderful with no more where did I put it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease and convenience of use I replaced a windtunnel with theLUV400T. Was not expecting too much, but am extremely happy with all the features, especially the ease of going from rug to floor with just a thumb movement. Also love it does not eat my throw rugs. Have an extremely hairy dog and have to vaccuum at least once a day and it really does the job. I love the mattress cleaner, I used it to clean the top of the bed quilts, had no idea they were so dusty. This machine was engineered with overall house cleaning in mind. Love it, and would recommend to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it does what it says we have been using this vacum for about a month now and have found that it really does what it says it will. We have tried many other brands but none compare to this one. The suction is great and the fact that there are no more bags to deal with is a definate plus. It cost more and i was a more than a little hesitant to part with the funds but after using it, i have come to the conclusion that it was worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AVOID After one week, I returned LG's LUV400T vacuum because it DID NOT vacuum!!!! Excellent suction with only an attachment but with the power head the paper scraps on my carpet were just blown around. Tried all carpet height adjustments and speeds to no avail. Fortunately, I had purchased it at Sears and was able to easily return it. Not only do I NOT recommend this vacuum but I would advise caution in purchasing any other LG products due to my experience with this vacuum. CONSUMER REPORTS definitely goofed in regards to their rating of this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My LG LUV400T Vacuum I am really enjoying my new LG LUV400T Vacuum! I would definitely recommend this vacuum to family and friends. I had been comparing this product to many others over the last few weeks, seeing as my current vacuum had been falling apart left and right. This vacuum has the best features for the value beating the competition hands down! I am absolutely loving it and have been nothing but impressed by this product thus far! Not to mention my husband is enammered by the LED lights and the seperating blades in the collection container! Just an absolutely COOL yet functional household item, like a toy for us "Big Kids"!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy The only good thing about this vacuum is that it is bagless. If that is all you care about, then I would recommend this for you. But if you use your vacuum often as I do, you will be very unhappy. First of all, the vacuum is very heavy. Trying it in the store, gives you no idea. It is bulky, clumsy, and not easy to store. Next, the vacuum comes apart in a very inconvenient way. In order to use the small handle piece only, you have to take the hand "wand" completely out, and then what? You have to hold it in your other hand or set it down. The vacuum is not designed to be user friendly for someone who cleans baseboards, borders, or windows. The hose is long but tight so your hands get sore pulling to hold it out while trying to vacuum. Lastly, petty maybe, but the cord does not windup and store inside the vacuum. I did not rush into this purchase, thought I did my homework, and am sorry I did not get a good vacuum for my hundreds of dollars. The store I bought it from will not give me a full refund so I'm stuck with this for years to come, cursing every time I use it! Buyers.... beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such an improvement, powerful and clean I have had an LuV400T for a few months, it is really amazing. The first time I turned it on and ran it in my living room, I thought I broke it as it shut off after only doing a third of the floor. It turned out it had sucked up so much dust and dirt that my old vacuum hadn't that it was already full. Once full, I went to empty it for the first time and I LUV the Kompressor technology, all the dust and dirt come out in one lump, no dust flying about. It also has a great air filter on it, so my allergies didn't kick up at all while running it, definitely a plus. I'd say I only have two minor complaints, the hose can be a bit tight when running which is understandable, make sure you pull it out before turning it on, adjusting it feels 'heavy'. The other is that the animal attachment is on it by default, which the spinning brush doesn't seem to do much, and makes it a bit difficult to pull the handle/wand section in and out of unit with the cord in place. Even with those two issues, I give it a 5 out of 5 and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good Machine Replaced a windtunnel with this machine about 3 months ago. Use it a minimum of once a week and generally twice a week (with 5 big dogs, need to use it daily - but that's not happening). The LG 400 is much quieter than the windtunnel. Picks up dog hair on our tile, wood and rugs with no problems. No issues what-so-ever with how well it cleans - would have given it 5 stars for picking up dirt and dog hair. So far no mechanical issues, but it is squeaking a bit (regardless of the heighth adjustment setting). The hand tools are just OK. While I love the concept for the handle on the hand tool, it gets in the way when you're trying to reach under narrow spaces. Also, disconnecting the handle to become a hand tool is more cumbersome that the windtunnel, and the suction power on the handtool is diminished. Love the bagless compressor feature. The disgusting hair/dirt combo that comes out when emptied doesn't stir into the air as easily. The dirt compartment is a bit broad, making it more difficult to vacuum under tables. Height adjustment, and suction power are all easy to change. Vacuum is easy to operate (didn't read the instruction book). Again - it cleans up the dog hair and dirt brilliantly - which for me, is the most important feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum! We have been searching for a vacuum for two months and actually returned two other highly rated vacuums before finding the LUV400T. This was the keeper. Ease of assembly, great features such as click & go, and the power are great. We really like the way this vacuum handles and the amount of accessories for different cleaning areas is super. I would highly recommend this vacuum to anyone. Great product - thanks LG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum! Before, I decided to purchase an LG Kompressor LUV400T vacuum, I did a lot of research. Most of the reviews I read have been very positive. I have also been pleased with other LG products I have in my house, and I decided I would get this vacuum as a result. Anyway, I just got my vacuum about a month ago. I know it is extremely early to write a review for a product that I have just received, but I will update this at a later time. I also want to describe the whole process of setting it up, while it is fresh in my head, for anyone considering buying a vacuum. The vacuum comes more or less completely assembled and ready to use right out of the box. The only attachments that have to get connected are the hose and cleaning wand/handle assembly. It took about five minutes for me to unwrap the parts and get everything all hooked up. The directions were really easy to follow, and they allow for you to get the vacuum up and running in no time. No tools were required for the setup process. My initial impression is that all of the parts have a quality build and feel to them. Hopefully, that will be a sign of a reliable vacuum. I feel the best way for me to write a review is to explain the circumstances in how I use the product. I have an older cape cod style house. Most of the rooms in my house are finished with a medium pile carpet including my stairs. My bathrooms and kitchen are ceramic tile. I also have two miniature Australian shepherds (which shed a ton and have long hair) and two short haired cats that also shed. I have to vacuum on a regular basis to keep my carpets cleaned. After I assembled my vacuum, I put it to the test. I adjusted the height of the vacuum based on the pile height of my carpet. It is a simple foot lever that cycles between the different 4 different settings on the vacuum (Low to Medium Low to Medium to High back to Low). The first thing I noticed when I started the vacuum is how quiet it is. More importantly, the vacuum did a great job at picking up hair and dirt from my carpets. I was truly impressed! I used the hose and air brush attachment to clean my carpeted stairs. The air tool worked great for that! I was able to leave my vacuum at the bottom of my steps and use the hose to reach all the way to the top. The handle becomes part of the wand tool, and it has all of the control buttons needed to run the vacuum remotely (power, suction power level, brush roll power). While I am on the subject of reach, the power cord is ridiculously long. I was able to do my entire house without unplugging the vacuum. Granted, I had to fully extend the air hose and use the pet tool to do an upstairs room. The dirt compression feature is really nice. I had a hard time judging how much stuff my vacuum picked up until I emptied it. The vacuum is really easy to empty. The vacuum has a rinse-able HEPA filter, and it comes with a spare rinse-able pre-filter. The major con I have so far is that the vacuum is heavy. My fiance' might have a hard time using it. A smaller con is that the vacuum needs two "AAA" batteries to control all of its functions. However, the vacuum can still be powered on if the batteries are not installed/dead.

The Wand is not working

The vacuum is a couple years old. This vacuum does not get heavy use as we live in a condo with no pets. The wand power will not go on, therefore we cannot use the vacuum without using the brush. We have hardwood floors and adjust height for carpet rooms. We replaced the batteries and still no luck. Any thoughts on how to get this to operate?
Asked by: MikeLa
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this Vacuum Cleaner. Check the wiring in the wand handle to ensure that the connections are meeting properly. If this is not the case, then the unit may require service. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.

can we clean our hepa filter or replace it. If we need to replace it, where can we find one

Asked by: sewn4ever
Yes, the HEPA filter can be both cleaned and replaced. To clean it, remove the exhaust filter cover, and lift out the filter by pressing the hook. Wash the filter cleanly in flowing water. Remove all moisture, and allow the filter to dry completely, away from sunlight. Never run the unit with a wet filter. Accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. The part number for the HEPA Exhaust Filter Assembly is ADQ72913001.
