I know I'm getting a little bit annoying but I'm just learning and discovering about Felix as it is a really tempting machine.
My partner's sister hasn't bought a new cleaner yet as she's not sure if Felix will be good for her. She's thinking about buying Shark Lift away as it's in sale now on Amazon and a lot of her friends recommend that.
I found some intriguing comment on Youtube:Do not buy this product in the UK - I used it twice and the button for release of base stopped working properly. Customer services basically blamed me for accidental damage and said that the 5 year warranty did not apply to anything external. There are no service engineers in the UK and I was left with fixing it myself or paying to send it to them. I think the Germans have a word for this product - MIST
As I'm thinking about it now, I've seen machine twice. Once in Lewis' store and it had a problem with bag closing. It didn't want to click for some reason and it kept popping out. The cleaner was also strangely pulling forward on carpet while turned on. It was like a dog on a lead. Is it normal? And another time in a hotel where I was staying. It was blowing really warm air all the way around the outer shroud. So basically while using it in handheld mode it would just blow on me?
A lot of people complain about the smell. Well, you get fresheners with it wherever you buy it which means that smell is quite certain, am I right?
I've also seen a video where a guy was saying that Felix got a different kind of belt that ain't gonna snap. I didn't even know that it had a belt.
So bag is main filter. Is it better than Miele's bags then? Miele's exhaust filters get really dirty even with genuine bags so in Miele's case bag is not a very efficient filter.
If Sebo's bags aren't better than in my eyes shroud will get dirty.
