Looking at the part numbers, apparently there might be something wrong
with the Electrolux EL7055A canister vacuum cleaner. It's being sold as
refurbished, while the slightly different model number EL7055B is being
sold as new (for twice the price). I'm trying to figure out what went
wrong, if anything, with the "A" model. Anybody know? I'll keep
researching the issue.
Any "refurbished" appliance is going to be sold for much less
that the identical new item. Properly done, they are as good as new.
As for Elextrolux, my experiences have been that they are OK
at doing the job, well made and terribly overpriced.
The only difference usually is the price. If the company was selling direct
at half price, they would PO all the regular retail dealers, thus the
designated "refurbished" units. Many companies do this, Black & Decker is
one of the biggest with outlet stores. I've been in manufacturing plants
and have seen the alleged refurbished units coming down the same assembly
line using the same parts as the regular goods.
I think the B is a slightly newer model, with the main difference
being 360" swivel on the power head that attaches to the hose/arm, the
A model only swivels to the right. I just purchased a "refurbished"
model form Overstock and they sent me the "B" model - 7055B.
