Ratings & reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. The motor started to make a noise and very quickly stopped working. Of course this happened after the warrantly period. I cannot remember if I've had it 1 year or 2, but no more than that. You should not have to buy extended warranty on any product. All you are doing is paying more for an inferior product. I do not believe this unit is worthy of throwing more good hard earned money to repair it. This is not my first air cleaner as I have allergies and it didn't come close to cleaning the air as well as others. I will not purchase another Kenmore air cleaner or recommend one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mold Problem My bathroom in the basement had a serious MOLD PROBLEM. When I say serious, I mean the entire subfloor collapsed and the entire wooden frame was covered in black mold and decaying wood pieces. I had no idea the impact mold has on our health until I spoke with my doctor who immediately told me that the basement was inhabitable and should renovate the washroom, even if I had to take a loan. When we deconstructed the basement washroom, the contractor recommended getting an air cleaner to help remove the toxic air born mold that would be released once disturbed. I purchased this Kenmore unit and kept it in my basement after the remediation and within three hours I noticed that 90% of the toxic mold and bleach odour was gone. I am a true believer of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product - Removes Tobacco Smoke I purchased this Air Cleaner (32702) nine months ago. My wife is a heavy smoker and despite how many times I begged her to go outside or in the garage, nothing has changed over the last ten years. I was at my wit’s end when one day I found this product on the Sears website. I've bought many air cleaners over the years, but to my disappointment, most of them winded up in my garage sales or the garbage bin. The price was high so this time I figured I'd Get What I Paid For. Well this time that idiom really held true. Tobacco smoke is wiped out! Thanks Kenmore for a great product. You saved my marriage. I won’t be turning this product off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product- Breathe Much Easier, Dust Less I just inherited a 32702 from my mother-in-law. It’s about 4 years old and runs beautiful. I have noticed my allergy symptoms have almost completely disappeared and my entire living area has a clean and pleasant scent. Even my bird seems healthier. There’s a drastic reduction of dander around the furniture and its cage. The bird is not sneezing anymore either. What I love the most about this unit is that I don’t have to replace any filters. I just have to wash them, dry them and they are good as new. I would recommend this product to anyone or for any pet with allergies.”

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SAME PROBLEM AS OTHER REVIEWS Yeah, I gotta agree with the other reviews on this - I had the exact same problem. I had it for about a year and it just died. Motor burnout or something, but the result is a very large paperweight and nothing more. I've shopped exclusively at Sears for over 20 years and in my opinion it's EXTREMELY rare that Sears produces a lemon under its Kenmore brand - my experience is that this is the sad exception to the rule!! If you do get this, MAKE SURE you get the extended warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware My husband and I purchased the Kenmore Air Cleaner (model#690AIV) less than 2 years ago. After using it for 1 year and 3 months, it started making a repetitive clicking sound and stopped working soon after that. The Sears service technician said that the motor died. It just cost us over $200 to repair it. Not worth the expense and aggravation!
