Features of Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaners
HEPA Filtration System: retains 99.97% of dust and other irritants that trigger allergies and asthma, and ensures only clean air is being exhausted back into the room for good indoor air quality.
Bagless Cyclonic Technology: features true cyclonic separation powered by a 12 amp motor for strong suction power and effective filtration.
Easy-Empty Dust Container: is easy to remove and empty featuring a large handle and a quick-release button to open and empty dirt and debris into the trash.
ErgoShock Cord: looks similar to an elastic bungee-cord and wraps around the front of the vacuum to double as a furniture bumper guard, onboard storage for tool attachments and a hose wrap system for compact and tidy storage.
Soft-Start Technology: a short delay will occur between pressing the power on button and the motor reaching full power. This technology helps protect the motor.
Convenient Design: includes user-friendly features such as brush roll controls on the handle, variable suction control on the canister, automatic cord rewind, and large ergonomic carrying handle.
Quick Release, Telescopic Wand System: offers easy height adjustment from either end of the wand and every part of this vacuum has a quick release button for smooth tool changes and multiple cleaning configurations.
Carpet to Bare Floor Convenience: quickly switch the power brush off with just slide of a button for smooth transitions from carpet to bare floors or delicate rugs.
DeepClean Power Brush: has a 13-inch cleaning path, high-suction motor and aggressive brush roll action for deep down removal of dirt, debris and pet dander. Three carpet height levels accommodate a variety of carpet pile and thickness for superior cleaning performance.
Deluxe Bare Floor Brush: included to clean your delicate hard wood or tiled floors; features natural horsehair bristles and a 14-inch cleaning path.
Accessory Tools: include a dusting brush, crevice tool and upholstery tool for above the floor cleaning. Crevice tool and dusting brush are stored under the vacuum handle; upholstery tool is not kept onboard.
Easy Maintenance: all filters are easy to access for cleaning and replacing. The dust container, cyclonic filter and foam filter can be washed periodically when dirty (every 3-4 months). The HEPA exhaust filter only need to be changed once a year and the pre-motor filter can be visually checked when the dust container is emptied to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Our product testers were pleased with the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner. It provides a compact canister design with bagless convenience and a high quality filtration system that does not leak particles back into the air.
Exhausts 99.3% clean air with no leakage around bagless dirt container. Our test results showed the HEPA exhaust filter removed 99.3% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns. We also took a number of particle readings all around the canister to make sure there was no leakage of dust particles back into the air. Reviewers were very impressed with the level of filtration provided by the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B bagless canister vacuum cleaner.
Clean thick and thin carpet, hard wood floors, and curtains too! The cleaning versatility of the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum is great thanks to variable suction control, 3 carpet height settings on the power brush and the large bare floor brush. These features make it possible to deep clean thick pile carpet, gently clean small rugs and curtains, as well as safely clean hard wood or highly polished bare floors.
Maneuvers great on a variety of floor types and adjust to accommodate the user. Reviewers praised the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner for being lightweight and pulling along smoothly as they move throughout the house, across both carpets and bare floors. Additionally, they appreciated that the hose swivels at both points of attachment which prevented tangling and kinking as they moved around. The telescopic wand also adjusts easily to fit both short and tall users.
Easy to carry up stairs. Reviewers who had multi-level homes really liked the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner’s large carry handle, saying it was easy to grip and felt strong and durable. They were confident in the handles functionality and pleased that it made the vacuum easier to tote around the house.
Quick-release buttons for easy assembly and quick tool changes. Reviewers found it very easy to remove the power brush using the step-on quick release button. The wand and hose are also easy to detach with minimal effort and the bare floor brush and accessories tools easily slide on to the end of the wand or handle.
Large floor brushes designed for quick cleaning. Reviewers liked the power brush and its 13-inch cleaning path, edge to edge cleaning, foot-pedal for quick carpet-height adjustment, and finger tip brush roll control for seamless transitions from carpet to bare floor. Reviewers were also impressed by the large 14-inch bare floor brush with its natural bristles that gently sweep and clean hard floors. The large floor tools allowed reviewers to get their cleaning done quicker than normal.
Durable construction and design. Reviewers had high confidence in the durability of the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner and were pleased with its construction. Some reviewers were confused at first by the slow start motor which made them think it wasn’t turning on, but once they understood this feature and its purpose they were happy to think the motor was being protected and would last longer.
Long power cord and auto-rewind. Reviewers commented that the 21-foot power cord pulled out of the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner very smoothly and they liked that the large auto-rewind button could be operated with their foot to quickly re-coil the cord.
Improved Warranty. Reviewers were happy to learn Electrolux increased their warranty on the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300 vacuum cleaner to 5 years; a nice improvement over the 2 year warranty that came with the Electrolux TwinClean bagless vacuum cleaners.
Value priced and budget-friendly to own. The Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner is very reasonably priced ($100 less than the discontinued Electrolux TwinClean bagless canister vacuum) and its bagless convenience will save you money. The only filter that needs to be changed regularly is the HEPA filter and if you replace it with a washable HEPA you will only need purchase a new filter every 2 to 3 years. The trade off for minimal replacement parts is you will have to spend a little time cleaning filters every few months.
Noisier than a bagged vacuum. Though reviewers found this vacuum to be quieter than the majority of bagless vacuums they have used, after testing the super quiet Electrolux UltraSilencer DeepClean EL7060 bagged canister vacuum, they couldn’t help but notice the cyclonic system produced extra noise.
Short crevice tool and no onboard storage for the upholstery tool. Reviewers were glad the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300 vacuum cleaner includes 3 accessory tools however they complained the crevice tool is short and unable to reach deep down into narrow spaces. Also, the reviewers questioned why the upholstery tool was not stored onboard with the other 2 tools and thought this to be inconvenient.
Emptying the dust container is not allergy friendly. Though the filtration of the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B bagless canister vacuum cleaner is allergy friendly, emptying the dust container is not. Regardless of the fact you do not have to touch the dirt while emptying, when the bottom of the container pops open and releases the dirt, a dust cloud of particles enter the air and can trigger allergies or asthma. Reviewers highly recommend emptying the dust container outside of the house to avoid spreading dust back into the house, and if you suffer from allergies use a filtering face mask to protect you from breathing in the dust particles.
Our product testers unanimously agree that the Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean EL4300B vacuum cleaner is an affordable, whole-home cleaning solution. It’s compact design makes it easy to carry from room to room or upstairs. Bagless convenience means no extra money spent on replacement bags. The Electrolux UltraActive DeepClean canister vacuum cleaner would be a great choice for small or large homes, and will easily handle all your floor cleaning needs from thick carpets to hard wood floors and delicate accent rugs.
