Question:1. what is the difference between the el4040a and el4040az?
2. Why does it seem that the bags for the EL4040A seem hard to find?
3. Do some of the other S bags fit the 4040A?
I was thinking of purchasing this vac but if the bags are hard to find then I may need to decide on a different model.
Answer:1. The A and AZ are just a slight color difference. 2-3 The bags are super easy to find, you can use any Electrolux style S bags they are sold on our site and each have a different function. If you have more questions please call 866-972-8227 and ask for Raymond and I can further assist you.
Question:Hi, What do you mean by washable bags? How do you wash them and how often? and how many times can you wash them before replacing them?
Answer:There are washable filters, not bags. The bags fill up with dirt and then you can throw them away. The washable filters if tended too properly can last 1-2 years. If you have any additional questions or would like to purchase call 866-972-8227 and ask for Raymond.
