The Einhell wet and dry vacuum cleaner TE-VC 2230, only scored satisfactory in our test. Although it makes a high-quality impression, the suction result is not convincing. Dirt and liquids are pushed back and forth and the vacuum cleaner is loud and makes an unpleasant beeping sound.
Equipment and function
The Einhell wet and dry vacuum cleaner TE-VC 2230 is supplied with floor nozzle and crevice nozzle. A suction adapter and a bristle nozzle are also included. The vacuum cleaner is suitable for sucking up dry and wet dirt and liquids. A blowing function is also available. The scope of delivery also includes an extendable suction tube, a curved suction tube, a filter and a filter bag. The operating instructions are written in detail, well explained and illustrated with pictures.
The vacuum cleaner also contains a socket to which an additional electrical appliance can be connected during the suction process.
The mains cable is 5 m long.
In the first step, wheels and handle must be installed on the vacuum cleaner, this is described step by step with text and picture in the operating instructions. Depending on which function of the vacuum cleaner you want to use, you will have to take different arrangements. For the suction function, the hose must be attached to the opening at the front. For the blow function, it must be attached to the opening on the back of the vacuum cleaner. All other parts and attachments can easily be put together.
The vacuum cleaner can be switched on by a switch on the front. If this switch is set to "0", the device is switched off. For simple vacuuming, turn the switch to the left to "I". For vacuuming with an additional electrical appliance connected, switch to "AUTO". The suction power cannot be adjusted on this device.
The folded filter must be used for dry vacuuming. You can slide it inside the lid onto the filter basket. You can also use an additional container bag inside the vacuum cleaner for dry vacuuming.
We vacuumed animal litter, once on laminate flooring and once on carpet flooring. The vacuum cleaner pushes the dirt strongly back and forth on both surfaces. Therefore the nozzle has to be lifted again and again to remove the dirt. On carpet it is almost impossible to suck away even the smallest, stubborn dirt particles, the suction power of the vacuum cleaner does not seem to be sufficient. Also the enclosed cushion nozzle, which according to the instructions is suitable extra for the removal of dirt particles on carpets, did not improve the result. On the contrary, in order to clean the carpet almost flawlessly, I finally vacuumed the carpet once more with the floor nozzle in the test.
The foam filter must be used for wet vacuuming and the folded filter must be removed! You can also push the foam filter onto the filter basket. In addition, no container bag may be used for wet vacuuming.
In our test, we sucked up a puddle of 5 litres of water. In parts of the water puddle, we have also spread animal litter.
The vacuum cleaner pushed both the water and the wet animal litter back and forth more than it sucked up. The nozzle of the vacuum cleaner had to be lifted again and again to suck up liquid and litter. With this product, vacuuming took the longest time.
The vacuum cleaner has a volume of 82 dB. In our test it is the loudest vacuum cleaner. It also makes a very unpleasant, high-pitched sound.
When used for a continuous period of 10 minutes, the vacuum cleaner consumes 0.213 kWh.
The cleaning must be done by hand. Liquids can drain through the drain plug of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the lid and wipe out the inside of the container and lid. Also remove the flat-fold filter and rinse under running water. Do not reassemble all the individual parts of the vacuum cleaner until they have dried thoroughly.
The filter bags must be replaced regularly as they cannot be reused.
