Yesterday, I got a pack of LED Bulbs to replace a burnt out bulb in my Preferred. Since I had 20 of them, I decided to upgrade all my Maytag Hoovers to the LEDs and they look pretty cool.

Also, is it just me or that the Original Bulbs used with these become more Orange as they age?

Incandescent bulbs in general are a little more yellow than flourescent or LED. I upgraded various power nozzles of mine to LED a little while back. Here are some photos of old versus new LED.

With the LED Bulbs, they also look more like the Images used on the old Hoover.xom.

RoyalFan103, I agree!

Great job posting a photo of that gorgeous PowerMax Delux S3606 canister. That was a hot color scheme!

I've never used an LED bulb in a vacuum cleaner that wasn't intended to have onem but I do like them. They offer a lot of flexibility in terms of tint. Some are warmer and others are cooler. It's an entirely different appliance, but a few years ago, a repair technician was replacing the control board (aka self-destruct system) in my Maytag refrigerator and pointed out that heat from the original incandescent bulbs had damaged the 'ceiling' of the fridge, so I replaced them with LED's and got the coolest tint I could find. Not only do they emit considerably less heat, they brighten up the interior considerably, eliminating the worst of the shadows cast by the incandescent ones. The best part is they came in a three-pack, which was exactly what I needed—two for the fridge and one for the freezer.

In my opinion...

Older vacuums with modern LED lightbulbs look kind of weird. This isn't always the case, but I haven't bothered to make the switch to LEDs for my older machines just yet (mainly cuz I'm too lazy and it's not one of my top priorities).
