Shark Navigator lift-away canister makes a loud whistling noise

The unit is less than three months old. It started making this whistling/screaming noise a couple of weeks ago. the noise is coming from the small hole on the side of the lift-away canister. I've taken the vac apart and cleaned all hoses, the filters, and the bin. I also cleaned the hair off the roller. Thus far, nothing has solved the problem, and I'm having problems finding help online. Any ideas?

Shark nv350 making loud noise when switched for carpet


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark NV350 vacuum is making loud noises when switched to carpet then there are a few parts of your vacuum you can check to resolve the problem.

First thing let's check your vacuums canister. The idea is to prevent clogs and anything that will obstruct your vacuum from operating properly, and running smoothly without noise. You'll want to empty your canister after every use.

Secondly, let's check out your brush roll. Is there hair wrapped around the roll itself, or any noticeable debris that would prevent the brush roll from turning? If so remove it and manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

While you're examining your vacuums brush roll take a look at the belt as well. If the belt isn't wrapped around the brush roll properly this could be causing the noise. The belt should have a good bit of tension on it in order for the brush roll to turn properly. Your vacuums belt should be replaced roughly every 3 months. So be sure it's on properly and has a good bit of tension.

I cleaned the filter and emptied out the canister from the bottom and now the dirt comes out on my filter and not in the canister?


The first place the "dirty" air enters is the top chamber of the canister where it traps the bigger stuff.

The canister has two clean-out doors so make sure you open them both (top and bottom) or you could have problems.

Nice thing about the Shark as it has a number of clean-out points starting at the base of the hose where it enters the bottom of the vac. to the beater brush (on the bottom of just behind the brush assembly). Good luck!

My Shark vacuum is making a weird noise how to fix it


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum is making a loud noise while it's on then there's definitely a clog somewhere. Here' s a few places you should check prior to plugging in the vacuum and turning it on.

The first place to check would be the brush roll and belt. If you notice visible debris, like strands of hairs, or long carpet fibers this could be catching on the brush roll and causing it not to turn fully. Be sure to clear this debris from the brush roll and manually spin the brush roll a few times after you do so to help unearth and any other clogs. This may be the reason for the noise and its crucial that this part of your vacuum is clog free.

Another part of your vacuum to check would be your hose. Detach the hose and stretch it out as much as you can to see if any debris or clumps of dust are stuck inside. Using a broom handle can help if you see a clog, but it won't come out after you've stretched out the hose.

Another big factor would be a dirty filter in your vacuum. Most manufacturers recommend you change your filter on average every 3-6 months. However, it is recommended to change your filter even earlier depending on usage and allergy care. The cleaner your filters the less debris will get stuck in your vacuum, causing less clogs and overall less odd noises while vacuuming.

How do I installa new hose to the mortorized brush head on my shark lift waway


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Replacing your Shark Floor Nozzle Hose is very easy. Start by unplugging your unit to avoid any safety hazards. The floor nozzle hose's side that attached to the floor base of your Navigator can easily be pulled away. The other side of the floor nozzle hose has two tabs that can be pushed in while pulling it away from the base.

When installing, connect the floor nozzle hose to the canister first by pressing both side tabs while placing it until it click in its place. Then connect the hose to the floor base.

Shark troubleshooting


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few potential solutions you should try. You can check the hose and canister again to make sure nothing is lodged in them. If that does not work the problem could be related to your filter. Filters should be replaced every 3 to 6 months for optimal performance. You can also try replacing the battery. This should be done every 6 to 12 months.

My Shark navigator is making a very loud swooshing sound out of side of canister.


I had the same noise coming out of the side of the canister although I would specify it as a sucking noise. The noise is coming out of a hole on the side of the canister. If you block the hole it sounds normal. This lead me to believe that there was no damage. After further research I found that this whole is actually a release when air cannot make it through the top of the canister. Simple resolution. Take the canister out of its holster and clean both the top part and the metal cone inside and your vacuum will work good as new :) ~=MaGiC=~
