SOURCE: washing cloth bag

According to the FAQ's on Shark's web site on your model, they state: "The cloth filter can be washed as well and must be completely dry before using again. We recommend 24 hours to air dry as well."

The next thing that you need to do is replace the belt. Even if it's not cracked or worn, many times it's too loose, and it won't turn to rotor efficiently.

Believe it or not, just replacing the belt may be all that you need to do!

The filter if its dirty in gives bad smell.Also if it gets worn out or very old it gives bad smell.Many other users too have noticed this bad smell.Replacing the filter helped many other users too. The worst part being smell of the filter once it goes bad it stays bad and fills the room with a nasty rotten smell. ----------- Also you try cleaning the filters.As you mentioned in your question that you have already tried this but try to clean the filter as per the instructions mentioned in the service manual.And see if that reduces the bad smell. The manual specifically states not to use a mild cleaning agent while washing the filters, you may wash the filters in cold or warm water using a scented mild detergent, and make sure to remove any excess water in the filters since this is what normally creates the horrible smelling odor after it has been washed and dried.Also let the filter get completely dried up before you refit the filter again.If its fitted wet the bad odor smell comes.You can use hairdryer to dry the filter quickly.Check out if this is helping.Thanks.Helpmech.

Shark navigator lift away turns on but no suction


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

It seems that there may be something blocking the airway. To fix this, please make sure to unplugged the unit from the power before performing this.

There are two places where you can check for a blockage: the dust cup air duct and the intake opening behind the brush roll. To check for a blockage in the dust cup air duct stand the vacuum upright and remove the dust cup. Now you can disconnect the super stretch hose and check for clogs in the air duct behind the dust cup. If that is not the case, to check for a clog near the roller brush lay the vacuum down. Next check the opening behind the brush roll for clogs. If there is debris, clean the opening with scissors, carefully cutting away any debris.

If the dust cup is too full, there is no space for the dirt to go when you are vacuuming. To fix this, remove the dust cup and empty the it. If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt after emptying the dust cup, keep reading for other options to fix the suction.

If both your foam filter and felt filter have not been cleaned in the past month, this may be why your vacuum has lost suction. To clean the foam and felt filters, remove the dust cup and pull out the two filters that are on the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters with lukewarm water until the water is running clear. Let the filters dry fully before putting them back into the vacuum. If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt, you may need to replace it.

If none of the other solutions worked, your motor may be bad. You would need to check with Shark about this.

If your need to replace your Shark parts such as filter, belts or hose, you can also order replacement parts directly to us. You can check our online store in this link: http://www.thinkcrucial.com/search?type=product&q=shark

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!

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

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.
