There is a screw or something lodged in the brush roller of my shark navigator lift-away. To remove it, I need to take off the bottom plate, but one screw seems to be stripped. How can I remove it?

SOURCE: I can't get the bottom plate off my Shark

Is it a cross head screw? Try a small flat head screwdriver across part of the cross - see if you can very slightly tighten it!! Sounds daft but it often helps release the screw so that you can unscrew it. You can get a wide variety of little screwdriver heads - get a little set of them - find the best bit - tighten ever so slightly and then try to unscrew.
If you have a car garage (service station) nearby, you could try popping over and pleading for a tiny bit of help - garage guys never like to be beaten by one little screw - they'll get it out. A little tip for their trouble is always appreciated.
If all else fails - put the other screws back in and take it to be serviced - better that a dea cleaner.
Good luck.

Roll brush on the shark navigator lift awat


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is effecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

How do I replace belt


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

To change the belt of your Shark vacuum, you will need a flat head or a philips screw driver and a pair of scissors or a knife to clean your roller brush.
First, make sure to switch off your vacuum and is unplug from the power. In an upright position (vacuum), remove, empty and clean the dust cup. After cleaning the dust cup, lay down the vacuum horizontally on the floor to access the brush roller unit.
Using the appropriate screewdriver, flathead or philips (which will depend on the model of your vacuum), unscrew that holds the roller cover in place. When you lift the cover of the roller up and if it doesn't lift easily, don't force it because it probably means that you have missed one of the retaining screws. After you removed the cover, you will be able to see the roller assembly and the belt that drives it. If the belt has become worn, lost some teeth, or it has broken completely, you will need to remove the roller itself to be able to replace the belt. Clasp the end of the roller that is farthest from the belt between your fingers and lift it out of its holder. It should lift out very easily. You will then be able to lift out the other side of the roller that is attached to the belt and slip the belt on it. The other end of the belt, if it has not broken completely, will be attached to the motor shaft. That too can now be slipped off the end of the shaft.
With the roller bursh having been removed from the motorised head, I suggest you clean it. You may use a pair of scissors or knife to cut/remove the hair that are stuck. Be careful that you don't cut the bristles of the brush. Also, remove any debris that has found its way inside the roller cover at this point by using a wet towel or tissue.
To replace the belt, slide the new belt around the drive shaft of the vacuum cleaner and onto the seat. Then, replace the belt end of the roller, sliding the belt around the roller inside the plastic guides that are there to stop the belt slipping. Clip the far side of the roller back into the slots provided for it and adjust the belt as necessary to make sure that it is sitting squarely on the roller and the drive shaft and then check that the belt is tensioned properly.
Now, all you need to do is to replace the brush roller cover and tighten it down with the screws that you removed earlier. When you tighten the screws, they should be firmly screwed on, but don't overtighten the screws or you could crack the plastic casing. You can then reconnect the shark vacuum to the power supply and check that everything is working properly.
We have based this guide on the manufacturer's own guidelines, so you should have no problem with your Shark vacuum if you follow these steps.

How do I change the belt on my Shark Liftaway


I have the Shark Professional Life-away. Maybe the same, or similar to yours. If its the same, there are 8 screws that hold everything together.

You probably found the two under the small rubber rollers located at the front bottom cover. There is one more hidden ***** under the "Hose Access" cover. Just pinch the two clips together (you may have to work these clips a bit to open the door) and you will see the last ***** inside.

The top cover should then lift off without a problem, just unplug the LED light cable (remembering its orientation) and you can get to the cover for the beater brush. Hope this helps!

Shark navigator making strange noise. Still have suction, doesn't make noise when beater bar not moving. What could be the problem?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark Navigator vacuum is only making a strange noise when the brush roll is turning then the two things to consider and examine would be the brush roll itself as well as the belt.

First off lets look at the brush roll itself. Right off the bat is there any noticeable debris caught in it? You're mainly looking for long carpet fibers, or even strands of hair? If so try using a scissor to cut the blockage away. Then, manually rotate the brush roll to uncover further clogs. When examining your brush roll take note of the condition of the bristles. Are they loose? If so this would be a good time to change your brush roll entirely. There should be two screws holding the plate onto your Shark Navigator. Use a screw driver to remove these screws to gain access to the brush roll and belt.

The second part to check would be your Shark Navigator's belt. With use the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. So if your belt feels loose as well replace that. A general rule would be that you're going to want to replace your belt about every 6 months. And if your belt is really loose this could be causing a noise when your brush roll is active.

I cannot remove the roller brush for shark vacuum


Remove the rubber "bumper" material from the outer edge. Small slits are exposed where the roller is attached to the rest of the vacuum. u can figure the rest out. I wedged my finger in between the roller edge and lower plate. Use whatever you want. Hope that helps.

I cannot remove the brush roller on the Shark Navigator Lift-Away. It has thread caught in it that cannot be removed without actual removing the brush roller.


Hi, it's Ambrai from Crucial Vacuum.

Your Shark NV22 has small wheels underneath the head of the vacuum that need to be popped out. The wheels hide screws that need to be taken out along with the three other visible screws. Using a flat and sturdy object, pry out the wheels. After unscrewing all of the screws, you will be able remove the cover and access your brush roller.

While you're repairing your Shark NV22, why not replace your hose and/or filters? For optimal performance, it is recommended that you change your filter every three to six months.
