Shark navigator vacuum

I used the small motorised head and now I can't remove it from the handle. It has jammed and I don't want to force it in case I break something. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: where is the reset button on shark navigator.

I'm not sure it has one. Check the owner's manual though.
Try this. Turn off vacuum. Unplug it. Make sure there are no clogs in main hose, power head intake tube, or intake inside tank. Plug it in, turn it on, and let us know what happens.

    SOURCE: I have a shark navigator

    I found the issue, the square hole in the side is an emergency air release if the suction is not reaching the dust collector. The cylinder filter screen inside the the top of the dust collector had a thick layer of dust which wasn't allowing airflow to the dust collector, hence the air was escaping through the square hole on the side. I cleaned the screen and it worked as if it came right out of the box.

    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.

    I think I may have a plugged hose. How do I take the handle off from the head to get to the hose?

    Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

    Your Shark Navigator Freestyle Cordless unit has a flexible air hose located on the floor base of your unit, which allows the air flow and picked up dust to travel from the floor through to the canister.

    Accumulated hair strands and debris may cause this hose to be clogged, the dustcup inlet to be blocked or the brushroll to not run properly. Start with turning off your vacuum. Press the release button on the back of your unit's main body and remove the motorized brush. To reach and clear the air hose, flip back the connector to straighten the air passage and remove all debris or blockage found.

    Wand jammed in shark vacuum after being placed backwards in the machine

    Lubricate the wand near where it's stuck with a small amount of soap and water solution...small enough not to go any place it shouldn't. Then just wiggle it back and forth until it becomes free.

    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.
