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.

Sounds like you broke the brush belt. Easy to replace and most come with a replacement attached somewhere on the vacuum. The light is probably just burned out from the impact

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.

Why is the brush roller on my shark nv440 not working

You most likely broke the belt. If you remove the cover to the brush/beater you will see where the belt goes to replace it.

Shark navigator uv300 roller stops while vacuuming filters are clean and not clogged up

The belt that turns the rotating brush is loose. Make sure it is on correctly or replace with a (new) tighter belt. This will require you to unscrew a few screws on the bottom & remove the cover. Then remove the roller.

Brush doesn't move

Your belt is broken and needs to be replaced. Turn this brush side up. Unscrew the cover plate and you will see where the belt goes. Pull out roller, put on new belt, put back together and there you go.

Shark v1510 How do I replace the belt?

remove the outside sliding cover... remove 2 screw in from of housing, and also the screw holding the wheel on the brush head cap side of the housing. Once screws are rmoved, you can remove brush head cap and belt cover. Pull down on belt cover to remove. It is held by screw crossing the top of the cover from the side. Belts are hard to find, but can be ordered from shark web site (2) for 7.95 and shipping.

I had the same problem. Some one should stock these belts in the states, because Shark outsources thier call center to India, which sucks. It took 20 minutes on the phone to communicate through the noise and language barrier just to order a belt!

The belt broke on my my SHARK Model V15Z and Euro Pro hasn't responded to my request for a new belt w/ directions as how to effect repairs.

Well it's actually not so bad once you realize where they hid the screws. Gently pull outwards on either side of the housing that surrounds the brush and vacuum.There are no screws for this piece it simply snaps off and on. Once this piece is removed you'll see two phillips type screws on the side where the removable hose attaches. Remove the two screws and pull off the molded section they keep in place. The brush will now come off revealing the rotor that the belts slips over. The belt is placed over the rotor and the brush cylinder in a figure eight. Reassemble and your ready to go. Now if Shark will only help customers locate a replacement belt you may find this info useful.....
