Roller on shark navigator professional


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 affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Help on changing belt on shark rocket HV300


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 a Shark Rocket


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Always unplug your vacuum from the power source before performing this. Use a Philips or a crewdriver - to open the screws keeping the roller covered. The screws are located in different places depending on models but they are easy to spot. Hold the roller ending and remove it from the holder. Hold the roller at the end furthest from the belt. When that end is free, repeat with the other roller endings. Slide the belt off the roller and, after that, off the motor shaft. Clean throughout the brush roll with a hairbrush, a pair of scissors and a pair of pliers (if necessary) to get rid of all hair and debris. Be careful or you could cut the bristles. Slide the belt over the motor shaft then over the roller and finally over the seat. Hold the roller at the two ends and separate it from the motor shaft making sure that the tension at the two ends is equal. Partially attach the end furthest from the belt then tightly pull the other end and partially attach it to its holder. When the two ends are in place, push them in. Reassemble the brush roll cover and protect it, using the screws you've just removed. Place the vacuum machine upright, connect it to the electricity outlet and check the roller.

How do I remove old Brush roller part from Shark Navigator NV22L


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.

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!

Shark V15Z how to change the belt


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 you're ready to go. Now if Shark will only help customer locate a replacement belt you may find this info useful...
