The gasket sounds like one between the motor housing and a detachable dirt cup. You didn't include a model number so it's hard to get into specifics, but if it is this gasket I'm speaking to - suction power will suffer and or dirt / dust will leak out. If a different gasket - it may not be noticeable to you that anything is wrong - but gaskets are usually critical components that are used to fill gaps that might otherwise allow dirt, water, dust etc. into spaces where it shouldn't.

    Without being able to see the gasket - it's hard to suggest places it would be installed. I would check around removeable parts that need tight fitting parts to maintain suction - such as edges / recesses of the dirt bin. Have a look at the manual (linked below), too. If all fails, you could contact Shark at 800 798 7398

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!

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.

Why does navigator freestyle shark vacuum light blink even after charged?

I have had 2 Shark Cordless Freestyle vacuums. The first one, when it was fully charged, the blue light would glow softly. The newest one has a flashing blue light that you can see from outer space. Light is supposed to keep flashing even when it is fully charged. Very annoyed that they changed this feature.
