    The vacuum head gets clogged and I don't see any place that opens up to clean out the clog. I literally have to try to stick a finger up there to try and pull out the debris and use a long object to try. There must be an easier way where something comes apart.

SOURCE: Vinegar

Do not add anything to the tank.... Vinegar is corrosive and that would potentially be very bad.

You might try sucking the sose out with another vacum from the wrong way. You might be able to remove the hose and push a broom handle or stiff wire through. If you have compressed air available, you could try that, outside.

Im sure you have a clog and if you remove it, you will be back in business.

Shark rotator no suction


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

If the dust cup is too full, there is no space for the dirt to go when you are vacuuming. To fix this, remove the dust cup and empty the it.

If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt after emptying the dust cup, there may be something blocking the airway. There are two places where you can check for a blockage: the dust cup air duct and the intake opening behind the brush roll. To check for a blockage in the dust cup air duct stand the vacuum upright and remove the dust cup. Now you can disconnect the super stretch hose and check for clogs in the air duct behind the dust cup. If that is not the case, to check for a clog near the roller brush lay the vacuum down. Next check the opening behind the brush roll for clogs. If there is debris, clean the opening with scissors, carefully cutting away any debris.

Uncleaned filters may also the reason why your vacuum has lost suction. To clean the foam and felt filters, remove the dust cup and pull out the two filters that are on the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters with lukewarm water until the water is running clear. Let the filters dry fully before putting them back into the vacuum.

If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt, you may need to replace it.
Unfortunately, if none of the other solutions worked, your motor is going bad. Most of the time a new motor costs as much as the vacuum itself and it is not easy to replace the motor. It may be time for a new vacuum.

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

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.

Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate


The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.
