My Shark Navigator does not have any suction. The roller brush works. What should I do?

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.

On/off switch

Try a flathead screwdriver or if it doesn't have separable pieces you could gently smash it apart to get to the switch and then use hotglue to put it together later.

It lost suction. How can I fix it?

Are all your filters clean? Start with end of hose and go backward. Hose, small dowel. Make sure clean. Then, next section motor or hose. Keep going.

I had to take apart my shark navigator vaccuum cleaner and clean it. I need a diagram to see where to put everything back, mainly the magnets.

The two long magnets (maybe about 2" and tapered across one long side) go in the housing in front of the brush. One fits on the right, the other on the left. The tapered ends point up. When you put the top cover back on, it will enclose the magnets completely. Took me 45 minutes to figure that out after realizing one magnet was still in place. Sheesh. Lol

Lost all suction? what happened?

Give it a good cleaning, the hose or vents could be blocked up. Make sure you check the air filter (intake vent) if this is blocked it will stop a vacuum cold.

What I tried and it worked for me is to losen the hose slightly from where it connects to the long plastic tube on the side to allow the little hole to show. What that does is to lessen the suction power a little since the problem is that the suction is too powerful on the carpet and the roller freezes.
