Question about Vacuums
Try this procedure for Euro-Pro Shark...
1. Lower handle of vacuum and flip over so that it lies flat on floor upside down.
2. Twist 3 plastic securing latches with large flathead screwdriver or a coin.
3. Remove black plastic roller brush assembly cover.
At this point, you should see the motor shaft it wraps around (it's metal and as big around as a pencil, buried fairly deep in the now exposed well, you'll also see two white plastic wheels that are part of the roller brush. One is an "idle" wheel that spins freely, and the other wheel is part of the roller brush and turning it turns the roller brush.
4. Remove the roller brush assembly by pulling upward on it. You may need to "walk" the brush assembly out one end at a time a little bit at a time.
5. Loop the new belt over the two wheels of the roller brush assembly and replace it back into the vacuum.
6. If you can manage it, stretch the belt over the end of the motor shaft, making sure the belt is running between the two prongs of the belt guide operating by the carpet/bare floors switch.
B.- If successful, perform steps 1-5 in reverse order to reassemble the vacuum. If you cannot stretch it over the motor shaft, you'll have to continue with step 7 to get a better grip and angle on the belt.
C.- Then, continue...
7. Remove two screws next to rear wheels nested deep in screw socket holes.
8. Remove 2 screws at front of corners of vacuum previously hidden by roller brush assembly cover.
9. Remove 2 screws sunk in hole sockets next to flat holes that accommodate the coin screw latches.
10. Remove 1 short screw from slightly behind roller brush in center of top assembly. (It is easily visible and you need not remove the brush assembly again to get it out with a screwdriver.)
11. Remove the 2 screws holding down the metal brackets (1 screw per bracket) that hold down the carpet adjustment wheel assembly.
12. Remove the brackets and the carpet adjustment wheel assembly.
13. Remove carpet height adjustment lever by removing the single screw buried deep in the center of the plastic height adjustment cylinder. (a hollow cylinder with ratcheted teeth spiral gently down into the well.)
14. Turn Vacuum right side up.
15. Remove blue/green top assembly that fits over the start button and "Full" light indicator.
16, Making sure belt is still looped over white plastic wheels of roller brush assembly, pull belt onto motor shaft.
17. Replace top assembly, it snaps into place.
18. Turn vacuum upside down and flat on floor.
19. Make sure belt is running between prongs of guide operated by carpet / bare floors switch.
Perform steps 1-13 in reverse order to reassemble vacuum.
Hope this helps.

There seems to be many people that are looking for parts and accessories for their Shark products. Shark does have a website where they sell parts and accessories for their products.
Whether you are looking for parts for you Steam product, Upright vacuum, Garment care product, or your hand or cordless vacuum, you can find any of the available parts here.
Then at the top right under the search box, hover over the parts and accessories tab.
A drop down menu will appear and you can choose which product you want to see the parts for.
Click on that product and you will then see separate boxes for parts and accessories for all of the products in that category.
Click on the product you have and then you will see a list of parts or a list of accessories available for that product.
There are many parts available for their products, but I would not say that they have available every part that could possibly break.
There no parts that pertain to the heating function, so if your product stops making steam for instance, there are no parts that can help you fix that.
Broken handles are fixable and are there. Replacement heads and replacement head coverings are there as would be expected.
If you are in need of parts to fix a product that is not heating, I would suggest looking for used products on Ebay or something like that. Also advertising for a used product may also get you the parts you need...unless of course they are selling it because of the same problem that you had...make sure to check that out first.
