Question about Euro-Pro Shark EP366 Handheld Vacuum

1 Answer

It just quit

I have a Shark hand hekd vacuum which I use for small jobs and removing hair from our retriever via a collecting tank which collects the hair before going into the vac. However, it was working fine this morning and suddenly quit. There was no signs of overheating. I emptied the dirt chamber which was far from fullo and tried to turn it on and it is dead. Is there an overload swith on this vac? Is there a reset button and where is it? Please let me know before I go and buy another hand held vac.

Having problem with steam not coming out to do floors


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Shark Steam Vac. One solution you can try is to create a solution of approximately 50% water and 50% CLR (calcium, lime, and rust).

Put the solution into the water tank of your vacuum and let it sit for awhile. Over time your vacuum may have developed a build-up of calcium which is blocking the pores that release the steam. This solution should break-down the calcium and allow steam to flow out of the vacuum.

If you do not have CLR on-hand, an alternative found in most kitchens that can be used is vinegar. Again, make a solution of vinegar and water and allow it time to sit in the tank attached to the vacuum. Then try running the machine.

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?


If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

Where to fix float in collection tank


Hey Val, inserting the float is quite easy. Turn the tank so the flat side of the tank is facing you. Where it says, "Fill with Clean Water to here", there is a groove on the inside of the tank just behind the writing. Slide the rattle sounding weighted end of the float vertically into the groove. The float will only fit in one way.

Why does my filter collect so much dog hair and decreases the suction of the machine. I clean and change (alternate) filters everytime I vacumn, that isn't normal, is it? It seems like I have a seal or...


You obviously have a pet and it's good to see your machine is doing it's job. The only reason you could lose suction while collecting pet hair is due to the pet hair being a solid mass and air not been able to flow through the filters.( must be a lot of hair). Suction loss is only when the particles passing through your machine are dense therefore it will reduce suction and airflow . Very common on vacuum cleaners. Do not worry too much . Also check to see if you have Amy cracks in the seal between the drum and the vacuum cleaner itself

Brush roller won.t turn. It turns for a sec. then shuts off. I have cleaned all clogs. This is a shark navigator. Can I remove bottom of vac to access the roller? The manual doesn,t mention this as a...


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance of your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first let's 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 lose 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 vacuum's 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.

My vacuum has no suction and when power is on and I stand it upright it shuts off


soonds to me like you need to check all of the removeable port inlets. Check for debris. what we find quite often, especially with pet owners, is that the collection tank, even after dumping is plugged with fine particulates and or pet hair lodged up high inthe cones. try tapping your dirt cup on the floor not too hard, and then dump the dirt. if you have access to a air compressor, or a canister vac w/ a blower port, blowing the tank out quite often will give good results.

Tank not collecting dirty water


You most likely have a break in your suction hose. check at the base where it attaches. When you bring back the handle release, you can see lt. If you have the type that has the external plug in for the water, then you probably don't have the hose part plugged in to the collection tank. in the front of the collection tank. Your motor shut off? Well, If you have the first variety cleaner w/built in hose, you may have sucked water into/onto your motor. If this is the case you need to bring it for service. otherwise, you could have a blockage in your collection hose, this would also explain the machine shut down, from the thermosat. A clogged machine will ultimately overheat, wont run again till cooled.

Dirt/Collection Tank Bissell Little Green


I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good

Emptying the powerbrush


Gently
press the Quick Release tabs on the Clean/Solution Tank
and slide the tank off of the unit.
Grab the Dirty/Collection Tank and pull to remove.
While at the sink, remove the Tank Cap by turning
approximately 1/4 turn counterclockwise and lift
out the cap.
Empty the tank. Rinse the Dirty/Collection tank with
warm water.
Replace cap and turn approximately 1/4 turn clockwise,
until snug.
Slide the Dirty/Collection Tank into the unit. Replace the
Clean/Solution Tank.

The tabs on the side is what locks the tank on, if they won't release the tank, then you may have to take apart to get it off and replace the tank.
