I just discovered that if you remove the dust cup, lay the vaccum back, reach up inside above the dust cup area, there is a yellow piece that can be removed (twist it and it comes out.) I found that there were GOBS of lint and pet hair stuck inside there. We removed all of that and the vacuum works great again!

Disconnect the hose from the base and turn it on see.if you have suction which i'm sure you will clean all the filters there are three.one above the dirt cup,one up inside above the dirt cup and one below the dirt cup that says hepa the door swings open.blow through the hose and see if its clogged.on the base where you disconnected the hose see if there is anything in there.if there is you can bend the tip of a coat hanger til the tip is round and work it down into the tube where the hose connects.if theres anything in there you should be able to push it out through the bottom with the hanger clean filters after every coule of uses

Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?


Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

I think that I accidentally sucked up a child's


if you have a shop vac you can try blowing it out. for some reason this works better. You also might try a coat hanger with a U bend at the end.

Ridgid shop vac is not sucking


Check the intake hose for a blockage. Attach the hose to the exhaust outlet and turn the vacuum on. If no extracted air is blowing out of it the hose is totally clogged up

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.
