We have only had our Navigator for 6 months and the bar won't turn. We took the whole beater bar head apart and it was a wiring problem in the beater bar motor.
What a piece of junk this is, very poorly made and has many design flaws.
Looking for something now to take it's place!

First off unplug the unit from the wall as you are messing with an end that has home voltage on it (~120vac)

what you have in some cases is an issue of poor mating contact between the male and female sides of the beater bar assembly. The male is worn or a little small in outside diameter and the female side is worn larger in inside diameter so the 120volt to the motor is not getting to the rotating head or motor assembly.

What I am going to do.... with power disconnected very carefully reduce the inside diameter of the female end and make the contacts grip harder onto the male posts with a pair of visegrips. Ever so slightly pinch each side of the female side and very slowly reassemble it each time until the beater bar turns reliably. If you pinch too hard in the beginning and collapse the female end you will have to replace it... SO GO Slow and reassemble after each pinch sequence and reinsert the beater assembly, plug in and test it. Slowly tighten the vise grips a fraction of a turn and pinch each side until you have reliable contact. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG EACH TIME. Eventually, and with patience it will work!!!!

The spring contacts (fingers) in the female end are probably really thin or substandard metal and are loosing their spring action... maybe also due to localized heating the "metal fingers" are loosing their "springyness" temper and not grabbing any more.

    In reply, I did this in about 30 minutes on my Shark and the beater is now spinning. However, I had to approach it from the male side and increase the outside diameter of the male posts (the ones in the beater bar side) by pinching them and leaving a knurl on the male posts where the vice grip pressed itself into the softer male post. This effecitively increased the outside diameter of the male post maybe .008" but that is all you need. Before you can do this you have to trim down the shoulder guarding those post about 1/4" to expose the posts to the pliers. You will still have a bit of shoulder for dust guarding. THIS WILL OF COURSE INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY. So given that it does not take a genius to do this job.

Had the same problem. The roller brush would only work intermittently. I had to take apart the main housing and clean the two contacts (female side) that connect to the lower brush assembly. Now it works like new.

My shark navigator delux model is nv4226 the brush will not spin it is clean an I thought perhaps the belt was stretched so I replaced it and the brush still doesn't move.how can I fix this


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

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

First things first lets 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 loose 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 vacuums 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.

How do I clean the brush and surrounding area?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

When you are cleaning your brush, you can use scissors or a knife to cut the hair that are stuck. You may need to use your fingers to pull out the hair off and away the roller brush. You may also want to clean the bearings of the brush. Remove any hair or visible debris hat is stuck under the cup by pulling the hairs or brushing them off. Wipe with wet towel or tissue the housing of the brush if you see any dust or debris. Once you clean your brush and it's surrounding, you can put it back. Make sure that the belt is still fairly tight as it should be for optimal use by pulling the belt slightly.

Need instructions on how to replace belt on the power brush accessory on a shark navigator


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

To change the belt of your Shark vacuum, you will need a flat head or a philips screw driver and a pair of scissors or a knife to clean your roller brush.

First, make sure to switch off your vacuum and is unplug from the power. In an upright position (vacuum), remove, empty and clean the dust cup. After cleaning the dust cup, lay down the vacuum horizontally on the floor to access the brush roller unit.

Using the appropriate screewdriver, flathead or philips (which will depend on the model of your vacuum), unscrew that holds the roller cover in place. When you lift the cover of the roller up and if it doesn't lift easily, don't force it because it probably means that you have missed one of the retaining screws. After you removed the cover, you will be able to see the roller assembly and the belt that drives it. If the belt has become worn, lost some teeth, or it has broken completely, you will need to remove the roller itself to be able to replace the belt. Clasp the end of the roller that is farthest from the belt between your fingers and lift it out of its holder. It should lift out very easily. You will then be able to lift out the other side of the roller that is attached to the belt and slip the belt on it. The other end of the belt, if it has not broken completely, will be attached to the motor shaft. That too can now be slipped off the end of the shaft.

With the roller bursh having been removed from the motorised head, I suggest you clean it. You may use a pair of scissors or knife to cut/remove the hair that are stuck. Be careful that you don't cut the bristles of the brush. Also, remove any debris that has found its way inside the roller cover at this point by using a wet towel or tissue.

To replace the belt, slide the new belt around the drive shaft of the vacuum cleaner and onto the seat. Then, replace the belt end of the roller, sliding the belt around the roller inside the plastic guides that are there to stop the belt slipping. Clip the far side of the roller back into the slots provided for it and adjust the belt as necessary to make sure that it is sitting squarely on the roller and the drive shaft and then check that the belt is tensioned properly.

Now, all you need to do is to replace the brush roller cover and tighten it down with the screws that you removed earlier. When you tighten the screws, they should be firmly screwed on, but don't overtighten the screws or you could crack the plastic casing. You can then reconnect the shark vacuum to the power supply and check that everything is working properly.

We have based this guide on the manufacturer's own guidelines, so you should have no problem with your Shark vacuum if you follow these steps.

Roller stops working after just a few seconds


Haven't had this problem, but sounds like an obstruction of some kind. Turn the vacuum upside down and clean any lint, thread or hair around the roller and make sure there is nothing stuck in there that would impede the roller. I have a long haired dog and have to do this regularly.
