Question about Euro-Pro NV22 Shark Navigator Bagless Upright Vacuum
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.

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.
