Having problems with your Shark Navigator Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?

\015 I have Shark Vacuum that works great some days and not at all on others. The usual suspect is hair(which is easy enough to cut out), but is not always the cause.Usually one of 2 issues arises: (1) The rotating brush does not rotate (2) The vacuum does not pick anything up, just blows things around.When I tilt the handle back the brush is supposed to rotate and a green light turns on. Sometimes the light will not turn on or will turn red if the brush won't spin. Usually this issue happens on carpet. A few days later I might turn it on to the same issue, or to a fully functional vacuum.Yesterday, my problem was No. 2, it stopped picking up items (on tile, worked OK on carpet). Items simply blew around on the floor. I tried disconnecting the hose to suck them up, but it didn't have enough suction to collect the items.I don't want to invest in a new vacuum because I know this one is great when it works, but I need to master it when it doesn't.What might be causing the issues and how can I resolve them?\015

Answers :

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.
\015\012The 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

I have a panasonic mc-ul975 vacuum that works great when working properly. the airflow through the canister seems to stops once the aero blast technology is done running which causes the vacuum to not function as it should (does not have as much suction and the hose/tool accessories do not work at all). if air is continually running through the canister everything seems fine. please help!

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

The bottom bar that encases the brush is flush to the floor when using the vacuum. This causes the suction to "stick" the vacuum to the floor (lamenate) and also as there is no ground clearance debris is just pushed around. We have to nearly stand the thing upright to get the ground clearance to be enough for things to start being sucked up. I have taken apart, re-assembled etc and nothing is working.
