Common repair problem in a Shark vacuum | Shark repair | Acevacuums

Shark vacuum cleaner
warranty covers defective non-wearable parts and the original unit, at Shark's discretion. Our experience shows that most Shark vacuums need some sort of repair within one year of usage. We find their repair rate to be more in line with machines priced in the $75 to $100 range.

Shark vacuum cleaners can have a number of common repair problems, including:
  • Shark Filters are made of foam, paper, or cloth need to be cleaned regularly to allow air to flow through the system. Shark recommends washing the shark pre motor filter monthly and replacing it annually. Clogged filters can cause overheating, reduced suction, and other issues.
  • For Shark robot vacuums, you can try checking the power source and charging dock, cleaning the charging contacts, and resetting the robot.
  • Shark vacuum Switches
    Shark Vacuum cleaner switches can fail and need to be replaced to avoid power issues.
  • Check the shark brush roll for obstructions like hair or debris. If the vacuum is still making noise, the motor or belt may be damaged and need to be repaired or replaced. A burnt shark brush roller can also cause a loud or grinding noise.
  • The lower hose at the bottom of the machine can crack and create a suction leak.
