If your vacuum cleaner isn’t kept clean, it can start to produce an unpleasant smell. Not only is this unsanitary, but it can also hinder the efficiency of the device. Keep your Shark vacuum cleaner in top shape by following these easy steps.

Caring for Your Vacuum Cleaner

To keep your vacuum cleaner clean and performing optimally:

1. Clean the vacuum cleaner on a regular basis. This will help to avoid heavy buildup and problems with suction.

2. Clean the filter on a regular basis to prevent debris from entering the motor.

3. Clean the inner parts of the vacuum cleaner regularly to ensure proper airflow.

4. Clean the vacuum cleaner bag manually if necessary and if your model of vacuum doesn’t have disposable bags.

5. Empty the dustbin regularly to avoid potential buildup.

Cleaning Your Shark Vacuum Cleaner

When you first get your vacuum cleaner, take some time to read the manufacturer’s manual. This will help you understand how to care for your vacuum cleaner and optimize its performance.

Generally, the process for emptying vacuums is similar. To clean your vacuum cleaner:

  • Remove the dustbin and empty it.
  • Attach the hose back onto the vacuum cleaner.
  • Put the dustbin in the cleaning position.
  • To clean filters, remove them by pulling them out of the housing. Wash them in warm, soapy water and dry them before replacing them in their housing.
  • Store your vacuum cleaner in a dry place when not in use.
  • If your vacuum cleaner does not work as well as it used to, check for clogs in the filters, dustbin, hose, and motor before replacing any parts.

How to Care for Your Shark Vacuum Cleaner

When you invest in a good vacuum cleaner, it’s important to take care of it to keep it running smoothly. Follow these basic tips to ensure your vacuum cleaner lasts for years:

  • Store your vacuum cleaner properly. Make sure it’s not stored in a direct sunlight or near a heat source, as this can damage the machine.
  • Clean your vacuum regularly. Remove all the dirt and debris from the inside and outside of the machine. Be sure to unscrew the dustbin to remove all the dirt and debris behind and around it.
  • Clean the vacuum cleaner’s filter every month or after particularly intensive cleaning jobs. This will help prevent dirt and debris from building up in the machine.
  • If your vacuum cleaner starts making strange noises, take it to a service center. Many times, issues can be resolved by having the machine serviced.

Troubleshooting Tips

When your vacuum cleaner starts to experience problems, don’t panic. Follow these simple troubleshooting tips to get your machine back in working order as quickly as possible.

  • If your vacuum cleaner won’t start, try pushing and pulling on the cord in different directions. If it starts working again when in a different position, the cord may be damaged and in need of replacement.
  • If your vacuum cleaner makes strange noises, check to see if the filters need to be replaced.
  • If the dirt is not collecting in the bag, check to see if the hose is properly attached or if the bag is filled with debris.
