Possible Causes to Why is Your Shark vacuum not Sucking

Many possible causes could explain why your Shark vacuum is not working. You will have to do a thorough inspection of the vacuum cleaner to establish the real cause of the loss of suction.

  1. Cleaning head dirt and height issues

The first component you should inspect is the cleaning head which is always prone to many problems. The clogging of the brush bar with pet hair or clump could be the culprit causing the loss of suction power. The wrong height of the cleaning head could also be the problem.

  1. Dirty filters

Another possible cause of the loss of suction on your Shark vacuum cleaner is clogged filters. It means that failing to clean the filters for a very long time could deny your Shark vacuum cleaner the suction power it deserves. Residue and dirt accumulation on the filters could block the airway and cause the vacuum to choke up.

  1. Clogged suction hose

If too much debris lodges into the suction hose, it will block the proper airflow and cause a suction problem.

  1. Overfilled Dust bags

However tempting it might be, filling the dust cup beyond the required mark could cause suction loss.
