Getting Started

Along with your upright unit, you will find the following components:
a Vacuum Body
b Motorized Floor Brush
c Handle Assembly
d Super Stretch Hose
e Cleaning Wand
f Pet Hair Power Brush
g Cleaning Attachments
h 24” Crevice Tool

Your Shark® Navigator Upright is easy to assemble:
1 Lay your vacuum body on a level surface.
2 Slide the electrical connection from the motorized flfloor brush into the main body to click into place.
3 Connect the hose from the main body to the motorized flfloor brush; push with a slight turning motion to create a snug fit.

4 Slide the handle assembly into the upright unit aligning the hose hook on the handle assembly with the power cord hooks on the back of the unit.
5 Secure the handle assembly in place with included nut/bolt (shipped attached to handle assembly).
6 Place the vacuum in the upright position.
7 Store the Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush and Cleaning Wand on the unit.

8 Attach the Super Stretch Hose:
a) Snap hose into swivel connector
b) Route under anti-tip hook
c) Route over upper hose holder
d) Press securely onto cleaning wand

IMPORTANT:
To prevent vacuum from tipping, secure hose under the anti-tip hose hook.

9 When storing your vacuum, wind cord around the two cord holders and secure with cord clip:
• Quick Cord release at the top of the unit – place in the upright position.
• Second holder near the base – turn until it is pointing down.
To release the cord, turn the Quick Cord release to the left or right.

IMPORTANT:
For suction to reach the Motorized Floor Brush, the Cleaning Wand and Super Stretch Hose must be attached securely on the vacuum body.

10 To carry the vacuum:
With the unit in the standing position, lift by the Dust Cup Assembly Handle (carry handle).

CAUTION: When lifting or carrying, DO NOT press Dust Cup Assembly release button.

Using the Vacuum

Your Shark® Navigator Upright Vacuum is a versatile tool that can be used to clean bare flfloor surfaces or carpets – with the click of a switch.
Stand the vacuum into the upright position.
Plug in the vacuum.
1 Start with the Power Switch in the “O Off” position.
2 Place your foot on the motorized flfloor brush and pull handle towards you.
3 Set the Power Switch to desired cleaning setting.

4 When cleaning bare floors:
Select the “I On” position for suction only cleaning to avoid scattering dirt while cleaning.

When cleaning carpets:
Ensure you have pulled the handle towards you and select the “II Brush Roll On” position to agitate the carpet fibers for deeper cleaning performance.

5 Due to the huge suction power of this vacuum, it may become necessary to adjust the suction release on the hose. If the vacuum is difficult to push or pull or if it is lifting up area rugs, adjust the suction release by opening or closing the valve at the top end of the hose.

IMPORTANT:
To protect your carpets, the Brush Roll will only turn on when you have pulled the handle back towards you and released the Motorized Floor Brush.

IMPORTANT:
Your Brush Roll Indicator Light will illuminate solid green when brush roll is on, or solid red if there is a blockage. This feature is designed to protect your Lifetime Belt that powers your Brush Roll. See Checking for Blockages on page 11.

NOTE: The height of your Motorized Floor Brush has been optimized for easy pushing and superior cleaning on all flfloor types, so there is no need to make any height adjustments as you transition to different flfloor & carpet types.

Cleaning with the Vacuum Accessories

Before cleaning with your accessories:
Stand vacuum into upright position.
Secure Super Stretch Hose in the anti-tip hose hook to prevent tipping.
Select the “I On” position for suction only cleaning.
DO NOT pull vacuum cleaner around by the hose.
DO NOT overextend the hose.

Vacuum Accessories
Your vacuum comes with a Super Stretch Hose and Cleaning Wand. Use one or the other to attach your cleaning accessories.
1 Using the Super Stretch Hose:

Emptying the Dust Cup Assembly
For best results empty the Dust Cup Assembly after each use; empty several times during prolonged usage.
Or empty the Dust Cup Assembly when it reaches the MAX fill line; NEVER OVER-FILL THE DUST CUP.
Stand vacuum into upright position.
Turn vacuum off.

CAUTION:
Unplug the vacuum; failure to do so might result in electric shock.

For proper care, consult the table to the right for the maintenance schedule of your Cyclonic Chamber and Filters.
Lock vacuum into upright position.
Turn vacuum off.
Remove Dust Cup Assembly.

To empty the Dust Cup Assembly:
1 Grip carry handle and press the Dust Cup release button to remove Dust Cup Assembly
2 Option A: for Quick Empty:
Insert Dust Cup Assembly deep inside trash receptacle to contain dust and debris.

Press the Dust Cup Door release button; tap container gently to dislodge and release dust and debris.

Snap door in place.
Important: If the Dust Cup Door does not swing open after pressing the release button, push the door open using the bottom door tabs.

3 Option B: For Allergy Sufferers:
Wrap a trash bag around the Dust Cup Assembly leaving space at the bottom for the door to swing open.

Locate the Dust Cup Door release button within the trash bag and press to release as you shake the dust cup to empty dust and debris.
Snap the bottom door in place.

Note: Option B can also be performed outside of the home to further minimize releasing dust back into the air. Carry just the Dust Cup Assembly and trash bag outside.

Note: Some dust and debris may remain in the top of your dust cup assembly on or near the metal screen. It is not
necessary to completely remove this material before continuing to vacuum; Shark® advanced cyclonic action will sweep the metal screen clean once you begin to refill your dust cup.

Proper Care of Your Shark® Upright Vacuum

DO NOT operate the vacuum without ALL the filters in place.
DO NOT operate the vacuum with WET filters.

IMPORTANT: Loss of Suction may occur if foam filters are not cleaned every month. Rinse and allow to air dry completely. Tap loose dirt from foam filters as needed in between washing. Foam filters may appear dirty after use – this is normal.

To clean the pre-motor filters:
1. Remove the dust cup.
2. Pull the filter frame with the pre-motor filters out from the top of the motor base.
3. Remove the filters from the filter frame and tap the loose dirt from the foam filters in between washing as needed.
4. Rinse the filters thoroughly in lukewarm water until the water runs clear. DO NOT put the filters in the washing machine or dishwasher.

NOTE: The material in the filters will discolor over time. This is NORMAL and will not affect the performance of the filters.
5. Squeeze out excess water and let air-dry for at least 24 hours before replacing. Do not use a hair dryer or other heating methods to dry.
6. Place the felt filter in first, then the foam filter.
7. Replace the dust cup.

To clean the post-motor filter:
1 Remove the filter cover from the front of the vacuum by pulling up on the tab and pulling the cover away from the vacuum.
2 Take out the filter by pulling it straight out.
3 Turn the filter over so that the dirty side is on the bottom and vigorously tap it clean against a garbage can to remove any dust.
4 Wash the filter under the tap using lukewarm water with the dirty side face down until the water runs clear. DO NOT put the filter in the washing machine or dishwasher.

NOTE: The material in the filter will discolor over time. This is NORMAL and will not affect the performance of the filter.
5. Allow the filter to air dry for 24 hours. Do not use a hair dryer or other heating methods to dry.
6. Once the filter is dry, replace it back into the vacuum.
7. Replace the cover by inserting the two tabs into the holes at the bottom and then swinging the cover up until it clicks into place.

Troubleshooting
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, the power cord must be disconnected before performing maintenance/troubleshooting checks.

1. Vacuum is not picking up dirt:
Check filters to see if they need cleaning. Follow instructions for rinsing and drying the filters before re-inserting back into the vacuum. (See “Maintenance” sections for instructions.)
Dust cup may be full; empty dust cup.
Check hose and hose connections for blockages; clear blockages if required.
If dust cup is empty, and attachment inlets are clear, check for other blockages. (See “Checking for Blockages” for instructions.)

2. Vacuum lifts scatter rugs (lightweight, movable rugs).
Suction is powerful. Take care when vacuuming scatter-type rugs or rugs with delicately sewn edges. Open the suction release on the hose to decrease suction power.

3.Airflow is restricted. No suction or light suction.
Check filters to see if they need cleaning. Follow instructions for rinsing and drying the filters before re-inserting back into the vacuum. (See “Maintenance” sections for instructions.)
Dust cup may be full; empty dust cup.
Check hose, hose connections, nozzles and accessories for blockages; clear blockages if required.
Close the suction release on the hose to increase suction power.
If dust cup is empty, and attachment inlets are clear, check for other blockages. (See “Checking for Blockages” for instructions.)

4. Motorized floor brush has become jammed or has shut off.
Immediately turn off and unplug vacuum, disconnect the nozzle and remove blockage before reconnecting and turning vacuum back on. (See “Checking for Blockages” for instructions.)

5. Vacuum turns off on its own.
This vacuum cleaner is equipped with a motor protective thermostat. If for some reason your vacuum overheats, the thermostat will automatically turn the unit off. Should this occur, perform the following steps to restart the motor thermostat:
1. Move the On/Off switch to the “O” (Off) position.
2. Unplug the vacuum.
3. Empty the dust cup and clean filters. (See “Maintenance” sections for instructions.)
4. Check for blockages in hose, accessories and inlet openings. (See “Checking for Blockages” for instructions.)
5. Allow the unit to cool for a minimum of 45 minutes.
6. Plug in the vacuum.
7. Turn the On/Off switch to the “I” (On) position to restart the vacuum.
Note: If vacuum still does not start, contact Customer Service at:
1-800-798-7398.

Checking for Blockages
Blockages may cause your vacuum to overheat and shut down. If so, clear the blockages, then follow the instructions for Resetting the
Motor Thermostat on page 12.
WARNING: Never insert sharp objects into any opening to clear an obstruction.
IMPORTANT: Damages caused while clearing or attempting to clear blockages are not covered under your product’s limited warranty.
Unplug the vacuum before checking for blockages.

Reassemble all parts securely before operating vacuum.
