Check the cleaning schedule in your vacuum cleaner’s Instruction Booklet for more information on how often to clean and replace your filters. You may also be advised to replace your filter by our online troubleshooting guide, or by a member of the Shark Customer Care team.
Always turn off your vacuum before performing any maintenance. Check your Instruction Booklet to locate your unit’s removable filters and see how to access them. Ensure your filter is fully dried before reinserting into the unit and replacing the filter cover.
It’s important to allow all filters to air-dry for at least 24 hours before reinstalling them to prevent liquid from being drawn into electronic parts.
Vacuum cleaner filters catch tiny dust particles in the exhaust air before it is expelled from your vacuum. If the filters aren’t regularly cleaned, this dust can build up until they get blocked, preventing the air from escaping properly. This can reduce suction power.
We recommend rinsing your vacuum cleaner’s foam and felt filter kit every month and rinsing the washable post-motor filter once a year. However this timeline will vary by product, so please check your instruction booklet for more information.
You can also tap loose dirt off filters between washes as needed.
