The method in which you’d want to get rid of the dirt and debris you collect on a daily basis is pretty important, so as to make sure you’re getting rid of them for good, not just collecting them into your vacuum.
Mastering How to Empty A Shark Navigator Vacuum is an essential chore to carry after you’ve finished cleaning, as you’ll need to dispose of all the dirt, dust and debris you’ve collected with your Shark vacuum.
In this CleanersAdvisor guide, we’ll provide you with everything you need to know on How to Empty A Shark Navigator Vacuum, detailing every step of the way with what you should do, in addition to a picture that’ll help you do it properly.
How to Empty A Shark Navigator Vacuum
To empty the shark navigator vacuum, start by lifting the dust cup after sliding the dust cup release tabs on the top of the dust cup. Place the dust cup on top of a trash can, then press on either one of the release buttons, the bottom one will open the lower side of the cup, while the upper button will open the upper side of the cup. Reinstall the cup into its place and you’re done.
How to do that in a step by step manner? Follow these steps:
1. Make sure you’re not connected to any electricity source
Having a connected vacuum to any power source may result in countless problems, starting from fatal problems that may put your life at risk when dealing with an interior component, into a load of unlimited problems that can occur to your vacuum.
2. Slide the dust cup release tabs
Once you’re disconnected from the power source, slide the dust cup release tab upwards, then lift up the dust cup.
This will help you manage the dust cup apart from the whole vacuum, which is easier and makes the whole process faster.
3. Locate a trash can
It’s better to have a trash can near you when emptying the shark navigator vacuum so as not to make a mess out of a cleaning chore.
If no trash can is near, locate any plastic bag and move on to the next step.
4. Empty the dust cup
Now, there are 2 different ways in which you can empty the dust cup.
You can use the lower or the top dust cup opening to release the dust, dirt, and debris into the trash can or the plastic bag.
Make sure you’re holding the dust cup properly over the trash can or the plastic bag before pressing the release tab on the top or the bottom of the dust cup.
5. Reinstall the dust cup onto the vacuum
Now that you’ve completely got rid of the dirt, you can reinstall the dust cup onto the vacuum
You’ll hear a clicking sound once it’s fully reconnected to the vacuum.

How to Empty Shark Pet Vacuum
Remove your Shark Pet Vacuum from the electricity source, and then press on the dust cup release button you can locate at the back of the dust cup. Locate the nearest trash can, and put your vacuum’s dust cup over the trash can, then press on either the lower or top release button. Reinstall the dust cup back on the Shark Pet Vacuum, then you’re good to go.
How to Empty Shark Pet Vacuum in a step by step manner:
1. Unplug the vacuum first
Same as we explained with the Shark Navigator vacuum, removing the power cord from the electricity socket helps big time avoiding disasters when it comes to emptying dust cups.
2. Remove the dust cup from the vacuum
This is the main difference between Shark Navigator Vacuum and Shark Pet Vacuum, as you’ll need to press on the dust cup release button instead of sliding the dust cup release tabs like you did with the Shark Navigator Vacuum.
3. Locate the trash can and empty the dust cup
Similar to what we did with the Shark Navigator Vacuum, you’ll need to locate the nearest trash can, hold your dust cup over it, and empty the cup using either the top or the bottom release tabs.
4. Reinstall the dust cup
Reinstalling the dust cup is the last step as you’ll only need to put it in the same manner you removed it from the vacuum, and the clicking sound will be the signal you’ve done a good job
