Important Tips Before Removing Roller Brush From Shark Vacuum

1. Read the user manual thoroughly before doing any single step.

2. Always unplug the vacuum from the power source as a first step before attending to any vacuum component.

3. Shark vacuums differ in many things, this means that understanding the concept of every step is essential to help you master the whole process, instead of following it by the letter.

4. Always ask the kids and pets to be somewhere else while you deal with your shark vacuum’s components, as they can easily swallow a screw or interfere with your work.

1. Removing Screws

The first step in How to Remove Roller Brush From Shark Vacuum is removing the visible and hidden screws on your vacuum’s cover.

As we recently did with our guide on how to take apart shark lift away vacuum, we’ll do this on the Shark Lift Away NV352 model.

In this model, you have 10 screws in total, 6 that are visible and easy to find, 4 that are harder to find.

Luckily, the user manual can help you with finding them.

But we’ll cut through the time and effort needed, as you’ll find the 6 put in RED in this picture, those are the easy to find screws.

The 4 screws in yellow are the harder to find ones, as you’ll need to search for them in the upper 2 screws, and remove the metal thing to reach and remove the lower 2 screws.

2. Removing Cover

Once you have removed all the screws, save them in a safe place where you’ll need them to reinstall everything back from the start.

Now, carefully remove the cover by lifting it off the whole vacuum head, and make sure you don’t drop the other part to the ground.

Just carefully remove the cover, then leave the other part on the ground while you put the cover to the side, awaiting the reinstalling.

3. Removing the Belt

You can closely notice the roller brush and the belt on the vacuum head now, without the cover.

Don’t try to remove the belt with force, there’s actually an easier way to remove it without damaging the vacuum head or the belt.

Lift the right side of the brush roll’s black piece (it holds the brush roll) a little bit, which will allow for an easier removal of the belt.

Remove it with caution, don’t forget to be wearing protective gloves for additional protection.

4. Removing the Roller Brush

You’ve already popped off the right side of the roller brush to easily remove the belt, all that’s left is remove the left side in the same manner.

It may require some force to remove it, but make sure the force is directed at the metal part, not the brush roll itself.

Remove the roller brush now, and sit it aside.

This picture shows how the belt has been removed to the side, and how the metal part of the roller brush is easy to remove from both sides.
