Hello everybody

How to clean and restore suction on your Shark Nv360?


If you wish to maintain the high level of suction on your vacuum and make sure that all components are well-functioned, then it’s always important to clean up your machine.

In the following steps, we’ll guide you through the complete deep cleaning process for your long neglected shark navigator lift-away deluxe nv360 vacuum cleaner, which should be both effective and accessible for most of you.

Take out all the parts

To start with, you’ll need to read the instruction manual to learn how to correctly dissemble certain parts on the vacuum unit, and how you can completely remove the cover for inner deep cleaning. The simple parts that you can tackle first on your shark navigator lift-away nv360 is the dust container, which is attached by the two side latches.

Then proceed to take out the two filters at the bottom of the dust cup. And don’t forget about the HEPA filter at the front of the motor unit. Finish the initial dismantlement by taking out the hoses and the handler, which can be easily unlocked, thanks to the accessible locking mechanisms.

And if you wish to clean it a little further, the cleaner head can also be taken apart, by simply pushing on the red lock button and pulling the canister upward.

Clean the dust container

You’ll start the cleaning by washing the dust container with water. Feel free to use soap if you have neglected it for too long and stains are starting to form. Scrub and wash until it’s fully transparent again. And don’t forget to work your brushes or scrubbing pads onto the metal grate at the center. This part is often blocked by all kinds of dust and dirt, causing the significant losses of suction power.

Clean the filters

And with the collected filters, you can run them under water to clean up the dirt and dust that have built up over time. Feel free to wash and rinse the foam filter with soap to clean it completely. For the fiber filter, you can run it under water, or simply beat the dirt out while standing outdoors.

And lastly, for different models, their HEPA filters may or may not be washable. So the best option would be to beat out the dust. But with a Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360 vacuum, you can enjoy the premium washable filter, which can be easily rinsed off with water.

Clean the hose and pipes

Since the dust and dirt are often hidden inside your hoses and pipes, it’s difficult to notice the problems, despite this being one of the most common problems for suction loss. To clean them, simply run pressurized clean water throughout the inside of the components until you find the water not getting brown anymore.

Clean the cleaner head

As for the cleaner head, you can either choose to take it apart and clean the inner components, or simply clean the exposing parts. For the normal consumers, you’ll only need to clean your brush roll by cutting off hair lumps and wipe the exposing areas with a clean cloth.

Put things back together

After the parts are properly cleaned and dried, you can put them back together, just like when taking them out. Run the machine a few times to feel the major improvement in suction.
