A Shark robot vacuum will keep stopping because of one of two things: the Shark robot vacuum is stuck and cannot move, or something is stuck inside the main brush roller. Once you clean the cylinder brush thoroughly, a Shark robot vacuum should work normally.

How do I reset my Shark robot vacuum?
Turn your machine upside down and find the power switch. Press it for 10 seconds, which triggers the factory reset process. Wait a few seconds before turning your Shark ION robot again.
Why does my Shark vacuum keep stopping?
The vacuum has a safety feature that turns off the vacuum when the vacuum gets to a certain high temperature or overheats. This happens because the vacuum has a motor protective thermostat. If the vacuum turns off due to overheating, the thermostat has to be reset before you can use it again.
How do I know if my shark Ion needs a new battery?
The blue lights indicate how much charge is remaining. If the red “Replace” light is on, then the battery needs to be replaced.
To reset the shark vacuum, put the Power button on the On-Off position and keep the vacuum unplugged. If necessary, clear the hose. Plug the vacuum in again after it cools completely.
What is wrong with my Shark vacuum?
Check for a clogged hose or filter; unclog the hose and replace the filter. Wait 45 minutes for the vacuum to cool; then plug in the vacuum. Turn the power switch to the “I-On” position to start the vacuum. If the vacuum still does not start, contact Customer Service at 1-800-798-7398.
Why did my vacuum suddenly stop working?
It might sound simple, but lack of power is often the cause of a vacuum cleaner that won’t work. Check that the vacuum cleaner is plugged into a working power outlet and that fuses and breakers don’t need resetting. An activated thermal cut-out due to a blockage is the next most likely cause of the problem.
Why does my vacuum keep shutting off?
A damaged vacuum hose, clogged motor air filter or bad suction motor can cause the vacuum cleaner to shut off during use. A tripped overload on the vacuum suction motor can shut off the vacuum cleaner during use. If your vacuum has a reset button, push it; if the vacuum seems hot, let it cool off first.
How long should a shark robot battery last?
The battery life expectancy is at least two years and comes with a two-year limited warranty. Upon product registration, your purchase is recorded. Our Customer Care can review if your battery is under warranty. New battery packs can be purchased at sharkclean.com/batteries.
Why is my robot vacuum not charging?
If your Roomba is not charging, clean the charging ports with a soft cloth and some rubbing alcohol to remove dust, hair, or gunk accumulation. You may also have to reinstall or replace your battery or charging dock or even reset the Roomba to factory settings.
After unplugging the vacuum, detach the hose which will be attached to its bottom. You might have to forcefully pull the hose to detach it from the casing. Then, lay the vacuum on one side. Once you’ve done that, you might be able to see a rubberish button located on the underside of the vacuum.
If a light is flashing, it usually means that something is preventing your vacuum from running. If your Shark vacuum light is flashing, that means the brush roll isn’t spinning. Red lights can mean that the brush roll is jammed or the vacuum is overheating. Flashing lights indicate that something needs to be fixed.
Do Shark vacuums have a fuse?
Breakers, Fuses & Sockets Your Shark vacuum might not be turning on because a fuse is blown or a circuit breaker is tripped. If your Shark vacuum won’t turn on, go see if a fuse needs replacing or if you need to reset a breaker. On a side note, electrical outlets can deteriorate or break.
