Shark Navigator Upright Vacuum for Carpet and Hard Floor with Lift Away Hand Vacuum, Pet Tool, HEPA Filter, and Anti Allergy Seal (NV352), Lavender.
Due to the tremendous suction of the Shark Navigator Lift Away vacuum, the suction release feature has been added.
This allows you to adjust the amount of suction to optimize push and pull on high pile carpets and area rugs.
For instance, if you’re cleaning a small area rug and it is being pulled up by the floor nozzle, simply turn the suction release collar located at the base of the handle to the right to release excess air from the unit.
This will lower the amount of suction at the floor nozzle, making it easier to push and pull the vacuum while still getting your carpets clean.
When you need maximum suction or when using the turbo brush, ensure the suction release collar is turned all the way to the left.
We recommend you use the suction release feature on small area rugs and delicate fabrics.

1st off I will take some blame as I should have read MUCH deeper into the reviews.1- The vacuum is a top heavy Engineering FLOP. The cat could easily tip this over. Seriously that bad. 2- The plastic elbow that sticks out 3″ on the back side is just a breakage waiting to happen. That is the weakest stability/balanced direction also. Another Engineering FLOP.3- The intake head is so narrow that if you have and couch or coffee table etc… that has a bump out or overhang the mid part of the body hits and the intake doesn’t even get tight to the furniture. Yes from the top it looks like the intake head is wider than the body but upon turning upside down and lookin at the roller, The roller is 1.25″ from each side. Engineering FLOP.4- The intake head is at least 2″ less wide than a standard vacuum. Total is 9 1/8″, So if you have a mid size or bigger work zone you will notice at least a 20% increase in working time as this is at least 20% narrower than a standard vacuum. Not really a flop, just inefficient.5- All the tools do not attach. Hmm we all know what happens to those couple small items in about a year. The ones that do I can see not staying there once pulled in/off and put back on several times. To many people that claim this thing has awesome suction and the holding tank has tons of stuff in it that the old vacuum didn’t pick up,,, well I’m guessing mostly because there is brand new SHARP bristles on the roller. That would be your Carpet/rug being shaved. Not hard to figure that out. Will see 6 months from now.Only positive I see so far is price. You can buy 3 of these for the price of some of the fancy Names but will the hassle and down time of when it breaks be worth it. I’m sorry but how could any Engineer and or CEO/board member be proud of this vacuum??? I will give it a fair shot and update the review as time moves on.

Shortly after I purchased this vacuum, I came to Amazon to write my review. My review couldn’t be submitted because Amazon had the reviews for this product locked down due to suspicious review activity. If I had known that before buying, I probably wouldn’t have purchased the vacuum. I feel like Amazon should let their customers know if reviews for a specific product have been locked down due to suspicious activity.Cons:–Cord is about 15′ too short. I use this in a two bedroom apartment (1,236 sq. ft) and have to plug it into three different outlets to reach all of the areas in the apartment.–Power button is in an odd place–Canister detachment method should be easier–Power cord enters vacuum at the very bottom. Unless you loop it over the top cord wrap arm, you’ll constantly step on the cord.Pros:–Suction is great–Edge to edge cleaning couldn’t be better–Lightweight–Moves easy–Attachments work great–Right priceI’ve had a Dyson DC07 since about 2003. With regular filter replacements, that vacuum cleaner works better than great. We’ve temporarily relocated and didn’t want to bring the Dyson with us so based on previous reviews, I bought the Shark. I’d say the suction is about 75% of what the Dyson does based on my experience. The Dyson is more ergonomically friendly and that’s what the Shark is lacking.Bottom line, I’d recommend this vacuum cleaner but if you’ve got a bigger budget, go with something better.

Bummed about this product. We bought it less than a year ago and the suction has stopped working. When I tried to return or get a replacement, they are making me pay $20 for shipping to ship it back. With a warranty of 5 years never losing suction, I’d expect more from this.

Purchased a Shark Navigator vacuum. Received on Nov.30 assembled it the next day. It did not work. Contacted the manufacturer and after their troubleshooting determined the motor was defective. They then told me the only remedy was for me to BUY ANOTHER MOTOR FOR $71.00. They said the warranty DID NOT cover the motor despite this being a brand new product. This is clearly a fraudulent company and buyers should BEWARE!!!!

This Shark is a very powerful, compact, and maneuverable vacuum! It pulls more crud out of my carpets than any other vacuum I’ve ever used. The rotating beater bar pulls the unit through even very plush carpets with ease – very similar to the feel of a self-propelled mower. It’s a terrific value, but does have a couple of minor flaws:Power cord – Whoever determined that the power cord should terminate at the base of the unit needs a swift kick in the groin – daily! I’m constantly catching the power cord with my own feet and/or having to try to wrangle it up away from my feet. I understand that the modular design makes the cord placement challenging, but more effort needed to be put into managing the cord so it wouldn’t be a perpetual tripping hazard. I’m convinced the fellow who designed this hasn’t spent more than 5 minutes actually using the product.Also, the cord really needs to be another 6-9′ longer since most “older” homes – y’know, those that pre-date the invention of the compact disc – aren’t peppered nearly so liberally with power outlets as newer, more tech-aware homes.Vacuum hose – It’s a small gripe, but that vacuum hose could sure stand to be just another 12″ longer or allow a bit more stretch.

We purchased this vacuum as an attempt to get something that would actually suck! This delivers! It actually left vacuum trac marks in the carpet, and the room even smelled fresher then when we used our old vacuum…I am thinking this has to be because of the filters, and no “dust” is escaping back into the air. This is a heavy vacuum, so not the easiest to use on stairs. So will likely use the pet hair attachment and crevice tool for that job. Because of the WEIGHT of the machine I did take off one star for versatility, and three for “light weight” because it is very heavy. That is a good and bad thing, but for cleaning the carpets it is a very good thing. Cannot belive the disgusting dust that this thing picked up! We purchased extra filters at the same time as the vacuum so we can wash them out and be certain they are completly dry between use. Very pleased, and the delivery was unbelievably quick despite the Canada Post mail disruption.
So much better than my expensive Dyson! I love the HEPA filter!I vacuumed my living room with the dyson and right after did it again with the shark, the amount of dust the shark got was unbelievable! Bye bye overpriced Dyson!!!
I have been using this vacuum for a few months now, after purchasing and returning 3 other vacuums. This vacuum is seriously great for the price point. It has better auction then my Dyson did, for less than half the price. The only problem that I gave with it is that the hose is a little weird. It is the length it is going to be without being extendable so you have to get right up to whatever you want to vacuum with the hose portion or else the vacuum with fall over and I am concerned that the hose will get loose/saggy over time. Still, I would buy this vacuum again because you really can’t beat that kind of cleaning power for so cheap.
Excellent suction. Great design allows disassembly in so many places so a clog can easily be corrected. Like the hepa filter and ability to take the canister completely and empty in the garbage in my garage. The canister is sealed so dust cannot escape before I empty it- eliminates a plume of dust from escaping inside the house. Great value. Manueovers well but I still find it a bit heavy- but that’s the nature of uprights- I’d prefer a canister vac but they aren’t available with the quality of this vac, at this price point.Would be nice if it had a retractable cord, as well, but it’s a great vacuum overall.

If you want to get this vacuum for your pet hair troubles, look elsewhere. They may say it’s good for pet hair (as well as including the pet hair extension in the product pics, and mention the “Small Pet Hair Power Brush” in the Included Components section) but it actually just comes with the Pet Upholstery Tool instead of the Pet Power Brush. See pic. Pretty misleading marketing. The Pet Power Brush is an extra $50+ so you could do that I guess…
Wonderful and powerful vacuum! Very proud to see the pet brush suck so much hair. Recently I buy turbo premium pet brush to see if it works better. I have a $1100 Miele S8 vacuum and damaged after several years of use. And this one suck hair better
Coming from using a central vac for the last 15 years (system was losing suction as it was over 20 years old) it has been a change but I really like how strong the vacuum in evidence of having to empty the canister (really really easy!) after less than a month after having the vacuum. I like that the carpet spinner is just a different setting on the power button rather than having to switch heads like the central vac.

This is my second Shark Vacuum, love their products so much and the company itself is amazing and helpful. I had a problem with the engine after a while of use, called shark and a new engine was on its way. Highly recommend this company!!!

I’ve been using Dyson for years, but now the main vacuum is broken, they cannot fix it and I looked for a less expensive one. Suction is very good, however, the returned air is really warm (and on a hot day you can feel warming up the room!) and it is heavy and difficult to handle. I have arthritis in my hands and I found it heavy on my wrists with the twists and turns.
