Shark Duoclean vacuums are a desirable model. They are designed to be lighter than most vacuums and are adaptable on both hardwood and carpeted surfaces. They are also very expensive vacuums, meaning that when you run into an issue, you need to know how to fix it.
If your Shark Duoclean vacuum is not working, there are a few things to check. Common issues are clogs, power issues, and the motor. As vacuums are used frequently, you can run into the risk of overheating them or forgetting to do general maintenance in a timely fashion.
The good news is that if your Shark Duoclean vacuum is not working, you can do several fixes yourself.
Shark Duoclean Vacuum Brush Not Spinning
When your Shark Duoclean vacuum brushes are not spinning you will be unable to pick up the majority of dust and debris on certain floorings. First, make sure that you are operating your vacuum in the correct setting. If you are, there are a few other areas to check.
If your Shark Duoclean vacuum brush is not spinning, one of the most common issues is that there is something wrapped around one of the brushes. Open the brushroll lid and press the two release buttons at the back of your Shark Duoclean vacuum. This will allow you to pull the brush out.
Once you’ve removed the brush, carefully remove anything that has become wrapped around the brush. Also, check behind the brushroll to see if there are any additional blockages behind the brushroll. Put the brushroll back in and make sure that you fully clip it in before closing the brushroll lid.
You want to be sure that your brushroller is fully attached before you go to use your vacuum.
There could also be an issue with your nozzle. If your wand has not fully been reattached after using it your vacuum will assume that you are still trying to use the wand. Reattach the wand and your brushroll should begin to spin again.
Shar Duoclean Vacuum no Suction
If your Shark Duoclean vacuum is turned on and sounds normal, but has no suction, there can be a few issues behind this. It is a very frustrating problem as the sole purpose of your vacuum is to remove dust and debris from your flow. Your dust cup should always be emptied after you use your Shark Duoclean vacuum. If it’s full, your vacuum will have no suction. If this is not the cause, there are a few other problems that could be the culprit.
If your Shark Duoclean has no suction and the dust cup is empty, check your filters. Like with the dust cup, to operate properly your vacuum needs to be cleaned often. You can find your filters after you remove your dust cup. The filters are made of a felt frame and can safely be rinsed underwater.
Be sure that the filters have a significant amount of time to dry before you put them back into your Shark Duoclean vacuum, otherwise, you’re setting yourself up for an electrical risk.
Suction can also be affected by a blockage in your vacuum system. Checking for blockages is easy. Make sure that the floor nozzle and all the hoses are clear. If you are checking for blockages in the wand and can’t see any, you can use a long item, such as a bent hanger, to get higher up. Depending on how often you use your Shark Duoclean, blockages can manifest higher up.
Similar to a blockage, there could be an issue with your rollers. If something like a string gets wrapped around the rollers, they won’t be able to spin. You can easily remove the bruises by pressing the release buttons near the back of the vacuum. Once you’ve removed them, carefully remove anything that has become entangled around them. To reinsert them you can simply click them back into place, but before you use your Shark Duoclean vacuum, ensure that they are fully attached.
Shark Duoclean Vacuum Lights Blinking
Your Shark Duoclean vacuum has several different meanings behind the lights. If you notice that your light is green, for example, it means that your Shark Duoclean vacuum is in proper working fashion. Red indicates that there is a problem preventing your vacuum from operating. If the lights do not display at all, you know that you have an issue with power.
If your Shark Duoclean lights are blinking, it means one of two things. Either there is a blockage or you are running on low power. The ideal first place to check is to see if there is a blockage. Check your brushroller by lifting the lid and removing the brushroller by pressing the buttons on the side towards the back of your vacuum.
Clean out any debris that may have become wrapped around your brushes. Also, check the area behind to see if there is a build-up in the hose. Next check to see if the wand has anything that is clogging it. If you can’t see anything at the opening, you can use an item such as a hanger to reach blockages that are further up.
If there are no blockages, make sure that your Shark Duoclean vacuum’s battery is fully charged. Otherwise, connect it to a power source and wait for it to recharge.

Shark Duo Clean Vacuum Won’t Turn On
If your Shark Duoclean vacuum won’t turn on, check the most logical place first. Ensure that your Shark Duoclean vacuum is plugged into a working outlet. If it is, there could be a couple of other issues behind this problem.
If your Shark Duoclean vacuum is not turning on there is a good chance that it has overheated. This will happen when you continue to use your vacuum and there is a blockage that is affecting the motor. The motor will need to work harder than it typically would to compensate for the blockage in suction.
Disconnect your Shark Duoclean from power and check both the brushroll and the wand for any blockages. If you find any, be sure to get them entirely out. Next, check to see if the dust cup is empty. Lastly, remove the dust cup and check the filters beneath it.
These should be regularly cleaned. The great news is that they are very easy to clean; simply rinse them underwater and set them out to let them fully dry before reinserting them.
The issue could also be with your Shark Duoclean’s power button itself. The switch beneath the power button that connects to the circuit and powers the vacuum can break. If this is the case, you will need to replace that power switch.
