简介

This guide will teach you how to remove and replace the rotary brush on the Shark Rocket HV301. There are a few reasons you may need to replace the rotary brush on your vacuum. For instance, the bristles may wear over time or the bearing caps on the ends of the brush may seize up, preventing the brush from spinning properly.

This is a simple repair that can be done by anyone and can improve the capabilities and lifespan of your vacuum. It can be done with common tools almost everyone should have easy access to. However, links are provided throughout in the case that you do not have one of the necessary tools. A link to the owner's manual can be found found here.

  1. Flip the vacuum so the bottom base is visible. Gently pry the bottom two wheels off with a plastic opening tool. Gently pry the bottom two wheels off with a plastic opening tool.

    They don't have Phillip's screw heads. They have Star head size T15

    Yes, mine are not PH2 but star 15, my problem is I cannot reach two of the screws that are so deep into the molding of the plastic, I cannot get my star T15 in there. Now what?

    What model are these specific brushroll

    Albert Einstein - 回复

    I did all that and had no problem. Due to rug fibers that were lodged in the plastic casing, the plastic itself deteriorates overtime. After cleaning the brush and the plastic casing on both sides it became loose and won’t hold or stay to hold the brush anymore. Where can I order those plastic casing?

    Please help me.

    Thank you

This is a well written and very informative tutorial. Thank you for your time and effort. However, I am finding it difficult to locate a new rotary brush for my Shark Rocket model HV301. At best, I’ve been told that the rotary brushes available ‘May fit’ my vacuum. Hardly a resounding voice of confidence when ordering a replacement part. Does anyone know the part number or ordering information regarding the Shark Rocket model HV301 rotary brush? Thank you for your time.

I also need a new brush did you find out where to get one and could you pass it on to me thank you

Jeffro -

Hi, I'm also having a hard time trying to find the rotary brush roll, does anyone have any suggestions where I can find & purchase it?

Rosalina Padilla -

Try Amazon.com there are several parts for shark vacuum, just make sure to have the model number in hand. I hope this help.

Thanks!

Andres B -

I want to give this author 30 points only because that seems to be the maximum. Excellent work; thank you very much.

Larry - 回复

Thank you ever so much! Who would have thought you’d have to disassemble the vacuum just to get to the roller. Yes, I agree - very poor design. I too am having an issue with the brush. I soaked it in dawn dishsoap and voila! Clean brushes made the world of difference - hope that helps!!

Thank you!!!

ahenningmo - 回复

Oh! Just a suggestion. If my brush fails completely I thought I might try contacting the manufacturer directly which is in China named Intertek?…

ahenningmo - 回复

Just called shark directly, you cannot buy just the brushroll, you have to buy the entire head. $96 plus shipping and handling. they do not just make the brushroll to be replaced, so MAY FIT your machine will probably be the best you can do.

These instructions were very easy to follow. They actually saved me. I needed to wash the brush bar and change the belt, but I thought they were going to be a nightmare to get it out. Everything worked out great.

Yea I used dawn dishwashing detergent to clean the roller brush and other parts. My problem now is where to order the plastic casing that holds the roller brush. Do you know where I can order parts for this model?

I also want to thank the author of the toturial it is really informative. 30 points for the author.

Thank you!!

Andres B - 回复

Try any vacuum cleaner repair shops most will have the parts you need or can order them for you

moffattkim85 -

If the brush roll is damaged you have to replace the whole head because the brush roll is not available separate from the power nozzle.

Great!!! Is there an easy way to pop out those plastic casings at either end?? They are not easy to pry out ——

Pat Garcia - 回复

I am very mechanically inclined, and a normal vacuum cleaner belt would be a breeze could do it with my eyes shut this took me an hour. One bcuz my daughter got my nails done that didn't help at all the little white things you gotta pry off the heater bar was a ##&&% cut myself with a butter knife ?????? even I laughed after I was done cussing. The directions were great putting it back together was a ##&&% but I went back to the directions and hot the job done . Thanks for the help guys. Sincerely Kim Moffatt

Has anyone tried a different roller that ‘MAY FIT’ and found a compatible one? I have the HV300 26 and have counted on it for years. Had taken it apart several times in the past and cleaned it out. My daughters help out by cutting the hair out with scissors. It’s been done so much that the white casings have completely worn. They’ve been shaved down by scissors and now the roller is loose! I’d love to keep this vacuum if there were any roller brush out there that would fit? Even if I could order those white end caps (haven’t found that either). Any suggestions?

(Yeah, I know… buy a new one!)

JMurray - 回复

Very good instructions . All i need now is the right brush. sent model # to get a new brush. The brush sent will fit any vacuum maybe but not this one. Got to stop buying this junk.
