3This unit is equipped with a
precision charger that monitors
the batteries to ensure a full
charge for every use and to extend
the life of the batteries. Depending
on usage, the time for a full
charge is 3 to 6 hours.
4One half of the blue LED light
around the power button will
illuminate while the unit is
charging. When the charge is
complete, the complete oval will
be illuminated for one (1)hour.
(fig. 4) After one (1) hour, the LED
light will turn off but the unit will
remain fully charged.
If the charging light does not
illuminate, ensure that the
charging adapter is plugged
in properly to the wall outlet
and to the back of the charging
base. Also ensure that the
unit is properly seated in the
charging base.
USING YOUR SHARK ® CORDLESS VACUUM
USE YOUR CORDLESS VACUUM
TO CLEAN BARE FLOORS,
CARPETS AND RUGS.
1Place your foot lightly on the top
of the motorized brush and tilt the
handle back to release the unit
from the locked upright position.
• Lightly press the power button
on the motorized floor brush
with your foot to turn the
vacuum on to a high speed
optimized for carpet cleaning.
MAXIMIZING THE LIFE OF YOUR
BATTERY
1To enhance battery life, this vacuum
is equipped with an advanced feature
that will shut off the vacuum when
the battery is almost fully discharged.
If the vacuum shuts off while in use,
charge the unit until the complete
oval around the power button is
illuminated, indicating a full charge.
2Charge the vacuum for 6 hours
before initial use. After initial use,
each recharge will take 3 to 6 hours.
A complete oval around the power
button will illuminate when the charge
is complete.
3 T he precision charger monitors the
batteries so you don’t have to. A
complete charge can take as little as
3 hours, but may take up to 6 hours
because the charger monitors battery
properties to extend battery life.
Leaving the unit in the charger past
the complete charge time will NOT
harm the batteries.
4If the vacuum has never been used
or has not been used for an extended
period of time, it will take 3 to 5
complete charge and run down cycles
to realize the full operational time of
the vacuum.
5Do not store or charge in areas of high
temperature or humidity.
6Use only the charge adapter supplied
with this unit, marked with “For
SV1100 series Models Only”. If other
chargers are used, the battery can fail
causing damage to the battery, to the
vacuum, or to personal property.
On this setting, the vacuum
will run for approximately 15
minutes.
• Press the button again to switch
to a lower speed optimized for
bare floor cleaning. On this
setting the vacuum will run for
approximately 21 minutes. The
LED lights around the power
button will indicate your speed.
IMPORTANT: The indicator light
around the power button will
flash if the brush roll stops
due to a jam. This feature is
designed to protect the Lifetime
Belt that powers the brushroll.
See “Restarting After a Jam” on
page 8.

CLEANING THE MOTORIZED
BRUSH AND CLEARING
BLOCKAGES
CLEANING THE FILTER
Your vacuum has a high efficiency
dust cup to maintain strong suction by
preventing debris from collecting on
the filter. To maintain strong suction,
it is important to clean the foam filter
every month, under normal use.
1 T urn off the vacuum and remove
the dust cup.
2Remove the foam filter (fig. 9) and
rinse under water until the water
runs clear. (fig. 10) Squeeze the
excess water out of the filter and
let it air dry for 24 hours before
replacing.
• DO NOT use a hair dryer or
other forced hot air to dry the
filter.
• DO NOT operate the vacuum
without the filter in place.
• DO NOT operate the vacuum
with a wet filter.
NOTE: It is normal for your foam filter
to discolor over time; it will not
affect the filter performance.
An accumulation of hair, string, and
other debris may sometimes become
lodged in the flexible air hose of the
motorized brush, in the air inlet of
the dustcup or wrapped around the
brush roll. These areas must be free
from debris for maximum cleaning
performance. To clear blockages and
clean the brush roll:
1 Ensure the vacuum is off.
2Press the release button located
on the rear of the main body and
remove the motorized brush.
(fig. 11)
3To clear the air hose, flip back
the connector to straighten the
air passage (fig. 12) and carefully
remove any debris lodged in the
air hose. DO NOT USE SCISSORS
OR OTHER SHARP OBJECTS AS
THESE MAY DAMAGE THE HOSE.

a build-up of debris. Remove
anything wound around the
brush by carefully cutting it
with scissors. The brush roll is
equipped with a raised cutting
guide to make inserting scissors
easier. Avoid damaging or cutting
the bristles. (fig. 13)
5Use a flashlight to inspect inside
the air duct at the bottom of the
main body and remove any debris
or blockages that may be there.
Reattach the motorized brush,
ensuring it clicks into place.

BRUSH BAR REMOVAL
BRUSH BAR INSERTION
1For easier cleaning, the brush roll
can be removed from the nozzle.
Using a coin, turn the dial next to
the brush roll access door to the
unlock position. (fig. 14) Remove
the brush roll access door.
(fig. 15)
1To reinsert the brush roll, first slip
the black belt onto the white gear
(fig. 17a), then align the white
square on the opposite side of
the brush roll into the square slot.
(fig. 17b)
2Slip the black belt off of the white
gear and lift out the brush roll.
(fig. 16)
6Remove the dust cup and use the
flashlight to check the air path
on the spine of the vacuum and
remove any debris or blockages.
Then replace the dust cup.
2Align the white square on the belt
side and position into its slot.
(fig. 18)
3Replace the door, inserting the
wheel side first. Use a coin to
move the dial to the lock position.
RESTARTING AFTER A JAM
If the indicator light around the power
button flashes, the brush bar has
jammed and will cease to operate.
1Turn the unit off and allow it to
cool down for 10 seconds.
2Ensure that nothing is blocking
the motorized brush or wrapped
around the brush bar.
