Shark Vacuum parts and functions are very important. The vacuum can only function properly if all of its parts are working together correctly.

In this article, we’d show you a diagram of the various parts of the Shark vacuum. We will also discuss the most common Shark vacuum parts so that you know what they are and how to replace them if necessary.

Shark Vacuum Parts Explained

Power cord

The power cord is the electrical cable that connects your vacuum to an outlet. It can be used to plug in and power the vacuum. The power cord is a flexible electrical cable that connects your Shark vacuums (and other similar products) with an outlet so they can function properly.

Primary filter

The primary filter is the first filter that captures dirt and dust. It’s located at the bottom of your vacuum, inside a sealed box made from foam (which can be washed). The next step up in filtration is called a foam filter; this type of sponge absorbs fine particles as they pass through it.

Lower cord wrap

The lower cord wrap is a simple and effective way to keep your vacuum cleaner’s cord neat and tidy. It also prevents the cord from being tangled, preventing it from being damaged by the weight of the vacuum itself.

Bottom plate

The bottom plate is the base of your vacuum. It’s made of plastic and contains all of the components, including:

  • Brush roll (also called a brush)
  • Wheels
  • Roller brush

The bottom plate also contains two primary filters, which clean out dirt particles from your carpet before they reach other parts of your home or workplace. The secondary filter cleans up any remaining dirt after this process—it needs to be replaced every few months so you can keep cleaning with Shark vacuums!

Roller brush

The roller brush is a long, flexible piece of plastic that sits inside the shark’s vacuum. It has a light-colored center and dark-colored edges, which helps you quickly recognize when it needs to be replaced.

The roller brush should be replaced whenever it shows signs of wear or damage—it could break off in your hand if you’re not careful! If you notice any signs of wear or damage on this part but don’t know how to change it yourself, take your vacuum apart and look for an entryway into its interior; most of these vacuums will have one visible from outside once opened up (and often accessible via small screws).

Dust cup assembly

The dust cup assembly is the part that collects your dirt, hair, and other debris. It’s located on the bottom of your Shark vacuum cleaner and can be removed by rotating it counter-clockwise until it disengages from its position. When you’re done cleaning, simply place it back in place before turning the vacuum back on!

Extension wand

The extension wand is a long, flexible handle that you can use to reach ceiling fans and other hard-to-reach places. This is especially helpful if you have pets or small children who might get into trouble if they get into something dangerous. If your vacuum has a powered brush roll, the extension wand will also help clean up easily-topped messes such as crumbs and dirt from floors that aren’t accessible by the main roller brush head.

The two parts of this tool are its attachment piece (which attaches it directly to your Shark Vacuum) and its cleaning/detachment button. This button should be used when turning off your vacuum so that all connections are released before storing away for later use; otherwise, they may become stuck together over time!

Floor nozzle

The floor nozzle is a long, narrow piece of plastic that you can use to clean upholstery and other areas in your home. It consists of two parts: a groove on one end and an adjustable cap at the other. The groove is designed so that you can slide it under furniture or other items for easy vacuuming.

You should always keep this part clean by wiping it down with a damp cloth after each use or when necessary (like if there are any pet hairballs). If you notice that dust has collected inside the grooves where they meet together, try removing them completely so they don’t get clogged again!

Dust cup lid release tab

The dust cup lid release tab is used to open the dust cup. It should be positioned on the front of your vacuum and can be used to empty out your vacuum’s dust bag. On some models, this button is located on top of your Shark vacuum; others have it located underneath or inside their base unit.


The bumper is the part of your Shark vacuum that sits on top of the main body. It’s used to protect certain parts of your machine from getting damaged, such as electrical components and motor shafts. If you notice that any part of your vacuum has been damaged or lost, this will be marked by a visible crack in one or more spots on the bumper cover itself.

To replace a broken bumper:

  • Remove all dirt and debris from inside—this will help prevent any damage to other parts when removing them later on (see below). Also check for any cracks near where you see this damage so that there aren’t any surprises later down the road when trying to put everything back together again!

Dust Bin

The dust bin is located on top of the vacuum, under a flap. It’s easy to remove and clean when you want to do so, but it’s also good practice not to put anything in there that isn’t meant for vacuuming (small particles, etc.). 

If your shark sucks up way more dirt than usual, then this could be an indication of a clogged filter or something else going wrong with your machine—it’ll need some maintenance or repairs before things get better!


The handle on your Shark vacuum is what you use to carry the vacuum, adjust its height and move it around. It’s also a very important part of your Shark vacuum because if you don’t have a good handle, then it could be difficult for you to use your Shark vacuum effectively.

Head Hinge

The head hinge is the part of your vacuum that connects the head to the body. It can be made of plastic or metal, and it can be molded in different shapes and sizes. The size, shape, and material used for this part will have an impact on how easily you can control your Shark vacuum cleaner.

The head hinge is important for its operation: without it being connected securely to both sides of your Shark vacuum cleaner, it wouldn’t work properly!

Motor Fan Cover

The motor fan cover is a protective piece of plastic that fits over the motor fan. It helps protect your vacuum from overheating and also keeps dust from getting into the motor so it can run better.


After reading through this guide, you should now feel confident in your ability to use the parts and functions of your Shark vacuum cleaner. We hope that by using this guide, you will be able to find what you are looking for with minimal fuss – or no fuss at all!
