Title: Shark NV680UKT not impressed.
Post by: TV Man on March 07, 2019, 04:04:08 PM
Hi
So far this year ive had the misfortune to try and repair 5 sharks of this model.

3 have had burnt out main motors that appear to be not available. The other two are poor suction usual bread and butter faults, But one of them is

really causing a problem it has a blockage mid way in the flexi hose. ive tried my long rod with coarse threaded self tapping bolt on the end to clear it but its not doing the trick, Ive tried sucking it out with numerous different vacuums it wont budge, The handle or bent end is full of electrics springs and latches and doesnt want to come apart, To make things harder the electrics run in the flexi hose so i cant get to rough with it.
Does anyone have a secret way of unblocking flexi hoses i have tried all the usual.........

I know one firm has Shark motors in progress so they'll be available soon.  :icon_nod:

Tragic machines I agree though.

If you want bagless, get a Dyson!
