Customer Question
I have Shark...

I have Shark vacuum cleaner (upright) and the brushes no longer turn.

Contractor's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

I am in Sarasota, FL and would like the name of a dealer who can service my vacuum cleaner. The reason I chose this particular one is because it is light but still does a great job of cleaning.

Contractor's Assistant: How do you usually access your email? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

My email is: ***@******.***

Contractor's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Not much. I Did what was suggested but it is as if there is a belt missing or broken that does not turn the brushes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I guess that is it. Any suggestions from you would help. The vacuum is not that old and purchased from Kohls Department store here in Sarasota, FL

Hi........Rita.....I think you are under the wrong impression.......you have arrived at Just Answer.......we are an advisory website assisting our clients with expert knowledge of many subjects......we do not furnish any parts or send out anyone to service your devices .....of course I can help you with advice though our correspondence of e-mail or if you need to do this by phone

But yes you have a broken belt or it is caught up in the unit or missing altogether........this does happen frequently if you want I can get the info on a new belt and then I can tell you how to repair it ...........this is a nominal cost as compared to having it serviced............I will abide by what you want to do ..........please let me know

.….. and thank you
