Why is this filter spinning around in my Shark vacuum?


The filter spilled out of my canister when I was dumping out the dust cup and I put it back in. But now it spins wildly in the canister making the whole vacuum vibrate. It doesn't seem like it's sucking as much now and also making high-pitch squeaks due to air being forced.

Here is a link to the ifixit Shark Vacuum Repair guides.

Hopefully your model is listed (you didn't specify) as most guides show how to remove and reinstall the filters.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

I have a Shark Apex Powered Lift-Away.


I figured it out. I had the filter in the wrong part of the dust cup housing.

Rookie mistake ;)
