FAQs of Shark Rocket ZS351 

Is the dust cup removable?

Answer: Then the whole dust collection piece is removable. It’s a very easy and convenient process to empty it.

Question: Can you turn the beater bar off and on?

Answer: On the switch at the top of the vacuum. The first click you feel is without the beater bar and then when you slide it in to the second setting it will turn on.

Question: do any of lightweight stick models stand alone?

Answer: My corded model does not stand by itself. The way it’s designed is with the motor at the top and slightly directed to the rear. Whoever designed this, didn’t give that little problem much consideration. It does, however, do an excellent job on both carpets and floors.

Question: Does the anti hair wrap feature work well?

Answer: Considering my tank was full of hair and not even a single strand on the roller I say it works very well!

Question: Does it come with filters

Answer: It comes with two filters . They are very easy to replace. They say to clean them once a month and when they get really nasty you can trace them very reasonably.

Question: They claim that pet hair won’t wrap around the brushroll, but what about human hair that is 24 inches long ?

Answer: Not a problem , my friend has long hair and unfortunately she is losing some , the shark lived up to its name , l have yet to see any hair on the brush roll yet . The shark has been my best buy yet!!!!

Question: Is the vacuum self propelled? Previous models were

Answer: No it is not self propelled

Question: Why wont my beater bar spin when i attach the unblocked wand to it?!??

Answer: Check to make sure nothing is wrapped around the bar. It is supposed to be ‘no wrap’ but mine does occasionally. I have 3 dogs – go figure.
