Shark Bagless V1310PT
My husband bought the Shark Bagless V1310PT vacuum cleaner while I was in the hospital last year.
The belt broke after one year. I can only be replaced by ordering it on line... a problem if you are in the middle of cleaning. It took 8 days to arrive.
To replace it, you must essentially take the vacuum apart, removing 9 hidden tiny screws. Once back together, the on off button doesn't work.
I have spent about 6 hours now trying to change the belt, not including the shipping time. It's going out in the trash tomorrow, and I am researching substitutes tonight. A definite don't buy!!!
