Shark DuoClean PowerFins Powered Lift-Away Self-Cleaning Brushroll Upright Vacuum Owner’s Manual

AZ2000 Series



To reduce the risk of electric shock, this vacuum cleaner has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
DO NOT force into outlet or try to modify to fit.


When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:

  1. Your vacuum cleaner may consist of a motorized nozzle, wand, hose, and/or vacuum pod. This device contains electrical connections, electrical wiring, and moving parts that potentially present risk to the user.
  2. Use only identical replacement parts.
  3. Carefully observe and follow the instructions provided below to avoid improper use of the appliance. DO NOT use the vacuum for any purpose other than those described in this manual.
  4. Before use, carefully inspect all parts for any damage. DO NOT use if any parts are damaged.
  5. The use of an extension cord is NOT recommended.
  6. This vacuum cleaner contains no serviceable parts. USE WARNINGS
  7. This appliance can be used by persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
    Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children. Keep the appliance and its cord out of reach of children. DO NOT allow the appliance to be used by children. DO NOT allow to be used as a toy. Close supervision is necessary when used near children.
  8. Always turn off the vacuum cleaner before connecting or disconnecting any motorized nozzles or other accessories.
  9. DO NOT handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
  10. DO NOT use without filters in place.
  11. Only use Shark® branded filters and accessories.
  12. DO NOT damage the power cord:
    a) DO NOT pull or carry vacuum cleaner by the cord or use the cord as a handle.
    b) DO NOT unplug by pulling on cord. Grasp the plug, not the cord.
    c) DO NOT run the vacuum cleaner over the power cord, close a door on the cord, pull the cord around sharp corners, or leave the cord near heated surfaces.
  13. DO NOT put any objects into nozzle or accessory openings. DO NOT use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce airflow.
  14. DO NOT use if nozzle or accessory airflow is restricted. If the air paths or the motorized floor nozzle become blocked, turn the vacuum cleaner off and unplug from electrical outlet. Remove all obstructions before you plug in and turn on the unit again.
  15. Keep nozzle and all vacuum openings away from hair, face, fingers, uncovered feet, or loose clothing.
  16. DO NOT use if vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, or has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water.
  17. Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
  18. DO NOT leave the vacuum cleaner unattended while plugged in.
  19. When powered on, keep the vacuum cleaner moving over the carpet surface at all times to avoid damaging the carpet fibers.
  20. DO NOT place vacuum cleaner on unstable surfaces such as chairs or tables.
  21. Your Shark® vacuum may not be designed to stand up on its own.
    When taking a break from cleaning, you may need to lean it against furniture or a wall, or lay it flat on the floor. Using the vacuum for an application where the unit lacks stability may result in personal injury.

    e) Smoking or burning objects (hot coals, cigarette butts, or matches)
    f) Flammable or combustible materials (lighter fluid, gasoline, or kerosene)
    g) Toxic materials (chlorine bleach, ammonia, or drain cleaner)
  23. DO NOT use in the following areas:
    a) Poorly lit areas
    b) Wet or damp surfaces
    c) Outdoor areas
