The issue in GetHuman5184263's own words
Vacuuming under a bed the Shark sucked up a sock and broke the soft brushroll drive gear in less than the few seconds it took to switch off the motor. ... The Self-Cleaning Brushroll *****FC*** for my MODEL * LZ*** Shark* APEX* UpLight* Vacuum broke at the drive gear after sucking up a sock. The damage occurred in less than the few seconds it took to cut off power switch after motor sound changed. I'm disappointed that engineering did not protect the brushroll. I've had the vacuum only ** days. *I am quite willing to pay $**.** for a new self cleaning brushroll *****FC*** . HOWEVER, SHARK IS OUT OF THIS PART AND GIVES NO WAY TO ACQUIRE IT IN THE FUTURE OTHER THAN TO TROLL YOUR WEBSITE EVERY DAY. HOW CAN I USE A BRAND NEW $*** VACUUM IF YOU DONT SUPPLY PARTS FOR AN OBVIOUSLY UNDER ENGINEERED PART WHICH PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE ORDERING ALL THE TIME. *When will SHARK provide replacement part * ****FC*** ?
They are out of stock on this vital part * ****FC*** and give no estimate on date of availability
Please make part available or at the very least give a time estimate of availability
At the price of $*** I never imagined that common event of a sock drawn into device could destroy a major component.
Looked at multiple *rd party sites unsuccessfully for this part.
