How to Reconnect Shark to WIFI
Shark vacuum cleaners are known for their efficiency and advanced features. One of the most convenient features is the ability to connect them to your home’s WIFI network, allowing you to control and monitor your vacuum from your smartphone or other devices. However, sometimes you may encounter connectivity issues or need to reconnect your Shark vacuum to WIFI. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
Step 1: Prepare your Shark vacuum
Make sure your Shark vacuum is turned off and unplugged from the power source. Locate the WIFI button on your vacuum, usually located on the handle or the top of the unit.
Step 2: Connect to the SharkClean network
Turn on your vacuum and press the WIFI button. This will activate the SharkClean network. On your smartphone or computer, go to your WIFI settings and look for the SharkClean network. Connect to it by entering the provided password.
Step 3: Launch the SharkClean app
Once connected to the SharkClean network, open the SharkClean app on your smartphone or device. If you don’t have the app, download and install it from your app store. Follow the on-screen instructions to create an account or log in if you already have one.
Step 4: Add your Shark vacuum
In the app, tap on the “Add a Device” option and select your Shark vacuum model from the list. Follow the prompts to pair your vacuum with the app.
Step 5: Connect to your home WIFI network
Once your vacuum is successfully paired with the app, you’ll be prompted to connect it to your home’s WIFI network. Select your network from the available options and enter your WIFI password. Your Shark vacuum will then disconnect from the SharkClean network and connect to your home WIFI.
Now your Shark vacuum is reconnected to WIFI, and you can start using the app to control and monitor it remotely. Remember to keep your smartphone or device within the WIFI range to ensure a stable connection.
