The warranty is issued by the manufacturer, Shark in this case.
I am not sure, but I would guess the warranty is for the motor only.
No matter where you buy the vacuum from, you have to call the manufacturer and register it for the warranty.
No. You can buy from Shark.com and pay more for the same piece of equipment or another retail store too. Walmart was the best price when I did my research and got mine. I love it!!!!!!!! I'm never going back to any other brand. I used to go through belts like crazy (have long mid back length hair and my daughter too). I cut hair out of my vacuum every 3 times I use it for my whole house. (Regular maintenance is what I would call cutting my hair our of the floor brush...) If you don't take care of something you can't expect it to last. I never worry about the belt b/c it's lifetime warranty on it. I have had mine for 2 1/2 years now with absolutely NO ISSUES. P.S. It is so good I can do my glitter toes on my rug in the family room and suck up any glitter residue with no excess in my rug AT ALL! The suction is VERY powerful. I have owned Kirbys, Dirt Devils, etc. Shark compares to a Dyson... for only a fraction of the cost!
