SOURCE: Replacing the electical cord on Kenmore Progressive Vacuum

To the right of where the cord comes out of the machine is a large screw. Remove it, and slide the upper handle assembly free.
Then, on the front of the machine, remove the screws located toward the top of the vacuum just inside the bag chamber cover. This will allow the front panel to be removed, giving you access to the cord from the front.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg
fantombeltchange3.jpg

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.

SOURCE: i need to replace power supply. where the cord

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's the cord that needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common problem that we see on Kirby repairs.
The Kirby motor is very well built, and usually has a life of 30+ years (G3 is about 12-15 years now). The only other problem it could be on the Kirby would be carbon brushes, or the switch assembly.

I would first try testing the power cord, I think this will solve the problem for you. To test a cord on a Kirby Generation (all Generation models are the same machines, just different colors) first follow where the cord goes into the Kirby at the bottom. To access this cover easier, first remove the "boot" at the bottom of the outer bag. This is the plastic part at the bottom of the outer bag that connects onto the Kirby. You will see that there is a plastic cover over the cord. You will need to remove the screw that holds this cover on.

Now after you have removed the cover, pull the plug out of the machine. Once you have the cord disconnected from the machine, you can now test it to see if there is a short somewhere in the cord. You will need to purchase an inexpensive continuity tester from Home Depot, Radio Shack or most other electronic stores. This will tell you if there is power running through the cord, or if the cord is bad. With the continuity tester, plug the cord into the wall outlet, then put the positive, and negative testing rods into the female end of the cord that plugs into the machine. You will then be able to tell if the cord has continuity going through it. The tester will indicate if there's continuity or not.

The picture here shows that the cord is good. If your tester does not light up, or indicate that there is continuity, you'll simply just need to purchase a new cord. As I stated earlier, this is the most common reason that a Kirby won't turn on.

If however your cord tests OK, this indicates that the machine either needs a new motor (or carbon brushes in the motor) or it needs a new switch.

I have an old fantom thunder upright and need to take the bottom off it to see what is stuck in it. I don't know how to do this.


moz-screenshot.jpgI found a manual for the Fantom Stick Vac, model FS801 (your model may be different).
For "Cleaning Air Driven Turbo Brush", it says:

  1. Remove the turbo brush from the hose or extension tube.
  2. Slide locking latch forward, then tilt the top housing of the brush upwards. The top housing is hinged and will tilt up approximately 45 degrees only.
  3. There may be some dust, lint, hair, etc. on the turbine wheel. Remove as much of this as possible.
  4. You may also use the unit's hose with the crevice tool attached, and use the vacuum to remove any additional debris from the turbine.
  5. Ensure that the turbine wheel moves freely by rotating it with your finger. If the turbine does not rotate, call Customer Service for help.
  6. Once clean, close the top cover of the turbo brush and slide the locking latch towards the rear of the brush to lock.
There is also an image in the manual that might help. You can download the manual for free here.

Hope this helps!

How do you open the hand held vacuum to empty the contents??


There is Dust cup release need where the power cord connect to the vacuum. Once you have released the dust cup from the vacuum. First the are 4 parts to the dust cup, The actual dust cup, the housing for the filter and mesh screen. The dust cup will unscrew from the the housing which holds the filter and mesh screen. You can also pull out the filter and mesh screen out of the housing, If you have taken it apart fully you will have 4 seperate parts.

Eureka Fantom Thunder 12V/older model Need instructions on how to change belt and headlights.I could only find 1 screw on the bottom plate none on top plate. Thanks N J


there are two screws on the Fantom Thunder (It was not made by Eureka though) on the back of the unit just above the rear wheels. Remove these two screws and the top cover can be removed to get to the brushroll, belt and headlights. I believe the light bulbs in this unit are 12 Volt, not 110 volt.

How do I replace the Powercord on a Fantom XT64K Vacuum. The powercord shorted where is comes out of teh housing. I need to open up the unit & replace but need a service manual of instructions. Thanks...


I have done this several times, it's some what simple just take the unit apart and use the old diogram to replace the new one. Or take a digital photo of it opened so you have your own scematic. You should be able to purchess the cord at your local hardware store "be sure you get the same insulated cord" the numbers will be located all down the old cord. Also very important. If you have never done this before I recomend you have someone with this type of knowledge. For safty reasons. good luck and hope you save some $$$$$

Sweeper belt


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Have you replaced the belt with a new one yet? You may want to try replacing the belt, as with flat belts like the Fantom Thunder, they do stretch out 4 -5 inches after time. We in fact recommended replacing a flat belt every year, even if the belt doesn't break, because of the stretching. I think what may have happened, is that your belt is stretched to the point where it will not stay on the pulley as soon as there is any tension (putting the brushes on carpeting), which will cause the belt just to slip off.

You should be able to replace the belt (very inexpensive, we sell Fantom belt for $2) and this should take care of the problem. When you replace the belt, you should also take the roller brush apart and remove any hair, or thread that may be wrapped around the bearings. You should be able to remove the bearing cap by pulling them, or holding one end, and unscrewing the other.

I'd even be willing to send you a free Fantom Thunder belt, if you'd be so kind to vote Fixya for this answer :-) Just send me an email with your name, address, and the exact model number (located on the back of the machine, or the bottom of it) of your vacuum, and vote Fixya, I'll immediately ship you the belt for free!

Please let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with.
