You can find the bags right on their homepage

Its a shame that no 3rd party sells them

    Enter FM709K in the "Parts and Accesories" model number area if it doesnt go direct for you.

Take the old bag and take it to a sweeper shop they can match it up but beware of them trying to sell you something you don't need.They will try and sell you a new sweeper cause the bags are no longer available ,let them know up front you just want to match it up and not interested in the new stuff.

Hi I was wondering if you could tell me the 'mother'company who makes Fantom vacuums? We are looking at the Fantom Power Pet bagged canister 12 amps. do you have any feedback or helpful information on...


Hi Leslie,

The mother company is Euro-Pro or Shark.

My feeling from a service aspect, they are pretty cheap units, and when it comes time for a service, they are a little expensive to fix. You would be better off with another brand, such as Hoover or Eureka. That is my personal opinion and mostly because those two brands are using universal parts.

Good luck.

You will need to contact a vacuum store. The Fantom company went bankrupt years ago and the parts are no longer available. As far as I know, these machines have not been on the market for a long time. I strip these units for any usable parts and hang on to them for this type of situation, but slowly, I've been throwing these parts out, as no one is asking for them. You should consider buying a new vacuum. Stay away from the big box store models. Your best option is to go to a vacuum store. They know what is the best unit for the price and any reputable store won't sell junk. Sorry, but your vacuum is at the end of it's road.

Fantom Canister


It sounds like you have a hose problem. You should be aware that the Fantom company went bankrupt many years ago. I know that the Fantom name was bought by another company and there may be Chinese units sold under that name, but service and parts availability is an issue. There may be an issue with the power delivery to the powerhead. This is through the hose, from the canister connection and down the wand assy. You should check the continuity from the canister down to the powerhead.
