Question about Fantom Vacums Lighting Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Where would I find a replacement power head with brushes

Occasionally there are power surges in the power head which causes the brushes to stop, but the main vacuum continues to work. Brushes are also worn down after all these years. Can I replace just the power head and if so, where would I find a new part.

SOURCE: How do i replace the belt in the Fantom Cyclone XT vacuum

remove the covers over the headlights and under the shiny foul. there are two screws. there are two tabs that hold down the cover over the wheels, they just pop on/off with a click.
on my xt. i had to remove the rolling brush and clean out all the hair that was stuck in the bearings. remove the screw holding down the motor and belt. pry out the roller brush to get to the bearings. there was some serious hair ball in there.
reassembled mine and it works perfectly now :)

Kirby G4 was surging, then a flash of light and a pop from outlet!

the surge is caused by a faultering armture, might be caused by low carbons or sticking carbons, strip the motor down for inspection. Or take it to your local kirby service centre shop for clean and service and polish. price range from 39 to 59

What should I check to trouble shoot a Eureka 6865 smart vac making very loud whirring noise? Filter and bag are clean. Hose is unblocked.

Hi, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

I'd say at this point if you've checked your bag, filter and hoses it may be time to check your brush roll and belt. These two fast moving parts, when loose, damaged or just in need of replacement may occasionally give off an odd noise.

Turn the power wand over to expose the base plate that covers the brush roller. The power wand can get dirty and collect debris in the brush roller over time. The grinding noise may be something stuck in the brush roller, causing it to hit the edges when the vacuum is operating. Removing obstructions and cleaning dirt and debris collected over time should allow the vacuum to operate quieter. Unscrew the base plate cover with a Phillips head screwdriver. Lift out the brush roller and belt. Cut away any obstructions, such as string, hair or rubber bands, from the brush roller. Wipe the brush roller and belt with a damp rag to remove any dirt and allow them to air-dry. Wipe down the brush roller housing and inside the base plate with the damp rag. Any noticeable difference now once it's dried and turned on?

Should you need any replacement parts for your Eureka in the future please feel free to order direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for readers, use code: FIXYA10

Dyson dc 24 brush works intermittently

Hi Chris, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24's brush bar is designed to shut itself off for protection if something jams it. Please follow the steps shown in the video attached to remove any threads or hair from the brush bar and end cap, and to check the cleaner head for any obstructions. Once you've done this you should be able to reset the machine.

If you'd like further advice from our experts after you've given this a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we'll be happy to confirm if this is covered under your machine's 5-year warranty.

The main brush head on my Dyson Digital Slim will stop turning during vacuuming. I let out on the power trigger, push back in and the brush head will work for a bit and then stop again. My digital slim is...

It's probably due to a build-up of dirt/hair around the brush head or a blockage in the suction head just behind the brush (where the hole is smaller and bends slightly before entering the extension tube. Remove the brush from the head of the machine and also the extension tube between the head and the top of the machine and then gently clear the rectangular hole in the brush compartment with something flexible (maybe a piece of wire or a pipe-cleaner) depending on how bad the blockage is. Then remove any hair/strands which may be wrapped around the brush, and any dust in the brush compartment. It may also be a opportune time to wash out the filter which is located just in front of the handle on the upper part of the machine. Leave the filter to dry completely before refitting (in an airing cupboard or near a radiator - may take some hours)

Brushes not turning

Is the motor operating when switched to "on " position? Is so I would have to assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber at all when the brushes stopped working? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

Brush won't rotate when pushed forward

I had the same problem . The reason it acts like that is due to the cable that runs from the vacuum motor to the brush assembly has an intermittent open. My fix was to find the small cable that was causing my troubles and splice it. Making sure that I recovered the insulation. Of course my local repair station wanted to replace it for $75 labor plus parts and keep it for 3 days. I took it home and did it in 30 minutes .

Beater bar brush stopped working...

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.
