Question about Fantom Vacums FM741 Twister Bagless Upright Vacuum

Open Question

My Fantom Twister Model FM744H Roller has lost its bristls and the manufcture no longer has the part, neither does any of the parts stores I have contacted from the internet. Is there a roller for another vacumn that I could purchase? If I have to insert new bristles into the existing roller what is the best process to follow?

On my fantom cylone I use a 2 foot wire with small hook. Open bottom and push wire up the vacuum channels. There is also a channel that goes to the brush. Check for suction at hose. If none then your one of your channels going up are blocked. If you have suction at hose but none at floor brush then channel to floor brush is plugged.

Take off the bottom plate (where you would access the belt). Put the wheel
back on, put the screw back in the wheel and looking from the underside
of the vacuum you can see the screw. You need a bolt and preferably a
lock washer and that should hold it for you.

When you say, "just stopped", did the MOTOR stop operating and there's no sound from it at all? Or, is the motor still working or sounds like it does, and it stopped vacumning?

If the MOTOR stopped, most likely there is a short somewhere in the connection at the motor. Think 'repair shop'.
If the motor still runs and there's no VACUMN ACTION, think Roller Brush which operates by virtue of a rubber belt. Turn the machine on its side and turn it ON, keeping FINGERS !AWAY! from the roller area. If the Roller Brush is not moving it may be that the belt has slipped off or is broken or simply too loose to turn the Roller. Also sometimes debris such as strings, long hair, carpet strands/fibers will become wrapped around the roller especially next to the roller bearing/brace points, to the point of binding so tightly that the roller will no longer be able to actually roll which would now prevent it from 'Vacumning' or sweeping dirt and such up into the vortex of the vacumn chamber. In which case, !!UNPLUG!! the machine, use small scissors to cut away the material wrapped around the roller paying particular attention to the brace point areas.

On my 10-year-old model, the two screws securing the cover are under the two llight bulbs. Pry off the clear plastic covers, take out the bulbs and screws, and the cover lifts off.

PLEASE SEND INFORMATION ON PURCHASING REPLACEMENT BELT


There is a website that will sell it to you for 6.00 for one. I just googled Fantom Twister and just look for parts. They have the filters and belts. That is about all we can get for our fantom. Just wish someone would repair these vacums.

I want to know how remove the filter to clean or replace on my fm744h fantom vacuum


The hepta filter has a place on each side to push in.The top
comes off and the filter is inside.The new one is about 24.00.
Remember to clean the dust filter .This is located in a chamber
below the cannister . Remove the cannister and there is a grey plastic tab,it will comes up and dust filter is right there-pinch
it and it will peal out.It can be hand washed and air dried.
