If it isnpt plugged inth ehose then change the Tap Filter, It is a little thick and without regular cleaning of the particular part, dust will stay compressed in the little filter, plugging it up and restricting the air movement through the machine. I know this because I own this machine and that is what is wrong with it.

I have fantom FM741H It sadenly stop working. I checked plugs,circuitbraker. They are Ok. What is possible problem? Thanks


I have the same sweeper as you. I have had this sweeper over 10 years. I purchased it from HSN. Model fm741h. Ok here we go. I paid 299. for it 10 years ago. It worked perfectly. Picked up all sorts of things. It stopped working about 5 years ago. I kept it hoping I could get someone to go over it with a fine tooth comb in my area. No one worked on them. So I still kept it. Just today 09/4/2010 I was looking at it. I decided to start taking the whole unit apart. I come to find out all the filters are clogged. I have never replaced them or the belt. The belt was fine, the motor runs, but its just not picking up anything. So inside the canister was caked with dirt. I mean literally DIRT. Inside the part that spins is another filter. I checked the prices on those. Anywhere between 23.00 up to 50.00. So I took a toothbrush and ran it under hot water. Scaped off all the dirt, let it dry and presto....I have my TWISTER back. YIPPY!!! I can't see spending that much on a filter when all you have to do is scrape the dirt off of it. Works perfectly. Now that I know what to do....I'm a happy camper.

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.
