Question about Fantom Vacums Cyclone XT Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

The brush status indicator

My Fantom Cyclone XT is now 10 years old. The brush status light goes from green to nothing and/or red and back to green. This happened on and off 6 years ago but had quit until now. It is always clean as as a whistle, nothing clogged anywhere or in the brush. Any ideas where I should go from here? Thanks!

I think the manual can help you in replugging the wires

How did you pull out the wires from circuit board ?
Is it with professional help or through some other means

Replace belt on fantom cyclone vacuum? the manual does not decribe replacing the roller belt - i can't get it open to expose the belt


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.

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 :)

Here is the owners manual which goes over some troubleshooting problems.

http://www.fantom.com/fantom/manuals/Cyclone.pdf

At first I would think it was the thermal overload, which is covered in the manual. But I would guess that you have let it sit for 30 minutes to cool down and tried again and the vacuum still didn't work.
I would think you may have one of four problems.
1. Your thermal overload was tripped and is stuck and will need replaced.
2. You have a clog in your vacuum lines or the brush roller is froze, which keeps causing the thermal overload to trip.
3. Your power cord has a short, which would need replaced.
4. Your power switch is bad, which would need replaced.
Out of these 4 possible problems I would say the only one you could fix on your own would be problem #2. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged and take the brush roller off and clean it, make sure it moves free. Check your vacuum lines to make sure you do not have a clog, other wise the motor does not get air flow to cool it down causing the thermal overload to trip. As for problem 1, 3, and 4 I would suggest taking it to a repair shop.
Hope this helps, post back.

Fantom Cyclone wiring


Hi,

The only sure way recommended (and probably the safest) would beto get a service manual or at least a schematic diagram. The FantomCyclone XT was originally manufactured by Fantom Technologies, Inc.that closed in October 2001. The replacement for a Fantom Cyclone XTwould be Westinghouse Wired Deluxe Edition (either a WST1550 or a WST1551). These replacement products are now handled by Salton Inc. Perhaps you may inquire from them:
  • Salton Inc.
  • 1 800 616 8689
  • salton@saltonusa.com
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Fantom cyclone belt status light


The belt may have stretched to the point that it won't turn the brush roll, you might try a new belt and hope that fixes it. Parts for these older Fathoms are scarce and are obsolete.
