    Is it new, right out of the box, or have you used it successfully recently and of a sudden it stopped working?

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.

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.

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.

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.
