Question about Westinghouse WST1551 Wired Deluxe Upright Vacuum
Hi! I just received a westinghouse wired upright vaccum. It works great, well, it did at first. But I'm embarrassed to say that since I didn't get a manual with it, I didn't realize the filter had clogged and needed cleaning until the vacuum stopped working mid-use this morning. I didn't smell any burning wiring - but the machine won't turn back on. Is there a trip switch I can flip to "reboot" it now the filters are cleaned out? Or should I take it in to get looked at? Many thanks, Susan
The motor may have overheated, causing a protective device to open and permanently disable it.

SOURCE: Loud noise
When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.

Remove clear snap-in lights lens. Remove both lightbulbs. Where the bulb sockets are there is a screw, remove them. Then simply pull up on the housing from the rear where the wheels are and remove the top cover.

Here is a copy of the manual for your vacuum
What could be the problem is the battery could be shot after not being used for so many years that the life of the battery is done. I would recommend taking it to a local vacuum store and have them take a look at the connections between where the battery goes and the motor.

Hello, your Fantom vacuum will take a Panasonic U vac belt, to replace it, their are two screws in the back, one on each side of the back of the housing, take out the two screws and lift off the top hood, and the vac belt is on the side, remove the brush roller clean any debis away, put the new belt around the metal motor shaft first then around the brush roller, and pull down into the housing, make sure it locks in evenly, then turn the roller to make sure it moves freely. then put the hood back on front first, hold down and put the screws back in, in the back. now your ready to vacuum. Any question or more help I can give, please call 1561-848-3387 Thank you, Teresa.
