Sometimes mine "wand" has no suction too. . . Make sure the vacumn column is clicked into the "standing" position, don't have it at an angle. Also you may have to play with the settings on the bottom part AND the power button together. I think this vacumn sucks (pardon the pun) mine turns off after 10 minutes of use, then I let it sit for an hour and then it'll start again. POS!

Check out www.epinions.com to read up on the latest of vacuums. As a UK citizen we don't have that many Westinghouse vacuums - past models such as the Twister brand name have been Sanyo vacuums rebadged with Westinghouse name on it.
Dyson are on their own when it comes to cyclonic vacuums - no other brand have 100% suction all of the time - without having to clean filters - Dyson patented their own system right when they first started and took Amcar / Fantom to court because of infringement and copywrite. This is probably one of the reasons to why Fantom went bust.

It sounds like you have a hose problem. You should be aware that the Fantom company went bankrupt many years ago. I know that the Fantom name was bought by another company and there may be Chinese units sold under that name, but service and parts availability is an issue. There may be an issue with the power delivery to the powerhead. This is through the hose, from the canister connection and down the wand assy. You should check the continuity from the canister down to the powerhead.

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.

Willnt pick up good...


I had this problem once too. When the hose is inserted into the vacuum, the floor unit (where the spinning brushes are) becomes the head of the vacuum. In other words, the suction goes through the floor part and then up through the hose and into the vacuum. If the suction is good when the hose is out, the the problem is blockage at the bottom piece. Take the cover off of the rollers (it is one screw then it pops right off) and see if there is a bunch of lint/hair/gunk blocking the suction hole. You could also take the hose part out of the vacuum and look down the empty shaft with a flashlight and see if you see anything there. Hope this helps!
