Tube to Fantom Thunder canister blocked

I know where the blockage is, I just can't get to it. How can I clear out the blockage to the canister without tearing down the vacuum? The blockage is in the tube that sits behind the canister and is preventing dirt from going in the canister. I tried to use a paper clip but it was too flimsy.

I cut a strip of window screen about 1 inch wide and 12 inches long and slid it up the tube from the back of the vacuum. The screen edges grabbed the gunk and as I pulled the screen strip out from the tube the gunk came with it, clearing the blockage.

My fantom vacuum stopped sucking stuff up


Most likely there is a clog, either in the 'knuckle' between the power head and the wand, or in the connection where the hose comes into the canister. In either case, unplug the hose and you should plainly see it.

Fantom Canister


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.
