HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.

SOURCE: Vacuum is whistling and there is no suction through the hose.

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!

Why is there NO Suction from brand new Fantom?


some brands have a small plastic piece that slides across the tube/handle and if it is in the wrong position there is no suction to the tube /handle .. Have you thought to call the manufacturer for tech support or warranty .

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.

Not sucking makeing a clogged noise


Bagless vacuums don't usually get clogged as easily as standard bag styles do. However, if you can disconnect the top half from the brush head section you should see a "neck" where the two meet, check there for a clog. Also check your filters, this is where loss of suction happens most. Dirty filters = Low Suction. I hope this helps

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.

Fantom Twister


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.
