    If you can hear the motor running inside the "sweeper" or power head but the brush is not turning, you likely have a broken belt. Turn the head upside down and look for two or more recessed screws in the bottom. Removing these will allow the lid to lift off to inspect the belt. Replace with a belt for the same model #

Sound like your belt broke. most vacuums the bottom plate comes off or the top cover can be removed to access the belt area.

Be certain the charger is working before you look to replace the battery. The manufacturers web site or the owners manual should have a part number for the battery.

Roller brush spins


The roller brush will turn as long as the sweeper motor is running no matter what brand you have. Turn it off as you return it to the upright position.

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

I have fantom FM741H It sadenly stop working. I checked plugs,circuitbraker. They are Ok. What is possible problem? Thanks


I have the same sweeper as you. I have had this sweeper over 10 years. I purchased it from HSN. Model fm741h. Ok here we go. I paid 299. for it 10 years ago. It worked perfectly. Picked up all sorts of things. It stopped working about 5 years ago. I kept it hoping I could get someone to go over it with a fine tooth comb in my area. No one worked on them. So I still kept it. Just today 09/4/2010 I was looking at it. I decided to start taking the whole unit apart. I come to find out all the filters are clogged. I have never replaced them or the belt. The belt was fine, the motor runs, but its just not picking up anything. So inside the canister was caked with dirt. I mean literally DIRT. Inside the part that spins is another filter. I checked the prices on those. Anywhere between 23.00 up to 50.00. So I took a toothbrush and ran it under hot water. Scaped off all the dirt, let it dry and presto....I have my TWISTER back. YIPPY!!! I can't see spending that much on a filter when all you have to do is scrape the dirt off of it. Works perfectly. Now that I know what to do....I'm a happy camper.
