You will need to contact a vacuum store. The Fantom company went bankrupt years ago and the parts are no longer available. As far as I know, these machines have not been on the market for a long time. I strip these units for any usable parts and hang on to them for this type of situation, but slowly, I've been throwing these parts out, as no one is asking for them. You should consider buying a new vacuum. Stay away from the big box store models. Your best option is to go to a vacuum store. They know what is the best unit for the price and any reputable store won't sell junk. Sorry, but your vacuum is at the end of it's road.

Need a new power head


your best bet would be to try Ebay or something like that. These units were discontinued late 1999/early 2000 and no parts are available for it.

my best suggestion in this case is to invest what you would spend on the powerhead into a newer cannister. Some of the newer units have better filtration and suction than the lightning cannister does.

Need 3' stick of plastic between vac head and vac switch. Lower end of stick will not stay in head.


Hello,

Unfortunately the Fantom vacuum company has gone out of business, and no parts are available any more for these machines. Actually James Dyson (Dyson Vacuums) had some part in this company, and due to poor designs (mostly in their uprights) the company didn't last and ended up bankrupt.

You may be able to find someone selling the machine on Ebay, but other then this the only parts that are still available are aftermarket filters, and belts.

I hope this helped you,

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.
