Hello. Normally, the answer to replacement power head for any vacuum is yes. However, that company went bankrupt so finding a new head will be a bit of a challenge. I would start calling vacuum cleaner stores and looking on ebay. you will eventually find a new or even a reconditioned power head somewhere. Good luck hunting. Best regards, Joe

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.

Fantom Lighting Power Head


The red light tells you that that there is a clog, either in the hose or down by the brush roll. The smell if it is rubber smelling, then it is the belt and maybe the brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then probably the motor. But parts for these are always available, they went bankrupt several years ago and aren't in business anymore.

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.

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.
