Question about Fantom Vacums FM760 Twister 500DX Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Telescopic handle I don't think I have the exact same vacuum, although mine is a fantom upright bagless. I can't get the telescopic handle to stay in place. It pulls out whenever I try to pull back the vacuum. Any tips would be helpful! Thank you

Re: telescopic handle

Sometimes the locking mechanism for the wand wears out, make sure u have it all the way in and look where it locks and see if it looks worn

Not picking up, not getting any suction.

try to clean the filter out. I have a similar vacuum and I clean mine out and wash the filter out. Leave the filter to dry overnight before you use it again.

If this fails try figure out if there is something blocking it so it is not able to **** in air. message back if this does not work.

Also take the bottom off and look for obstruction and anything that is not in place

My vacuum (Eureka Bagless Model 2961 AVZ) will not START!

Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893 bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, and finally it just quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was toast. Ordered a switch after talking to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to find a switch. has switches, so you might try there, but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's Genesis). It is Part #27871.
