    Thanks for the dismal outlook which sure does make my plight even more of a dilemma.

    I had the same problem recently. I got a tube of construction adhesive and glued it back together. I then reinforced with a couple of metal mending braces and 3/8 screws I had lying around. I finished off with some cable ties and duct tape for effect. Its been about a month and its still running. Good luck!

You're not going to like this. That company went bankrupt and parts are no longer available. You might be able to find a good used part, but it's been quite a while since the company closed and most parts have been used up. That connector was a problem and was prone to breaking. I think it may be time for a new vacuum. Sorry.

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 Vacuum powder head Parts


In Canada I don't know. Parts for the older Fathoms are getting scarce. There is a wholesaler here in the US that has parts, but you have to be a repair shop to buy from them and I don't know if they are in Canada. Call your local repair shops to see if they can get you that circuit board, the co. name here is Essco, or Electric Sweeper Service Co. Wish I could help more.

Very likely it's the cord at the nozzle neck. These cords flex when you vacuum and they often break internally where the cord goes into the neck. Turn the vacuum on and wiggle the cord at the powerhead and see if the powerhead comes on and off. If this happens, then you will have to replace the cord.
On some of the early models, the receptacle in the hose, where it plugs into the top of the wands, will break away from the plastic pins it sits in, and the receptacle will slide back into the handle, which means that it will not plug into the powerhead connection when you connect the hose. You can check this by looking at the end of the hose and observing if the receptacle is sitting flush with the opening it sits in. If it is pushed back, it will not make a complete connection with the powerhead cord that is sitting at the top of the wands.

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.
