My fantom thunder vacuum runs great but isn't picking up wand has no suction


It could be one or more problems. The filter is likely clogged. It should be replaced at least once per year if you can find one. Clogged filters greatly reduce airflow which will cause dirt and debris to build up in other areas of the vacuum eventually causing it to have no suction. If you get the suction working make sure to install a new belt if using it on carpeted floors.

My QL60 just stopped sucking. The motor and fan run fine.


If the fan is running there has to be suction. If there is none it is because the air in entering via some other port and bypassing the normal intake. Check it out. Check hoses and fittings.

Why is there NO Suction from brand new Fantom?


some brands have a small plastic piece that slides across the tube/handle and if it is in the wrong position there is no suction to the tube /handle .. Have you thought to call the manufacturer for tech support or warranty .

I have a Fantom Thunder TH469KA and it shuts off after 5-10 min of running How do I fix this?


on all vacuum cleaners the air flow cools the motor. If the filter is sufficiently clogged there would not have enough air flow to cool the motor and trips out from over heat. Clean out the filter thoroughly and try again.

Overheating while vacuuming - 15 mins near new machine. Have checked filters. No change


When we run vacuum cleaner continuously, it gets hot.
So after each 3-4 minutes cleaning, stop it and remove the dust. This will cool the motor and in this way we can use it for a long time. So use vacuum cleaner with breaks.

Vacuum is whistling and there is no suction through the hose.


Sometimes mine "wand" has no suction too. . . Make sure the vacumn column is clicked into the "standing" position, don't have it at an angle. Also you may have to play with the settings on the bottom part AND the power button together. I think this vacumn sucks (pardon the pun) mine turns off after 10 minutes of use, then I let it sit for an hour and then it'll start again. POS!

Series 6500 motor shuts off, vacuum continues to run, not suction


It's tripping the temperature overload in the motor. The most common cause for this is a clogged hose. Take the hose loose and attach it to the exhaust port under the back cover. You should be able to see if it's clogged and unclog it. I might also suggest taking it to your dealer. I don't think that machine's power nozzle should run if the overload is tripped. It sounds like the wiring may have been modified for some reason, but I can't swear to it. Good Luck!!

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.
