I have the same sweeper as you. I have had this sweeper over 10 years. I purchased it from HSN. Model fm741h. Ok here we go. I paid 299. for it 10 years ago. It worked perfectly. Picked up all sorts of things. It stopped working about 5 years ago. I kept it hoping I could get someone to go over it with a fine tooth comb in my area. No one worked on them. So I still kept it. Just today 09/4/2010 I was looking at it. I decided to start taking the whole unit apart. I come to find out all the filters are clogged. I have never replaced them or the belt. The belt was fine, the motor runs, but its just not picking up anything. So inside the canister was caked with dirt. I mean literally DIRT. Inside the part that spins is another filter. I checked the prices on those. Anywhere between 23.00 up to 50.00. So I took a toothbrush and ran it under hot water. Scaped off all the dirt, let it dry and presto....I have my TWISTER back. YIPPY!!! I can't see spending that much on a filter when all you have to do is scrape the dirt off of it. Works perfectly. Now that I know what to do....I'm a happy camper.

I lost the inner filter that is inside the big filter of the fantom vacuum. What is that part called. the vacuum model # is FM741H


if you have lost it, you really should try EBAY, as for what it is called, even I with my exerience dont remember what exactly it was called. However, you will not find a new one now because that model has not been made since 1999.

Good luck.

My fantom vacuum stopped sucking stuff up


Most likely there is a clog, either in the 'knuckle' between the power head and the wand, or in the connection where the hose comes into the canister. In either case, unplug the hose and you should plainly see it.

Here is the owners manual which goes over some troubleshooting problems.

http://www.fantom.com/fantom/manuals/Cyclone.pdf

At first I would think it was the thermal overload, which is covered in the manual. But I would guess that you have let it sit for 30 minutes to cool down and tried again and the vacuum still didn't work.
I would think you may have one of four problems.
1. Your thermal overload was tripped and is stuck and will need replaced.
2. You have a clog in your vacuum lines or the brush roller is froze, which keeps causing the thermal overload to trip.
3. Your power cord has a short, which would need replaced.
4. Your power switch is bad, which would need replaced.
Out of these 4 possible problems I would say the only one you could fix on your own would be problem #2. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged and take the brush roller off and clean it, make sure it moves free. Check your vacuum lines to make sure you do not have a clog, other wise the motor does not get air flow to cool it down causing the thermal overload to trip. As for problem 1, 3, and 4 I would suggest taking it to a repair shop.
Hope this helps, post back.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The best way is to go the Fantom website that I will include @ the bottom of this response and to see if the website will allow you to download the owner’s manual, or you can call the Fantom Factory / Manufacturer and they will most of the time send you out an owner’s manual to the cust or @ least make copies and mail them to you. You also can check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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.

Fantom Twister


On my fantom cylone I use a 2 foot wire with small hook. Open bottom and push wire up the vacuum channels. There is also a channel that goes to the brush. Check for suction at hose. If none then your one of your channels going up are blocked. If you have suction at hose but none at floor brush then channel to floor brush is plugged.
