Fantom Canister Vacuum parts
Posted by jaybird73 on Jun 30, 2008
Hi, Don. I'm in need of a part for my Fantom Canister. It's a little difficult for me to describe but here goes...the part is the small metal "pins" that are found in the connection between the hose and the motorized floor attachment. There are normally 2 found in that area, they are about an inch long and I guess they pass the electricity between the hose and attachment. Any help is appreciated.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sound so me that it could be a lower wand with the pins in the end or the part of the power nozzle and the part that the lower wand fits into is called the gooseneck and that can be replaced as well. If it is part of the hose then you may have to replace the hose and that could be expensive or over $100.00 or more, as an estimate. The best place to get the information is the owner’s manual under trouble shooting or to cal the Fantom factory of which I will provide for you @ the bottom; or your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg
fantombeltchange3.jpg

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.

SOURCE: Tube to Fantom Thunder canister blocked

I cut a strip of window screen about 1 inch wide and 12 inches long and slid it up the tube from the back of the vacuum. The screen edges grabbed the gunk and as I pulled the screen strip out from the tube the gunk came with it, clearing the blockage.

SOURCE: Kenmore central vacuum has great suction however

Is it a bagless/ filterless system? if so the unfiltered air goes through the motor and is ehausted out. All of the older systems from kenmore i have seen worked like this and must be ehausted outside. I will say that this is a terrable design because the dust going through the motor is **** on it. I would replace the entire tank with a bagged or at least filtered system. Nutone or Hayden would be my first choice. You can always vent it outside to help, but that isn't going to make your motor last.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Most power heads have some screws from the bottom to take out, the the top comes off, then you can get to the belt.

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.
