If no luck there, any power switch from another 120V product should work as long as the wires match. If you have a normal 2 wire switch, you should be fine. Be sure the amps on the new switch match the old and the terminals are the same size (don't try to force a small terminal onto a large one). Also, be sure that if you use another switch, be sure the terminals are wrapped or protected to keep them from shorting out if they were to fall off. With a little plastic modification, you sure can fit a square switch into a round hole lol. Good luck.

My Fantom Lightning canister vacuum won't turn on at all, worked fine last time I used it.


You need to turn over and remove the case to get to the motor.When you get to the motor you will see a white wire going to the motor from the switch,it has a white cover over the wire,pull this cover back and there is a small fuse that is probably blown.You can check this with a electrical tester.If this is not blown the heat sink that is connected to the fuse may be bad.These parts can be found at Radio Shack.

How do i replace the belt in the Fantom Cyclone XT vacuum


remove the covers over the headlights and under the shiny foul. there are two screws. there are two tabs that hold down the cover over the wheels, they just pop on/off with a click.
on my xt. i had to remove the rolling brush and clean out all the hair that was stuck in the bearings. remove the screw holding down the motor and belt. pry out the roller brush to get to the bearings. there was some serious hair ball in there.
reassembled mine and it works perfectly now :)

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.

You will need to contact a vacuum store. The Fantom company went bankrupt years ago and the parts are no longer available. As far as I know, these machines have not been on the market for a long time. I strip these units for any usable parts and hang on to them for this type of situation, but slowly, I've been throwing these parts out, as no one is asking for them. You should consider buying a new vacuum. Stay away from the big box store models. Your best option is to go to a vacuum store. They know what is the best unit for the price and any reputable store won't sell junk. Sorry, but your vacuum is at the end of it's road.
