Fantom Canister Vacuum parts

Hi Domvac. 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.

Hi I was wondering if you could tell me the 'mother'company who makes Fantom vacuums? We are looking at the Fantom Power Pet bagged canister 12 amps. do you have any feedback or helpful information on...


Hi Leslie,

The mother company is Euro-Pro or Shark.

My feeling from a service aspect, they are pretty cheap units, and when it comes time for a service, they are a little expensive to fix. You would be better off with another brand, such as Hoover or Eureka. That is my personal opinion and mostly because those two brands are using universal parts.

Good luck.

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 lightning vacuum model LC 51


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.

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.
