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.

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 :)

Fantom Cyclone wiring


Hi,

The only sure way recommended (and probably the safest) would beto get a service manual or at least a schematic diagram. The FantomCyclone XT was originally manufactured by Fantom Technologies, Inc.that closed in October 2001. The replacement for a Fantom Cyclone XTwould be Westinghouse Wired Deluxe Edition (either a WST1550 or a WST1551). These replacement products are now handled by Salton Inc. Perhaps you may inquire from them:
  • Salton Inc.
  • 1 800 616 8689
  • salton@saltonusa.com
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The top edge pieces will pop off, tabs hold them in place, then you take it apart.

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.
