Take the old bag and take it to a sweeper shop they can match it up but beware of them trying to sell you something you don't need.They will try and sell you a new sweeper cause the bags are no longer available ,let them know up front you just want to match it up and not interested in the new stuff.

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.

Vacuum bag busted


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Yes, you certainly can take off the outer bag of your Oreck and wash it in the washing machine. You DO NOT however want to put the bag through the dryer!!!!! Just hang the bag outside, and let it air dry. It is important to make sure that the bag is 100% completely dry before you use the machine again. If the bag is wet, it will cause dirt to turn to mud in the bag, and probably cause a foul odor when you use the bag.

There are 2 different types of bag systems with Oreck vacuums. The one pictured below is the older style that uses a metal clamp to hold the bag in place. The newer docking system, will be a white plastic clamp that holds the outer bag in place. They both will be removed the same way however. Simply take a screwdriver and pry off the clamp;

Once you have removed this clamp, simply pull the outer bag off. Once it has been washed, and the bag is 100% completely dry, put the outer bag back over the bag housing as far as it will go. When you put the clamp back on, it is imperative that the clamp go behind the plastic ridges, to ensure that it is tightly fastened. If the clamp is not put on correctly, this will cause the inner paper bag to fall off during vacuuming. Make sure that the clamp is in the right position when putting the bag back;

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email them to me. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge an passion about vacuum cleaner, and vacuum repairs. We do stock all Oreck parts, so if you need any parts, please let me know.

No hose suction with replacement bag


The Bag must be blocking the port it connects to. Remove the bag and close it up. Test it again with no bag in it. If you have suction now, the bag is blocking the port. Maybe it is the wrong type, or installed wrong.
