The type of bagless that has sharp turns in the hose and plastic parts are easy to become stopped up. You have to follow the path of the air flow to find the blockage.

you should change out filters every three to six months depending on use

try to clean the filter out. I have a similar vacuum and I clean mine out and wash the filter out. Leave the filter to dry overnight before you use it again.

If this fails try figure out if there is something blocking it so it is not able to **** in air. message back if this does not work.

Also take the bottom off and look for obstruction and anything that is not in place

I had this problem once too. When the hose is inserted into the vacuum, the floor unit (where the spinning brushes are) becomes the head of the vacuum. In other words, the suction goes through the floor part and then up through the hose and into the vacuum. If the suction is good when the hose is out, the the problem is blockage at the bottom piece. Take the cover off of the rollers (it is one screw then it pops right off) and see if there is a bunch of lint/hair/gunk blocking the suction hole. You could also take the hose part out of the vacuum and look down the empty shaft with a flashlight and see if you see anything there. Hope this helps!

Sounds like the motor is overheating and thermalling out (Hight Temp shut down). This could be caused by overfilled cannister, obstructed passageways, or debris accumulated around the motors cooling fan. Try emptying the catch container and blow out / clean all the filters. Check for obtructions by going to the hose mode and alternately blocking and uncovering the nozzle end - feel for good suction and listen for a definite change in motor sound (Pitch Change) With the intake open, the motor should rev freely, when blocked it will slow and sound labored / loaded down. Another possible cause could be a binding brush roller overloading the motor - but this will usually burn out the belt first. Notice any unusual smells? Burned belts stink like burnt rubber.

could be the cord, switch or the motor
check them with a ohm meter

Take off the bottom plate (where you would access the belt). Put the wheel
back on, put the screw back in the wheel and looking from the underside
of the vacuum you can see the screw. You need a bolt and preferably a
lock washer and that should hold it for you.

The machine is made to be disposable. Look for a used part at local vac shop.

sometimes the locking mechanism for the wand wears out, make sure u have it all the way in and look where it locks and see if it looks worn

Fantom Vacums... • Answered on Jan 21, 2008


You can call your manufacturer of the vaccuum cleaner and get some help. Or try unplugging it and turn it upside down and beging taking it apart. Take the brush out and then work your way to the motor. There maybe something lodged up in by the brush. Also check in the bag department and look in the hole where the bag is installed. You may have some luck there. Good luck.
