Having problems with your Fantom Vacums Lighting Canister Vacuum ?

My fantom vacuum stopped sucking stuff up

\015 My Fantom vacuum sounds and looks like its working but it won't **** anything up, I used to have to empty the canister daily, but now its always empty. What should I do? I tried taking it apart a couple times but can't find the problem. Ive had it for a few years and its never done this before. It seems like there should be a simple solution i just don't know what it is, please help!\015

Answers :

Most likely there is a clog, either in the 'knuckle' between the power head and the wand, or in the connection where the hose comes into the canister. In either case, unplug the hose and you should plainly see it.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?
