Hello guys, I have recently bought a Fantom Wildcat that I found on eBay. It is the green teal color and everything is in good condition. The only problem that I have with the machine is the brush roll not engaging when the vacuum is in the brush roll mode when it is reclined. I'm not sure if the belt has worn out or if the brush roll motor has stopped working. How can I wash the other filter, not the electrostatic one. Anyone also have some spare attachments? It just came with a crevice tool.

It likely has a microswitch to detect when the handle is reclined, find where that is and try cleaning the contact points.

Just found out that the brushroll actually spins and it works! Any one got any spare attahcments?
