Riccar 1700 won't power on, outlet is working, no


Hi,

If this problem happened after you replaced the filters, check that the filters have been installed correctly because some filters have sensor magnets installed on them and unless they are in their correct position, the machine wont power on.

I hope this helps you

On button won't stay depressed. when pushed to on, the vaccuum goes on but won't stay on unless button is held down.


Needs a new on/off switch. You can order one from an appliance parts store, and replace it yourself or take it to a shop.

This is normally caused by restricted airflow, causing the heat sensor switch to trip. Please make sure the hose and bag are not clogged, verifying you have good suction and airflow to the hose end when you initially turn it on. The heat sensor switch is intended to shut off the motor if sufficient cooling air is not present.

Riccar 1700 power nozzle wont turn on


Make sure the 'Power brush' switch on the contol panel on the hose is depressed. Check the circuit breaker on the power nozzle; it will either be a button or a breaker that looks like a rocker switch, try to reset it.
Is the power nozzle motor running but the brush just isn't turning? If so you may have a broken belt. Not a likely solution since the belt is a lifetime belt, but still remotely possible.

The hoover keeps switching on and off automatically.


Sounds to me like there is either a loose wiring in the pedal or mains power cord. Check that the plug is secure. Check both filters though - one behind the bag (usually square and slides out) as well as the main exhaust filter at the back between the power on and cord rewind button. I used to own many Telios models but they are known to have cheap shearing cords which can only be replaced by a Hoover repairer. Sometimes the On pedal can be affected as well particularly if it has been stamped on heavily.

Hoover Telios TC3202 200W Cord Rewind is jammed - cannot see how to open body of vacuum to look at the source of the problem. Found 4 screws but that did not help - guess you have to prise something open...



There are many models of the Hoover Telios. This solution applies to the T5603 at least, but perhaps not to all models... sorry, I don't know about the others. 

Anyway, this is it. The cover is held to the base by 8 screws. Two are clearly visible near the handle, two are in the bag compartment. They are easy!  The problem is finding the others, because they are concealed by the foot-operated switch plates, and you have to get those plates off without breaking them.   
Basically, those plates slide off backwards (i.e. away from the handle end) but you have to release a plastic catch first.  The catch is part of the switch-plate, and is located roughly mid-way along the straight side of the plate, just by the raised bump.  You can just see the catch if you shine a torch light down the gap.  The catch is released by inserting a small screwdriver or other flat blade and levering it away from the centre-line of the machine.  If you apply gentle rearward pressure on the plate while doing this, you will soon feel when it's released. 
Once the catch is released, the plate will slide off completely and the remaining four screws are revealed.  After that, it's simple! 
Hope this helps!

Vacuum won't stay on

I think the switch is broken--it will come on, but the switch does not stay engaged. I'd like to try to fix myself, if possible. Any thoughts?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Hoover Telios Canister Vacuum Powerteam
When you uninstalled the switch did you mark the wires to duplicate the procedure in re- installing the part, it is possible that you have a bad switch, please check your owner’s manual for the trouble shooting guide to see what you might have done wrong. If the switch is wired correctly it should work, but one wire could be off and not connected correctly then the switch will not work. Feel free to contact 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.

My Hoover is picking dust , very poorly


The Telios has a bad design on the handle and it sounds like something has definately got stuck. Unfortunately the nature of the cheap European design means the handle can only be removed by someone who owns a vice in their garage without breaking the removal points. Alternatively find a long bamboo stick or pole to put inside the hose mount which connects normally from the main bin of the Telios (not the other way around up the handle) which has no sharp edges and push up and down vigourously to dislodge any clogged dirt which may have inadverntely got stuck either by the handle or in the hose itself.

Another thing to do is to check the suction from the Telios itself by removing the hose. If there is suction coming from the main dirt bag/bin door with the hose removed then there is no problem other than a clogged hose and handle. Hoover updated the handle and hose in 1999 and spares can be found by looking on Ebay.co.uk for cheaper prices.
