Re: 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 for cheaper prices.

Suction not working on vaccuum.

Check for a blockage in the hose, or a tear / hole in the hose between the "pleats"

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.

Well the hoover seems to be sucking in very poorly and nothing off the floor is being sucked up. how can i make it stronger suction?

u need to make sure that the dust collector is empty and any filters fitted are clean and check the hoover belt if fitted is working

Hoover hygiene- how full does the bag get before the light goes on. I have been vacuuming every week for 3 months and the light hasn't gone on yet.

They usually pack the dirt in pretty tight! You can always check that the light is working by blocking the suction with your hand - if the light doesn't come on you need to get it serviced.

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.
Dont forget to rate, ty.

Sounds like on/off switch, but need to meter out to check.
