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.

SOURCE: Poor suction-need to know how
I assume this is a Hoover Bagless, if poor suction, the hose or dirt inlet by the brush roll may have a clog. The filter inside the dirt container may need replacement. Some had a screw to take out to remove the cover for the filter, the one under where hte dirt container sits. Alos the belt may be stretch and won't turn the brush roll under load. Having the model number would help.

I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.
Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.
Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

I had a similar problem. Two things to try. There is a lock symbol on the canister you need to ling it up with the mark on the top (the silver part has a line on it). It can be assembles 3 different ways. Also I over looked the sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating a filter in the top of the canister compartment. There is an orange lever there to release the filter. Hope this helps.
