Question about Hoover Telios Canister Vac Vacuum

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.

What can I do to fix Panasonic vacuum MC-V7395 that will not stay locked in upright position?


Most vacuums have plastic tabs and a plastic mechanism of some sort to that will engage those tabs to make it stay upright.
I am suggesting either the tabs are worn down, or are broken off, or maybe the locking mechanism is broken.
These parts are most often not replaceable, unless you can find an identical machine with these still good on it, and swap whatever parts are necessary to fix it.
Machine is a "throwaway " model.
When it breaks, you are expected to buy a new one.
God bless your efforts.

Vacuum won't stay in the upright position


I believe you have a broken handle release pedal. It make look intact, but if you turn it over and look where the lever is fastened to the body, it should protrude out another inch to an inch and a half. If you don't see this, then the plastic "spring" part of the lever has broken off; this is what forces the lever to stay up. the part for the Helix should be # 203-2463 and should be under $10.

My Kirby G3 diamond series won't turn on


Hi There, The most common problem by far is that the cord is faulty. This is a pretty easy repair to do at home. If your machine was randomly cutting out before it stopped altogether then the cord is likely the culprit. If however it stopped all of a sudden with no warning then it is possibly a switch or motor issue which is a much harder repair to achieve for a novice.
The kirby cords are not terribly expensive (and I have linked a how to video showing how its done) so if you need a new one I would say DIY is the go, otherwise spend the $25 get a pro to take a look.

The power button on my Dyson DC19T2 won't stay on


The switch is broken. If you are handy, remove the old switch and match it up at a hardware store or a Vacuum repair shop. It shouldn't cost much to have it replaced by a proffessional either.

I have an electrolux discovery II vacuum cleaner and the floor function works, but when I try to switch over to carpet mode, it doesn't seem to engage.


There is a red reset button on the back of the machine. When it trips, the brush won't engage. Press the reset button and then try your machine again.

Dyson won't go back into upright position to engage suction


The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.
