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!

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.

There are two main filter outlets on the Telios. One behind the dust bag inside the vacuum (white felt with a black carbon layer usually - or a HEPA paper cartridge that slides right in at the back, though the HEPA filter cuts the suction power considerably, so just get the carbon type with the white felt if you can). The main motor filter at the top is between the power pedal and cord rewind. This is usually a 7 layer microfilter, but you can use any filter such as universal cut to fit types or even a Dyson DC01 filter that has been cut to size.

Hoover telios 1600 dismantling


Remove the 4 screws in the Dust Bag compartment.

Remove the Power button and Cord-rewind botton. This involves using a screwdriver or knife to open/undo a plastic clip located under the bittons near the gril in the top-centre-back of the hover.
When holding the clip back, slide the button towards the bottom of the hover (IE: away from the bag compartment) till it pops out (this can be fiddley).
This will then reveal 4 more screws (within the springs and near the grill).

Then prise the hover open to reveal the motor and power-switch.

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.

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.
