Having problems with your Vacuums ?

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 but cannot see where or how.


Answers :


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!

I have my vacume electrical cord tangled inside and disconnected (I can see the open end of the connection from the power cord collector wheel! I need to take the vacume apart so get access to the wire inside. I need to know if there is something else to open other than the 4 screws. Your help is highly appreciated in advance.

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.

Dear Sir or Madam, I own a black 23 x 47 x 7 mm Rowenta lighter. It has a screw on bottom that I cannot remove. What is it hiding ? Is this lighter refillable ? Is there a flint to replace ?.

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily.
