Question about Bosch BUC11700UC Cyclone Jet Bagless Upright Vacuum
The motor will turn on at first and work but then turns off after a few minutes. It is still getting power because the headlights stay on. Any ideas?
It sounds like you have a motor protection fuse that resets after an overheat/cooling cycle.These work the same as a circuit breaker in your house with the difference being they can reset themselves.The Bosch will also shut down if there is insufficient airflow and I would check your filters first.1) Pull the filter and let the machine run.Do not pick up debris when you operate without a filter-it will be drawn straight into the motor.If it runs fine without shutting down, all you need to do is change your filter.If it shuts down again check the external hose for any blockages.Also check the throat from the powerhead for any blockages.If you continue to have the same problem then you will need to replace the fuse because at this point you have eliminated all the other likely problems.Good Luck-Scott

My vacuum has the same problem when the filter needs to be cleaned. Just twist the filter cover to take it off, then press the red button on top of the canister to release the filter and pull it out. Fine particles of dust collect on the filter causing the motor to overheat and shut off. Take an old toothbrush and clean the filter. Install it once you're done, and the vacuum should work fine.
