Question about Bosch BSG81360UC Premium Health Guard Bagged Canister Vacuum
The green power light is on, the beater bar head will run, but the suction motor will not start. This machine appears to have no motor reset that we can see...
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

I have the same problem with mine -- precisely the same model BSG 81335UC. It feels like the power button switch isn't working properly.
