SOURCE: sanyo vacuum cleaner bag
We have the Sanyo Transfomax 3 in 1 vacuum and FINALLY found that one has to use a screwdriver at the edges of the "hand hold" just above the Sanyo name (between black and green parts), to pop open the cleaner in order to replace the bag or clean the filter.
What a miserable way to change a bag!
I know this is almost a year late...but I just found your request. Ta ta, Rita

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,
It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.
Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.
Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.
Here's the link;
Please let me know if you have any other questions,

Got this post off this web site...I just replaced my swivel and it worked:
To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.

Hi! Sometimes really hard to remember which of these models is which, so please forgive me if this is not a complete solution. I'm pretty sure you will find there are two filters. The first is a foam filter, and is located at the bottom of the bag compartment. It pulls out to the front, and is washable (of course it must be completely dry before re-use). The second (and here I'm on less secure ground) is a HEPA filter, and is located behind a removable panel on the front of the bag compartment door. The HEPA filter is not washable, but rarely if ever needs to be changed unless the machine has been used for vacuuming a lot of extremely fine dust. I hope this helps, and I value your feedback. Please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

I just replaced the belt on my Everstar VC-9550 and it works fine. I found it at Home Depot for $3.99. The belt is sold under Vac Belts item No. 51007 (Designed to fit Bissell Uprights, Style 7,9,10).
