Question about Bosch Turbo Jet Bagged Upright Vacuum
We cannot disassemble thh Bosch Turbo Jet bagged vacuum to replace the on/off switch. Help!
The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.

My wife picked one up on the side of the road that someone had tossed. The power switch would not turn off. I took the two bolts out of the top part of the handle, and then removed the screws along the back. This will remove the required panels to access the On/Off switch. Once I found the actual on/off button, I found it to be frozen in the "ON" position. After manipulating it for a few minutes, I got the switch to work. This machine now operates great, and I now have a Hoover :)

I had the same problem. I ordered a new switch from a local appliance
place part#417915 (also try 54542), but it can be found on-line for
~$2+shipping. There are 11 screws to remove. Remove all nine screws
that hold on the back of the handle (be sure and get the two under the
attachment holder). Remove the two screw from the front that hold the
top dirt canister retaining bracket. Once you have the back of the
handle off, you can remove the single screw at the top of the handle
that holds on the top front where the switch is. The front will then
The wires are soldered to the switch, and there is absolutely no slack in the wires, so I don't recommend that you cut them. Be very careful with the new switch, since the tabs on back can break off very easily if bent too much (speaking from experience). You might also want to order, and keep and extra switch, around for the next time you need to replace it (it will wear out again).
Instead of soldering the wires to the switch you might want to try using some push on female spade connectors (small), but be sure they are insulated. This will make the next replacement much easier.

open the head. there is a dc 120 v motor with a belt.
check for ac power going in to the rectifier board and dc comming out.
sometimes the black wire breaks inside the motor housing.
it is hard to open and close the motor housing side where the wires run and closing the power head is fun as well.there is a transformer for the light and wires have to be routed just right to close it up.
