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 'snap' off.
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.

can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck

Filter mesh holder is damaged, locking holes are broken will not lock in place - need new filter mesh


Hi Joe: The model has been discontinued and difficult to find replacement parts. I located a few online suppliers offering a HEPA Filter that fits the BUC11700UC. See here:

http://www.vacuumcleaners.net/bosch-buz200hcuc-hepa-filter-for-bagless-jet-upright.html or

http://www.allergybegone.com/boshepfilfor4.html or

http://www.wikio.com/product/vacuum-parts-accessories-compatible_with_bosch-reviews-12020-page3-sort0.html

Is this the part you are looking for? The third site above does offer other replacement parts if you are looking for a different filter piece.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Smelly Animal Bagless Dyson


You've cleaned up urine...somehow. To remove that odor, go to a local flea mkt or store that sells essential oils and buy "Citronella" (smells awesome) 1/2-1oz. bottle will last forever. Add 4-5 drops to the paper filter element - smell gone!
Good Luck

Burning smell coming from vacuum


use a penny to turn the 2 screws on top a quater turn then fold down the vacuum and lift up the cover and you will have access to the belt. Clean the small hepa filter with soapy water. their may be 2 of them. The cannnister filters need to be shaken but not washed. Good luck.

Bosch vacuum Motor turns off after a few minutes


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

Dog smell after cleaning


This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units. They are easier to clean and the odors go out with the bag. About the only thing you can do is put a deodorizer in the machine and keep the filter clean. Be careful not to use petroleum based deodorizers as they can affect the plastic.
