About 1-2 seconds. The vacuum is about 14 months old.

Thank you for that. This problem is a bad motor. Whats happening is that the thermal cut out or(fuse) as you might call it keeps tripping because of a bad motor winding that has shorted and is drawing too much current.

I would contact Bosch about this since it is so new. They may fix this free, they are usually pretty good about that.

Its best to use the phone # in the user manual and on the warranty card for fastest results.

If you need more info please let me know.

I wish I had better news for you on this, I really do.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
