Hi Margo,
please also check the tiny microswitch on the the side that it gets activated when placed on the pails top. there is a little button there.

May i find the switch first? Where exactly is it? I will upload machine?


Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Hi Margo, if your unit has one it looks like a small slit on the bottom side. If not the you may have one with a bad motor.

Hello Michael


The machine has no switch where you indicated. How can I have a "bad motor" with so little use? I have contacted Bosch to see if they have insights.

Hi dies your unit sit on a basket they provide?
usually for safety there is a switch, and sometimes the pit that needs to go into it it make it work, will get damaged.
But the motor could have jut been bad , these things happen.
Thank you Margo for your patience.
I will stick with you it costs you nothing more to rate it just locks us in so your question wont time out is all.
