Customer Question
I have had a...

I have had a Bosch Router # 1617 EVS fur several years. Recently the on/off switch has been faulty. Half the time I can't get it to go on. When I jiggle it a lot it might go on. Are there any fixes for this problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is probably 10 years old, and the only model # I see is 1617 EVS

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would like to?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
