Get Bosch to send you a new switch

The original switch was unsealed and the cooling fan caused suction on the back of the switch pulling dust into the switch until filled and stopped the contacts from mating. My router is table mounted so the cutting is above the sw and everything falls past it. If you use it handheld with the cutting below, the original switch may never have the problem.
I got quite good at taking the switch apart and cleaning it about every 4-6 weeks. Bosch seems to have been using a better switch since this summer. Their rep sent me one even though the router was over a year out of warranty. Looks like it will do the job, but haven't been using it long enough to tell.
Part# was 2-610-913-918-879
