Bosch UM-3 switch problem

Aloha,


I have an elderly Bosch UM-3 which is a real workhorse.  But suddenly neither the pulse mode or speed 2 is working.  Has anyone ever tried to replace the switch in one of these mixers?  I hate to part with it since the motor still seems to be working well.  And no, there's no dealer nearby...(!-!)

I found this link originally posted here by LindyD (Thanks!) for a company that sells parts for this mixer and many others, and according to her original post, they also fix them.  I see they carry the switch for $14.99.  I have a Bosch myself, and they appear to be pretty straight forward to take apart, although I have never had to do so.  Mine has screws on the bottom to start the process, and I bet there is not a great deal "under the hood" to make it complicated.


Good Luck
