Bosch is aware of the switch problem on the router and will send you a new switch for nothing. I have two 1617s one that does have the problematic switch. It actually is not at all difficult to clean out the sawdust, and can be done in about 15 minutes. You will need a torx head screw driver to take the top cover off, and a flat head screw driver (a small one) to pry the switch apart. Be very careful with this as there are several small parts including a spring that is easily lost.
