Dewalt 625e - advice?
Morning and Seasons Greetings......
I'm looking for some advice from anyone who has had, or owns a Dewalt 625e. Early last summer my 625e developed a fault. It would power up then within seconds power down making a kind of buzzing noise, or if it carried on running would be erratic and hunt like there was no speed control.
I removed the cap to check the brushes which, looked fairly good, I tested the wiring for continuity where I could. Having found no issues I worked on the premise that the speed regulator PCB was at fault. While waiting for the part to arrive I used the opportunity to open the unit up to give it a proper clean, however in the process the magnetic pole end was broken. It was completely seized on there and no amount of gentle even coaxing could persuade it to come off in one piece so I ordered up a replacement.
Putting he router back together I noticed that the new magnetic pole end is too loose - the end of the pole has splines , the new pole end should have a nice tight tolerance fit over those splines - but this is not the case. I have double checked the part number and it is correct, also it is a genuine part but is marked Black and Decker.
Has anyone else come across this?
Many thanks is advance.
