Default Seizing to exist...

I bought this router that came with table and bits so for the price I can't say I'm that disappointed. Although the thrifty side of me is curious. I have a Craftsman router, believe it to be a 315 series. Don't have it in front of me so not certain on the model number. Anywho, I was doing some dovetail work when it began to lose power. The switch on the handle is somewhat faulty but not the cause of this issue. After wrapping up shop last night I grabbed the paperwork that I got with the router and saw something about brush replacement. I'm hoping that I can save this router and continue to use it. Does this sound like it is fixable?

Fixable? Yes. Brushes are more than likely the cause. Since you said the switch is faulty, best to replace both brushes and the switch at once and have a fairly new router again.
