Default craftsman 315-17500

I got this router as a gift several years ago, but it's barely used.
As soon as I put a load on it, (even the lightest cut) it shuts down.
Is it worth repairing, or time for a new one?
Thanks

Hi Tony

It's time for a new one,,the older ring type are a real PITA to use plus if you get a new combo set you will have a router that will take on the 1/2" shank bits plus it comes with a plunge base all in one kit. for about 100.oo bucks new in the box.
