Default Blown motor?

I have an old Sears Craftsman Router #315.17350 and I believe I just fried the motor. It sparked blue and green, then I saw smoke and smelt burnt plastic. And now it won't turn on. I was wondering if anyone had a replacement, or if they knew what I could do to save it?

Hi Chancep - Welcome to the forum
Sorry to hear about the loss. Does sound like time to give it last rites. About the only suggestion I would have would be to try to score something on eBay. I checked Sears parts and some very minor (brush holders, screws, washers, etc) parts are still available but most parts have been discontinued. About the best suggestion I can think of is to start haunting Craigs List, eBay, pawn shops, Goodwill, etc. Anyplace that may have used tools. It's an old router so there is likely one out there. Your other option would be to go shopping for a new one. I think you will be surprised at what can be had anymore for some reasonable money if you shop.
Good Luck and, once again, welcome.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
