Default Freud Collet Stuck

I have a 3-1/4 hp Freud router. I have a hard time removing the 1/2 shank bit after I'm finished. The nut is completely off the mounting threads. Do I use some type of lube? The collet is clean and free of rust.
Thanks,
Texastom

Hi Tom

Take the nut down to the store and have them replace it, NO lube, if the nut is not damage the bit should come right out, in fact the nut is made to lift the bit a little bit so it's free..if someone put a wrench on the nut without a bit in place it will deform the nut just that little bit..and you will get that error.

Thanks,
I compared the nut to a working unit. The collet does not snap into the "bad" nut.
Looks like my collets are ok, it's the nut that's worn.
Thanks,
