Craftsman 320.17541 router turning off
Hello all -
Hopefully someone can help me with this issue. I have this soft start single speed router for over a year. Haven't used it much, but it worked fine the first couple of times.
Then it started to do this: When turning it on, it spools up to max speed and then immediately turns off. No load is applied. It was just around a year after purchasing it when it did that for the first time, so I figured I'll get it fixed under warranty. Unfortunately, I tried one more time and it worked fine for a while. Then, a couple of weeks later it started doing it again (now that it is out of warranty). Now it is completely useless.
Soooo... my question is if there is anything I can do besides throwing it in the trash and calling it lessons learned. I have only used it a few times and hate Craftsman/Sears and their POS routers at the moment.
I wouldn't even mind to bypass the soft start feature if this is what messes it up. However, taking it apart I just saw a bunch of cables and not enough info to attempt that. Is there anything I should try, or do you have any pointers on what cables to cross etc to make it work?
Thanks so much in advance,
