Default Bosch 1613EVS Thermal Fuse or Jam?

Hi,

I've been working with my Bosch 1613EVS. While incrementally making deeper plunge cuts, I foolishly started the router while in the groove. The router didn't complain too much, tried to start, jammed, then stopped. I can't get it to start now.

Is there a thermal switch in the unit that can get reset?

Thanks for your time.

J

Welcome to the forum Joel. Routers don't have thermal switches. There is more than one reason not to start a router in the cut. You know one of them now. If something seems like it might be a bad idea it usually is. When you're not sure what to do come here and ask for help.
I would suggest you take it to a repair shop and see what they say but it doesn't sound good.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Joel. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Can you still turn the collet? If so, then nothing broke inside and jammed things up. I'm pretty sure there is no "switch" but there might be an internal fuse. Some tools will have one, not sure about your Bosch. Not difficult to take apart if you have a little knowledge of "how things work". If not, as Charles suggested, a repair shop might be in order.

or by imbeciles who really mean it.

You can google for an exploded view of the router and see what's inside. Here's a link I found that includes the drawing and parts list. Lots of parts are no longer available. Bosch 1613EVS Parts List and Diagram - (0601613734) : eReplacementParts.com

Joel; if there is a thermal protection device (and there should be!) it should automatically reset as it cools. If for some strange reason the design included a fuse, it would be for overload protection rather than thermal. A jammed bit would quickly lead to damage to the windings.
Do you have a meter to test for continuity? The repair bill will quickly eat up the difference between a repaired old router and a spanking new one...

Dan, NO tool manufacturer I know of incorporates automatic overload resets in their equipment, for obvious reasons. A piece of equipment starting on it own could be very dangerous. There may be some that do use inline fuses of some kind.

Dick; sorry, miscommunication. Not resettable overload (is that a word?)... resettable thermal protection.
You may well be correct. I certainly have experience frying a Makita grinder that didn't have any thermal protection. Melted the plastic bearing mounts. I was very unhappy with the Makita service guys...they thought I should somehow have just known that the grinder was overheating(?!)...
Last Makita tool I ever bought.

Dick, I was thinking about what you said. Isn't it almost universal that when the power is off the trigger must be reactivated to energize the motor?
I remember the good old days when you plugged in a belt sander and it would try to set a new land speed record...
