Default Bosch 1617 EVS

I've got a 1617 EVS that was dropped a while ago, the base cracked and has since been replaced. Recently while using it, the brushes on 1 side cracked, I replaced them and cleaned up the mess. Now I got nothing, no response to on and off. Any ideas on what the issue may be or how I may go about finding an answer?

If you have an ohm meter check for resistance (router unplugged switch of) across the brushes. If the resistance is very high you have a brush contact problem or an armature problem.

"clean the commentator..."
I've often been tempted.

What do you use to clean the commentator? I have used a pencil eraser to clean the copper plates on a commentator before. You have to be careful to clean out all the rubber pieces but I have never cleaned a router commentator.
