Default Freud FT2000E problem

I have an older Freud I use in one of my tables. It now doesn't want to start all the time. Sometimes it will spin up to speed and then slow down. It seems to have a problem holding higher rpm. All this is with no load. The brushes are poor but not cracked etc. One of the brush leads is frayed. Was wondering if I need to replace the brushes and or the switch? Also, where to get such parts.

I suggest that you call the Freud Power Tool Parts and Repair department at (800) 334-4107 (option 2). They can offer advice and you can purchase parts directly.

Default Many thanks!

Wow. Fast response. I hope to enjoy this forum more (once I finish the Padauk master bath vanity and my my wife's dream Bubinga kitchen cabs).

thanks again

Unhappy Same FT2000E Issue

I too have a 2000E router that has developed this low, or unstable, RPM problem. I did check the brushes and even swapped them from one side to the other, but the problem still exists. I am thinking it might be the electronic speed control module.

Did you get your issue resolved? What was the final solution? Thanks in advance for your time and assistance. drbinne

Hi Toolman -
I'm not familiar with the FT2000E, but it "smells" like the electronic speed control output voltage is wavering. But I did want to jump in and welcome you. Come back often.
