Default THE FIX for these is.......

It's NOT dust or dirt inside. These are notorious for not being adjustable straight outta the box. The black plastic housing on the motor is a few thousandths too large & bind up too easily. The only solution is to 'turn down' the diameter of that motor housing w/ sandpaper. Long tedious process but does 'fix' the problem w/ these routers so they work like they should. A couple of hours & works like new or it 's supposed to.
