Default Craftsman Router Electronic Control Board

Hello Everyone,
What a great sit. My 2 year craftsman router will not work. The light turns on but it doesn't work. I was adjusting the rpm's and it died. I am pretty sure I need an new circuit board. I cleaned and dusted all the part under the cap. Of course these circuit boards are discontinued. What should I do? Here is the router model number 320.27683. The part number is Part #: 4900046000. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Maybe trying to bypass the circuit board?

Bypassing is probably your best bet. If you need speed control you can go with an external one as long as it doesn’t have soft start and that doesn’t get bypassed too if it does.

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.
