Default Hitachi M12v (table mounted)

Haven't used my router for several months. Set it up for a job today. It wouldn't start.
I think it might have something to do with the brushes, but last I used it,was working great.
Suggestions as to the cause?
Thanks

Thanks. Outlets not the problem. I've heard that electrical tools that are left sitting for some time develop "flat-spots" in the apparatus and this causes malfunction. I have no idea
how you would test for this.

Hi

" "flat-spots" " not the norm, I would blow out the router and the switch..if it will not run after,,take out the brushes with care,the plastic caps do like to break easy...blow them out well.and replace them the same way..they do make some contact cleaner that you can get from the auto parts store or the hardware store, spray just a little bit in the brush holder hole,,turn the motor by hand and try it one more time..be sure it's unplugged when you work on the router..

Thanks Bobj3. I'll give that a try. Hope it works---no service within 50 miles.
