Bosch POF 1400 ACE Router Locking Lever Problem

8203 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  harrysin
Hello all,

I was trying to work with my router yesterday when I started experiencing problems with the router unlocking from the set depth back to full retraction. This happened a number of times despite the locking lever being locked all the way.

I checked the screw holding the lever in place and it was secure, the spring seems fine, so I don't know what the cause is or how to fix it. Many years out of warranty..

Anyone else had this problem? I hope there is an easy fix.

I have a Bosch 1200 AE which is practically the same router, if you undo the screw that holds the locking mechanism lever in place you will find a brass hex headed screw/plug, you can turn the screw/plug clockwise a little and replace the lever in a "tighter" setting so the lever locks harder, maybe the locking mechanism has become worn a little and will no longer hold.

Look at the bottom left with the number 801 above it to see how it works:
