You should consider contacting the seller. It may be used, but sellers may not pass off broken items as functional. Ebay will guarantee your purchase.Thanks everyone!
That's what I was thinking, but it's great to get advice from ones who have walked a little farther down this road!
I am going to bypass the controller, check the brushes and see what happens.
I am setting up shop and wanted a good workhorse in my router table I just built. Bought this M12v2 off Ebay, I wasn't too surprised to find this problem. But the seller never mentioned this issue!
