Mounted in a table. I wanted to remove the motor to clean saw dust out of the base that was causing the up and down movement sluggish. I followed the procedure for removing the motor but when it gets to the end of its travel it just seems to hit a stop or something. I don't want to force it, but I tried twisting the motor to see if it needed to slide into a slot but it won't budge. There is a bit of free travel between when it hits the stop and when it disengages from the rack.

Any ideas. I've had it out once before and don't remember and problems.

WElcome to the forum.

That seems to be a fairly common complaint for that router, but I was not able to see a solution.

Can you take it out of the table and stand it 'right way up'?

Yes, that seems to be my next move. Going to be away for a week, so it will have to wait till I get back.
That's right! I had two table mounted and had the same problem with both. You have to remove it, blow it out with air, particularly around the screw gear and half nut strip, and slowly blow air around the housing while unscrewing the motor from the base with the fine adjuster. The problem is the half nut strip gets clogged with dust and won't clear the housing.
