Jae, I tried to find a wiring diagram online but didn't have any luck. Try to follow the directions I left you on the other thread. You probably won't be able to use it a full speed so a speed control will be necesary.

I did just that and it worked. Thanks. But I do need a aftermarket speed control. Will any speed control work now that I have the speed control board out? Thanks for the help.

If your router turns on then any brand controller should work. Harbor Freight has raised their prices but you can get the identical one on Amazon for about the same cost or more depending on the seller. If you have a coupon for Harbor freight then it will still be cheaper and if you don't like it simply take it back. No shipping hassles.

Welcome to the forum Jae.
Thanks to you guys I fixed my router. I highly appreciate the help!!! I bought it in an auction on eBay for $130. I spent $10 at a local repair shop to see what the issue was and then I found you guys. The shop didn’t know anything about bypassing the speed control. Thanks!!

Have anyone had a problem with the clamp on Porter cable 890 clamp stripping?
