Hey guys first time on here. my buddy gave me a sears router 315. 17480 and it’s been sitting for a while. it runs only the first trigger pull until the motor stops spinning and then I have to unplug and let it sit for a while and it will start again. Any ideas

If you've used it for awhile, you might need to use compressed air to blow out the sawdust, which may have gotten into the trigger switch. Clean out the brushes as well.
