Default Having problem with Triton TRA-001 router

It is a pleasure to finally join this forum. I have a problem that I am stumped with. I bought a brand new Triton Tra router used only twice and I am running a White Side flush trim 2" cutting length, 1/2" cutting diameter, 1/2" shank bit. The problem that I am having is at medium to high rpms the router is making a noise for example when you make your car engine top out and hit the rev limiter the rpms jump up and down like something is slipping. Its making poor cut quality and the bit is jumping. I have also tried a CMT 2" length bit and smaller bits and having same problem. What could be wrong with the router? Forgot to mention I am running this router in a router table. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi N/a. welcome to the forum.

If that happens with any variable speed router, it may indicate a faulty speed controller.

As the router is new, I would take it back to the store for checking.

I take it you have checked to make sure the router is screwed into the mounting plate securely. Remove the bit and try a different bit if you have one to see if you still have the noise. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Table Mounted? If not, probably a good idea for that bit.
Too deep of cut. Make cut in several shallow passes.
Only bit you are having trouble with? Possible bad bit.
Feed direction?

Then if all else fails, possibly a bad speed controller in the router, but I'd think that to be somewhat unlikely. Possible though.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

It does it with other bits as well and yes it is table mounted. It starts out running fine for about 1 min and then it goes into vibrating mode where it makes a ru-ru-ru-ru-ru-ru sound like a engine maxed out with the rev limiter on. Its brand new only used a couple times but did it from very start. I called Triton today and they will be calling me back. I kinda hope it's the speed controller because that's an easy fix. Thank you all for your quick responses I appreciate it.

Check it on another circuit see if it does the same thing, may not be enough amps.

No go still doing it. It's weird because when I take the router out of the table it doesn't do it. When I put it back in the router table it takes about 2min and it starts its vibrating. I'm kinda leading towards the speed control. I wont take up anymore time because I could keep this thread going for a very long time. Thanks everybody for your time and help. I'm just glad I signed up with the router forum. And if I cant get this Triton to work ill just have to switch brands which would be a bummer. thanks again.
