Welcome to the forum Matt. You can find schematics and parts here usually OEM Replacement parts for Tools, Appliances, Consumer Electronics and more | eReplacement Parts
Sometimes between the cost of the parts and the age of the tool it's not worth doing a full repair. In that case you might try bypassing the module and running it as a single speed with an external speed control.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Matt

I very much doubt that the controller is repairable. DW certainly don't publish wiring diagrams for it. Swapping-out the module is very easy, though, and in my experience is a lot cheaper than buying a new router

Regards

About $58 and shipping... way cheaper than a new router. Also I seem to remember magnet pickup issues on the Dewalt... might want to check that before you spend money on the controller.

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.

The magnetic "pick-up" you refer to either is there or it isn't (it's basically a lump of plastic with some metal inside but doesn't need to be removed to replace the speed sensor). It can be a so and so to remove in a full strip-down, but otherwise not a problem
