Dewalt 611 failure

So my dewalt 611 started sparking and just quit. It will not power on. The light comes on, but thats all. I read previous posts and contacted dewalt. There is not a service center within 100 miles from me. Dewalt wants to email me a label and send my router in for repair. They said once they get it, it will take 10-14 business days to repair. Then they will ship it back. This is only 2-3 months old and only used for last 1 month. Inventables, can you please help as I have numerous orders and can’t be shut down before the holidays…

Welcome to the forum Jason,
If it sparked just before quitting then you probably need new brushes

Amazon will have them, get spares.
And its always nice to have a spare router on hand if time/customers are lining up, any breakdown will always be at the worst timing :wink:

At speed 1 most seem to get 150-200hrs of runtime, at higher RPM this number drop a fair bit.

Thanks all. I ordered spares from Amazon and went and bought another 611. Gonna have that spare just in case. But I am back up and running. Lost only 5 hours of production.
