OK the switch I found that you need is part number 76325.7001 and to find it I would suggest going to Freudtools.com and they have a dealer locator on the home page, if you have trouble give me your location with zip code and I will find one for you. Good luck

I have parts for the ft2000 and FT3000.
If you would like a quote I would be happy to get one for you.
just send me an email to haltonmaintenance@yahoo.ca

I have a Freud 2000E plunge router. It is about 10 years old, but I've never changed the router bit I have in it before. Now I want to remove the bit I have in, but cannot turn the bolt to remove it....


Hello Davis gr,My name is larry I am an auth Freud service tech.
The first thing to do before you attempt any repairs is of course to unplug.In the full plunged position make sure the router is locked in position out of the table on its side.You twist to loosen the bit nut
and tap gently on the side of the bit with a rubber hammer
turning it slowly and it will come loose to remove.
second--If the router will not spring up to its top position it is because
the posts that are spring loaded are dry.again you must remove the router from the table clean the postd with a dry cloth and while still locked lubricate with lite oil using a clean cloth the metel posts.
after that with the same rubber hammer tap the base plate and it will come loose
I hope this is some help

I,AM LOOKING FOR A POWER SWITCH FOR MY 2000E PLUNGE ROUTER


Hi,

You can order your switch from Freud at (800) 334-4107. It is number 42 on the parts breakdown which you access at: http://www.freudtools.com/images/manuals/FT2000VCE.pdf
Freud's part number is 76325.7001

It doesn't seem like anyone stocks Freud parts. Went to some discussion sites and found that even repair centers don't stock them. You'll have to contact them directly.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Just stopped working. won't make a sound. wires all seem fine, nothing loose.


I have the same router and the same thing happened to me. I had to take it in and get a new switch put in it. The tech told me that mine was under warranty and it did not cost me anything for the repair.

Skil 1820 router doesnt work


Does it have a collet lock that is not disengaged? Are there two switches on that model?
If not, unplug, spin the bit by hand , then reconnect and then try to start it.
Blow out the motor with compressed air.
Check the brushes if they could be worn.
The switch may have gone out on you. That's how they fail, all of a sudden- like. Sometimes a sharp rap will shake something into place, but short of that, I'd just be guessing...

Router will not power up


I wrote a long response to your question, which apparantly has been lost in the web somewhere.
Try to make sure the detachable power cord is properly connected, and twisted 1/4 turn clockwise to lock in place.
Make sure the toggle switch is working freely.
Make sure the collet lock or spindle lock is not engaged.
If that doesn't help, please write back and I'll try to re write a troubleshooting guide for you.
I can't believe it didn't post properly.
Anyway, good luck!

Bosch 1617 EVS router will not start.


It sounds like either the switch is going bad, or the brushes have worn out. It's hard to say, not knowing how many hours of use you have on the machine. You've already pulled the cover. Take a look at the length of the brushes and see if they're a candidate for replacement. If not, it's not much farther to go to replace the switch.
The only other likely cause I can imagine is that the power cord itself has been bent into the same shape so many times from rolling it up around the router that is has a short and makes intermittent contact. But you say you have checked this and the fault is not with the cord.
You might try spinning the motor armature part of a revolution by hand, so it comes to rest in a different spot, and trying the switch.
These switches do go bad, and that is usually the culprit. The history of the switch seems to indicate it was behaving erratically before it failed, and with new ones costing only about $5.00, I'd invest in a new one, install it yourself, and save yourself the cost of a service fee.
You can acquire parts here, among many others, if you choose to follow that course: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/bosch-1617evs-0601617739-router-parts-c-128_1119_3070.html
If you do order parts online, try to confirm you've found the correct part by including the Bosch 10 digit tool product number in your search.
I hope this helps to lead you toward a swift solution. Best wishes!
