On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

Hello. Are you sure it's unlocked? It won't run if the lock (used to keep the shaft from turning when changing bits) is engaged.

Sears Craftsman 1/2 HP garage door goes all the way down, then back up. The lights do not blink. Checked for obstructions, none. Nothing blocking the sensors. What can I do to fix this?


If the door is hitting the floor and then reversing you need to adjust the 'down limit' which is on the side of the motor unit. Turn it a bit in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking may be necessary.
