Take the collet fully apart and clean out all sawdust and other debris. Does this happen on all i/4 shank bits? use only quality bits preferably American bits. I use Whiteside and Amana, Cmt is a good bit. If it does not hold any 1/4 bit replace collet. To my knowledge Sears has never made a router, they just sell them. It's possible it was a Skill, a Black and Decker, or some other common brand with a few specs that Sears had them made with (good luck with that). Check router
other people have looked for collets, there is many suggestion or answers. t site has them, but it does not specify 1/4 or 1/2

Is it possible to grip each part with a pliers and twist and pull at the same time to release the bit? Let some oil run into the collet before you do this.

* You can also look at the old belt and get the numbers off them. Check on for replacements.
