So I walked out this afternoon to get rolling on a project and my router won’t start. The router is a R-600 Ryobi 3 HP. It is an older model back when Ryobis were still made in Japan. I got it in a deal with my tablesaw about a year ago. I didn’t touch it until last week. Started it up last week and it worked great. It sat in the garage for 5 or 6 days and now it won’t start up. It has been relatively cold out there, but I am in Texas, so when I say relatively cold, I mean probably no colder than 40 F or so.
I opened up the switch and cleaned off the connections, still nothing. I did get it to start up for about one second at one point, but that was it. Couldn’t get it to budge or anything after that. Outlet is good and so is the cord. I got a good shock at one point to prove it.
Anybody got any clues on what the issue could be? Let me know if you need to know anything else to help you figure it out.
