I have a Ryobi RE175. It just stopped working

I have a Ryobi RE175 router. It just stopped working right in the middle of a job. When i press the start trigger it starts then stops immediately. When I keep pressing the trigger up and down and it starts but then stops briefly then stops again. Is it the trigger switch or might it be something else like the shaft lock switch? Can I bypass all the switches and dedicate this bad boy to the router table that has it's own start switch.

1. Shut the power off, and disconnect your Ryobi
router. It could be the start/stop switch. So, you
can begin checking the switch contacts using the
multi-tester. Set if at 1 x 10 Ohms. Put the probes
of the tester across the switch terminals. Pressing
the trigger on will move the tester indicator to zero
if your switch is okey. Otherwise, no moverment -
the trigger switch need replacement.
2. Should the trigger switch proved to be okey, Check
the carbon brush of the unit, short carbon brush??
you have to replace it.

Change the bit on the model RE 175


Hello there
Seems like the RE175 manual is not longer available at Ryobi.

This is from the manual for the RE180 which MUST be similar to the re175. Manual download here https://manuals.ttigroupna.com/system/files/5849/original/RE180PL1_448_trilingual_05.pdf?2014

From page 7 ....To remove the bit:

Place the wrench provided through front of router base
onto collet nut and turn counterclockwise to loosen.

Loosen the collet nut and remove the bit.

Release the spindle lock

When i press the switch of the saw it starts then immidiately stop after few seconds


After never using for 6 months, I finall had the need to use my Ryobi saw and had the same problem. Push the switch and it would make one revolution and die. I took the blade off and the end cover oppsote end to epose the other end of the motor shaft. Applied small drop of oil to each. Continued to play with trigger and finally got the motor to get running. Held it on for several minutes. I had to do this several times in order for it to start working properly. Might ne something with breaking in the brushes. Regadless, it works now. Give it a try. Be patient.
