I’ve had one of my Craftsman routers stop running in the middle of a cut using 2 1/2” panel bits. It was too much for the router to handle with the speed I was feeding. Turned off the switch, waited 15 seconds, the router reset it’s self, and I was able to keep routing. Too small of horse power. As LesB says, this could be brushes worn, or even a switch. I had a sander quit on me in the middle of sanding 2 weeks ago, it was not a Craftsman, the switch failed. If you take it to a repair shop, the cost may be greater than buying a used or new router.
