I think Matt is referring to the 1617 switch problems. The MRC23 is a different animal. It uses a low voltage connection between the trigger on the base and the motor. When I looked at this router at the woodworking show a couple years ago, I wondered if this would be a problem.
I would start by inspecting the low voltage wiring tracts. If the LED light is dim, that tells me very little electricity is traveling through the wiring. It may be enough to illuminate a bulb, but not enough to run the motor.
Try cleaning the contacts between the motor and the base.

Hopefully Bosch can help you resolve this frustrating issue.
Best of luck.
