    The speed controller can't be repaired if it is faulty and needs to be replaced. They have to be ordered from tritontools.uk or Toolsparesonline both in England and are easy to replace. No-one is Australia currently holds spare parts for Triton.
    If it's stuck on full speed it's probably not such a big issue as most router bits 1" and under should run at full speed anyway. Most people who have trouble with speed controllers have problems with the speed surging up and down, not just a constant fast speed. A replacement controller is going to cost you somewhere up around the $100 mark just for the part and if you have to get someone to install it there will be extra costs.

    My tra001 speed control has been all over the show

    I was waiting for toolsparesonline to get more controllers in stock, in the mean time I tried crimping up the connectors

    adjacent to the control module - problem solved

    it may not be the answer to a lot of cases but it worked for me

    might be worth a look

    cheers

    I addressed this problem by thorough cleaning of this controller
