Hi and thanks for using justAnswer.com
After sitting for years the lubrication is likely oxidized to the point of creating friction instead of lubrication. Do you get a burning oder associated with the overheating?
The model number you provided pulls up as a router. Sleeve #1 and bearings 10 & 11 would be the points to clean of solidified lubricant. You can order new ones here:
