I had similar symptoms with my old Elu 96 router. The sender magnet ring on the top end of the spindle/arbor had become loose, & when inverted only allowed the router to run @ max revs. Right way up, the motor tended to speed erratically.
A dab of Araldite permanently remediaed the problem. Hopefully your tool has a similarly easily diagnosed problem with a commensurately inexpensive fix.
The "blowing the breaker" part for me translates into something worth understanding. Which means a current draw measurement.
- If the current draw is high, then it is the router, or the wiring. - If it is low, then "how is it blowing the breaker"?
Even the speed controller should not be blowing the breaker, so something may be sorted inside, and a volt meter (Ohm) may not make it easy to find as the speed controller is not as simple as a switch...

I’d be really suprised it it was being overloaded by 27mm ply, because it’s probably the strongest router out there. If you look at what Arunda cutters have to dig through, the fact that Arunda recommend the LO65 above all other routers ,speaks volumes. You mentioned that it was sold at a 20% discount, does the seller have a position on this, or can they support a warranty claim? I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m in denial about the router. I recommended it to you not for any bells and whistles, but because in terms of resilience it’s an arguably bomb proof design from one of the worlds top manufacturers, so if something has gone wrong it’s not necessarily the routers fault. It does have cut-off protection, so that if the power supply is interrupted it requires he on/off switch to be reset before it starts again. That doesn’t explain why it didn’t work for a day though.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
