Default dewalt 735 issue

many thanks for your help --

just started seeing this issue -- wood stalls in feeding -- router keeps running but wood stops feeding -- like the rollers are stopped
or just spinning -- if you push -- you can complete the cut -- there is a line across the wood where it stopped but no discernible change in cut / depth -- specifics are: speed 2 -- dimensioning, depth of cut -- 1/32", walnut, 4 - 6" wide, spiral head, drive belt looks OK but it just
occurred to me that i haven't looked to see if it is running when the feed stops -- need to check that --

first occurrences were after 30 m of use so i started resting the planer 15m or so but this am was on the first piece through

very infrequently i have had the 20A wall breaker flip and everything shut down -- planer is only device running on that circuit --
it has also happened recently but i can't say its tied to the other --

took off the top cover and vacuumed out the dust -- nothing amiss that i could see --

appreciate your thoughts and direction --

the machine needs cleaning and maintenance...
knives are dull..
consult page 8 of your owners manual...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

thank you --

i had checked the manual for that sort of stuff and it is no help --

would you have any links to info on how/what to do -- i've replaced the drive belt, put in a spiral head so i know my way around
the planer a bit -- i periodically clean and lubricate the depth drive screws and they run smooth --

how do you access the rollers ?

any specifics you could provide would be greatly appreciated --

disconnect the power....
reach inside the machine and clean the rollers w/ paint thinner or turps..
wax the table while you are in there..

another thing...

there are a couple of covers on the right and left that has some cogs and chains inside. those work like a bike chain the central shaft turns and moves a chain. the chain is attached to some cogs that turn the rollers. take off the caps and see if they are broken or come lose.

It also sounds to me like you might be trying to take too big a bite on each pass. The tripped breaker and the feed stalling are clues. I don't know about that particular machine but my 16" King has a steel feed roller in front of the head and a rubber roller past that head. I've replaced the rubber roller and I may be in need of replacing the steel one or trying to resharpen the edges on it. It resembles a gear and after 1000s of board feet the edges on it may be getting dull and losing their grip but you shouldn't be having that issue yet if your machine is fairly new.

many thanks for the help --

I had the same problem with mine. Changing the knives and really cleaning the rollers took care of my problem. Searching YouTube I came across a video where the same type of problem was caused by the one of the roller drive gears having a sheared key. The gear spun freely on the roller shaft without moving the roller.

However tripping the breaker does not fit that scenario.

Good luck tho on finding what to clean the rollers with. I used small amounts alcohol but never did find agreement among people or companies on what to use.

Glad you got it going. As usual I am a day late and a dollar short on responding to these posts.
