The key thing you need to decipher is do the feed rollers move when the planer is on? They should not move freely, so that is not a cause for concern. If the feed rollers move by themselves when the planer is on, then they are operating properly. If they do not move my themselves with the planer on, then start checking gears and their pins, as well as chains, belts.

The most common cause of stock not feeding properly is dull blades. Occasionally a gear will break.
