I’m betting the wood is bowed in some small fashion.

I has similar issues when first getting used to my DW735. Was super careful about measuring the end of the board and not taking too big of a bite. But every so often it would sound like something was holding the feed back and CLICK, there goes the circuit breaker on the planer.

Finally realized I needed to raise the cutters so I could JUST slide the board all the way thru, and that’s how I started finding the high spots. Many times I have to hand feed the wood till the rollers grab, so it will get the high spots first.
