A couple questions: where is it actually clogging up at, in the 90, or around the edge of the separator? What are you using for a DC, a shop-vac or an actual DC? What size is the piping on your separator? Based on what you said, I’m guessing you are not moving enough air through your system. Unlike a tablesaw or a router, which produce mostly fine dust, jointers tend to throw off larger chips that more easily jam-up the works if they aren’t moving fast enough. If the clog is around the edge of the can, it could be that you need a larger gap between your separator and the side of the can for the shavings to fall through. Hope this helps.
