I also have this problem with my 735. What happened in my case is, while planing cedar a knot broke loose and as the planer tried to spit it out it damaged the outlet fan housing. This allows a leak of the chips into this area. I replaced the housing once and broke it again so now I have some gorilla tape over the new hole and I just clean out this area with a vac and a air hose every so often when the height adjustment crank gets hard to turn. Kinda’ a pain but it planes very well.
