I just got my DW735 and have only used it to test out and adjust tables to minimize snipe. It works fine with no issues….until i turn it off. about 1 second after i press the stop button, the breaker (main panel in my basement) trips.

Wondering why it would do this when shutting off and not turning on (as i assume it draws more amps to turn on)?

possibly a loose wiring in the switch/outlet causing a short. have you tried on a different outlet?

Take an ohmmeter, unplug the planer and connect the leads to the prongs of the planer. Turn it on an off. When it is off the resistance should immediately drop to infinity.
Repeat the same with the ground and the hot prong. ( it is on the left when looking from the prongs side) and do the same.
If the circuit does not open when switching off you have a problem with the planer.

Is your breaker a GFCI breaker?

These can trip from the back EMF spike when you turn a motor off. I had a ceiling fan that would constantly trip a GFCI breaker when turned off.

Have your say...
