Two of the three holes for the dust shroud hold down screws broke so I replaced the dust shroud with a new one from a Dewalt store nearby. Once I replaced the shroud I started getting dust buildup inside the casing which jammed the gears that raise and lower the planer head.
I never had this problem with the old one. I did notice on the new one the opening that fits over the blades is very narrow and does not go across the full blade opening. Unfortunately I did not save the old one to compare the opening size and cannot get a picture to see if the opening should be bigger.
Any help is appreciated.
