I purchased a combination Jet jointer/planner in Aug. this past year. When I 1st started planning with it I was taking too much off in 1 pass, motor got hot and shut down. But yesterday I was planning some Blood wood taking very shallow cuts and the motor got hot and shut down again. I let it cool down and just started it up again. Without even running wood through it it got hot within a minute or so and shut down. Does anyone who owns a Jet combo tool have any ideas or had the same problem.

What voltage is it running on? Are you using an extension cord? Voltage drop can cause motor to over heat and trip thermal overload protection switch.

What model is it? It sounds like something has failed in either the motor itself, or the electronics.
