I’m having a sporadic problem with my planer in that it randomly stops feeding during a run. This results in a groove being cut into the work piece which must be pulled to get things going again. Several boards will run through fine and then it happens. It occurs with all types of wood. Any ideas as to what’s causing this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Frank

You could try applying some wax to the planer bed and maybe cleaning the rollers with alcohol (shellac thinner)

Hello Frankieb21 I have delta planer 22 660 13inch floor model. I had the same problem your talking about I got out my owner manual it had how to adjust the infeed roller ,chipbreaker,knife,and outfeed roller I had to adjust infeed,and chipbreaker after doing this it still did want to feed all the time like you i had to push or pull the board to get it move again I stayed after it check and rechecking final I realize that adjust infeed roller and the chipbreaker for height and parallel to table is good but you can adjust spring tension on both. If the spring tension is to tight it will cause this problem to loose wont feed I can also say if your blade are bad this can cause a problem not sure if it would cause to not feed but how old are they. But check your owner manual and check and make adjust before you try to adjust your spring tension it easy to get lost it trying to adjust that doesnt mean you shouldnt do it but checking to see if any thing my have come out adjust and might not be parallel with the table is the first step I would do and final like lew said above clean and wax your table hope this help
