There are a couple of things I would try before doing anything drastic to the tool. With planers feed problems can come from a combination of dirty rollers or binding on the table. Clean the rollers by raising the cutterhead as high as it will go and wipe them off with a cotton rag and mineral spirits. With the bed a coat of wax may help the wood feed easier.

These are just a couple of simple things that you may have already tried but I would start with these before taking the planer apart.
