Re: load and adjust
I would go to Makita.com and in the section under Factory and Authorized Service Centers click on that and there is a window to view and download manuals for this tool, just type in your model number. Dave

the cutter roll/blade is not parallel to the cutting deck so one end needs adjustment
it could be from the cutters being blunt at one end and that will produce extra pressure at the other end or is not cutting as efficiently as the other end resulting in the problem
What model auto-feed screwdriver do you have? All of the auto-feed drivers I have worked on have an adjustable nose peice that has to be set to the length of the screw so they will start properly and drive correctly. They also have a fine tune adjustment wheel somehwere on the tool so you can set the screw to be anywhere from just below the surface (dimpled) or flush or slightly above the surface (proud). This is all in relation to the surface the nose peice is touching. The driver is designed to release the bit when the screw has reached the depth set by the adjustment wheel so it doesn't strip out the head of the screw. I don't know of any that would let you set it so the screw would go through the plasterboard (drywall) and end up flush in the wood.
If adjustments are necessary, follow the this procedure: Spindle side-play can be minimized by adjusting the locknut located on the left side of the motor unit 1-1/2 inches behind the spindle and towards the bottom of the motor unit. While moving the feed handle up and down, tighten the lock nut until the play is minimized, but not so tight so as to restrict free movement of the spindle. The spindle should return by itself to the full up position. The drive belt tension may be adjusted by removing the top cover and then loosening the two nuts on either side of the motor pulley. Adjust the motor position and tighten the nuts so that moderate finger pressure against the belt causes it to deflect 3/16" to 1/4" (see Figure 6). Excessive belt tension may result in damage to the bearings. Note: Belt tension can also affect the generation of "noise" in the drill press. Although it does not affect drilling accuracy, it may be desirable to adjust the tension for minimum noise. The spindle has been generously oiled at the factory. You may have to periodically wipe off oil that makes its way down the spindle.
I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix.
You need a small flat-head screwdriver.
1. Remove the clear bobbin cover.
2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position.
3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs.
4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position.
You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.
