Ryobi planer won't pull wood through, Sometimes pushing/pulling helps.

Posted by on

  • Anonymous May 06, 2009

    I have the same problem with my Ryobi 1300 planer. It doesn't seem to matter how much or how little I plane off, you have to push/pull the wood thru and when working by your self when you move from pushing to pulling the wood stops and you get a small cup where the blade is running against the stalled wood. We also have a Delta 12.5" planer setting beside the Ryobi that is used to do the "rough" planing and then we finish in the Ryobi. We have no problems with the Delta feeding with cuts as deep as 1/8" but the Ryobe won't even pull the wood thru at 1/64". Any Ideas on how to solve this problem? The feed speed on this planer has been changed to 18 fpm from the 26 fpm, and I would have thought that would have given it more power to the feed rollers to pull the wood thru.

I have this planer and what I have found is first clean the rollers with naptha on a rag be VERY CAREFUL plug machine in kick on and off un plug machine clean exposed part of roller then plug in and kick on again to move rollers, after that clean in feed and out feed tables then wax with hard wax and polish and wood should feed thru much better.

These planers are a bit sensitive. Too much bite and too little both result in the problem you cite. The hardness and the dryness of the board also impacts it. Therefore, I would say for starters just experiment a bit with the amount you are trying to remove with each pass. I usually only remove 1/16th inch per pass.

I have my ryobi planer completely apart to replace bearings but cannot get the housing off of the armature. Do I need to remove the brush holder? How? Any suggestions.


Well, you've probably already done it but make sure you HAVE removed the motor brushes. Usually hidden under a couple of plastic plugs that unscrew. That releases the commutator. The motor should then slide out. Depending on exactly which Ryobi planer you have be aware that sometimes there's a sticker on the end of the motor that actually hides a circlip or other holding device. Good luck!

How do i change the blades


Disconnect the planer's power cord, then use the T-wrench that comes with the planer to remove the four screws that secure the top of the planer. Lift the top to remove it from the planer.
Remove the three wing nuts holding the dust cover over the cutter head. Rotate the dust cover up to unlock it from the fan housing, then push the cover to the left to disconnect it. Remove the dust cover from the planer to expose the cutter head.
Rotate the cutter head with a piece of scrap wood until the lock on the side of the cutter head engages. All eight screws in the cutter head clamp should now be visible. Remove the screws using the T-wrench, then turn the T-wrench upside down and use the magnet in the head of the T-wrench to grab the clamp. Remove the clamp to expose the knife underneath. Use the magnet to remove the knife.

Press down on the cutter head lock to free the cutter head. Use some scrap wood to turn the cutter head for access to the remaining two knives. Follow the instructions in Steps 3 and 4 to remove and replace those knives.

I am trying to replace a belt on a Ryobi 10 inch surface planer, but I haven't found a tension release. How do I replace the belt


I thought one of those belts, pulleys, had a screw on the end holding a washer. Pull the screw off and the washer, and the belt should slip off. It has been a while since I have had to go in there, but I remember that much. Unless it was a hand held planer I had. I would have to go and peek at it. Check it out.

Ryobi AP12 Thickness Planer---rubber feed rollers do not rotate


It is fixable if you are technically competent. All parts are still available online. It could be one of two problems:

1 - The rollers are driven by two gear & chain mechanisms on the height adjuster side of the unit. I did have a drive chain break once.

2 - If it isn't that than the gearbox has cracked / gear stripped under the torque load. This is also fixable, each individual gear and the gearbox housing are still available (10-09), but it requires substaintial teardown.

As you disassemble the unit just be careful once you remove the crossover height adjuster shaft - you don't want to turn one lifter by itself and have the planer higher on one side. It really is a simple teardown, just lots of parts. If you like the planer it is worth it; parts are cheap. If you are like me, you enjoy tearing stuff down to see how it's made and you hate throwing out $200 tools because only one little part broke!
