If you are trying to remove too much material at one time, this will definetly happen. Try removing less material per pass.

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!

go to the back of the planer and remove the cover. loosen the bolts holding the blade and let it out a fraction. it should have springs to push it out a little. make sure both blades are out the same abount. it is not hard to do and will be quick.

This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.
