You have to loosen the screws on the blades and adjust them. It tells you how to proceed in your owner manual

Hi Jay,

Bad news!

Was your planer out of level before the chain broke? If it was, this could be the cause of the chain breaking. If that was the case, then it's possible something in one of the front posts has broken.

If the out-of-level situation happened after the chain broke, then the chain may have not only have broken the handle connections but also a part at the top of the post.

I am pasting a website where you can easily get parts and you can see a schematic of the planer:

Their delivery is pretty quick.

If you have any more questions about this, please reply back.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

My Dewalt 735 planer won't turn on. I blew the house fuse a few times, it would start after I came out. Now it won't start at all and it's been a couple days

The 735 draws 15 amps, which is the rating of typical lighting circuits in homes. The receptical in the wall is sometimes 15 amps although those circuits usually have 20 amp breakers. Since you said "fuse", it might be a bad fuse or even the wiring between the two. Circuit breakers go bad also. If you can confirm the receptical supplies voltage, it is time to check the 735.

Unknown if the device has a termal switch inside. I doubt it would go bad, but you implied a resting period allowed it to run several more times after the fuse in the basement was replaced. If it reset once, it should do it again. If you can find a diagram, there might be a fuse inside, but someone would have to take it apart to check.

A motor can get so hot that a solder joint inside can let loose and it will never run again. Sometimes the coil (windings of the motor) can short out (melt together) and this will increase how much current goes through it and also generate more heat and melt more windings together. Besides producing a smell, your house fuse would burn out real quick.

I had a chuckle over your 2nd sentence but I dare not say why. If it started after you came out (of the house), why did you not run it for a longer time?

A motor requires more power at the instant of turn on. 15 amps of running current will require 20 amps or more when starting. "slow blow" fuses (vs quick action) and circuit breakers can deal with the short period over current requirements.

Adjustment on dewalt planer

I don't know which planer you have, but if all the planing happens on the top side of your stock then all surfaces underneath should be at the same level.
If you have a fancy planer that cuts on the bottom side, then the outfeed table should align with the cutters and the infeed table would be adjusted below that by the cut thickness (like a jointer

There is a wheel on the left hand side. Typically, it won't let you LOWER it below what that wheel is set to, but that may have something to do with it.

Dewalt 735 planer. dust is accumulating in the

Had the same problem. Drove me nuts trying to figure out where it is coming from. It most likely is a worn in hole in the squirrel cage where the two halves go together. You won't see it unless you remove the fan and both halves of the blower housing. Take them out and put the two together and have a look from the inside. The wear is along the seam. I used hot glue in that area to fill the gap. Squirt it on one half and put the two halves together while hot. Also, you can buy replacements for these. Hope this helps.
