Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
Either the blades are incorrectly installed causing the head to jam or the safety cover is not installed properly - there is a safety mechanism that locks the cutter head when the cover is removed.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page at the bottom type in your model number DW733 on the next page click on the type you have under instruction manual. Type 1 I know for sure will come up, I have looked at it a couple times. The manual is 30 pages long. If I have helped would you please rate the information accordingly and Thank you

I had the same problem...sometimes you have to take the smallest amount off (1/64th) and it might work, otherwise your blades are probably dull. Try to feed the boards through the planer towards the sides, not just the center so they wear evenly across the length of the blades. They wear out very quickly, which makes this planer very frustrating. If you take the top cover off and inspect them, you'll probably see nicks in them and it's time to replace or rotate them. Each blade has two sides you can remove all the screws using the T-handle wrench from the top cover and flip them. Also, as the blades begin to wear, the planer will become louder and louder. That's another way to tell. When you install new blades notice how much quieter it is when you plane boards.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page towards the bottom is a box indicating manuals/breakdowns. Type in your model number and you can download one this way.
