Clean and lube the throttle control linkage.

Ridgid Saws | Answered on Aug 07, 2020

Portable thicknesser has all the powered parts in the power planer head including the powered rollers that auto feed the timber under the planer head.
I have never had one apart so I don't know how the rollers are connected to the motor though as the head is so compact it is more likely gears than belt (mine is floor standing and uses a belt) and likely has some sort of overload clutch that will slip in case of an overload.

Whatever the drive system is, it clearly needs repair and that will mean removing and dismantling the power head and when the faulty component is found it might be a good idea to order two to cover future replacements.

Most table saws have a overload circuit breaker, check that. It is usually a red button that trips.

It's the soft start feature of the saw that keeps your breakers from tripping or lights from dimming when the saw starts. Saw works perfectly fine without it.

best guess is the switch, the reversing links might be burned, typical for a reversing switch were the operator does not wait for the motor to stop before switching in reverse

If the part is missing you are stuck on that one, no fix that I have seen here, in fact I have never seen a single question about this make of table saw.
