Jet jointer 6csx infeed table adjustment problem

Just finished tuning up the jointer and now I'm left with a big problem. I cannot get the infeed table up any higher than a 1/16" cut. I want it half that shallow. Yes, I've cleaned, scrubbed and blown out the adjustment mechanism to no avail. It appears that there are two washers on the adjustment screw shaft that are jamming it and preventing it from turning any further. I don't see them on the parts diagram; can't figure out why they are there to begin with and can't figure out how to get them off. Any help out there? Sign me Frustrated as Hell P.S. the jointer is over 15 years old and I simply don't remember if this was a problem when I last used it years ago.

Perhaps the knives are out too far from the head. You may have the table all the way up and the knives are a 1/16" or more above where zero on the table should be.

Thanks, Steve. No dice, the knives are fine. This morning I discovered the washers and the adjusting screw are covered with paint overspray from the factory. I stripped the paint off and find that the washers are bent and can't be moved. Now, I need to figure out how to get them off and replaced. So, now I guess I'm trying to figure out how to get the adjustment screw shaft off the infeed table so I can replace the washers.
