Look inside of it and check out the condition of the feed rollers. The rubber rollers may need to be replaced or maybe cleaned. Also look and see if the rollers are turning. It may be the chain turning the wheels is broken.

Cleaning the rollers is a great idea but don't forget to clean and reapply wax to the tables.

I use mineral spirits to clean my rollers. Make sure to unplug the machine when doing this and also know at all times where your hands are in relation to the knives.

If you surface a lot of pine the rollers can accumulate the pitch from the wood. Mineral spirits would work with a lot of elbow grease. If there is very much accumulation of pitch you might have to use a stronger solvent such as lacquer thinner to clean them.

Are you trying to take too much off? Try a shallower setting and working your way down
