Is your push stick catching on the front edge of the table?
Are you snagging something on the out feed table?
Is there a snag on the fence? (It doesn't take much.)
Is there a snag on the leading edge of the board that is catching on something?
Actually I like the suggestion about the throat plate being to deep in the table. The throat plate should be even to the smallest measurable distance above the table top.
You should be aware that when ripping flat boards that have been cut square on the ends, the square end will catch on almost anything.
Another thought. If you use the push stick next to the fence, the side of the push stick could be catching on the fence.
BTW - The placement of the push stick should be as close as possible to the blade. This helps to keep the stock against the fence and makes for a straighter cut. PUSH STICKS ARE INTENDED TO COME IN CONTACT WITH THE BLADE.
Use the right tool for the job.
