PROBLEM
SOLUTION
1. Biscuits do not fit the slots. Biscuits
not fitting slots may also cause mis-
alignment of the boards being joined.
A. Biscuit slots are too deep or too shallow. Make fine adjustments
to
depth setting. See "Making Fine Adjustments."
B. Biscuit thickness may be out of tolerance. Compress biscuits in a vise
if they are too thick.
C. Check to see if biscuits are the correct size for the size slots that have
been cut: #0, #10, or #20.
D. Check to see if biscuits have gotten wet and have swelled.
2. Wood particles begin to back up on
the front of the unit.
A. The dust collection system is not functioning
properly.
The dust bag
may be full. Empty the dust bag often. See "Installing/Removing
Dust
Bag".
B. The dust port may be clogged, preventing wood particles from being
drawn into the dust bag. Remove the front and rear base assemblies
and clean blade, bearing plate, base assembly slots, and surrounding
areas. See "Cleaning the Base Assembly and Dust Path."
3. Blade becomes difficult to push in
when cutting slots. Blade does not
retract properly when cutting slots.
A.
Wood particles and resin have built up on base assembly slots and
surrounding areas. Remove front and rear base assemblies and clean
blade, bearing plate, base assembly slots and surrounding
areas. Ap-
ply a thin coat of general purpose grease in slots or on bearing plate
where base slides. See "Cleaning the Base Assembly and Dust Path."
4. Cutting performance is poor and there
is a loss of power or stalling of motor
when cutting slots.
A. Blade is dull. Replace the blade. See "Replacing the Blade."
B. Resin has built up on the blade.
Remove the blade and clean blade
with gum and pitch remover. See "Replacing the Blade."
