I just got that same planer (well, the Polar Bear version). I swapped out the power cord with a longer one. While I was disconnecting the old cord, I discovered that the crimp connector on the ground wire was not actually crimped to the wire. The ground wire just pulled right out.

Maybe give a light tug on the wires inside the magnetic switch mounted inside the lower cabinet and see if any of the wires in there have faulty crimped connectors.
