Maple, especially soft Maple, and Cherry are notorious burners, and even if everything is ok, you can get it, like you said sanding or a hand plane and you are good. If you slow your feed rate much, you will note it more. Possibly you are hesitant at first, then once you get moving push a bit faster stopping the burn. I hate to ever say rush when feeding into a TS, but once you make your move try to be stable on the amount of forward you use. If it isn’t burning all the way through, you are adjusting your feed.

The only other thing I would want to check, is measure your wood accurately to make sure you are 4 square. If the stock has a “fat” face that may be it, but if the stock is good, and you are consistently getting the burn at the start then I’m thinking it’s a hesitant start.

For the kickback move that fingerboard back off the blade a bit and you shouldn’t have further problems
