That sucks, I'm sorry.  I assume you checked the breaker button on the front of the machine just to make sure it's not tripped? 

Are you anywhere close to an authorized Dewalt repair provider?  I know there are a couple in my area, and if I were in this situation I would be taking the tool over to them.

Thanks for all the info for this post.  I was saving for the CUTECH but I had the chance to buy a used DeWalt 735 from the estate of my son-in -law’s step- father.  It is ten years old but in good shape.  I am pleased with the quality but may in time go to the Shelix head.  I have used it a few times but I went to use it yesterday and it will not start.  I have rotated the motor to make sure it was not on a dead spot but I still just sits there.  I have tired to contact tech support at DeWalt but their live chat has been trying for 30 minutes to log me in.  So much for tech support in this day and age.  Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should start?

For those of you who own a Cutech, is the dust collection good when connected to a good dust collector (like a cyclone)?

While I have no personal experience with the Cutech, planers are generally pretty clean tools when hooked up to a good dust collector, doubly so if they are the insert cutter variety. Biggest thing with stationary tools like planers, jointers, table saw, etc is limiting chip size the machine produces and making sure you have sufficiently large ducting. With those any decently modern tool has sufficient dust collection.
