    Mine was doing that and it was driving me nuts. I tried everything but it kept clogging up. I finally figured out that I had to clean out all the fine dust that was clogging my dust collector filter. It took an hour of hosing it down to get all the fines out but it fixed the problem.

    From my experience that is weird Dale. I have almost the same model (G0490X) as you and I have never experienced anything like you describe. I do get some (as in < 12 or so) chips sometimes on the infeed table, particularly if the bag is almost full or I have inadvertently left two gates open. I get considerably more chips out of the planer which is closer to the DC. My jointer setup includes a 1200cfm DC and about 25' of mostly 6" of HVAC piping. Like Mark I do clean the filter every time I empty the bag.

    I just took a quick look at the online parts breakdown and there is a part called a "chip breaker" (item # 98). It's possible that this part is not aligned properly allowing the chips to fly onto the table. It should be a plastic piece and in the planer it is orange in color. There is also a chip deflector (# 54) that is attached to the bottom of the infeed table that may have a problem. The unfortunate thing is that they are on the bottom of the jointer.
