I contacted ProvoCraft and they said since I've had it over a year, there is no warranty. They advised me to buy a replacement.

It was working fine, and I don't use it too often, mostly for embossing. Now, the roller handle moves and the bars are rolling, but when I put the plate "sandwich" in there, it "catches" but won't roll through.

If it matters, I was using a Sizzix embossing folder when it gave out and I was using the regular B plate-->White plate-->folder-->B-plate combo.

Has anyone had this happen? Any advice?

maybe a spring slipped inside?

The sizzix ones are about the same thickness as the cuttlebug ones so that shouldn't have mattered. BTW, the white plate (A) is always your bottom plate.

7 years to get here... So now what?

are you using the same kind of paper you always use, or are you using chipboard that might make it thicker?

My handle broke on mine in September and I replaced with a big shot! I am never going back to a cuttlebug!
