I finally am feeling better and got a chance to use my new big shot but I'm a little worried I used it wrong is it supposed to make a bad noise when you run it through as it cuts? I hope I didn't ruin it already lol

It will make a crackling noise when it cuts. Not sure what kind of bad noise you are talking about. What were you cutting?

Yea, mine makes this very odd cracking noise but that is normal. Even the small one did it to some degree. Just make sure you are making the sandwich right according to the instructions and you should be okay!

Yeah it was a crackling noise I guess I wasn't expecting that or for it to cut the plastic mat. I was using dienamics dies. I followed the picture so I think I made the sandwich correctly I just didn't think it would make a noise lol. Glad to know its normal thanks

I find this happens more often when the plates are newer. As long as you aren't meeting a great deal of resistance, you should be fine.

Yes, it's normal. That's the sound of the die cutting into the cutting mat, and that's why the mats get cut up. Don't worry; you didn't break it.
