My cricut mini has started to sgagg the paper ruining every image I try to cut!!

It so annoying & a waste of my good paper, you all know my frustration here!!!!

I have tried a few thing's like adding a brand new blade, that was there worst thing I could do, & Im also using a new mat

I have tried different speeds

I would love to throw it in the bin & get a silhouette, but I have too many image's on this machine


can anyone help?

Sgagging is what I do when it rips!

Did you try a fresh blade? Mine does this if blade is dull, or if pressure and speed isn't right.

Also I seem to have better luck cutting store-brand cardstocks, not a super smooth finish like Stampin Up.

Good luck, it's so frustrating!

my brand new expression 2 was doing this last Christmas -- EVERY image! Turns out after doing a song and dance for PC, that the blade housing was bad. You may want to call them. I had to run through an entire procedure for recalibrating and updating the machine (brand new!) not once but twice, before they decided it was the housing and sent me a new unit - not housing, but machine!

I had that problem sometimes when my pressure was too high.
