I was having issues with my paper not cutting through so when I increased my pressure it cuts now however it is ripping. So I decreased the speed and it is still ripping. I now have my settings on 5 for blade depth high for pressure and the 2nd setting for speed. Any advice?

When this happens to me, I decrease the pressure, slow down the blade and then multi cut a couple of times. That seems to do the trick! Good luck!

what type of paper are you cutting?

have you checked your blade housing to make sure you don't have any paper fuzzies stuck in it?

do you have any paper fuzzies stuck to your mat?

have you tried another blade?

I have checked the blade housing and it is fuzz free, I have ordered a new set from Amazon (since they are only 5 on there) so as soon as they come in I can check that. The cardstock I am using is from Michaels the paper studio is the brand. I was really hoping it was not the blade but I am thinking that is the problem I dont want to be buying blades every couple of weeks. Maybe the one in the machine was just not good.

if you're using the original blade that came in your machine it might be dull. when you get the new blades try them out. if that was the problem call PC they have been known to send replacements for blades that dulled out quickly.
