Did you run it through using wax paper. The other thing to try is to run it through once using a sheet of aluminum foil. Just like with small punches this should sharpen it. If you still have problems after this then I would contact spellbinders.
If the die is not cutting through, I don't know that wax paper is going to help.....it helps get delicate die cuts out once they've been cut. And Spellbinders dies aren't sharp at all, so sharpening them with foil isn't going to help. They cut with pressure, not sharp edges, so increasing the machine pressure is going to give a better cut. I agree with adding a shim or two.
