I am so frustrated with my Cricut! The blade that came with the machine lasted a long time! I was able to do all the wedding invitations, Shower invites, favor cards and thank you's for my daughters wedding. Then I changed it, the next 2 only lasted about a month, with not much use. Anyone else having an issue with the blade? When do you know if the housing assembly needs to be changed?
I agree...I've never changed the housing but have had some blades last much longer than others. provo craft has a great customer service department and I'd say it would be worth it to let them know your frustrations! Let us know how you make out!
I have seen where it appears to be a blade issue and then after changing her blade the lady had replaced the housing but to secured it well and the housing was actually moving around. Just a quick simple tightening of the housing unit and making sure that the number/arrow are facing you. HTH
I am not sure exactly why cut I have many on many threads and Youtube to have the number pointing towards you.
My recall was it had something to do with the position on the blade itself. I really don't remember exactly.
