I had this machine set up as a coverstitch for one project, and changed it back to 3 thread overlock. Before I used it to do the coverhemming, it was cutting fine. An hour later, it's refusing to cut and is instead chewing the fabric.

I replaced the moveable blade less than 6 months ago, but bought another one and tried that. It's made no difference at all, and honestly, I can't tell the newest blade from the slightly older blade - they look and feel exactly the same.

I'm really frustrated as I've got a lot of work to do, but I suspect this is a machine that needs a service, isn't it? I don't have time!!! Wails......
