Default Pinch rollers on Expert 24LX

Hi. Has anyone else experienced problems with the tension in their pinch rollers on the Expert 24LX? The left one holds the vinyl solid but it pulls through the right one. The machine's less than a year old.

Check to see if the pinch roller is cracked, it will be a tiny crack hard to see. Might have to get a new one, if less than a year old should be under warranty still.

They crack in the back sometimes. Someone else posted pictures elsewhere in this section of a cracked pinch roller.

I did see the photos of the cracks, but I've had a look and there are none on mine. The problem came about because I was trying to cut out a design that consisted of a lot of circles. A lot of the cuts weren't lining up so when I tried to weed it I was pulling off the design. I cleaned all the parts that it suggested in the manual, slowed down the cutting speed and reduced the pressure but it's still doing it. Is there anything else I can try before i email my distributor?

Is the pinch roller lever still tight, might be loose and worn and not holding the pinch roller down tight enough.

Is the pinch roller lined up under the white mark so it's over a grit area?

That's about all I can think of besides the possible cracked pinch roller.

I just tried to cut it again and the outline cut that is made around the design once it's finished has gone through the design, so it's definitely something slipping it seems to me.

It's under a white mark and the lever at the back feels ok.

It's new vinyl, but I had the same problem on old vinyl I used first.

Have you cleaned both the pinch rollers and the knurled portion of drive bar?

Both pickup some dust and small debris that can effect how well the vinyl feeds.

I'd also double check the pinch rollers very closely for cracks. On one of mine you could only see it using a strong light at angle.
