If you take the side off, and then the power supply, you will see a sensor and a flag, check for wear / damage. sometimes the allen bolt that holds the lower cutter linkage can come loose. try cleaning the sensor. also the connections from the cutter board need cleaning with ipa. if that doesnt solve the issue, you can take the cutter off, remove the silver plate and remove any label debris. if all this fails to solve the problem you will probably require a cutter board or sensor.

Zebra 110xi4 labels jam going into the cutter

This is usually related to the setup of the printer. Check that there is no backfeed set up, and that the settings are on for calibration on head close.

Paper pulls to right side and then jams it all started when paper jam i pulled it out and ever since then when loading paper it pulls to the right and then jams

Try running a good sized thickness paper thru it to clear out the cutters.
Sometimes when they jam some residual paper is left in the space between the cutter wheels and causes the paper to feed askew...
I use the cover from old phone books.

If you get this error check for paper jam and see if the paper cutter is seated right and is not defective. You can try cleaning the cutter and lubricating it, even then issue not resolved replace the gear train.

Locked in blade

My old Cuisinart has this problem because the motor shaft and the corresponding socket on the cutter are worn. The shaft has jammed in the cutter. To un-jam it, stick a bar of wood behind one blade of the cutter (I use the wood handle of my dough whisk) and give it a light, sharp tap with a hammer. Check after every tap to see if it is loose, if not do it again. You want to tap against the back side of the cutter, not the cutting edge side. The socket on your cutter may be cracked, allowing it to open up and slip (and jam) under the stress of cutting. You'll probably need a new one. If the motor shaft is also worn, that can also be replaced. The new part is about $10. I got a few more months of life from my cutter by reinforcing the inner socket with a thin plastic tube from the barrel of a syringe.

My zebra 4M+ get me a cutter jammed status

Sometimes debris builds up in the bottom of the cutter assembly preventing the cutter from going all the down. There is a switch inside the cutter which trips the "jammed" error if the cutter can't go all the way down. The cutter can be removed and disassembled to remove the problem. Caution should be exercised. There are washers and springs on the cutter face plate guide screws which have to be removed.
