SOURCE: My Cricut Expression keeps turning on and off.

I have one of these machines stripped down on the bench now with this problem. I have located the fault to a power relay which is sealed but must have burnt contacts as it is not passing the power to the machine to power up. I am still looking for a source of 18 volt coil relays with 10 amp contacts to fix this one. If not I may have to modify the circuit to overcome this problem.

SOURCE: Cricut machines power supplies

18 volts is the voltage and the thing that is most critical to stop the machine burning out.

The 'A' - amperage is the force behind the electricity, 2.0 is a sort of fairly strong person 2.5 amps is a muscle man.

If the piece of equipment needs a muscle man to move it and you use a weaker person, it may not move quite so fast. Good analogy?

Anyway, .5 amps is not going to make that much difference.

Testimonial: "Thanks, just trying to think of a reason why the cut depth decreases as it runs. Still thinking I got a solenoid going bad on the thing."

TheI can not reset the circuit machine all green lights are on


You can call customer support. They will have you install the Cricut Design studio just so you can access the firmware update. You must find a PC to do this - it will not work on your Mac that you use for everything. After your 10 year old PC takes 40 minutes to install and open Studio, you run it and restart your Cricut and all of your green lights stay on. You re-run it just to be sure, and all of your green lights stay on. You call back customer support and they have you cut out the drive belt to disable your Cricut and take a picture of it, then they will send you a refurbished replacement Cricut - white and gray, not white and pink like you own. This was my experience today and my only used twice Cricut is now ready for garbage pickup.

Cricut expression 2 has no power, will not turn on


Any resolution to this issue? I like stone234 have narrowed it down to the cricut not getting power past the power board. I tested the two prongs that feed the red and black power for the main board and no voltage. Cricut Exp 2. Powered on as soon as I plugged it in. Plugged in usb to computer, I didnt have the software so i searched for it then started downloading it and noticed the screen on the unit was frozen. unplugged it and after plugging it back in it wouldn't power back on.

The cricut blade holder doesn´t go up or down.


My housing was not going up or down. Every time i wanted to make a cut it dragged and cut shapes in half. So when I took it apart I pushed it up and down myself and noticed that it was very difficult. So where you see the coils, I lightly sprayed WD40 (my cricut is out of warranty, I would not advise to take apart if you are still under a warranty). I lightly sprayed until it was easy to move up and down. When your done be sure to wipe any access WD40 that dripped to the bottom. This fixed mine and thank goodness because I was close to pulling out my hair! Hope this helps someone else!

My cricut expression keeps turning on and off. Resetting does nothing since it won't stay off or on long enough to actually reset. Any ideas?


I would contact cricut because you may have a defective machine. I had an expression and cut one thing then it froze. We did the reset and that did not resolve the issue. Cricut had me send my machine back and they shipped a new one. Mind you they will put a charge on your credit card only to protect themselves. You just ship yours to them the way they tell you in the one you receive. Let me know if you do not have their contact number.

Dials not working


You may want to try resetting your Cricut to see if that fixes the problem. To reset the Cricut machine, turn the unit off for five minutes. Roll all the dials all the way up and all the way down five times each. Turn the Cricut back on. This is the manufacturer's reset process. Good luck!
