My Cricut is making a horrible grinding noise when I turn it on and then it does nothing. What can I do to fix it when a hard reset doesn't work?

My Cricut Personal (an older model) was working fine yesterday. I turned it off and left it, but came back to it 20 min later. I turned it on and ever since whenever I turn it on it makes a whirr, then horrible grinding noise and then nothing. The display just shows the version. None of the buttons yield any response. I have tried a hard reset multiple times yesterday and today. Help!

SOURCE: Grinding Noise

If it's metallic sound you are loosing teeth on a gear or two.  This is caused by lack of lubricant or simply fatigue of the material of the gears.  Don't use it, you can get metal flakes in your food.

Take it in to a repair shop and have it fixed.  The money spent is well worth it because if done correctly will last another 12 years.

SOURCE: HELP!!!!! My zune's buttons are not working!!!!!

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

Make sure the OS is compatible

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.



Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Noise? Louder than normal motor noise? The display is created by the revolving LED board that is connected to a motor. It should be quiet unless you pick it up and give a good listen. Let me assume that you mean that it is normal noise, indicating that the unit is turning. Unplug the power as well as the phone lines from the unit. First, remove the plastic globe. There are 4 points that the globe is connected, two towards the rear and two in front on either side of the control buttons. Press the globe at the front ones and lift towards the rear. After you have removed the globe, remove the three screws that hold the rotor (looks like an "L") to the motor shaft. The LED display is soldered to the rotor. These solder joints break and need to be re-soldered. By adding a small amount of heat as you are bending the display slightly inward, you can repair the connections. Only use low watt solder gun! Re-attach the rotor and globe (unit will not spin with globe off) re-connect the power, press the select button and check out the display. If all connections were made, you will have succeeded. If a line or two are missing, try again!

SOURCE: The beater bar makes a horrible clunking noise when I turn it on

I just came from the repair shop. There is a recurring problem with a bearing coming out. Repair guy turned it on & said that loud noise is a symptom of that exact problem. This is a warranty item, as is the belt & on/off switch. Dyson comes with a 5 year warranty, so call their 800 number to get the name & address of an authorized repair shop.

My microwave makes a grinding noise when running and the turntable doesn't work.


Possible there is friction within the drive , the shaft or the motor. You can remove and RESET the drive. Remove the motor , MANUALLY check the motion of the mechanism which will confirm the case. You c an reset using a bit of lubrication.

I just opened the box from a TV ad purchase of the cricut. When I turn it on the carrier moves to the right and makes a horrible noise. Nothing will work.


Yes, the carriage does move to the right and it makes a funny noise as it moves. The cricut then should light up with display and power light. If yours is not then I would contact Cricut as you may have a defective machine. Just know they will put a charge on your card to ship another machine to you and will remove the charge when you ship your machine with issues back to them.

LCD not working and not all buttons come on


I would contact Cricut as there is a way to reset your machine. Resetting your machine may fix the issue. If it continues after the reset Cricut may ask you to send the machine to them. They will however ship another to you after applying a charge to your card then removing the charge after you ship your machine with issues back to them.

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!
