Try to find the Brushes that run the motor...You may have to remove the Body.... There are many variations to the Mounting some have Screws others have clips you push or pull Once the body is Off..look for the brushes.It will be a small square of Brass, and inside will be a spring and a block of Carbon with a wire attached,.. The Carbon Brush runs on the Brass section of the Motor with the spring holding it in... Both have a Covering Clip.

Look at the covering clip first.. is it pushing hard enough against the Brush.... if notbend so it does... If it DOES... then take the briush out, and run the end that goes against the rotor on a fine file or sand paper... What you want here is to clean the tip

Once the tip is clean and th Spring Cover is set... replave everything and try again....

IF it does not work I would suggest taking it back to where you got it and ask them to fix it...
But I would guess this is your problem.....
One other thing.... While you had it apart, I would check everything, giving moving Parts a drop of oil...

Other than this I am not sure what to suggest.
The Pic is of a pair of Brushes so you know what you are looking for... I can give you Pics of other parts but not knowing exactly what motor it is... I could put you off track with it.

Good luck

I would try a hair dryer to see if it loosens. Could have crayon shavings in it.

It depends on the machine the expression 2 the expression and the little machines use markers that fit into the blade housing slot. The explore machines use special markers put out by cricut or there are some called slick writers that fit in the accessory clamp.

Hello, Jo -

From information I have found on other websites, apparently the Erbauer brand of tools are made by ScrewFix.

I found a ScrewFix Community Forum online with questions about Erbauer replacement parts. This is the link to the forum:
Read the questions and comments on both pages.

From that information it seems that ScrewFix and Erbauer provide no replacement parts.

Through the eBay resolution process you can probably have your purchase price refunded.

Is this a baby blanket that you need to piece together? If so post a picture and maybe I can help. But otherwise I am not sure what kind of help you are asking for.

Is the transformer getting hot? Sounds like there might be a short circuit in the system. You'd need to put an ohm meter across the tracks (or a Digital Multimeter (DMM) set to ohms) to verify the short and then look around for some electrical path between the tracks.

You should switch to a size or two smaller needle when you switch yarns.
