When resetting the Cricut Expression, am I suppose to move the blade mechanism back to the right, far enough for it to push in the red button?

No, you press the red button and then move the carriage back in place.

1) First, turn your machine on with no cartridge loaded. Then you are going to roll all your gray dials (the two on the left and the one on the right) down to their lowest setting.

2) Then you will want to grasp the green/gold cylinder blade assembly and use it to pull the entire gray carriage car unit (the one with the Cricut bug on it) along its track to the other side of the machine. Back in the cave where the gray carriage car usually sits there is a red button. Press that button and hold it down for about three seconds. Let go and then move the gray carriage car back into place.

3) This next step will sound a bit odd, but many times it can fix your Cricut. You’re going to roll all your dials all the way up and all the way down three times—three times for each dial.

4) Then you are going to hit the “Cut” button and turn the machine off. Let the machine sit for a few minutes (15-20), load a cartridge, turn it on, and try a practice cut.

If this does not solve your problem, give PC a call (or use the Live Chat option) toll free at 1-877-727-4288 7am to 6pm MST Mon-Fri (make sure you are by your machine) and someone there will walk you through some trouble shooting tips.

I tried your instructions, but the dial on the right just continues to spin and never seems to reach it's "lowest" setting. How do I know when to stop turning it?

I tried this to.
It worked the first time I had to fix it now I get nothing. It still wont cut thru paper all the way. I called the cricut help line & was told I needed a new blade housing, bought one for $30. odd dollars & still do not have a machine that works. I am so frustrated I am considering throwing the thing away.
