Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Please tell me, what maker name (Singer, Janome, etc.) and what model, of machine are you working on?

I get the picture that you are doing adjustments on the timing yourself - always a somewhat exacting task to get done right. How is the cutter now not working? partially activating, apparently completely jammed and inoperative, or perhaps obviously working by the sound but not actually cutting the thread in effect?
