    What's the error message? Generally these things are bulletproof; with the machine on, can you manually move the knife? What about with the machine off? If you can move it with it off but not on, then yes, it's probably the head. If the coil was hanging you might still be able to move it a fraction.

    Ya they have been great, blade literally moves freely with no resistance,lil copper sleeve looks seized and just FYI anyone with a summa s class, tech told me to lube the sleeves about every 30 days , keep things working even smoother, I never did, was never told, think that's what got me, I'll cranker up to 40 for fast plotting, then it happened, thanks for the replies, and yes I love my summa of the opus with my Mimaki , contours amazing !
