  2. Clamps of feed hopper/cutter chamber not secured
  3. Particles in feed hopper/cutter chamber
  4. Insufficient gap between rotating* cutters and fixed cutter
  5. Fixed cutter or rotating* cutter blades are wearing/chipping

1. Cutters rotating in reverse
If cutters rotate in reverse, forward/backward will reverse, preventing granulating
  1. Check rotating direction of motor by observing fan area.
  2. Negative phase if direction of rotation in reversed. Switch R-phase and T-phase of cord.
