Default Can you reverse a wizard?

I put a plate in there that I shouldn't have and now my plates are stuck halfway, I have to take it apart or reverse it somehow, otherwise risk breaking my machine. Has anyone done that? Know how? Is it possible to make the wizard move the plate out backwards the other way?

Hi Girlie!! I'm so sorry that you're having problems with your Wizard. I don't have a Wizard so I can't exactly help, but I thought you might find some info on the Spellbinder's website. Or maybe www.ellenhutson.com. I just wanted to say hi and hope that you are doing well. Hugs!

Thanks Karolyn. I finally got it unstuck. Whew! I'm glad I didn't have to take it apart.

Okay, good. I just found this on the Spellbinder's site:

Help! My sandwich is jammed in the Wizard™. How do I get it out?
On the yoke of the handle is a reversing button or switch. Push in and the movement will reverse (or switch the direction of the lever) as you push or pull the handle. Push the button again to go back to original direction. Getting a sandwich stuck can be caused by pulling the lever back beyond the notch after the sandwich has been engaged under the rollers or by attempting to force a sandwich through the Wizard™ that is too thick.

Yes, you can reverse it, by flipping the black lever near the handle center. When I have done this (only a couple of times), it was pretty tight due to getting my plates so far in before I realized I was too far gone (definitely user error on my part).

If this ends up being the case for you, and you can't flip the black lever easily, try this: put something protective on your desktop/surface. Turn the Wizard on its side, handle side up in the air. Take a piece of rubber grip (like for jars, or carpets) and give it a little elbow grease. Mine pops right into place if I do this, so I hope it helps you, too!

Oh good, you got it! I must have taken too long typing my reply!

Thanks for the tips and the help. It definitely was 'user error' that caused my problem, a great term I'm going to use in the future instead of "I goofed it up!" user error . . . I like that. Goes right along with being 'geographically challenged' instead of 'chronically lost.'
