Scorching problem during cutting

My old glowforge has started to act up by badly, scorching patterns that have been repeatedly used without any issues. Even if I speed up the cutting, the scorching is happening. I use the power at 100 and not full in order to avoid this. I don’t want to reduce power because I have also been having problems with it not cutting all the way through. I have repeatedly cleaned the lenses too. I am very frustrated and discouraged with a lot of pressure on me to get games manufactured for a conference and to fill orders through my website.

I figured out what is wrong. Please close.
