Thanks to all who responded to my question. The solution, it seems was very

Several people reported similar experiences and issues with the specimen
clamp not fitting tightly and that I should clean the clamp or block. My
blocks are clean and I thought the clamp was too... but when I ran a set of
forceps along the inner, upper edge of the clamp a tiny blob of wax was
found. A test block cut normally.

I'm amazed a tiny piece of wax could cause so much  trouble!

Thanks to everyone who offered help.
