Default Rubik's solution step 7 question

Hi,
Is there a way to flip just one of the edges at step seven. Both of the algorithms solve for 2 edges flipped. Twice I have got stuck with just 1 edge flipped. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong. Thanks

Hi rm1bow welcome!

Having just one unsolved edge is an impossible position for the Rubiks Cube for step #7, since edges in the last layer must be solved two at a time according to the rules of the cube (symmetry). However, you can sometimes have weird configurations resulting from a cube if you've taken it apart and put it back together incorrectly at some point. Could you post a picture of your cube showing the single unsolved edge?

That could be the problem. I used a tip from another site and removed some of the columns to put on some Vaseline, which made it alot smoother. But I did not think about putting them back on wrong. Here's a pic. Thanks
