If you want to attemp to take the machine apart, there should be a small spoked wheel called a pulse sensor that runs through U-shaped black device.

Blow this out as well as all electric devices inside.

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

It does not want to shred at all


good you posted in fax machines. you do not want them to shred. if a shredder wont shred the entrance switch is glogged with paper dust or needs to be replaced. it is the sensor that sees the paper when you put it in

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?


Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Where do you put the oil in the Fellowes C-420Cx shredding machine ? thank you


The **** where you put the paper in is where you can pour some shredder oil onto the cutting blades....once done, just occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper you are going to shred.

A hair pin was put through our shredder by mistake and it became jammed. We cleared out the shredder and removed the hairpin however now the shredder does not operate. It will operate in reverse if you...


Yes small shredders don't like to shred metal.
You have probably blown the pcb inside the machine...would need to know make and model to provide further access for parts.

Shredder will only go in reverse. Waste bin full warning coming on. Waste bin is empty.


Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
or you can
switch the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred.

Champion shredder WQ120D will not shut down after shredding but continues to run . must move to center position to shut down


If you look at the blades, some are likely bent (probably the middle ones) causing the machine to not drop the clippings which makes it think that there's paper to be shredded. It's a common problem with this shredder and there's no fixing it because the company doesn't offer replacement parts. The shredder is an overpriced piece of junk. I bought mine at Walmart but our local store doesn't even carry them anymore because of all of the returns they've had.

The shredder runs perfectley in the reverse direction, but does not run at all in the shredding direction


I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it
