After clearing the jam (with the unit unplugged!), let the unit cool completely, then try using it again. A notice on the nameplate inside my unit says: "2 min on/4 min off." Apparently, a thermal cutoff keeps it from overheating by automatically preventing continued operation that might otherwise melt the parts. So heed the directions. I had the same problem with my NoviTech Model PS-026/B2 crosscut shredder (max: 5 sheets, 1 credit card). Also, make sure the motor mechanism is seated square and flush on the bin. I tried testing it out of the bin, and the green ready light wouldn't come on -- for a good reason: safety. (I still have all of my fingers, thanks to that!) Hope this helps.

There is a high, loud buzzing noise when you feed more than one sheet into the shredder. The paper doesn't feed and the shredder needs to be unplugged to stop the noise. Do I need a new one?


With power removed, inspect the shredding mechanism and remove all residue. If you shredded coated paper or plastic in the past, you may have to scrape out the remains.

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

How to Oil a Paper Shredder shredder_oil.jpg Paper Shredder OilProper shredder maintenance is required by all paper shredder manufacturers to maintain warranty coverage. Perhaps the most effective way to care for your shredder is to oil the cutting heads regularly. Why should I Oil my Paper Shredder?

The frequency of shredder oil applications is determined by a number of factors. First of all cross cut shredders must be oiled more often than strip cut shredders do. A cross cut paper shredder will require regular applications of shredder oil while a strip cut can go for a longer period of time without decreased performance. Secondly, paper shredders that are used more will need more lubrication. A paper shredder under heavy usage will need oil about once every four hours, while one under normal use will only require oil once or twice a month. Most manufacturers recommend oiling the cutters once every 30 minutes of accumulative shredding, but an easy way to remember is just to oil your paper shredder every time you change the bag. The type of material as well as amounts fed at once can also effect performance and lead to the need for oil.

Directions
You should only use specifically designed shredder oil to oil your paper shredder. This oil is designed to lubricate precision heat treated shredder cylinders, and any other lubricant or oil will void the manufacturers warranty. So don't use WD-40 or the like to oil your paper shredder.

Shredder oil can come in both liquid and aerosol varieties. However, the most common is liquid shredder oil.

The first way to oil your shredder is to spray or squirt lubricant into the opening and onto the cutting heads. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly onto the cutting head in a fine stream. This is done through the paper entry throat. Take 1-2 seconds to oil from one side of the opening to the other. Turn the machine in reverse for about 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to all parts of the cutting head. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil.

The other, and perhaps most common, way to oil your paper shredder is illustrated in the image above. Simply spread a small amount of shredder oil onto a piece of paper in a zig-zag type motion. Make sure that you spread the oil over the entire sheet. (NOTE: you don't need to soak the paper in oil, just ensure total and even coverage.) Feed this sheet through the shredder and then operate the machine in the reverse mode for a few seconds. This will make sure the oil is dispersed throughout the shredders cutting cylinders. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil. You may want to repeat this procedure depending on the results, and is recommended for up to three applications to be assured of thorough oiling.

You should oil your cross cut shredder on a regular basis. If you are shredding a small quantity such as only 50 sheets a week or if you are using a small shredder, then you should oil your shredder every other day. If you are shredding a large quantity such as hundreds of sheets, then oil after 30 minutes of usage or after you empty the bag.

Start oiling your paper shredder now. The shredder will run smoother, faster, and put less strain on the overall motor, gears, and bearings.

My VF 1012mx paper shredder won't feed the paper in order to shred it. Green light is on but nothing happens when I put the paper in.


Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

Knocking noise when shredding paper


Hello,

Cross-cut shredders require monthly oiling of the cutting cylinders to maintain proper operation. Failure to oil the blades regularly could result in excessive noise during operation.

Oiling Your Shredder's Cutting Blades:

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three times.

I hope the above helps....

Good luck.

The shredder will not automatically shut off. After you have finished feeding the documents to be shreeded the machine contunues to run and you must manuall shut it off.


depending on what you have available, either a damp paper towel or alcohol wipe, or compressed air will work to clean the sensor eye located top at the center of the paper feed opening, you should see a little dot wipe, or spray these out well, then turn the machine off and back on again.
built up dust from the paper causes the sensor to keep registering that there is paper coming in hence it won't stop on its own.
