SOURCE: OfficeMax OM99729 Shredder with bad gear

If it happened within a year, you should have just had the warranty replace it. We had it happen after nearly 11 months, it was replaced within two days.

your auto insertion sensor (electric eye) is probably dirty or malfunctioning. clean or replace the "eye" or disable auto-reverse on jamb feature.

SOURCE: I have a paper jam in my OfficeMax paper shredder.

Usually for a jam you just need to reverse it. If it is really jammed you may have a staple caught in there or too many sheets of paper. If you unplug it and then see if you can pull out the jam. If it is a staple you may need to use needle nose pliers to get enough of a grip to get it out. If this has seen heavy use and lots of multiple pages then you could have burned out the motor. These are not much more complicated that scissors so there isn't much to do to fix them. Most don't like staples or more than 2-3 pages max at a time (if that many) even if they claim more than that.

Motor runs but teeth do not

Some of these units use plastic gears on the shredders and motors. They can strip or it could be a shear pin on the drive shaft or gears that breaks when something hard is put in the machine.

There is a lever inside the shredder that is connected to a micro switch that detects the paper. Its usually located in the center of the opening where you insert the paper. This switch will make a very slight click if you turn the shredder off and insert a sheet of paper at the opening. If you can hear it click and it still doesn't work the motor could be defective.

My shredder is showing the bin is full when it is empty - how to I fix it?

Depending on the shredder model, there is a sensor of some kind telling it that it is full. The two possible solutions are to unplug it and plug it back in, and to try to find the sensor and do what needs to be done to make it not active.

My shredder stoped working

My shredder was under warranty--not officemax warranty--so I sent it back to the company that manufactured the shredder, at my expense. They sent me a new one at their expense. Had I added a few more dollars to the shipping for a new shredder. I never could get my to accept paper or lubricating sheet. Did not open the exchanged shredder until 2 days ago and so far it works, however the original one worked for about a week before stopping. I believe--should I have the need I will purchase a different brand.
I hope that helps.

Bin full door open

I found the nylon "bin full" flapper in the center of the head of the shredder is supposed to trip a microswitch indicating bin full. I removed the flapper and tapped on the switch. It came loose with a puff of paper dust. I replaced the flapper and it's back to good as new. Seems the dust built up around the switch and it was stuck.
