SOURCE: Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running

the gear inside the shredder must be broken. This is the wheel that connects the motor to the blades. its much cheaper to buy a new one that try to repair this.

SOURCE: I have an Omnitech OT-535BL

This unit can also overheat and automatically shuts down when it does; to be thorough--simply unplug, empty the wastebasket, turn upside down, remove any remaining paper from blades, plug back in, and leave it alone for 30-60 minutes. Try again.

It's not an industrial shredder and has a low daily capacity, designed only for small office use.

Omnitech 14 sheet shredder is jammed and won't take paper less than year old tried to call omnitech support and get no answer just recording that they are closed any ideas


Unplug it, open it up and clear the jam, reassemble and give it a try, and try not to shred too many pages at once and make sure that you empty the lower part so it doesn't pick up already shredded material and jam up again.

How do you removed jam paper in the schredder


1) pull what you can of the jammed paper out. Make sure the shredder is unplugged whenever trying to work on or in the unit.
2) Then liberally soak the remaining jam with shredder oil and let it sit for 15-20minutes.
3) Try to pull out what you can again. Use tweezers or pliers if available.
4) Then first start the shredder in reverse and then alternate for a few seconds between forward and reverse.
5) If it is still jammed repeat all of the steps as necessary.

Why does my shredder run when there is no paper, but stops as soon as I insert paper into the slot?!


You may have paper stuck in the blades and its jamming.try forward and reverse to free it up or you may have the head unit on the can faced the wrong way. Pull it out and turn head around and than try. I know on some shredders if the head unit does not fit on the right way it wount push down the safety switch and it wount run.

Shredder is jammed. Won't work.


If the shredder has power, the sheet detector may be blocked by a scrap of paper. Also, cross cut shredders that are an integral unit are best cleaned by turning them upside down to get access to the mechanism. Finally, if the motor became very hot an internal thermal fuse may have opened in which case the shredder will have to be replaced.

Omnitech shredder model ot--exc10a , shredder runs but when insert paper to shred it stops, pull out paper and it runs non stop!


Sounds like there's blockage between rollers and it also jams the sensor so auto function stops working. You will need to clear out as much jammed paper as you can using tweezers. Inspect the centre of the feed opening, there should be sensor which must be clear of blockages and moving freely. So clear any stuck paper with tweezers, in addition you can soak any jammed paper with WD-40 and unit should be good as new. Although if sensor arm is damaged then replacement of such sensor is unavoidable.

When a shredder gets jammed, the only effective repair is to remove power and pick out the jammed material bit by bit

Omnitech 10 sheet shredder keeps running constantly after a page or pages have been completely shredded. I have to stop it and start it manually.


Shredders have to be cleaned periodically to remove bits of paper that may be blocking the sensor that detects when paper has been inserted. If you turn the shredder mechanism upside down, you can see the bits of paper and, with power off, you can pick them out. I find tweezers are a useful tool for this
