If it has been under 30 days take it back to best buy and tell them what is wrong. Then exchange it for a new one.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Staples shredder Model: SPL-826X IT SUDDENLY STOPPED GOING FORWARD. ONLY RUNS ON REVERSE. 3/31/11


Your problem is same as mine. I took the shredder apart and notice that the first dented wheel moved by the motor is stripped. I called the product support number and they said the manufacturer do not sale parts for this model. The shredder need to be send to them. At the end, it will probably cost more than buying a new one.
I am trying to find the part on the internet.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Shredder won't run


I had similar problem. I took unit apart and checked the motor by hotwiring it after checking voltage coming off the circuit board connections that the motor is connected to. Motor did not run until I tapped it a couple times with a hammer. Seems ok now.

NoviTech Paper Shredder will not feed paper forward.


I had the same problem with my Novitech Model: PS-026/B2 only working in reverse but not forward. So I decided to take it apart and see if I could find any loose wires, broken parts etc. Keep in mind I am not a paper shredder mechanic, but I was able to fix it, at least for the time being, and here is how:

1. Unplug the machine, and I mean it. Make sure you unplug the machine before you start any fixin'. Unplug the machine!

2. I unscrewed the 7 screws located at the bottom of the case

3. I carefully separated the cases and made sure I did not allow any tension on the few wires that span the case halves

4. With the can of electronics duster I use for my computer keyboard, I sprayed all of the electric contacts, making sure I did not spray any of the grease at the gears. I poked the straw in all of the switch housings and the motor.

5. If you feel a little adventurous, you can remove the 6 screws that hold the cover and safety switch in place. At this point pay attention to how the safety switch arm is positioned ( take a picture if you have to) so it will be in the correct position during assembly. Remove the cover and look for anything that could be caught in the shredders. Remove any foreign matter with tweezers or needle nose pliers. Replace the safety switch and cover, make sure the switch arm is in the same position before you took it apart.

6. Put the two case halves together making sure there are no wires pinched inbetween. Put the seven screws back where they belong and tighten snugly ( do not over tighten cause you will break the plastic, guaranteed!)

7. Place the machine on the waste bucket and plug it in. And voila the motor should start buzzing and humming like it was brand new.

Office max paper shredder switch


If you are referring to the paper feed sensor switch in the paper throat it sounds like the pc board or switch itself may be bad. I could troubleshoot a little better if I actually had you on the phone. A Customer Service Rep can help you at 1-800-945-4545.

Ativa SPL 1506X not working


I had the same problem. I took the machine apart and found out that the main gear running the rollers was defective. All of the cogs were broken or worn out, If you can find parts it can be fixed?

Guys,

Here is an update of the problem:

Using the shredder for continuous extended periods causes the motor to overheat in which case the motor just shuts off automatically.

Leave it for a while to cool down and resume normal usage - this should make it work again.

There is a switch inside the shredder that needs to be activated by a notch in the waste basket. Take extra care to aligh the notch with the slot otherwise the shredder will not work.

No theres the fix!
