No power to machine. Power on at outlet.

If power at outlet but no power to machine than the anomaly rests with the wire going to the machine. Use another one.

After a very short usage period (maybe ten pages) the overheat light blinks very slowly alternating with the power light. Why is this happening?

Many shredders are "light duty", which means a page every now and then. They're not designed for dozens and dozens of pages continuously. If you need that capability, you need a heavier duty machine.

The unit requires a complete cleaning and oiling , there is paper shreds jammed at the sides.
Staples or Grand and Toy should have the shredder oil.

If you "unplugged" the machine and let it sit for 1/2 hour and the "overheat" lite still won't go out then you probably fried the pcb inside the can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts advice.

The shredder overheats. The most we can shred are

Have you put any shredder oil or a shredder oil sheet through the machine.

Shredders need oiling to keep the cutters free

Free cutters mean clean cuts and less friction

Staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool

Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

Paper no longer feeds in. Motor works.

Please check the sensor is on or off.
if paper is feeding completely then it means you need to buy a new one.

It stopped working after a big shred. I suspect an overheat. How do I reset it?

it's overheated, after you turn on the shredder, is it working?
if not, that means your shredder's motor is death.
need to buy a new shredder.
