Question about Fellowes (R) OD1500C High-Performance Personal Confetti-Cut Shredder
When I turn on the machine, the blades spin, but there is a "clunking" - both sound and feel. It jams on even 1 sheet of paper. Seems like a gear is stripped.
Have hade the machine for several years, but not a lot of use.
I am thinking of taking apart the head, but don't know where to get a manual or parts.

SOURCE: Where can I get new blades?
usually these plastic pieces break from the machine jamming you really should call Fellowes customer service at 1-800-945-4545 and speak with them. They may be able to resolve your problem with a little more information on your unit.

there are what is called strippers that ride in between the teeth to keep paper from building up. they are plastic and can break after awhile. sounds like you have some of the stripper combs broken.

There is a screw hidden under one of the stick on labels. Remove that and the top comes just fine. I got it torn apart, completely cleaned of debris but the rollers still don't turn. I noticed an electrical arc when the switch is pressed so the unit is toast.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I found the hidden screw and was able to get inside. I know what's wrong with it now and hope to get it fixed. "
2 probably causes
to check this 1st unplug the machine
now take the top off ,there are 2 screws underneath the front edge of the cover assessable when the door is open, and 2 on the back you will want to back the shreddr up to a table when you take off the top (the sensors and switches are all still connected so this takes the stress off of the wires)
now you will need to remove the blade guards there are screws at the left and right ends of the guards,
once these are removed you should have a pretty good view of the blades, look for any visible obstruction (part of a binder clip or paper clip or metal closure from an envelope for example)
if this wasn't the cause try this
on the side of the blades there is a fan wheel that is connected to the motor. When you turn the fan with your hand you can manually turn the blades, typically you will be able to turn it to a given point and then it will be increasingly hard to turn, you might also notice that the bar on the outer edge of the blades begins to bend at this point. These bars seem to break under fairly low stress and having one break will also produce the symptoms you described. replacing one of those is a costly repair, (cost is largely because it is very time consuming,)
