Question about Quartet gbc 5220S Shredder

Open Question

We have a 5220S GBC Shredmaster and the cutting blades are all jammed with paper. Is there a way to remove the cutting blades in order to clear out the jam. We have tried about everything but cannot take the cutting blades out to clean them. Thanks.

get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the jammed paper out. (you may need to figure out how to pop off the top cover to get better access to the blades)

SOURCE: GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,

Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene

On, Fwd, Rvs button has stopped working on my Shredmaster 75X. How do I fix this?


First check the power point is still working - plug in another appliance, like a table lamp. If OK check the fuse in the shredder cable plug.

The commonest reason for a shredder stopping is a paper jam, or running the shredder for too long. By 'too long', many shredders will cut-out after 5 minutes continuous working, and the sensor may take 15 minutes to cool down! Read the manual.

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and/or long nosed pliers to poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while.

I'm having a problem with my Quartet gbc 5220S Shredder.What it is doing I have all of the doors shut and everything is in place and it is saying that the door is open. What could be the problem going on?


Check that a piece of paper is not causing any safety switch to be kept open.
make sure lid is fitting correctly.

It will not grab the paper; need to press forwared


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

My shredder is stuck in reverse. How do I get it to go forward?


Unplug, open and remove all partly shreded paper fron the underside, then try it again. If it is hot to the touch, let it cool for about 15 minutes before trying it again.

Taking the top off a Shredmaster cc55


They hide some screws pretty good. Also, try with a putty knife to gently pry arouond the cover seam. Their is always a puzzel to keep end users from DIY.
