Novi Tech PS-014 Shredder metal gears

I know it's a cheap unit, but I hate to throw things away that might be repaired reasonably.
The metal gears at the shaft ends opposite the motor are shot. Any idea where to get replacements.
NoviTech and Fellowes model no.s look the same . Are they??

You should be able to flip up the cd cover and visibly see the sensors in the center of the paper entry(look like little LED lightbulbs) Clean with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alchohol. This should solve your problem. If it doesn't you probally have a burned out sensor. call 1-800-945-4545 to check with customer service.

If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.

Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

SOURCE: novitech shredder

After clearing the jam (with the unit unplugged!), let the unit cool completely, then try using it again. A notice on the nameplate inside my unit says: "2 min on/4 min off." Apparently, a thermal cutoff keeps it from overheating by automatically preventing continued operation that might otherwise melt the parts. So heed the directions. I had the same problem with my NoviTech Model PS-026/B2 crosscut shredder (max: 5 sheets, 1 credit card). Also, make sure the motor mechanism is seated square and flush on the bin. I tried testing it out of the bin, and the green ready light wouldn't come on -- for a good reason: safety. (I still have all of my fingers, thanks to that!) Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

Where do I get replacement gear for the shredder?


try a appliance repair shop for a supply agent for parts
office supply shops that sell shredders may be able to give you the names of repair agents
if it is more than 5 years old then junk it and get a new one as the cutter rollers will be blunt and probably the reason the plastic gear failed

Purchase gears


This is an inexpensive, light duty shredder. Products such as this are considered 'throw-away products' ; when they break, you throw it away and buy a new one. Larger, more expensive commercial shredders are repairable.

Staples SPL QW1200 shredder - how to disassemble it to get full access to blades?


remove the bin, remove thr screws that hold the bottom on (to get the cord free) then flip it over so its sitting on top remove the screws around the side walls to the top and remove the top shredder. with the shredder still up side down there are 8 screws around the outside edge (in the 1/4 holes) remove those and you can seprate the housing from the blades and motor. in the one i have the blades in the center are bent and the guides are broke i am looking for replacement parts or another for spare parts good luck i am a automotive tech, and i hate to throw things out just because ond small small part is broke but the hardest thing is finding parts. we live in a world where we are in couraged to reclye but we throw so much away because it is almost imposible to find parts or when you do the replacment parts cost more than a new one. sorry for the rant but i like to see people trying to fix things

GBC shredmaster 1150x shredder now runs only in reverse. And when I press the "reverse" button, the green "forward/shred" light comes on, rather than the red "reverse" light....


The first thing that comes to mind is that the switch is faulty and that one of the contacts has come loose and is shorting across the reverse contacts. There is little else that can go wrong with a shredder, so in this case try replacing the switch.
