    Well, the shredder will work but it has a grinding sound and it will take only a couple of inches of paper before it stops and I have to pull out and reinsert the paper. That is with no more than one or two sheets.

    Another brand uses oil to lubricate the teeth and the gears. Would that help?

    there is paper stuck in the shredder and the reverse button is not working

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2014

    I'm in the middle of shredding old phone bills, from the past 4 years. I was shredding 4 sheets of paper when suddenly, in the middle of that batch, the shredder just stopped. I tried to reverse it, but nothing happened. The paper is now stuck in the shredder, and there is no noise when I turn it on or when I try to reverse it. Nothing happens. I tried to get shreds out of the coils underneath, but that did not help, either.

Check for stuck paper and remove if any. Then check if motor is ok with a multimeter and also main switch.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: when on

Make sure there is no paper blocking the sensors. Otherwise you may have a bad sensor or switch.

My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

My shredder is not working does it have a fuse somewhere


The shredder may be so clogged, with plastic for example, that the motor overheated and went into thermal shutdown. It also is possible that the input sensor is blocked. My experience with shredders that have been used to shred any type of plastic or plastic coated paper is that they are a complete mess inside.

The shredder doesn't automatically shred anymore. How do I set it so the "eye" works and it shreds automatically without me holding down the button?


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

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. :)

Jammed in Auto, but works fine in reverse. How to unjam?


Continue to alternate between auto and reverse a number of times. Try to shred narrower pieces of paper at opposite ends to see if it can trigger the auto trigger wire. All else fails, carefully take the shredding part apart and you may find a hugh paper jam underneath.
