New gears are $88.50 plus freight. You won't find any used gears because these usually break first. I can help.

My paper shredder will not shred or grab the paper?


If the motor is spinning, it's probable broken teeth on the drive gear. The drive gears are usually the first thing to break on a shredder.
If the motor doesn't spin. The paper may be clogged in the grinder claws. You may have to turn the shredder over (after you remove the power cable from the wall outlet). Then remove the papers from underneath.
Hope this helps.

My shredder has the sound like it is working, but it is not shredding.


From your description, it sounds like when you insert the paper the motor turns on, but the paper is not pulled into the shredder, indicating the two shredder cylinders are not turning. The most likely cause of this is a stripped (missing teeth) main nylon gear. These can be replaced but require some effort.

If the motor runs but the cutting teeth dont turn then you have stripped or broken a gear in the drive train. You can get replacement parts from Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

One of the gears in my sb-97cs has broken. The motor runs but the broken gear prevents the teeth from rotating and pulling paper into shred. I have spoken with people at Fellowes on the phone and they have...


I have the same problem with a stripped gear, to remove the top i found it best to place the shredder on its back, then with a pozi screw driver there are 5 screws securing the top in place, these are inside the shredder above the paper bin, 1 in each corner and 1 in the centre.

Hope this helps.

Rick,

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

The shredder jammed (too much paper) then stopped and won't shred. It makes a noise, but when I insert paper, it won't shred. Is there a reset button? I picked paper out of the blades with a pair of...


Chances are, the overfeed caused the teeth of the gear that operates off of the motor to break.
This is very common in less expensive machines. I don't know if OM will let you return it because I don't know there policy. Most of the time retailers will attribute broken gears to abuse, which in turn is not warranted. These machines are mainly mass produced in China and obviously are very cheap. The labor and part (s) to repair are more expensive than replacing the machine.
If you do, look for a higher quality German machine i.e. Intimus, Olympia, HSM or Dahle. They cost more but they have a nationwide service arena and parts are always available.

Shear pin ??


You most likely have several teeth broken off the drive gear that drives the cutting block. Not too difficult to replace but you need some special tools. A deep well socket (I think it's about a 3/8") to remove the cutting block and replace the broken gear. The gear should be available from a Fellowes dealer, or they might sell it to you direct if there is no dealer near you.

 

Let me know if this helps.
