    Ours will not turn off either. We have tried the "air blowing" to noavail. We have tried the "cleaning sheets" and "paper with oil", still to noavail.

If you look at the blades, some are likely bent (probably the middle ones) causing the machine to not drop the clippings which makes it think that there's paper to be shredded. It's a common problem with this shredder and there's no fixing it because the company doesn't offer replacement parts. The shredder is an overpriced piece of junk. I bought mine at Walmart but our local store doesn't even carry them anymore because of all of the returns they've had.

Why wont my staples titanium shredder continuously shred?


Not giving a model number, it's hard to say. But quite probably after use for 20 mins, the machine starts getting hot, and then it shuts down while the machine cools down.

I had the same issue with a shredder of mine. It prevents the machine burning itself out.

If you want one that just keeps going and going without heat issues, you have to pay more for a better shredder. Unfortunately.

My handyman took apart my Champion WQ120D paper shredder to remove the checkbook that was jammed. But it looked to him as if some transisters were burned. Once together again, minus a plastic shim at the...


It sounds like the shredder overloaded when you tried to shred the checkbook. If there is a smell of burned electronics this probably means that the shreader is dead. The plastic shims have nothing to do with the turning on and off of the shredder. Next time buy a shredder that is rated for at least 7-8 sheets, indicating a more powerful motor and sturdier blades. If the current shredder was repairable, it would be cost prohibitive over buying a replacement. Sorry for the bad news.

The shredder was paper jammed


Hi,

Ensure the wastebasket is empty then move power switch to the REVERSE position. This will reverse the jammed paper out of the shredder. If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between REVERSE and AUTO (l) positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through the shredder. If the shredder jams in reverse mode, move the switch to AUTO (l), depress the manual forward button located on the center of the shredder head and allow to run for five seconds. If jam does not clear, move switch to REVERSE again and allow to run for five seconds.

Repeat this process until jam is cleared. If necessary, turn off shredder and use care to grasp the paper and carefully pull out to clear jam. Once cleared, move switch to AUTO (l) to continue shredding. The jamming may be happening because the cutting cylinder needs to be oiled.

Follow instructions to oil your shredder;

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three time.

Regards.
