Shredder is jammed. Won't work.


If the shredder has power, the sheet detector may be blocked by a scrap of paper. Also, cross cut shredders that are an integral unit are best cleaned by turning them upside down to get access to the mechanism. Finally, if the motor became very hot an internal thermal fuse may have opened in which case the shredder will have to be replaced.

Comet Shredder Comet CM-C-100 will not turn on.


The 'tension ' bar is probably to ensure you have not put in too many sheets at a time, and cuts out if you do. Look at how the bar is fixed at one end then try to reconnect the other end. A good shake of the unit should loosen and free whatever is rattling. If you cannot fix it I doubt Comet will give you much help

Won't shread


Will it reverse ??

Unfortunately, the death of these things is mostly attributed to inserting more than the rated number of sheets, in this case 8, and jamming it or burning the motor out

Fix this shredder


The unit is probably clogged up with a bunch of shredded paper. Unplug it ! Clean out the paper using fingers and a knife to get most of the paper clips and paper out then plug it in and run forward and reverse. That's what i do and it works every time.

Works in reverse, but doesn't shred at all


This probably has shredded paper in front of the sensor. You will need to clean out all of the shreddings that have build up on the sides and in the cutter compartment. Make sure to unplug this before you start though. Takes a good half hour to get this all out and you will have to use something like a long screw driver to get to it all.

How to Oil a Paper Shredder shredder_oil.jpg Paper Shredder OilProper shredder maintenance is required by all paper shredder manufacturers to maintain warranty coverage. Perhaps the most effective way to care for your shredder is to oil the cutting heads regularly. Why should I Oil my Paper Shredder?

The frequency of shredder oil applications is determined by a number of factors. First of all cross cut shredders must be oiled more often than strip cut shredders do. A cross cut paper shredder will require regular applications of shredder oil while a strip cut can go for a longer period of time without decreased performance. Secondly, paper shredders that are used more will need more lubrication. A paper shredder under heavy usage will need oil about once every four hours, while one under normal use will only require oil once or twice a month. Most manufacturers recommend oiling the cutters once every 30 minutes of accumulative shredding, but an easy way to remember is just to oil your paper shredder every time you change the bag. The type of material as well as amounts fed at once can also effect performance and lead to the need for oil.

Directions
You should only use specifically designed shredder oil to oil your paper shredder. This oil is designed to lubricate precision heat treated shredder cylinders, and any other lubricant or oil will void the manufacturers warranty. So don't use WD-40 or the like to oil your paper shredder.

Shredder oil can come in both liquid and aerosol varieties. However, the most common is liquid shredder oil.

The first way to oil your shredder is to spray or squirt lubricant into the opening and onto the cutting heads. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly onto the cutting head in a fine stream. This is done through the paper entry throat. Take 1-2 seconds to oil from one side of the opening to the other. Turn the machine in reverse for about 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to all parts of the cutting head. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil.

The other, and perhaps most common, way to oil your paper shredder is illustrated in the image above. Simply spread a small amount of shredder oil onto a piece of paper in a zig-zag type motion. Make sure that you spread the oil over the entire sheet. (NOTE: you don't need to soak the paper in oil, just ensure total and even coverage.) Feed this sheet through the shredder and then operate the machine in the reverse mode for a few seconds. This will make sure the oil is dispersed throughout the shredders cutting cylinders. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil. You may want to repeat this procedure depending on the results, and is recommended for up to three applications to be assured of thorough oiling.

You should oil your cross cut shredder on a regular basis. If you are shredding a small quantity such as only 50 sheets a week or if you are using a small shredder, then you should oil your shredder every other day. If you are shredding a large quantity such as hundreds of sheets, then oil after 30 minutes of usage or after you empty the bag.

Start oiling your paper shredder now. The shredder will run smoother, faster, and put less strain on the overall motor, gears, and bearings.

My Tech Solutions TS4500 paper shredder will shred approximately 1/2 page of one or several sheets of paper. But at that point it chokes and will not shred any further. It will back the unshred portion...


My experience has been that when a shredder chokes it usually is trying to tell you the bin is full but a cross-cut shredder is less susceptible. I do have a heavy duty cross-cut shredder that gets rather wonky when suffering from indigestion. Check whether the amount of bin content is affecting yours.
