I'm going to say it needs oiling. Try oiling the gears and cutting blades. You can buy paper shredder oil at Office Depot or Office Max.

Embassy shredder keeps running after it's done shredding. It won't stop running.

Hi Brenda:
My shredder, different make, occasionally has the same problem, especially when I try to put too many sheets of paper through at one time.
It happens because the paper jams in the cutter wheels and holds
a switch lever in the on position.
Step 1) Use the reverse switch (mine has one) to back the paper up a bit, then switch it to forward. Repeat this a few times and it might clear itself.

Step 2) If step 1 did not work, unplug the machine and use needle nose pliers, a small swrew driver, or any other handy tool, and remove all of the paper bits from the cutter assemble. Once this is done, it should work fine.

How do i clear jammed cutter blades

Does the shredder have a reverse button ?

If it has, just switch between reverse and forward a couple of times.

If that does not work it may have to be dismantled and the cutters turned by hand as you pull the paper out. Disconnect the power first though.

Its not working and shredder wont turn on

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while. Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

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. :)

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working

Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here:

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here:

Doesn't work going forward only in reverse

sounds like you have a sensor problem. is it automatic reversing on jamb? if so sensor is defective, or there is a bind causing sensor to reverse only, a bent shaft could cause that

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model

Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Sounds like the cutter is jammed. Do you ever feed staples or clips in it? Will it reverse? If not, the power borad is burned out.
