SOURCE: when on

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

SOURCE: staples spl-710sh paper shredder stopped shredding

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

SOURCE: Drive gear for staples shredder Model# SPL-770M is worn

is it the drive gear or is it that the shreader is dull that makes the shreader sluggish?

SOURCE: Automatic switch does not shut off after shredding

These shredders have a "paper in" sensor. This is either optical or mechanical.
Sounds like the sensor is blocked and therefore "thinks" there is still more paper left, and this is why it keeps going.

Before you do anything UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
The sensor is located about in the middle and at the level of the blades.
If it's mechanical, you should see a little finger, else it is electronic.
Shine a light in the area and you should be able to spot where the blockage is.
A shot with compressed ais usually gets rid of the offending particles.

After you're finished working on it, set it back securely on the basket and plug it in.

STAPLES SPL-TMC 12A SHREDDER


There is an optical sensor that needs to be cleaned. It is usually at the middle of the slot where you put paper to be shredded. Use canned air to blow out both holes (one on each side of the slot).
Hope this helps.

What lubricant do you use for a Staples SPL-XC240D and where do you lubricate it?


Staples actually sells shredder lubricant. It comes in a small squeeze bottle. You actually are lubricating the shredder teeth themselves to keep them sharp and prolonging their lifetime. You simply take a piece of paper you are about to shred, run a bead of the lubricant across the sheet and feed it into the shredder. Done!

It may be clogged with shredded paper. With power removed, examine the shredding mechanism and remove any bits you find. You may not be able to remove all of the bits but enough to restore operation.

You can try cleaning it and maybe limiting shredding to one sheet at a time.

Model SPL-TXC15A. Why doesn't it operate?


The shredder may have gone into thermal overload as a result of trying to shred something unsuitable, such as a credit card or as a result of prolonged use. Sometimes operation resumes after a "cooling off" period. At others, the thermal overload shutdown is permanent.
