    Start with a screw driver and upgrade to a hammer/saw combination? Seriously, though, can you find a manufacturer and model number on the shredder to facilitate finding a manual?

Shredder works in reverse,but not forward.

It's most likely a jam or a blocked sensor. With the shredder unplugged, try removing all small pieces of paper with a pair of tweezers or tiny flathead screwdriver. Also, try spraying the shredder with a can of compressed air to blow out any small pieces of paper or dirt that could be blocking the sensor.

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?

Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

OM01288 zerojam shredder continuously runs when power (auto) is on but stopps and goes into reverse when paper is inserted.

There are two phototransistors and LED pairs in the CD and paper paths. They detect paper and turn on the motor. Clean these sensor/LEDs. If cleaning the sensor/LEDs does not fix the problem, then you might need to replace them. Do not work on the circuitry while the shredder is plugged in. It is NOT isolated from the power line.

can't solve the problem, but wonder if I could get an owners manual for this same model (SPL-TMC16A)

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?

Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Shredder will only go in reverse. Waste bin full warning coming on. Waste bin is empty.

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
or you can
switch the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred.

Papper jam

Try adding a lube, such a WD40, it may reduce the friction enough to break free. Spray it above and below and as needed during the operation.
Work the jam back and forth, removing what you can as it pops out, power off the machine before reaching into the blades.

Hope this helps

Don't know how to oil or which oil to use.

Best Bet is yo go to your local office supply store. They will have special packasegs of Lubricating Sheets that you run thru the shredder as though it were paper. No fuss, No muss.

My Aurora AS1010TX paper shredder will not shred paper. It will work in reverse.

If you want to attemp to take the machine apart, there should be a small spoked wheel called a pulse sensor that runs through U-shaped black device.

Blow this out as well as all electric devices inside.

Have a Staples SPL-XC200d Paper Shredder. The 'add oil' light is on...but have added oil repeatedly. Does not need more oil. Have also unplugged overnight, thinking that would 'reset' the computer, no...

After you have added the shredder oil, you have to hold down the "Lubricate" button for about 5 seconds. This resets the counter and it will remind you to add oil when you have gone through about 250 more pages. Note: holding down the "Lubricate" button for 5 seconds will reset the counter and make the message disappear whether you add the oil or not, but it is highly recommended that you use the oil.
