Question about Quartet gbc 30S Shredder

1 Answer

My GBC shredder has slowed to a snail's pace and won't turn off.

I've used it at my home almost daily ffor several years for mail with no problems. But just within the last month, it has gotten slower and slower to where I can even smell the motor burning and it won't switch off on its own. Might it need oil? I've never oiled it. If so where would I put the oil? Or might those oil sheets be better? OR did something become dislodged when my dog dumped it over repeatedly? If I were to open it up might I be able to fix something? Thanks for whatever ideas you can give.

I guess I have to say Thanks but No thanks. The gal from the company said that most likely the small piece inside the blades got broken off when my dog kept dumping the container so that it can no longer turn off on its own. As far as its slowness, maybe oil or age was the issue. Anyway I was able to find a similar style on line and already purchased one. BUT I will definitely remember your site for my next repair. Do you just do tech equipment or is other small electrical equipment included as well??? My thanks for your response.

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

Hi I have a GBC Shredder, made by swingline, model GLX2030. Since this morning the shredder didnt stop! Normally the shredder work only when we put paper into...but today we have to push the ''ON'' button...


There is an infeed sensor that isn't being made for auto on which is just a simple flipper switch and if it doesn't work it is because there is paper jamming it. Unplug it and turn it over where the blades are and see if clogged up and if so than put back on and reverse it and than forward again until it releases if it has a reverse ,reverse it. If no reverse unplug and use a narrow object to clear from the bottom side

GBC shredmaster 1150x shredder now runs only in reverse. And when I press the "reverse" button, the green "forward/shred" light comes on, rather than the red "reverse" light....


The first thing that comes to mind is that the switch is faulty and that one of the contacts has come loose and is shorting across the reverse contacts. There is little else that can go wrong with a shredder, so in this case try replacing the switch.

GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,


Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene
