    I have the same model, the Staples SPL-826X. It apears to be jammed. I've cleared the paper jam, but the motor runs and the blades don't turn. Is there a reset button?

SOURCE: Mr.

I found a way to do a fix that should last for awhile. Put the large gear in a vise leaving room to partially knock the small broken gear through. I used a bolt the same size as the hole in the plastic, and tapped it in about 1/4 inch. This pushes some of the small gear through, exposing more of the usable part of it. I then cut (hacksawed) off about 3/8 inch of the broken part, put it back together and it works!..................Good luck, Sparky

Your problem is same as mine. I took the shredder apart and notice that the first dented wheel moved by the motor is stripped. I called the product support number and they said the manufacturer do not sale parts for this model. The shredder need to be send to them. At the end, it will probably cost more than buying a new one.
I am trying to find the part on the internet.

I have a Staples Shredder model SPL-TXC6A (serial 0809026807), which I have been using a lot lately. The auto and reverse buttons will not function, & neither will the forward button.


If you have used it a lot, it may have tripped the thermal fuse. Normally, these reset themselves. One thing to make sure of,, is that the safety switch under the machine is firmly on the pin in the basket under it.

This is a light duty shredder, you can only use it for two minutes!

6-sheet, light-duty, up to 25 uses/day
Runs 2 min on / 4 min off

Spl-1506x shredder only runs in reverse


Daniel:

Unplug the shredder... Take the top off and turn it upside down. Use a screwdriver to take the lower cowling off and look at the motor. If the mounting area where the motor sits looks melted at all, the machine is toast. If the motor mounting area looks good, look at the slot where the paper is inserted... there should be a sensor (that "sees" the paper when you insert it) at the paper slot. Check to see that the sensor isn't damaged.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.
