Hi, I have checked into this with my shredders. There are plastic "cleaners" that break very easily and when they do, the cutters jam up. No way to get just the cleaners (that I have found). Very poor design. Only thing to do is to clean the rollers from time to time.

All of these types are shredders are mainly junk. I have one that is blowing the fuse. I am an electrical engineer and am trying to see what the fix is.

SOURCE: the paper will not go through my shredder

Can you actually see the cutter blades rotating? I have seen gears broken and you can hear the motor running but no blade movement. Remove the screws lift the top off carefully because their is a short ribbon cable connected to the main board and can easily be damaged. Of course unplug from power outlet first.
Gears and motor can be puurchased.

You have guides or cutter assembly out of alignment. Take it apart and double check before reassembling.

Try soaking the cutters with soapy water, yes it works. Oil after you are done.

Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

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

Shredder blades not turning


A staple or paper clip has jammed the cutter blades.
If there is a reverse switch then reverse to free the cutter blades and remove these objects.

Why doesn't OfficeMax OM99732 shredder work on Auto?


My shredder would not sense paper being inserted and the sensor could not be cleaned. So "Auto" no longer worked but the manual reverse DID work. I opened the thing up, reversed the polarity on the red and black wires on the connector for the main drive motor and VOILA!!! I can use my shredder in manual mode by switching it to REV. Be mindful that this keeps the motor running until it is switched off. This can heat the motor and cause failure so I limit my shredding to 60 seconds then give it a rest so it will cool down. Also there is no emergency reverse so watch your fingers and neck ties.

OM99732 shreader Motor operates but won't take in any paper. Motor is quieter than normal


Hi,

When motor is running, look to see if the cutters are turning. The cutters can be seen by looking into the throat of the shredder. If the cutters aren't moving, the gears may have been stripped and shredder needs to be repaired or replaced.

Good luck.

My office Max OM01287 Shredder will only run in reverse. There appeared to be a jam in the cutters and with tiny tools and very careful grabbing I seem to have cleared the jam from tiny pieces of paper. ...


There is still a shred of paper jamming the microswitch that sets the shredder into reverse to avoid an even worse jam. Find that microswitch, usual;ly on the left or right side, activated by a plastic flap on the basket side of the shredder. Clear it. As you move the plastic flap up and down you should hear it click. No click, the switch is jammed.
