Try cleaning the "eys" in the middle of the throat where you insert the paper...they may be just dust/dirty.
If that dosnt work then they may be defective and would have to be replaced.

My staples QW 120D says ready, but will not run....


Is the basket under it full of paper? Most will not go on if it detects any blockage under the feeder. If that's not the issue its either a bad switch or a bad sensor.

My Black & Decker Shredder #BD-61 all of a sudden does not work. I used it tonight, but the next time I tried it does not work. The lights come on in both positions, but


On some shredders when both the forward and reverse LEDs are on it can indicate either a jam or a full receiver bag/ container (the area that the shredded paper is fed into).
Try the following steps:
  1. ) unplug the power
  2. ) open up the shredder (see 1 on diagram)
  3. ) empty out all the shredded paper (see 2 on diagram)
  4. ) check that the shredding jaws (both the entrance and exit) are clear of any shredded material (see 3 on diagram)
  5. ) put everything back together
  6. ) plug power cord back in
  7. ) force the shredder into reverse (see 4 on diagram)

Hopefully you should hear your shredder motor running. If it is switch it to automatic and try shredding again

I have a Staples SPL77M shredder. It stopped automatically feeding paper when placed in the feed slot and now requires the forward button be pressed and held down to shred paper. If the on/off switch is...


IF YOU LOOK INTO THE SLOT WHERE YOU FEED THE PAPER...GET A FLASHLIGHT ........IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SLOT YOU WILL SEE A TINY SWITCH. THAT THING SOMETIMES GETS GUMMED UP WITH GLUE FROM ENVELOPES AND SUCH... TRY SOME WD-40 ON THAT SWITCH... WITH THE MACHINE UNPLUGGED PUT PAPER IN THE SLOT TO MOVE THE SWITCH SO THE WD-40 CAN LOOSEN UP ANYTHING .... THEN TRY BLOWING AIR IN IT....
ARE YOU SURE THAT THE TOP OF THE SHREDDER IS SITTING FLUSH WITH THE PORTION IT RESTS ON??? THAT COULD ALSO MAKE IT NOT WORK..... OR IF THE BASKET NEEDS EMPTYING THE TOP WONT REST FLUSH ON THE BASKET.

Have a NOVITECH paper shredder- PS-026/B2. When slide switch is moved to ON it starts shredding and won't stop automatically until switch is returned to OFF


LOOK INTO WHERE THE PAPER IS FED... THERE IS A TINY SWITCH THAT THE PAPER TRIPS WHEN THE PAPER IS FED INTO THE SHREDDER. THIS SWITCH IS SHORTED OUT OR STUCK INTERNALLY FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON.

The shredder doesn't automatically shred anymore. How do I set it so the "eye" works and it shreds automatically without me holding down the button?


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Fellowes P35C works in reverse but not forwards


In forward operation, a detector senses the presence of material in the feeder and turns it on. Reverse operation is selected by switch position; no sensor is involved. I would bet that if you remove power and turn the shredder upside down you will find bits of shredded paper clogging your shredder, particularly in the center area where the detector is located. After thorough removal of debris, you should be back to normal operation

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Blue light comes on.it will run in reverse but not foreward


Try to reset the shredder.---- Toggle the On/Off switch at the back few times times.Then see if it gets reset.-------- Toggling it on and off to reset the shredder. Make sure to pull out the paper bin while you toggle the power switch on and off a dozen or so times and then put the basket paper bin back in place. When you power the unit back on the forward button should work again and the shredder should feed paper through properly.------ Another procedure is Using the power switch in the back, power on with the blue button and keep press forward till it worked. ------- Turning the off/on switch multiple times mostly helps. ------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SPL-QW120D SHREDDER. I put documents in the feeder, you hear the switch engage, but nothing happens. If I push the reverse button the blades will engage, but will not work on forward setting. I have taken...


Your feed sensor button has been either bent back too far or it has broken. Try bypassing the button and see if the rotors turn, if so remove the switch and get a replacement at Radio Shack.

PowerShred C-220 will not shred automatically


OK lets try.
You likely have a photo sensor that detects the paper and it is dirty.
It is likely covered with paper dust (hopefully only on the outside)
Locate the sensor and wipe it off or just wipe the entire throat area.
WITH MACHINE OFF
Hope this helps
