Omnitech shredder model ot--exc10a , shredder runs but when insert paper to shred it stops, pull out paper and it runs non stop!


Sounds like there's blockage between rollers and it also jams the sensor so auto function stops working. You will need to clear out as much jammed paper as you can using tweezers. Inspect the centre of the feed opening, there should be sensor which must be clear of blockages and moving freely. So clear any stuck paper with tweezers, in addition you can soak any jammed paper with WD-40 and unit should be good as new. Although if sensor arm is damaged then replacement of such sensor is unavoidable.

This is what worked for me.
1) unplug the shredder
2) put the selector in "auto" position. This pulls back the guard which blocks the paper and hids the sensor.
3) a little right of the center of the paper slot is the sensor. You can feel this by inserting a cotton swab in ths slot.
4) put some alcohol on the cotton swab and clean the sensor!!!!

Also the "bin full" sensors are under the shretter head. You can easily see those when you remove the head from the bin by flipping it over. I would advise cleaning those while you are at it. Mine were covered with dirt and dust.

Hope this helps!!

sounds as if you will need to have the auto feed sensor replaced. if they fail it will just run, thinking it sees paper. your machine is under warranty for three years from the date of purchase. call fellowes and see if they have repair depot in your area. 1-800-955-0959

The Auto-On switch does not work. I have to manually turn the shredder on and then feed paper into the slot. It feeds and shreds the paper just fine, but I have to manually turn it off to stop it. All of...


There must be an auto-on/off sensor in the middle of the paper entrance slot - either mechanical or optical.It needs to be cleaned from any obstructions like paper chads or paper dust.It this doesn't help,the sensor maybe defective and it needs to be replaced.

Blades all bent and paper still twisted on them.


Proper procedure for oiling a shredder is to wet a sheet of paper with the oil across the width of the sheet
and allow the oil to saturate the sheet before feeding the sheet though the CLEAN shredder for which there
are brushes that will accomplish the cleaning job, which should precede the lubrication job.

You need a wire brush, supplied by your original vendor, if Office Depot, as shown here, before giving up
on the shredder you have. As to supply of a new set of blades, replacement of the shredder is cheaper.

If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor located in the center of the paper feed area there may be paper behind it causing switch not to activate. If it is an electronic sensor you probally have a burned out sensor, switch or a bad pc board. You will need to contact manufacturer for info on part replacement.

Fellowes paper shredder


Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc1.gif board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.
