The only practical repair is to remove power, gain access to the shredding mechanism, and pick out the remains piece by piece. This can be a long, tedious process. You may have to apply power and jog your shredder a few times to get to all the pieces. Just remember to shut off the power after each jog

How do I unjam it?


Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

My paper shredder has stopped working. There is nothing jamming it - what should I do?


I had this same problem on one machine i repaired and when I took off ththe top cover it had a bad gear where it was split and it would run fine backwards, but not forward. the gear is available online. it was also
clogged with paper, which must have caused a lot of torque on the gear. they are plastic, so they will break instead of really messing something up. good luck

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

I have a corporate express shredder (CEBM6). Half way through a shredding job the overheat light came on and now the shredder wont go forward or back. I've shut it off to let it "cool" - how...


The unit requires a complete cleaning and oiling , there is paper shreds jammed at the sides.
POWER OFF AND REMOVE POWER PLUG FROM WALL BEFORE CLEANING.
Staples or Grand and Toy should have the shredder oil.

Our Aurora AS1712X paper shredder is jammed in a couple of places with paper so badly that we cannot free the jam and the tooth wheels cannot turn freely. Is there an easy way to clear the jam?


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Remove as much of the jam as possible then saturate any paper left with shredder oil or you may use any liquid vegetable based cooking oil from your kitchen. After letting paper soak for at least 7hours you should be able to power through the jam. If not call Fellowes customer service at 1-800-945-4545
