    I was using it to clear files before my move. When it has gotten hot it will shut-down and that is OKAY,happened many times and I am not surprised. After cooling period it will power up and run in reverse; however when trying to go forward, the motor doesn't power up and no wheels are moving. Nothing going forward, A-ok going in reverse.

It could be you have a broken or stripped gear. If you can disassemble the rig and look at the drive mechanim, this should tell you what is happening. Availability of parts would be questionable. check the motor- is it turning, or are the bearings dried out and sticking? Check the mechanim for freedom of movement.

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.

If it is an automatic transmission, first check the fluid level. If it is low, fill it up and try it again. If the level is fine, then there is a bigger issue and you should seek a professional's help.

Shreds in reverse only


I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model


Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Runs continuously when in the on position.


there is paper jammed in front of the sensor. it was likely caused by feeding too much paper into the shedder at one time and now a chunk of shedded paper bits it blocking the sensor from seeing that the shedder is clear

The paper is stuck in the shedder and now it will not turn on/off


Try reverse, forward, reverse a few times. If thet doesn't work, unplug it, turn the shredding unit off and pick out whatever paper you can see, both top and bottom. Watch your fingers, the cutters are sharp.

Blades rotate twice but stop-motor continues to run, both forward & reverse mode its the same. Have tried to oil, unblock, run forward & back but to no avail. Can anyone help


Is the motor just humming after the 2 rotations? If you are over oiling the unit, tha shreds will soak up the oil and start sticking to the blades and begin growing a paper tumot in side the cutter shroud, whish in turn will start to slow down and jam the cutter asm and motor. Best to take apart and thoroughly clean.
