Shredder only hums will not grab paper


What sort of hum? Very quiet? Loud with vibration? Have you tried feeding anything else into the unit? Envelope? It's possible that you're not pushing the paper far enough in to let the shredder's teeth grab it.

No power. Seems to be overloaded


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.

I inserted paper covered with polythene and now the shredder wont start or turn. the polythene has tightly locked the shredder. it is a jielisi make.


There's only 1 true way to unblock the teeth, that's to put it in reverse to try to remove paper from the feeder channel. After that, unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and "dig" the paper out with a small knife, flathead screwdriver, or tweezers. The paper will come out a little at a time but eventually will come out in chunks. The only alternative would be to completely dismantle the shredder (not recommended).
