Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

My Staples 16 sheet Microcut shredder starts the shredding operation after I push the button and continues the shredding operation after I shred a paper. How can I get the shredding mechanism to stop...


It's a tedious process to clean it out. Most auto switch shredders use either a tiny little lever or an optical sensor in the paper feed slot. Usually removing the shred head, picking all the paper out and blasting all the dust out with air will clean it up. Then run a few sheets of paper with shredder lubricant (basically clean mineral oil) to oil the blades and it should be good to go again. Just be careful cleaning that cutting head. I've donated many drops of blood to office equipment over the years.

Do you ever need to lube a memorex paper shredder


ALL shredders need to be lubricated. When metal turns, it creates friction that, over time, can cause the blades to warp. Just like you have to add oil to a car, shredders must be oiled as well. You can buy bottles of oil at your local office supply store. Just squirt across the top of the blades. Or pour some on a plate, dip a piece of paper in it, then shred. If you want less mess, purchase the pre-lubricated sheets that you can just drop in and shred. Make sure to shred in reverse about half way through to get the best results.

Lubricate with what product


It's amazing how easy it is to lubricate a shredder, at least the blades portion of the shredder. Go to your local Staples store, or else order on line. They sell lubrication sheets for all shredders. I bought a dozen for less than $10 and they work great. You just insert the sheet and shred it. The unit is lubricated. The Staples part number I got was their part number 602400. Good luck..

THE BLADES ARE FULL OF PAPER. SHOULD I TAKE IT APART AND ATTEMPT TO CLEAN IT?


In order to maintain a functional paper shredder, you should clean it out and oil it at least once a month(depending on usage) if not every time you fill it.
I would advise against trying to disassemble the actual blades to clean them out if that's what you mean by "take it apart."
What you can do is unplug the machine, lay the blades up and get a pair of tweezers and remove any large pieces of paper/shredding that might be caught in there.
After doing that you should oil the blades with any lubricant that your owner's manual recommends.
Most shredders suggest a non-aerosol/biodegradable oil such as vegetable oil.
Do not use WD-40 or other canned spray lubricants.
I've found that dripping the oil straight into the blades can be very messy so a good alternative is to lay out a piece or two of scrap paper and soak it in the oil. Then run the paper through the blades as normal.
They also sell varieties of this here: http://www.staples.com/Staples-Shredder-Lubricant-Sheets-12-pk-Shredder-Sheets/product_602400


It doesn't have to be a headache to maintain but proper care can make your shredder last a long time.

Paper always packs up in the blades and it will not cut more than 1 sheet at a time. Sometimes not even that. Any solutions for this? I constantly have to dig the paper out of the blades, even after...


All x-cut shredders should be oiled. Buy some shredder oil ( this is a lightweight oil ) from your local store then pour some of the oil across the cutting blades where you insert the paper. After putting the oil in run the machine in reverse...this will help get the oil all thro the cutting mechanism. Then start shredding 1, then 2, then 3 etc, etc sheets at a time...when you hear the motor starting to "labour" to take the sheets thro'..then you have just about reached the point where "thats its maximum". You should occassionaly shred a sheet of paper with a bead of oil on it ( in an "S" pattern) to help keep the mechanism lubricated. Running the machine at about no more than 75% of its maximum capacity and regular oiling will prolong the machines life.

Odd metal to metal sound


You can't really clean the blades...however , a x-cut shredder should be lubricated regularly....try putting some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shredding it...do this a number of times to get the oil down into the cutting blades, see if that helps.
