I continued to search via Google until I found the manual for this shredder, which I then printed out and read how to lubricate the shredder.

SOURCE: Fellowes Powershredder, making clunking noise and ceases to shred

2 probably causes
to check this 1st unplug the machine

now take the top off ,there are 2 screws underneath the front edge of the cover assessable when the door is open, and 2 on the back you will want to back the shreddr up to a table when you take off the top (the sensors and switches are all still connected so this takes the stress off of the wires)
now you will need to remove the blade guards there are screws at the left and right ends of the guards,
once these are removed you should have a pretty good view of the blades, look for any visible obstruction (part of a binder clip or paper clip or metal closure from an envelope for example)
if this wasn't the cause try this
on the side of the blades there is a fan wheel that is connected to the motor. When you turn the fan with your hand you can manually turn the blades, typically you will be able to turn it to a given point and then it will be increasingly hard to turn, you might also notice that the bar on the outer edge of the blades begins to bend at this point. These bars seem to break under fairly low stress and having one break will also produce the symptoms you described. replacing one of those is a costly repair, (cost is largely because it is very time consuming,)

Will not shred, but makes clicking noise, will run in reverse


Possible that the actuator which feeds paper in has gotten affected. With the unit UNPLUGGED try looking to see if some paper has gotten wedged in there. If you can disassemble it you might be able to see the problem. Good Luck.

I was shredding paper when it started making a loud grinding noise and wouldn't accept any more paper. I've tried running it back and forth, but it only goes, maybe half way, either way, and it still...


This is a very common problem. Go out to the hardware store and buy some silicone spray. With the shredder unplugged, spray a good amount of the silicone inside all of the teeth and try to get all sides.

Plug it back in and work it back and forth a few times. It should work better with less noise now.
