Does sewing machine oil work as well as shredder oil?


do not use oil in a shredder
the paper becomes contaminated and will not cut
besides that all the oil will be moved by the first sheet of paper shredded
if the paper is not being cut properly get new blades or a new shredder

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.

My shredder squeaks when in use, does it need regular lubrication? If so, what do I use?


Visit the link below for various types of shredder oils.
http://www.factory-express.com/Shredder_Oil__Bags-2025.htm
Regular use of paper shredders creates paper dust that can dry out components, dull the blades, clog the machine and burn out the motor. However, with proper oiling and maintenance, a paper shredder can last for years.
Oiling a shredder can be accomplished using one of two quick methods. The paper method limits excess oil to the paper, reducing the chance of it splattering when you turn the machine back on. This method is more common than the second and can be used with all kinds of shredders. The paperless method may be less common, but it is just as effective at removing dust buildup from the blades of the shredder.
The Paper Method:1. Place a sheet of paper on or above a surface that will not be marred or damaged should you spill oil on it.2. Apply the oil to one side of the paper in a wide zigzag pattern across the whole face of the page to ensure sufficient coverage. Do not saturate the paper with oil.
3. Turn the shredder on and run the oiled piece of paper through the shredder. As the paper shreds, the oil that has been absorbed by the paper will lubricate the blades. The motion of the blades will distribute oil so the shredder continues to operate smoothly.
3. Feed a few more papers into the shredder to absorb residual oil from the cutting assembly. The Paperless Method:1. Set the shredder to manual mode so you can control the direction of the blades and the amount of time the blades are in motion.2. With the paper shredder turned off, squirt a solid line of oil into the paper entry lengthwise across the paper-shredder blades.
3. Start
the paper shredder in reverse, allowing it to run for 10 to 20 seconds before stopping the blades. This will evenly distribute the oil to all parts of the cutting assembly.
4. Return
the shredder to automatic mode. Then feed two or three sheets of paper into it to absorb the excess oil from the machine. Tip:
How often you should oil your paper shredder depends mostly on how much you use it. Office shredders that see heavy use every day will need to be oiled several times a week, while home machines used occasionally need be oiled only a few times a year. Cross-cut shredders will require more frequent oiling than other paper shredder varieties because they have more blades and create much more paper dust.
You can purchase a shredder lubricating oil from any major electronic or office supplies store or you can contact Royal customer service at 908-429-4357.

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.

Each time I use my staples SPL-616X shredder all the paper gets stuck around the blades what can I do? Do I need to put some oil on the blades?


Yes you do need to oil the blades, but it is important to get the right oil. Most stores that sell shredders, like Staples Office Supply, also sell shredder oil. J.

Where do i put the oil in a fellowes ps80c-2 paper shredder


You put it on the blades. Turn the shredder on to manual and oil the blades, do not oil as you are shredding. You will hear the motor start to speed up as you do this.

Blades all bent and paper still twisted on them.


Proper procedure for oiling a shredder is to wet a sheet of paper with the oil across the width of the sheet
and allow the oil to saturate the sheet before feeding the sheet though the CLEAN shredder for which there
are brushes that will accomplish the cleaning job, which should precede the lubrication job.

You need a wire brush, supplied by your original vendor, if Office Depot, as shown here, before giving up
on the shredder you have. As to supply of a new set of blades, replacement of the shredder is cheaper.

CCS5000 Shredder


Have you had a maintenance work done to this machine lately.
You gears may be dry. This could damage your blade.It could also be the gear. Have tech look at it. or if you closed to the jersey area I can recommend a tech. I can not walk you through this because it is a big machine and better to be operated by train tech.

Good luck
let me know

All shredders need special shredder oil applied to the gears at least once a month. Oil is a very sticky silicone. Office supply stores sell it...
