SOURCE: staples spl-710sh paper shredder stopped shredding

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

SOURCE: staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool

Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

is it the drive gear or is it that the shreader is dull that makes the shreader sluggish?

Hello,
1. Press the "Reverse" switch on your shredder with one hand while gently pulling the jammed paper back toward you. This should free any jammed paper from your shredder. If it does not, go to the next step.
2. Turn your shredder off and unplug it from the wall outlet. Allow your shredder to cool down for at least one hour before touching the shredder head and gears.
3. Remove the shredder head from the wastebasket and pull out any clumps of paper in the shredder.
4. Use a letter opener or a pair of tweezers to remove small pieces of paper that you see in the shredder, and then use a can of compressed air to force out stubborn paper particles stuck in the gears.
5. Place the shredder head back on the wastebasket or canister and plug it back in, and then coat a full sheet of paper and the gears with shredder oil. Allow the oil to stand 15 minutes and press the "Reverse" button to test your shredder; this should remove any final debris from your machine.
If this doesn't help, please let me know for further directions.
Regards.

Some home office shredders have the shredding mechanism "permanently" attached with only the bin (tray?) removable. The entire machine has to be inverted to gain access for cleaning. Periodic cleaning is necessary maintenance as shredders of this type are not self-cleaning.

You can try cleaning it and maybe limiting shredding to one sheet at a time.

Staples Shredder SPL-TXC22A always has the jam light lit and will not work even though there is nothing jammed. It works if I press and hold the down button twice. It also works continuously if I turn off...


Home office shredders get jammed because the mechanism is not self cleaning. If you remove power and expose the mechanism you may find that, indeed, a shard of paper is triggering the jam sensor. These shredders require periodic removal of the bits of paper from the mechanism, an exercise that can consume hours of picking with tweezers while thinking there must be a better way.

My Staples Shredder, model # SPL-S302D will stop shredding in the middle of a job or immediately after starting to shred. It is a strip-cut style shredder, I use lubricating sheets once in a while on it,...


You can clean the sensor with a alcohol and be sure there is no jam occur. If it doing fine then it's work and there's no more problem. Always clean it, a jam can cause motor to heat up and it's winding will be burnt.
I hope my advice help you.

Well, despite the manufacters warning label I choose to take the shredder apart and found that one of the plastic gears was broken. Hence the motor runs, but the blades do not turn. The thing I didn't understand, the there are metal gears and plasic gears...I can only imagine that the plastic gears at one point or another are going to give. I would suggest not to void the manufacters warrenty, take the shredder back, and get one that is built a little stronger. Hope that helps.
