Re: Jammed

You need to remove as much of the jam as possible then saturate whatever is left in the machine with a vegetable based liquid oil let soak for 8 hours or more this should soften paper enough to power thru jam.

Omnitech 14 sheet shredder is jammed and won't take paper less than year old tried to call omnitech support and get no answer just recording that they are closed any ideas

Unplug it, open it up and clear the jam, reassemble and give it a try, and try not to shred too many pages at once and make sure that you empty the lower part so it doesn't pick up already shredded material and jam up again.

My daughter put in about 5 folded credit card bills, jammed, tried to remove paper, but unable

Please be sure to include more information when asking questions. You also have to check what this question is listed under. You have it listed under JAM Paper Clear 8 15/16 x 11 1/4 Cello Sleeves Envelope with Self Adhesive Closure. But I will try to help you with some general help and assuming here. It sounds like you might be talking about a paper shredder since it's jammed with something you might wished shredded. Try taking it apart and pulling it out forward, pull whatever you can out then try another sheet of paper and see if it will clear itself.

Unplug it and look inside the shredding blades, especially around the spot usually near the center, where there is a pressure button. When paper hits it, it starts shredding. Chances are some pieces of paper have jammed just over it stopping paper from hitting it and switching it on. I have had to use long tweezers to work the jammed bits out... Once clear it will work again. Also using shredder oil every 50 sheets through will help it cut easier , and jam less frequently. Do not put too many sheets through together in a bunch. No staples...

Some small bits of paper are stuck in blades

My advice is not to try to take it apart. Try putting a sheet folded in half where the paper is stuck (or an envelope) to see if you can clear it. Go FWD and REV repeatedly. If you can safely pick at the paper from the top or underneath, do so but shredder blades are sharp to BE CAREFUL.

Does t go in reverse?

Omnitech shredder model ot--exc10a , shredder runs but when insert paper to shred it stops, pull out paper and it runs non stop!

Sounds like there's blockage between rollers and it also jams the sensor so auto function stops working. You will need to clear out as much jammed paper as you can using tweezers. Inspect the centre of the feed opening, there should be sensor which must be clear of blockages and moving freely. So clear any stuck paper with tweezers, in addition you can soak any jammed paper with WD-40 and unit should be good as new. Although if sensor arm is damaged then replacement of such sensor is unavoidable.

Ativa MC-1010S not cutting paper all the way through Even a single sheet of paper comes out looking like a ripple-cut potato chip. Not much security there. I have used two or three lubricating...

The shredding mechanism may be jammed with debris. With power removed, access the mechanism and use suitable tools to pick out every shred of paper. I have found tweezers and a utility knife to be useful. This is a time-consuming routine, but necessary to restore proper operation.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred

Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.
