SOURCE: Hello, I have a GBC Shredmaster 6120S

Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

SOURCE: How to fix a stuck shredder

get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the jammed paper out. (you may need to figure out how to pop off the top cover to get better access to the blades)

SOURCE: GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,

Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene

My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

Do you have info on paper shredders that just stop


shredders have a small tag next to the cutter wheels that move when you insert paper to shred. This tag is easily jammed or damaged during operation. It is normally about the middle and will be positioned between two blades. If this is not moving when paper is inserted it will not switch the machine on. It is the same switch that wwhen jammed by paper will not switch off the machine after paper has been shredded.

Jammed paper shredder motor stopped won't start


Had this sort of thing happen to me also; sort of. Did you check to see if the shredded paper level alarm has been triggered in the pull-out catch area? Sometimes it forms a pile that trips the alarm before the catch is full. Sounds simple, but check it out. Also check to make sure it's plugged in! I've done that several times, even to the point of calling for help! Did you know the technical help desk always asks if the machine is plugged in first!

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

The green power light is on but the motor does not run either when you insert a document or when you try to run it manually in either forward or reverse directions. It has stopped in the past due to...


Have you regularly oiled the machine.???
If you dont the shedded paper pieces and paper dust generated in the shredding process will start to clog-up the cutting teeth( oiling helps clean this out ! ) ...if you dont do this then the cutting machanism gets harder and harder for the motor to turn, the number of sheets that can be shredded goes down..the motor overheats and the thermal protection kicks in stopping you from using the machine until the motor cools down. In extreme cases if the machine is consistently run without being oiled and the machine is constantly being jammed you can blow the PCB inside the machine. When this happens obviosly the only remedy is to replace the PCB.

During the spin cycle it started making a whining


it must be motor run away condition. motor must have exceeded its design speed and the internal windings must have parted off. you did the right thing. but, when your son switched on again, it would have run for few minutes with all internal extra friction and stopped with burnt smell. you have lost the motor. but, before replacing the motor get the speed control system checked.

Shredder will not start when paper is inserted. switch is on auto. This happened after a long session of shredding


Two possible problems;
  1. Teeth underneath lid are jammed; sometimes (especially after a long session) although the papers go through, debris builds up and can get caught in the teeth; to clear unplug and with tweezers or a tina flathead screwdriver, pull out shreds of paper still caught
  2. Motor is overheated; once cool, try it again (move switch to reverse to see if motor is still working). If motor is working, see Step 1 for a jam; some jams can be cleared by running it in reverse. Royal doesn't recommend "long" shredding sessions. My unit recommends sessions of 20 pages or less. If you try to overwork the shredder, it will overheat and in some cases, fry the motor.
I hope this helps answer your problem. Best of luck!
