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.

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.

My shredder will not work. It makes sounds both forward and reverse, but the blades don't; turn. There's no jam signal. Help!!


Most likely one of the gears popped off or cracked. The blades are gear driven by a motor and it's pretty straight forward. If the blades aren't moving, then it's probably a gear problem since you said the motor runs.
Not much you can do without taking it apart.
Good luck. =)

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.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.
