My office max OM01287 Shredder has no power to it is there a rest button it worked just fine the last time I used it and now there's no power?

Double check the safety that stops the shredder when it is full sometimes that switch gets jammed with cut paper. Also make sure the top of the shredder is level and properly seated back on the base unit. The shredder feed area may also need to be cleared there may be a staple or just paper jammed into this area as well, make sure the unit is unplugged before trying to inspect and clear and part of the shredder

My office Max OM01287 Shredder will only run in reverse. There appeared to be a jam in the cutters and with tiny tools and very careful grabbing I seem to have cleared the jam from tiny pieces of paper. ...

There is still a shred of paper jamming the microswitch that sets the shredder into reverse to avoid an even worse jam. Find that microswitch, usual;ly on the left or right side, activated by a plastic flap on the basket side of the shredder. Clear it. As you move the plastic flap up and down you should hear it click. No click, the switch is jammed.

My fellowes paper shredder is not operating. we have lifted the shredder head and fitted it back on the basket but nothing happened

Step 1 Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.
Step 2 Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.
Step 3 Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.
Step 4 Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.
Step 5 Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.
Good Luck!

New shredder broke allready, it jamed up, i cleared it, the on light does not go on, nothing works.

The shredder only jams when too much paper is inserted.......
if it won't go, then as this is probably a consumer machine then the pcb inside may have the manufacturer.
