Question about Olympia 1500.1C HS Shredder

Open Question

Pulsing clicking sound when paper is inserted

The shredder specifically being used:

Olympia
TYPE: 679-1CF
S/N: 84879. 044254
Model: 1500.1C - KTR2712 - BM35.977-0019

Issue:

Our office has been using this shredder for a few years and never had any major problems until now. Every time we insert a paper into the machine a loud clicking sound comes from the inside. There are no visual obstructions on top or underneath. It still shreds but it sounds like something is loose internally.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

On this model, make sure the hopper is all the way in. If it is, remove paper hopper and check to make sure the hopper is not broken. There is an electromagnetic switch in the front and the hopper has a magnet built in to it. run a stick magnet across the right underside and front to see if it extinguishes the light. If not, then the board is bad.

likely a spacer has broken, if you can see the underside of the cutting heads you will see a spacer or two hanging out, If this is the case the heads will have to be bebuilt or replaced.

SOURCE: shredder won't shred

They may be a compression switch on the lip where it sets on the bucket. This it to prevent it from running while its off its buckette. If this is not all the way in it wont run. Look for that clean any safty switch or buttons you find.
Slap it with your tax booklet and call me in the morning. Good luck DFD

How do you oil this shredder?


You did not give the model ## of your shredder. Most all shredders are OILED from the top slot where you you insert the paper to be shredded. DO NOT USE WD-40 OR ANY OTHER BRAND TYPE OIL. Use oil made for shredders or you can use SILCONE type oil. Wd Corp & Liquid Wrench companies make this type of oil. I have used it for more than 10 years in my shredder and I have not had a problem. The cutters work great.
Make sure BEFORE you oil that you make sure all shredded paper is removed from the cutters.

Spray from one side to the other(paper feeding slot) Run the shredder forward and backwards (WITHOUT PAPER) for about 5 seconds. This should be sufficient.

Only goes in reverse


Lube might not be necessary. Unplug the shredder from the outlet. Lift it off the shredded paper bin and turn it over. It is very possible that you have a jam. If this is the case, remove as much paper as you can making sure that you don't use anything that could do damage to the cutter'shredder blades. Once you have removed as much paper as possible, place the shredder back on the bin making sure that it is aligned properly. One way of making sure is to check for any space between the shredder and bin. If you do have space make sure that you replaced the shredder correctly on the bin; you may have to turn it around 180 degrees. When you get the shredder properly aligned, use the switch (DO NOT USE PAPER AT THIS TIME) to switch the shredder from Forward (shredding) to Reverse. You may have to do this a couple of times so be patient. At this point the shredder should be working in both directions. If so, move the switch to Auto or the center position and try a SINGLE sheet of paper. If it shreds that piece of paper, then you have fixed it. Be sure not to insert more paper than the shredder is rated for. Also, unless it specifically states that it can handle staples, credit cards, etc. do NOT let any of these items run through your shredder.
If none of the above works, buy a new one - :)

Hello,

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

The shredder jammed (too much paper) then stopped and won't shred. It makes a noise, but when I insert paper, it won't shred. Is there a reset button? I picked paper out of the blades with a pair of...


Chances are, the overfeed caused the teeth of the gear that operates off of the motor to break.
This is very common in less expensive machines. I don't know if OM will let you return it because I don't know there policy. Most of the time retailers will attribute broken gears to abuse, which in turn is not warranted. These machines are mainly mass produced in China and obviously are very cheap. The labor and part (s) to repair are more expensive than replacing the machine.
If you do, look for a higher quality German machine i.e. Intimus, Olympia, HSM or Dahle. They cost more but they have a nationwide service arena and parts are always available.

Shredder Errors before Paper Touches Blades


When the paper shreds it pulls both the blades inward. Reverse spins them outward.

There must be something too large between the blades because it can be pushed up just not pulled down.

Has a staple or paperclip been inserted into the machine?

Try one of these two things:

When you're vacuuming the machine, hold the reverse button in and see if that helps.

Unplug it, take out all loose pieces like the bag liner, tape the door closed, get another individual to help you flip it upsidedown and GENTLY tap the machine to break free any obstructions.

Hopefully one of these solutions will work for you.
