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)

GBC #SC32 auto stop not functioning


take the shredding portion of the shredder off and check in its teeth (while unplugged of course) to check that there are no errant pieces of paper or plastic in the device. You may even want to try and blow out any possible paper stuck inside with some canned air or something.

How to fix a stuck shredder


Go to your local hardware store, and pick up a quart of 3 in 1 oil, shredder oil or some other light weight oil. (With the shredder in the off position or unplugged). Use a couple of ounces and Pour the oil over the paper that is jammed in the shredder. Use enough oil so it saturated the jammed paper. Wait about 10 - 15 minutes so the oil really soaks into the paper. Don't go crazy with the oil, and keep in mind what goes in, must come out. If you pour too much oil in the shredder, the exess oil will drip out. Don't worry about having oil in the shredder blade, this will help lubricated the teeth, and it will actually make your shredder blades last longer.

Now try to turn your shredder on after the oil has soaked into the paper for 10-15 minutes. Hopefully, the paper that is stuck has gotten softer, and then it should pass the paper. If it still doesnt work, then, try some more oil on the paper, and then wait and then turn the shredder to the forward, and then reverse mode, and then back and forth.

Hopefully your shredder will be unclogged by this time.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Automatic Shredding


I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

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.
