You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.

Make sure there is no paper blocking the sensors. Otherwise you may have a bad sensor or switch.

SOURCE: SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

SOURCE: The shredder overheats. The most we can shred are

Have you put any shredder oil or a shredder oil sheet through the machine.

Shredders need oiling to keep the cutters free

Free cutters mean clean cuts and less friction

Takes the paper and then it backs up


This happens when the shredder detects an overload or potential jam condition. try making sure the cutters are lubricated with the correct machine oil and it will take paper in correctly. Experiment with feeding in different numbers of sheets to see what it is capable of. Avoid paperclips and stapes as they can damage the cutters and force the cutting blades to become misaligned which in turn puts additional stress on the motor and will mean that you will be able to successfully shred less paper than if the blades were OK and in good condition.

Sensors not working correctly ... jamming


Try blowing some canned air down into the feed slot to clean the sensors.

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.

Olympia Shredder Jammed and not working


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.

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.

Olympia shredder 1280.6


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.
