Why does my shredder run when there is no paper, but stops as soon as I insert paper into the slot?!


You may have paper stuck in the blades and its jamming.try forward and reverse to free it up or you may have the head unit on the can faced the wrong way. Pull it out and turn head around and than try. I know on some shredders if the head unit does not fit on the right way it wount push down the safety switch and it wount run.

What is the website of the omnitech company ?


Isn't that the one that FatWallet.com was saying Staples was selling for $20 with free shipping?
Omnitech 10 Sheet Cross Cut Shredder 19 99

Anyway, If you look on the UL label, there should be a phone number to call. (If yours doesn't have it, call 800-675-4481.)

Someone on Amazon had one where the green light came on, but nothing happened. The tech told him the sensor had to be reinitialized. Told him to turn it off, put in a thick paper (birthday card thickness) and turn it back on. He wrote that it worked and runs fine now. (But he still is not happy with it.)

My shredder runs non stop, when I insert paper to shred , it stops... I push reverse, it works , pull paper out and runs non stop.......


Sounds like a bad or stuck sensor, acting as if it is always seeing a peice of paper in it. Check if you can find it and maybe it is just stuck to the on position..

Omnitech shredder model ot--exc10a , shredder runs but when insert paper to shred it stops, pull out paper and it runs non stop!


Sounds like there's blockage between rollers and it also jams the sensor so auto function stops working. You will need to clear out as much jammed paper as you can using tweezers. Inspect the centre of the feed opening, there should be sensor which must be clear of blockages and moving freely. So clear any stuck paper with tweezers, in addition you can soak any jammed paper with WD-40 and unit should be good as new. Although if sensor arm is damaged then replacement of such sensor is unavoidable.

Omnitech only runs in reverse


In the middle of feed opening there is a sensor which in your case will be stuck. Try clear it using tweezers. Failing that soak the blockage up excessively with WD-40 as it will loosen and soften stuck paper leave it for 10-15 minutes, repeat 2-3 times. Then power on the unit and it should be good as new! Good luck

Omnitech 10 sheet shredder keeps running constantly after a page or pages have been completely shredded. I have to stop it and start it manually.


Shredders have to be cleaned periodically to remove bits of paper that may be blocking the sensor that detects when paper has been inserted. If you turn the shredder mechanism upside down, you can see the bits of paper and, with power off, you can pick them out. I find tweezers are a useful tool for this

I have an Omnitech 2gb mp3 player. I have used it previously, as previously as a couple hours ago. I uploaded new music and removed it from the computer, but now it won't work. When I turn it on, it is...


Did you checked that a the HOLD function is not enabled ?
It is a button on the player, allowing you to "block" the player in case of unintentional buttons pressings.
