Question about Staples M5 Mailmate Shredder
The bin that holds the shredded paper will not pull out. I haven't used the shredder for a few months, but it worked fine in the past.

Look down into the slot to see if the teeth are sharp. They should have little J-hook thingys that look like the teeth in your mouth. If it looks ok, give it some food to chew. If it burps it up, throw it away because its a junker and not worth your time.

I owe this to a Steve-EE.
Mine was the LED where the paper feeds. $1.69 for a 2 pack.

Yes you do need to oil the blades, but it is important to get the right oil. Most stores that sell shredders, like Staples Office Supply, also sell shredder oil. J.

These shredders have a "paper in" sensor. This is either optical or mechanical.
Sounds like the sensor is blocked and therefore "thinks" there is still more paper left, and this is why it keeps going.
Before you do anything UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
The sensor is located about in the middle and at the level of the blades.
If it's mechanical, you should see a little finger, else it is electronic.
Shine a light in the area and you should be able to spot where the blockage is.
A shot with compressed ais usually gets rid of the offending particles.
After you're finished working on it, set it back securely on the basket and plug it in.

SOURCE: gears not working. paper
There are 6 holes on the underside of the shredder, corresponding to 6 screws that have to be unscrewed. One of the 6 has a gray round QC seal over it which you must break in order to access that last screw (in the center of the unit). The idea is that if you have broken this seal, then you've voided your warranty.
