Shredder is jammed. Won't work.


If the shredder has power, the sheet detector may be blocked by a scrap of paper. Also, cross cut shredders that are an integral unit are best cleaned by turning them upside down to get access to the mechanism. Finally, if the motor became very hot an internal thermal fuse may have opened in which case the shredder will have to be replaced.

My shredder will not shredd paper


1. There is usually a small metal piece in the basket portion that has to hit the shredder when in place. If it gets bent, it won't line up and wont work. You can easily bend it to fit if that's the problem.
2. In general most people (like me) get all excited the first day of a new shredder. It will automatically STOP when it over heats. Don't worry, just wait until it cools itself long enough, turn it back on and it works again.
3. Aluminum in a shredder??? Never heard of that. sorry.

Why wont my staples titanium shredder continuously shred?


Not giving a model number, it's hard to say. But quite probably after use for 20 mins, the machine starts getting hot, and then it shuts down while the machine cools down.

I had the same issue with a shredder of mine. It prevents the machine burning itself out.

If you want one that just keeps going and going without heat issues, you have to pay more for a better shredder. Unfortunately.

Can a shredder wont goforward be repaired


Most jams are pretty much the same. First, try running the blades in REVERSE, that is done by using the on/off, selector switch.

If that does not solve the problem, Unplug the unit from the electrical, remove the top part from the basket. Pull out as much of the paper from the top and bottom that you can.

Replace the unit on the basket (make sure it is facing in the correct direction) and squirt, or lightly pour mineral oil (or machine oil, or something like WD-40) directly on the rollers and let it absorb into the remaining paper for a few minutes then try running the unit. If the motor does not come on, there is a fuse inside the machine that may need to be replaced.

Once you have solved the problem, you should oil the blades after every hour of use, it really makes it easier on the blades.

Also, there is an internal "heat switch" in the machine that will shut it down for about 90 minutes if the motor gets to hot. It is a safety factor in case you get something stuck, like a person wearing a tie, etc. After the machine has cooled down, turn the on/off switch to off and then back to on.

Wont turn on


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool


Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

I have an Omnitech OT-535BL paper shredder. It got a jam, I cleaned the paper out but it still wont work. It sounds like it is turning on when I plug it back in but it wont go.


This unit can also overheat and automatically shuts down when it does; to be thorough--simply unplug, empty the wastebasket, turn upside down, remove any remaining paper from blades, plug back in, and leave it alone for 30-60 minutes. Try again.

It's not an industrial shredder and has a low daily capacity, designed only for small office use.
