Omnitech 14 sheet shredder is jammed and won't take paper less than year old tried to call omnitech support and get no answer just recording that they are closed any ideas


Unplug it, open it up and clear the jam, reassemble and give it a try, and try not to shred too many pages at once and make sure that you empty the lower part so it doesn't pick up already shredded material and jam up again.

You must first unplug it and look inside the shredding blades, especially around the spot usually near the center, where there is a pressure button. When paper hits it, it starts shredding. Chances are some pieces of paper have jammed just over it stopping paper from hitting it and switching it on. I have had to use long tweezers to work the jammed bits out... Once clear it will work again. Also using shredder oil every 50 sheets through will help it cut easier , and jam less frequently. Do not put too many sheets through together in a bunch. No staples...

Many shredders will jam up with pieces of the shredded bits sticking inside. If it gets near the trigger mechanism that is pushed inside so that it can be pushed, it STOPS! Unplug it, use tweezers and gently but consistently try to pull out all the remnants. If you get it all out, and it can take a while, it should start up again. In the future oil the machine with the special oil they make for shredders sold where you bought the shredder... and only shred a few pieces at a time. Go backwards only to UNJAM. If it is jamming you have to fat a load of paper going through.....GOOD LUCK!

Anti jam light is on unit will not run


The "anti-jam" light actually is a jam light and it is notifying you that the shredder is jammed. If you turn off the power and examine the shredding unit you will find shreds of paper stuck in the mechanism. Removing all of the shreds will get your shredder back in operation and the anti-jam/jam indicator will be off

Home paper shredders tend to accumulate bits of paper that have to be cleaned out from time to time. With power off, turn the shredding mechanism upside down and look for scraps or wadded up strips. Sometimes only tweezers and persistence will get rid of all.

Fellowes S8-95C is full, but can't get it open. Help!


I was able to pull really hard and open the bin 1-2". I turned the unit on its side over the trash can and some shreds came out. I alternated shoving a sturdy metal rod inside (first an aluminum architectural ruler then the longer handle of a squeeze clamp) to loosen up the shreds and tipping the machine on its side to get some loose shreds out. After doing this enough times I was able to dislodge the dense clumps and remove the drawer. Now that the machine is empty there is a red light on and it does not shred.....UPDATE: turns out somewhere along this rough process (paper was in rock solid clumps) a small piece of the door that presses the "door closed" switch broke off. Jammed a piece of cardboard in there and it shreds again, although it does not automatically turn off when the door is open.

PHASER 3100MFP SAYS PAPER JAM BUT NO PAPER IN MACHINE


Hi there, if you have experienced a paper jam prior to this error, then try to inspect the rollers as there might be tiny pieces of paper shreds that might be stuck there. Or blow a canner air or a blower inside the printer to get rid of any obstructions.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

When you put paper in it starts to shred for about 1/4 inch then goes to reverse. No jams that I can see. Can run forward and reverse without paper with no problem. Sensor problem?


No mention of make or model however this holds true for all shredders.... especially if its a "cross-cut" shredder; put some shredder oil onto the cutting shafts where you insert the paper this will help get rid of some of the build-up that occurs due to the shredding process...also give the "eyes" in the middle of the "throat" a clan with a soft cloth( unplug the machine first or it will start to run and take your cloth in.) Occasionaly shrd a sheet of paper with some shredder oil poured directly onto the paper..this will help lubricate the cutting blades. Lastly...only shred up to about 70% of the rated cpacity..this will result in fewer jams an longer machine life.

Shredder will not start when paper is inserted. switch is on auto. This happened after a long session of shredding


Two possible problems;
  1. Teeth underneath lid are jammed; sometimes (especially after a long session) although the papers go through, debris builds up and can get caught in the teeth; to clear unplug and with tweezers or a tina flathead screwdriver, pull out shreds of paper still caught
  2. Motor is overheated; once cool, try it again (move switch to reverse to see if motor is still working). If motor is working, see Step 1 for a jam; some jams can be cleared by running it in reverse. Royal doesn't recommend "long" shredding sessions. My unit recommends sessions of 20 pages or less. If you try to overwork the shredder, it will overheat and in some cases, fry the motor.
I hope this helps answer your problem. Best of luck!

My shredder stop shredding. has paper caught in itposted


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.
