The shredder got jammed , a paper got stuck didn't go all the in. We tried to scrap out as much paper as we can . But it does not work at all

There should be a button to operate the shredder in the reverse direction to help unclog the blade. If the blades are bound up enough to stop the motor from turning, it will be necessary to take it apart to remove the obstruction.

Unclog a jammed paper shredder model MX80B ?

If reversing the shredder doesn't work, Unplug the power connection and look at the under side of the cutters and pull out all the paper.
Hope this helps.

Paper got clogged in shredder and now it won't run

Hopefully there is a reverse switch, see if that will unclog.
Possible the overload tripped a circuit breaker on the machine. If so reset and try the reverse switch.

Plastic got in shredder won't work,would like instruchions to take it apart to fix

Take out the paper bin. Look for and remove any screws holding the top part of the shredder to the base. Take the top off, turn it upside-down and you might be able to remove the jam. To take the top apart, remove all of the screws that are under or near the edge. Look out, it gets very messy when you take it apart!
Fellowes sells replacement gears for some of their shredders.

How do I unclog my shredder? The papers keep getting stuck in the teeth and the shredder keeps stopping. I've tried pulling it out with my hands but it's not working. Bummer!

Have you ever "oiled" the cutting blades...all cross-cut shredders should be oiled regularly otherwise they clog up with the paper and debris generated by the cutting of the paper...the oil helps feed this material on thro into the shredding bin.

Need NoviTech shredder customer service number or assistance

These are easy to take apart. Should be 4 screws maybe six. One might be behind a label. Just pull it apart and unclog the gears or cutters. Be careful not to cut yourself. Take pictures after shell is apart. That way you can unclog and put back together.

Paper Shredder will not shut off when in auto mode

if you answer no to the following question, then I do know your solution: Q: When you unplug the unit immediately after your action of "When those paper complete the shredder does not turn off."...and then plug it back in, does the shredder STILL continue to operate? if no, then the solution is to disassemble the feeder unit and manually unclog the paper sensor.
