How to Oil a Paper Shredder shredder_oil.jpg Paper Shredder OilProper shredder maintenance is required by all paper shredder manufacturers to maintain warranty coverage. Perhaps the most effective way to care for your shredder is to oil the cutting heads regularly. Why should I Oil my Paper Shredder?

The frequency of shredder oil applications is determined by a number of factors. First of all cross cut shredders must be oiled more often than strip cut shredders do. A cross cut paper shredder will require regular applications of shredder oil while a strip cut can go for a longer period of time without decreased performance. Secondly, paper shredders that are used more will need more lubrication. A paper shredder under heavy usage will need oil about once every four hours, while one under normal use will only require oil once or twice a month. Most manufacturers recommend oiling the cutters once every 30 minutes of accumulative shredding, but an easy way to remember is just to oil your paper shredder every time you change the bag. The type of material as well as amounts fed at once can also effect performance and lead to the need for oil.

Directions
You should only use specifically designed shredder oil to oil your paper shredder. This oil is designed to lubricate precision heat treated shredder cylinders, and any other lubricant or oil will void the manufacturers warranty. So don't use WD-40 or the like to oil your paper shredder.

Shredder oil can come in both liquid and aerosol varieties. However, the most common is liquid shredder oil.

The first way to oil your shredder is to spray or squirt lubricant into the opening and onto the cutting heads. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly onto the cutting head in a fine stream. This is done through the paper entry throat. Take 1-2 seconds to oil from one side of the opening to the other. Turn the machine in reverse for about 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to all parts of the cutting head. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil.

The other, and perhaps most common, way to oil your paper shredder is illustrated in the image above. Simply spread a small amount of shredder oil onto a piece of paper in a zig-zag type motion. Make sure that you spread the oil over the entire sheet. (NOTE: you don't need to soak the paper in oil, just ensure total and even coverage.) Feed this sheet through the shredder and then operate the machine in the reverse mode for a few seconds. This will make sure the oil is dispersed throughout the shredders cutting cylinders. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil. You may want to repeat this procedure depending on the results, and is recommended for up to three applications to be assured of thorough oiling.

You should oil your cross cut shredder on a regular basis. If you are shredding a small quantity such as only 50 sheets a week or if you are using a small shredder, then you should oil your shredder every other day. If you are shredding a large quantity such as hundreds of sheets, then oil after 30 minutes of usage or after you empty the bag.

Start oiling your paper shredder now. The shredder will run smoother, faster, and put less strain on the overall motor, gears, and bearings.

I have a Royal 10X Shredder. It should shred up to 10 sheets but if I put more than 1, it gets jammed. Is it an oil problem and if so, where do you put the oil?


Try putting shredder oil on the 1 sheet that will go thro'....do this a number of times until you get things free'd up and it starts to take more sheets. Put the oil on the sheet in an "S" pattern.

I would like to know how to oil an Wilson-Jones 1250 schredder.


Wow, a name from the past.... with any shredder the easiest way to "oil it" is just to put a bead of oil in an "S" pattern down a sheet of paper to be shredded and then shred the sheet of paper.
If you shred a lot you should do this more frequently...if its only occassional shredding OR if its a strip cut shredder then you don't have to do this as often.

Have you ever "oiled" the machine.??? Put some shredder oil onto the cutting shafts to give some lubrication,...all x-cut shredders need regular oiling.

When we put paper in our shredder, even just 1 sheet, it sounds real sluggish like it's losing power, then it almost shuts off and the trouble light comes. It's plugged in. Is there a fuse or something...


Have you ever oiled the machine.?????
Cross cut shredders need to be lubricated due to the amounts of small paper and dust generated.
Get some "shredder oil" run the machine in reverse and pour some of the oil onto the cutting blades...then when you shred paper put some oil onto a sheet of paper prior to putting it in the shredder. How often do you oil it??? depends how much shredding you do.

I just need to know how to oil the Ativa AT1250 shredder. We no longer have the manual. Is there a specic "well" to place the oil into or is it just spread across the blades.


Just use regular "shredder oil", if you hav'nt put any oil on in some time pour it directly onto the blades....once in a while put the oil onto a sheet of paper you are going to shred and shred the paper with the oil on it.

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?


Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Where do i put the oil in a fellowes ps80c-2 paper shredder


You put it on the blades. Turn the shredder on to manual and oil the blades, do not oil as you are shredding. You will hear the motor start to speed up as you do this.
