Did you ever find an answer to this?? Thought that the screws I took out was what kept the parts together. Thanks

OfficeMax (0M96431) Shredder\r\n ATTENTION LIGHT STAYS ON SOLID -... Answer Failed: retry attention light stays on solid - won't take paper in or go into reverse - have emptied bin, cleaned... (More)...

Have the unit serviced by a office machine technician. This sounds like there may be a problem in the gear drive, which you will not be able to access or repair.

I put a few credit cards in (at the same time) and it is now jammed. I have tried to reverese, gears wont move at all. Have also tried to use pliers to pull out jam and butterknife to try to force through....

Yes, you can disassemble it, but first I would try spraying the slot with WD-40 from the bottom and then pulling the fragments backwards out the top with a set of straight-nose serrated pliers. Keep in mind that a $50 shredder is pretty much considered a disposable item by the manufacturer and OfficeMax. Getting into it will be hard and you can't get parts should something break. They just aren't made to be serviced.

your auto insertion sensor (electric eye) is probably dirty or malfunctioning. clean or replace the "eye" or disable auto-reverse on jamb feature.

Officemax OM96580 has a stripped gear tooth on the nylon gear that meshed to the motor pinion gear

If you expect to repair this, expect to spend weeks waiting for parts if you can get them at all, at least an hour to do the work and expect to spend 2/3 the price of a new one for the parts.

My advice, my friend, save the collection can, discard the shredder. On your new shredder, dont over feed it.

OfficeMax OM99729 Shredder with bad gear

If it happened within a year, you should have just had the warranty replace it. We had it happen after nearly 11 months, it was replaced within two days.

Photosmart 3310 doesn't power up

It was difficult enough to find a repair facility, but when I did they told me repairs could easily top $200 so I just bought a new printer. I found a factory refurbished (looks new to me!) HP C7280 at OfficeMax for $149.95 with full factory warranty.
