The shredder model # FQ81B won't turn on or shred the paper. I've unplugged it to clean it and it still won't turn on just recently purchased and only used twice. Please help I have important papers that I need to dispose of correctly.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.

You might have broken the actual mechanism enabling it to move forward. To be honest, your easiest solution would be to buy another shredder rather than attempt repair if this is the case, they're so cheap now.

My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

Constantly runs when on auto and won't accept paper


Shut off power and turn the shredder upside down. It is highly likely you will find shredded paper jammed in the mechanism, especially near the center where the feed sensor is located. A thorough cleaning should get your shredder operating again

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

I've lost the manual what is the maintenance on the VF 1700mx


Shredders need no "real" maintenance......if you can open the top cover once per year and clean out any debris that might build up inside...other than that just occassionaly put some shredder oil onto a sheet of the paper you are shredding to help in lubrication/cleaning of the cutting teeth of any builld-up of dust and debris that take place during the shredding process.

Shredder continues to run after page is shredded, must be manually switched off.


there is a sensor that detects paper in front of it to turn on the shredder mech. it is probably covered with paper dust so the machine constantly thinks there is paper being shredded. give it a clean with a qtip moistened with isopropyl alcohol - make sure the shredder is unplugged first.

Overly loud shredding; stops prematurely


I have taken many shredders apart and found them so clogged up with shreds of paper and too much oil will turn into paper mud.Be bold and take the top off and clean it out. Unplug the power source and when removing the top , be careful because their will be a short cable connecting the top to the circuit board. Easy to damage.
