My brother took the shredder apart and found out that when you oil, the oil goes between the lens so it thinks something is there when not, he had to take it apart and clean the lens which would void warranty. its also possible that the oil on the lens collects dust and also blocks the infared eye

SOURCE: I HAVE A MODEL SPL-1506X PAPER SHREDDER, YOU HEAR

The optics are OK!
There is a small electromagnetic sensor on the cuttershaft which senses the input load.
I could be maladjusted or defective.

SOURCE: Ativa SPL 1506X not working

I had the same "click" noise when trying to shred. I had a Staples replacement guarantee (extended warranty) so I called them up and described the issue. They are sending me a gift card for the purchase amount. Seeing as they did not want the original unit back I decided to take it apart to see if I could find the problem. I did not find an issue with the gear as the other user stated but I did notice a burn mark on the circuit board just under the relay (which could make a click noise) I removed and inspected the relay (desoldered), but I could not see anything wrong with it so I re-soldered it back onto the board and re-soldered (re-flowed) all of the other connections just in case there was a cracked joint. Upon testing the shredder still has the same "click" sound. My guess is there is a faulty device on the circuit board such as a resistor or relay. To sum it up, to repair this particular issue you will be unable to implement a "simple" fix and it would realistically require either a new circuit board or a whole new shredder.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

SOURCE: staples spl-710sh paper shredder stopped shredding

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

SOURCE: staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool

Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

There is an optical sensor that needs to be cleaned. It is usually at the middle of the slot where you put paper to be shredded. Use canned air to blow out both holes (one on each side of the slot).
Hope this helps.

How do I fix a staples spl tmc 10 paper shredder that does not feed?


It may be clogged with shredded paper. With power removed, examine the shredding mechanism and remove any bits you find. You may not be able to remove all of the bits but enough to restore operation.

My shrdder won't shut off automatically


It has a paper jam blocking the sensor. Unplug and make sure there are no peices of paper in the shedder teeth. If you have compressed air,, like a dust destroer, use it after you make sure it's clean of paper shreddings.
