First, make sure you turn your power to the shredder off. Take off the top of the shredder and turn it over. Is there paper stuck between the shredding wheels? I had to carefully pull this paper out with a set of tweezers. Be careful, as the shredding wheels are very very sharp!

Good luck,

Paul

Shredder stops - red light off


Some shredders are great for thicker paper. If you put a thicker piece of card through, it should activate the switch located in the middle of the shred blades. The paper might be too light to push it forward. Also, if you click the feed catch beyond it's operating position, this can also stop the shredder with no lights.

Paper jam, what to do


Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

I jammed it with too much paper


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

My paper shredder wont turn off


Shredders have sensors that tell it to turn on. Usually the there is a spring loaded button/sensor in the middle of the slot that you feed the paper in. Once the sensor button is pushed down, it thinks a piece of paper is being fed in and begins to turn the blades.

If your shredder won't stop running, I think the sensor button is stuck in the down position.

1) try pushing the reverse button for a while to see if it clears the problem.

2) if not, then unplug the shredder. Find the button/sensor near the middle of the shredder slot and with a tweezer, try removing any clogged scraps of paper near the sensor button to get it to pop up fully.

3) I've never seen a shredder with more than one sensor in the middle but if yours has more, make sure they are all in the popped up position when there is no paper in the shredder.

4) Plug the shredder back into the AC outlet and try it again. Good luck

My shredder won't continuously shred a piece of paper. I have to reverse it then turn it on again multiple times to shred just one piece of paper. Can I fix this?


If it is a x-cut shredder try oiling ( with a lightweight shredder oil ) onto a sheet of paper then shredding the sheet of paper to get the oil down into the cutting teeth....also try cleaning the "eyes" which are in the middle were you insert the paper..( they may be dirty.)

My paper shredder stopped working


First things First...UNPLUG THE UNIT. It sounds like it has been fed too many pages at one time. You may also want to dump any shredded paper so there is plenty of room for the shredder blades to pull in the paper. If the paper catcher is too full the blades can grab shreds from the bottom and stop the blades movement. Just be careful. Shredders can be dangerous.

Have to turn off manually


Either there is a piece of paper that is jammed where the paper in sensor is located, or there is paper fibers covering the paper in sensor, or the paper in sensor is defective.

The paper in sensor is usually located in the center of the shredder where you place your paper. Once you locate your sensor, you can try blowing it out with a can of air that is used to clean your keyboard out.
Since the opening for the paper or the Thoat width is 9", the switch should be close to 4.5" towards the center.
To try to help you located the sensor, take a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11 paper and fold it in 1/2 Long ways. This will place a crease in the middle of the paper. With the power off, or unplugged, place the paper in the shredder and look around where the middle of the paper (crease) lines up in the shredder. You might need a flashlight to help you located it. It will either look like a slot, or a little black lever.
Hopefully you will be able to blow the sensor out and clean it.
Good luck.
