Not sure of the model number but my paper shredder was purchased on Jan 16 of this year and quit working the middle of July except for the reverse mode. I need help.


no
we don't sell anything
there is something stuck in the blades
in the middle of the cutters there is a small plastic lever that is the micro switch for the forward action . paper is stuck and that lever is now not operating the microswitch to drive the cutter motor
either that or the lever has broken off, again not activating the micro switch
If you want repairs or warranty , contact the manufacturer direct by phone

Repair. reverse is OK but will not shred


There is a light sensor that is blocked by the paper that tells the machine to turn on when paper is loaded for shredding, it is most likely blocked with debris for a previous shredding.

How do you removed jam paper in the schredder


1) pull what you can of the jammed paper out. Make sure the shredder is unplugged whenever trying to work on or in the unit.
2) Then liberally soak the remaining jam with shredder oil and let it sit for 15-20minutes.
3) Try to pull out what you can again. Use tweezers or pliers if available.
4) Then first start the shredder in reverse and then alternate for a few seconds between forward and reverse.
5) If it is still jammed repeat all of the steps as necessary.

Shredder is jammed. Won't work.


If the shredder has power, the sheet detector may be blocked by a scrap of paper. Also, cross cut shredders that are an integral unit are best cleaned by turning them upside down to get access to the mechanism. Finally, if the motor became very hot an internal thermal fuse may have opened in which case the shredder will have to be replaced.

What is the website of the omnitech company ?


Isn't that the one that FatWallet.com was saying Staples was selling for $20 with free shipping?

Anyway, If you look on the UL label, there should be a phone number to call. (If yours doesn't have it, call 800-675-4481.)

Someone on Amazon had one where the green light came on, but nothing happened. The tech told him the sensor had to be reinitialized. Told him to turn it off, put in a thick paper (birthday card thickness) and turn it back on. He wrote that it worked and runs fine now. (But he still is not happy with it.)

Shredder keeps running on auto


Unplug it and check to see if theree is any paper caught in the Start switch. Turn it Off, plug it back in and start in the Reverse mode. Then turn it Off and set the swich for On - shread.

If that doesn't work unplug it and find the start switch trip wire, Toggle it a few times with something thin - don't push too hard. You can also spray the switch the canned air used to clean keyboards. Plug it back n, start it in reverse then move it to shread.

Omnitech shredder model ot--exc10a , shredder runs but when insert paper to shred it stops, pull out paper and it runs non stop!


Sounds like there's blockage between rollers and it also jams the sensor so auto function stops working. You will need to clear out as much jammed paper as you can using tweezers. Inspect the centre of the feed opening, there should be sensor which must be clear of blockages and moving freely. So clear any stuck paper with tweezers, in addition you can soak any jammed paper with WD-40 and unit should be good as new. Although if sensor arm is damaged then replacement of such sensor is unavoidable.

I just bought the Omnitech 10 Sheet Cross Cut Shredder. Is it safe to shred papers with staples in them?


I don't have that model but have an 8 page cheapo shredder. It takes CDs, credit cards and staples with no whining.

Omnitech only runs in reverse


In the middle of feed opening there is a sensor which in your case will be stuck. Try clear it using tweezers. Failing that soak the blockage up excessively with WD-40 as it will loosen and soften stuck paper leave it for 10-15 minutes, repeat 2-3 times. Then power on the unit and it should be good as new! Good luck

Sounds like the cutter is jammed. Do you ever feed staples or clips in it? Will it reverse? If not, the power borad is burned out.
