This type of shredder can get clogged so badly, the material has to be removed with a utility knife. This is especially true if someone has tried to shred coated stock or, worse yet, credit cards. The noise you are hearing is the mechanism bouncing over clumps of residue jammed in-between the grinding "teeth".

SOURCE: Turns on when paper in slot, but won't pull it through to shred.

must disassemble feeder unit. you will find many bits of shredded paper to pull (push) out with a long narrow tool like a crochet needle.

More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.

SOURCE: My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode

UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.

If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.

If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.

SOURCE: Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.

Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.

Why is my printer making really loud grinding noise and will not feed paper or print


It sounds like a bit of paper is stuck somewhere in the paper feed route. Remove the toner cartridge and any other bits that pull out. Removable bits often have a green tag or finger grips moulded in to them. Do a careful check in the printer for any bits of paper or even a full sheet stuck somewhere. Carefully remove all rubbish and reassemble.

The paper is stuck


Run the shredder in reverse for a few seconds then unplug the unti to pull the paper out from the top. Flip the head over on a table or desk and use a needlenose pliers to pull the paper away from the teeth. Once you can see that there is no paper shreds left, put the head back on the bin and plug it back in. Caution, KEEP ALL LOOSE CLOTHING AND FINGERS AWAY FROM THE OPENING!

Hi, my Nikon Coolpik S8100 camera lens seems to be stuck and not extending. When I turn the camera on, it makes a clicking sound and the lens does not come out. Please help!


try manually pulling on lens housing while powering on. if there is a grinding noise the gears are probably missing teeth.

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred


Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

I was shredding paper when it started making a loud grinding noise and wouldn't accept any more paper. I've tried running it back and forth, but it only goes, maybe half way, either way, and it still...


This is a very common problem. Go out to the hardware store and buy some silicone spray. With the shredder unplugged, spray a good amount of the silicone inside all of the teeth and try to get all sides.

Plug it back in and work it back and forth a few times. It should work better with less noise now.

REALLY loud grinding noise


If it doesn't work at all, there is a reset button for the unit. After it is reset keep the cutters lubed.

Shredding no more


if the unit is pulling paper thru but not shredding your cutters have separated for some reason. If not pulling paper thru but machine is running you probally have a broken gear causing cutters to no longer turn you may hear a clunking or grinding noise or gear may be stripped if shredder sounds like it is spinning freely. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.
