Not shredding - Motor running

My shredder won't shred. It is fairly new and I only shred between 1-8 pages at a time max 12. Why won't it grab the paper?

I dont have the original bin for an Infoguard SX100M. It runs if I hold it and push in the red button with a screwdriver. When I try to load the paper, the shredder doesnt grab it. Any fixes?


I can't imagine holding the red bin interlock button depressed with a screwdriver every time I wanted to shred something but hey, whatever works!

Your shredder does not grab the paper because an internal "page in" sensor is damaged, defective, or blocked by shredded residue.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

Running sluggish and will only shred about 5 pages at a tiem model #OM 96146 Office max


Favorite with shredders... put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the page ... you may have to do this a few times if you have never oiled inside the cutting blades.

My jaws shredder appears to get overheated every now and then and just stops running, is this normal? also, when I shred alot of paper sometime it will gets jammed and I have to go back and forth on the...


Remember this is a "consumer" shredder NOT a commercial shredder..... if you shred for 5 minutes you should give the machine 10 minutes for the motor to "cool-down"...it will not hurt if you also shred some paper with shredder oil poured onto the paper so that the oil lubricates the cutting blades...lastly; if the shredder is rated to a Max. of 10 sheets(as an example.)..you will have fewer problems if you only shred about 70 % of that number. ***Think of your car...it will go 100m.p.h.....but how long will it last if you drive it at its maximum speed all the time.????

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

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.

Shredder overheats quickly and can only do 2 pages...


sadly I wish I could.
You are in need of a new drive motor in the device.
That is the item kicking out the overheat.
Sorry it is either replace the motor, or the shredder.
