Remove the checkbook and see if the shredder works then.

I have a staples SPL826X shredder and it won`t shredd, but it will go in reverse. can someone help me?


If you can disconnect the power to unit and check shredding blade alignments to see if there is a clog or if the blades are out of alignment and stuck. If there doesn't seem to be a problem with the blades make a visual inspection of the off/on/reverse switch.

Put xrays transparency (once) The shredder is stuck, gears don't move


First - did you reverse it? If that didn't work, unplug the shreader , trun the cutter head over and use a pair of tweezers to pull out the stuck pieces. You may have to turn -forward & reverse - a fe times.

Some small bits of paper are stuck in blades


My advice is not to try to take it apart. Try putting a sheet folded in half where the paper is stuck (or an envelope) to see if you can clear it. Go FWD and REV repeatedly. If you can safely pick at the paper from the top or underneath, do so but shredder blades are sharp to BE CAREFUL.

Does t go in reverse?

Shredder Green light won't come on and won't shredd. won't go in reverse either.


I had the same problem with the same shredder. The unit uses mains voltage which is rectified to DC and eventually feeds two 12V zener diodes wired in series for a 24Vdc supply. These are 1N4742A (Radio Shack 276-0563), 1W parts. They overheat and will short, which you can verify with a VOM. I reassembled the unit, but recall they are away from the relays at the tail end of the large white colored power resistors, side by side in the same direction. I think Z1 and Z5. After replacing these parts, green LED and reverse, etc. will work.

My handyman took apart my Champion WQ120D paper shredder to remove the checkbook that was jammed. But it looked to him as if some transisters were burned. Once together again, minus a plastic shim at the...


It sounds like the shredder overloaded when you tried to shred the checkbook. If there is a smell of burned electronics this probably means that the shreader is dead. The plastic shims have nothing to do with the turning on and off of the shredder. Next time buy a shredder that is rated for at least 7-8 sheets, indicating a more powerful motor and sturdier blades. If the current shredder was repairable, it would be cost prohibitive over buying a replacement. Sorry for the bad news.

The cutting mechanism is failing. Result-parallel perferations


This happened to mine after attempting to shred checkbooks. The checkbook spine warped the cutter shaft far enough to allow the cutters to jump over to the opposite position. (Imagine scissors wit the blades back-to-back.)

I fixed mine. All I did was disassemble it and reassemble it. But be forewarned. I consider this an advanced level assembly. Many of the parts are small. Everything takes 3 hands. And the cutter shafts were difficult to get to go into the correct orientation (probably because of burrs on the serrated cutting edges).

Lay everything out on a large enough workbench. Keep track of which pieces go where. And be careful. Good luck!

Huge paper jam ( piece of a checkbook)


Throw it out and buy a new one! staples won't replace this unit and your gonna have to take it apart and clean the gears.
Also tell your employees to stop reversing the drive gears with paper inside the bucket it only reverses the flow and jams the unit.
I would buy a cross cut shredder next time.
Hope that helps.
