Can i replace the large blades in this shredder?

I got the cutter used from an office. People had put papers with glue in it too often and it is so jammed up that it will only go through at both ends. I've tried to used pliers and such to clean it out, but it's been an accumulation of years of this.

How do I fix my blades on my shredder?


Try running a layer of aluminum foil between two sheets of paper. See if it shredds, If it does, do it a couple of times, then use shredder oil. It might help to both sharpen the blades, and to keep them sharp longer. It works on cutting blades for scrapbooking cutters and scissors...

Its not working and shredder wont turn on


It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while. Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

I have a Royal MC14MX paper shredder that has worked extremely well for almost 2 years. Until now. I normally leave it turned on 24/7, even when the office is closed. The other day I turned it off and

Shredder blades not turning


A staple or paper clip has jammed the cutter blades.
If there is a reverse switch then reverse to free the cutter blades and remove these objects.

I have a Ativa DQ60M Paper Shredder and it is very clogged with paper and it looks like some of the blades are slightly bent. Can it be sent in for repair or warranty?


Take away info: 3-year warranty on cutter.

Office Depot item #405935: Ativa DQ83M Diamond-Cut Shredder (mine show model ...Mn. It has a 1-year warranty for product, BUT ALSO a 3-year warranty for the "cutting cylinders". Call 1-877-777-HELP; www.ativaproducts.com .
I called 12-29-2010. Rep had difficulty finding product, put me on hold, found it. Said prod only has 1-yr w (per Office Depot online, this is all that is given as to info); but I said, no, 3-yr on cutter. I held again, rep researched and agreed. I took a case number and tried rep's troubleshooting suggestion: I put 3-in-1 oil (veg oil suggested by rep too) on the jammed shredded paper (machine still would go in reverse BTW); I let it soak 5 mins, removed paper, tried shredding, and paper jammed again. No replacement parts are avl. I called again, gave case number. Rep suggested I oil the cutter now that paper was removed. I said cutters are oiled from removing paper. I was put on hold, only a short while.

Good outcome thus far: I was given fax number and instructions to receive gift card in 6-8 weeks upon their receipt of my fax (to 1-888-561-0785) of case number, name (first and last), mailing address, and copy of the receipt.

What I learned: Do the maintenance oiling monthly or more if needed! Try to buy a shredder that is beyond my shred needs, e.g., a 10-sheet cutter but use it only up to 8 pages. Try to buy a shredder that has replacement parts.

The price of the Ativa in 2008 was $40 ($30 instant savings taken at the register), and it didn't get daily or regular use.

Good product support on this Ativa product. Glad I saved my manual and receipt!!

I own a Royal ag 10x Paper Shredder — the cutting blades are packed with (unremovable) paper and the unit jams constantly, on even the smallest, lightest paper. Granted, perhaps I shredded something once...


If the machine runs...try putting some nail polish remover into the cutting blades while you run it in reverse...that might clear some of the "glue" then put shredder oilf onto the cutting blades for lubrication.....if its ruined give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

It keeps stoping and getting papers hug up in it


I suspect you may have shredded some papers with glue on them. There are many that have that really snot looking glue used to hold cards to the paper. This gets stuck between the blades. There are several brands of cleaning papers designed to help clean the blades and reduce this problem. They are available at any office products stores and many big-box stores.

Jammed with gummed stickers


Always put stickers in the shredder between two layers of 3-4 plain paper sheets. That's for future.
Now I would suggest getting some "Label Off", "Label Killer" or similar spray product, that will dissolve the glue, spraying the cutters and stuck labels with it several times, trying to remove them with tweezers or thin long-nose pliers. Be gentle, try not to blunt the cutters' edges.
When you get rid of the labels, spray more of the stuff on the cutters and clean them with a brush, to remove glue residue between them. Do it several times, rotating the cutters to remove the glue all around.
Then lubricate the cutters as per manufacturer's recommendations.
