OD1500 shredder Can they be repaired - if so by whom or is it best to get a new machine

I cleaned the top of my shredder using a kitchen spray. I dried it and it was clean. I turned on the power and noticed a small wisp smoke coming from a vent. I had left the power on at the wall, I pressed the shred button and there was a crackle and then bang from the switch. Now its not working !!!

It is best to just replace it, parts are seldom made for non commercial machines like this

I have an E350 with 3 point took up. Can't get the deck to drop. It has a shredder hooked up and it will raise it up and lower it a little but not far enough down to shred.


try spray silicon lubricant through the top of the paper shredder and also from underneath the machine.

most shredders have special paper that has lubricant in the paper and you have to buy it and run it through the machine after xxxx amount of paper shredding, i just use spray
BUT NEVER USE WD40 IT WILL GUM UP THE MACHINE

SHREDDER CONTINUALLY SAYS OVERLOAD EVEN THOUGH 2 SHEETS OF PAPER ARE INSERTED


It might need cleaning; mine had the shredded paper jammed in by cutters and some shreds got between the gears. First, try using a "cleaning sheet": a piece of paper lightly sprayed or smeared with vegetable oil or spray cooking oil. If that doesn't do fix it, the shredding mechanism, which has many parts, some of which are sharp as razors, might need to be disassembled and cleaned. Though I did that disassembly and cleaning, I would not recommend it to the casual DIY-er.

I have a Royal Orca 9512x paper shredder. When I use it , it makes a very loud ,metallic squeeking sound. How can I correct this? It shreds fine. It's just noisey.


Hi,
To fix this get some dry Graphite spray lube....

Spray graphite

Spray this on the cutters and sides of the cutters to lube the cutters and bearings....this will stop the noise...and prolong the life of the machine...

The shredder will not automatically shut off. After you have finished feeding the documents to be shreeded the machine contunues to run and you must manuall shut it off.


depending on what you have available, either a damp paper towel or alcohol wipe, or compressed air will work to clean the sensor eye located top at the center of the paper feed opening, you should see a little dot wipe, or spray these out well, then turn the machine off and back on again.
built up dust from the paper causes the sensor to keep registering that there is paper coming in hence it won't stop on its own.

Sometimes spraying shredder oil on the cutting teeth wil work.

You should shred paper with a light weight machine oil poured on the paper to keep the cutting teeth working freely.

Good luck.

P.S. If this doesn't work then just take the head off and cleanj/lubricate any bearings you find.

The paper is stuck in the shedder and now it will not turn on/off


Try reverse, forward, reverse a few times. If thet doesn't work, unplug it, turn the shredding unit off and pick out whatever paper you can see, both top and bottom. Watch your fingers, the cutters are sharp.

Shredder is very sluggish


Yes they require lubrication

You can buy shredder oil from lots of office equipment suppliers

To see if it helps spray some WD40 (using the plastic extender) into either side of the opening where you normally put the paper.

Switch the machine on to run continually and give the blades another good spray

This should loosed up any dust which has gathered

If the machine picks up its pace then go buy some real shredder oil and use it before every operation

Do not go mad with the amount you apply but dont skimp

Fellowes crosscut shredder does not shut off


I got an email from Fellowes technical support suggesting I use alcohol and a cotton swab on the sensors after unplugging it. That fixed my problem.

Paper will not feed into machine


Most likely the sensor in the insertion area is not recognizing a paper when you try to insert it to be shredded.

Try to clean out the gears, and oil the grinders.

Clean around the insertion area to remove any debris from around the sensor. (Be sure to turn it off/unplug it first!).

If you can remove the shredder head/grinders from the body of the shredder box, turn it upside down and clean it that way as well.

Sometimes the little pieces of paper get clogged up inside the gears.

I got some of the dust spray with the straw...inserted the straw deep into the shredder grinder/gears and sprayed.  I got tons of stuff out.

My motor/grinder worked perfect after I did all this.

Good luck!
