Clogged shredder blades


Please don't put your fingers near the shredder blades or put any foreign object near the shredder blades when operating the machine.

Most machines will allow you to reverse the shredder blades and it will clear the clog.

If this doesn't work, I turn the machine off and unplug it. Then I use tweezers to pull the paper out.

Good luck.

Our C220c shredder does not shred, motor turns and blades turn but i think the blades are blunt. Can you get new ones or have the old blades sharpened?


There are 2 shafts that have the cutting blades on them and they both should turn. I have replaced many gears on this model and suspect that a gear is broken. Fellowes does not have many parts this model anymore. I would call a local shredder repair service or you can call Fellowes at 800-955-0959.

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

Why is the fellowes blade still rotating even when there is no paper?


It is possible that a small shred of paper is lodged at the sensor underneath the cutting blade.
    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers or use canned air and blow the edges of the blades.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse.
    • 3 Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

Knocking noise when shredding paper


Hello,

Cross-cut shredders require monthly oiling of the cutting cylinders to maintain proper operation. Failure to oil the blades regularly could result in excessive noise during operation.

Oiling Your Shredder's Cutting Blades:

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three times.

I hope the above helps....

Good luck.

Shredder doesn't want to shred in forward gear, have to Reverse first then switch it to On/Auto. Have to keep going back & forth between Reverse & On/Auto to get document shredded. Shredder is less...


Shredders became popular when the identity theft thing started happening and to save money they stopped making them with quiet, powerful induction motors and now it's almost impossible to find a consumer model without the poor quality loud motors that don't have enough to power to operate the machine once it's a little dirty. Anyway, unplug it, and you're doing this at your own risk, take the shredder off the trash can or its own waste bin and turn it over. If it's straight cut shredder you will probably be able to see the slot where the shredder paper exits the blade area. If it's a crosscut shredder there might be a door that will close over the blades to cut you from getting cut. Respect that, but open this door, and see if there's bits of paper jammed up around the blades. Wear some protective gloves and use pliers or some kind of tool to dig out the compacted trash, being careful not to damage or bend the blades. Now you should pick up some shredder oil from your local office store, or see link to order. Follow the instructions on the oil, and this will make your shredder run with a lot less stress. This is only a temporary fix however. In a couple weeks or months you will have to do this again. It's all part of owning a paper shredder. If you like it that much, look into buying a nicer model. You totally get what you pay for with a paper shredder.

XF50D motor won't turn shredder blades


There is no viable solution.  There are no replacement parts available.  The Office Depot shredder is a cheap low quality product made by a cheap company.  The FIXYA service agreement costs more than the product.  Bad choice to buy the product!

Fellowes DM8C shredder


What does the owners manusl tell you that the page limit is? Do not exceed it, and maybe just reduce it by one page at a time until you get the proper shred. Can not be sharpened. It would be cheaper to buy a new shredder.
