Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My staples spl-770M shredder was working fine then had an overheat light. I of course waited for it to cool down.. I have waited weeks and it still will not work.. I have opened it up and nothing appears jammed or paper jammed in it... I am not interested in throwing it out... WHat can I do to reset this.
Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

From the service manual:
"If the unit is shredding continuously for over
2 minutes, this will trip the motor overheat circuit.
This circuit terminates power automatically to
protect the motor from overheating. To reset the
circuit turn the unit off and wait about 30 minutes.
Then turn the unit back on and resume normal
Make sure to periodically empty the waste
receptacle to avoid overloading the basket and
damaging the cutting mechanism."
