How do I unjam it?


Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

Shredder won't turn on when plugged up


Shredders have a safety switch that won't allow it to run if it is off of the bin. Sometimes if the shredded is on the bin backwards it won't run because the plastic piece on the bin that presses the switch is only on one side of the bin. Sometimes if the switch goes bad, the shredder won't run.

Only goes in reverse


Lube might not be necessary. Unplug the shredder from the outlet. Lift it off the shredded paper bin and turn it over. It is very possible that you have a jam. If this is the case, remove as much paper as you can making sure that you don't use anything that could do damage to the cutter'shredder blades. Once you have removed as much paper as possible, place the shredder back on the bin making sure that it is aligned properly. One way of making sure is to check for any space between the shredder and bin. If you do have space make sure that you replaced the shredder correctly on the bin; you may have to turn it around 180 degrees. When you get the shredder properly aligned, use the switch (DO NOT USE PAPER AT THIS TIME) to switch the shredder from Forward (shredding) to Reverse. You may have to do this a couple of times so be patient. At this point the shredder should be working in both directions. If so, move the switch to Auto or the center position and try a SINGLE sheet of paper. If it shreds that piece of paper, then you have fixed it. Be sure not to insert more paper than the shredder is rated for. Also, unless it specifically states that it can handle staples, credit cards, etc. do NOT let any of these items run through your shredder.
If none of the above works, buy a new one - :)

How do I remove excess EXCESS oil from my shredder? It won't shred.


Asking why you should keep your shredder lubricated is no different than asking why you should change the oil in your car every 3,000 miles. Not only is proper maintenance a requirement to maintain an active warranty, but all mechanical parts need a little oil to help them turn smoothly and to keep them clean. Applying shredder oil to the cutting heads inside a shredder lubricates them so that they efficiently destroy documents sheet after sheet. Fortunately, you will find that taking good care of your shredder is less expensive, faster and easier than caring for your car.
Every time you shred a sheet of paper a fine dust made of tiny paper particles is produced. This dust collects in the cutting assembly of a paper shredder. If allowed to build up, this dust will compact until it completely blocks the smooth turning of the cutting head. Shredder oil will actually break up the compacted dust lodged in the cutting assembly, allowing the parts to move and push out the softened dust.
Shredder oil is specially formulated to eliminate oil residue on the cutting head. Other oils, like WD-40, will attract dust, further clogging the cutters. When lubricating your paper shredder, only use oil specifically designated for shredder use or risk voiding your warranty and further clogging your shredder.
The frequency with which you should oil your shredder depends on several factors: frequency of use, shredder capacity, cut size and type of paper. Your shredder will need more oil the more you use it, the more paper you shred at once and the thicker the paper is that you shred. Also, shredders with smaller shred sizes require extra oil. A 1/4" strip cut shredder used only one to two hours per week will only require a weekly oiling. A cross cut shredder, on the other hand, requires oil after every half hour of use. If you remember to oil your shredder every time you change the bag you'll be in good shape.
There are two fast, easy ways to oil a paper shredder:
The first method involves applying the oil directly to the cutting head. Shredder oil is packaged either in plastic squeeze bottles or aerosol cans, designed for easy application. No tools are required, just aim the bottle directly at the cutting head, through the paper entry point, and apply a fine stream of oil from one end of the cutter to the other. Run the machine in reverse for 10-15 seconds until the entire cutting mechanism is coated. Finally, shred a few pieces of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters.
The alternative method requires streaming oil onto a piece of paper. Do not soak the sheet in oil, but cover it evenly from edge to edge. Shred the oiled sheet of paper and then run the shredder in reverse for 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to coat the entire cutting mechanism. Finally, shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters. In any case, run a couple of sheets of paper through the shredder after oiling to remove excess oil. procedure may be repeated up to three times to ensure proper lubrication.
If you take a few seconds once a week or every time you change your shredder bag to oil the cutting mechanism in your paper shredder, you'll maintain your warranties and keep your shredder running smoothly and efficiently document after document.

Shredder stops shredding, you have to turn it off and on,


If I had designed a shredder, I would equip it with a circuit or device that would detect overloads (too much stock to shred) with either an overcurrent detector or a thermal shutoff so it's likely that one of these two methods is used in yours and if you are following the guidelines as to the maximum number of sheets, then this circuit is faulty and shutting the motor down too early.
