Unplug it and look inside the shredding blades, especially around the spot usually near the center, where there is a pressure button. When paper hits it, it starts shredding. Chances are some pieces of paper have jammed just over it stopping paper from hitting it and switching it on. I have had to use long tweezers to work the jammed bits out... Once clear it will work again. Also using shredder oil every 50 sheets through will help it cut easier , and jam less frequently. Do not put too many sheets through together in a bunch. No staples...

Stuck shredder


1. Turn the shredder off and unplug it. You DO NOT want to be poking round in those sharp blades and have it accidentally switch on!
2. Take the top off the shredder and place it on a big piece of newspaper, or somewhere you can easily sweep up mess.
3. Begin by getting a pair of tweezers and taking pieces of paper from one end of the shredding blades. This will loosen it up and give you more room to get the rest out.

4. Carry on tugging the strips of paper out. It helps if you don't just pull a clump, but wiggle it from side to side. This will get the whole strip out, not just the top.
5. If any pieces are curled around the blades and you can't free them, cut them with a knife and then tug them out.
6. Once it's mostly cleared, put the top back on and switch the shredder on. Put it in Reverse Mode so it will spit the last pieces for you to remove.
7. If it's cleared out, continue shredding:)
Hope this Helps!

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.

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 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.
    • 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. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. 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.

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.

My shredder stopped working in the middle of a shred. I have cleaned all shredding from it, but it still refuses to run. Is there a thermo cut off switch, and if so, where?


  • Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.

  • 2

    Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.

  • 3

    Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.

  • 4

    Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.

  • 5

    Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.

    Shredder is jammed


    hello. follow these steps:

    1. Turn the shredder off at the wall and unplug it. You DO NOT want to be poking round in those sharp blades and have it accidentally switch on!
    2. Take the top off the shredder and place it on a big piece of newspaper, or somewhere you can easily sweep up mess.
    3. Begin by getting a pair of tweezers and taking pieces of paper from one end of the shredding blades. This will loosen it up and give you more room to get the rest out.
    4. Carry on tugging the strips of paper out. It helps if you don't just pull a clump, but wiggle it from side to side. This will get the whole strip out, not just the top.
    5. If any pieces are curled round and you can't free them, cut them with the knife and then tug them out.
    6. Once it's mostly cleared, put the top back on and switch the shredder on. Put it on Reverse mode so it will spit the last bits back up for you to remove.
    7. If it's clear, continue shredding!

    [edit] Tips
    • Remember to wiggle the paper, not just pull.
    • Shake it occasionally to get smaller pieces of paper out of the blades.
    • Try not to jam it in the first place (avoid loading a lot of paper or thick sheets of newspaper).
    • Use oil paper or performance oil to lubricate the blades on a regular basis. For an office shredder, medium to heavy usage can require lubrication as often as every three days.
    • To prevent the shredder blades from dulling, remove paper clips and staples before shredding. Shredding CDs and DVDs also cause premature wear & tear. Use the Disc Eraser (www.DiscEraser.com) if you have sensitive discs.

    [edit] Warnings
    • Always turn the shredder off at the wall and unplug it! You don't want shredded fingers!
    • Be careful with the blades - they are sharp and you could cut yourself.

    [edit] Things You'll Need
    • A pair of tweezers
    • A small, sharp knife

    Shredded paper is wrapped around blades


    Try saturating paper jam with liquid vegetable based cooking oil from your kitchen this should soften the paper after sitting 6-7 hours
