If you have got the top off, with the mains lead unplugged, gently rotate the cooling fan blade on the end of the motor, whilst looking at the shredder blades. you should see the blades moving very slowly. make sure the blades are rotating upwards, to clear the jam.

Try saturating left over paper with shredder oil and let sit for 4-5 hours or more this should soften paper enough to remove easier although it may be a little messy

I have paper stuck in the top of my shredder, How do I remove It?


This happens more tomes than I can count with my mom. You cant feed an feed it an not stop an clean out the shreads that build up in the teeth. You will need to remove the top or how ever you can get it apart. Get what ever tool you can find an begin clearing all the paper from the teeth or rollers. You will notice a switch on the side that gets jammed at times an stops the unit. Also if it got to hot you can reverse it an the paper will back out. They quit from heat, to thick or many sheets at once, an paper jams. I used a pencil an a paper clip once. Use what ever it takes.

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?


That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

My handyman took apart my Champion WQ120D paper shredder to remove the checkbook that was jammed. But it looked to him as if some transisters were burned. Once together again, minus a plastic shim at the...


It sounds like the shredder overloaded when you tried to shred the checkbook. If there is a smell of burned electronics this probably means that the shreader is dead. The plastic shims have nothing to do with the turning on and off of the shredder. Next time buy a shredder that is rated for at least 7-8 sheets, indicating a more powerful motor and sturdier blades. If the current shredder was repairable, it would be cost prohibitive over buying a replacement. Sorry for the bad news.

Paper won't feed


You most likely have a little tiny paper jam in the roller. Your best bet is to remove the screws and very slowly pull it apart so no parts are moved or fall out. then just take your time and look around for the jam and remove it.

Fellowes C220 Shredder Jam


First unplug shredder. You can remove the top and start removing paper. It can be quite time consuming. I can't remember if this model uses plastic paper strippers or not. If it does, they may have broken when the shredder jammed. They strip the paper from the cutters.

Shredder rollers do not turn; motor works good; all gears go arou


Will it work in reverse? Can you see the gears are they all moving? Is there a set pin?

Fellowes PS-70 Shredder jam


I used needle-nose pliers and regular pliers to pull out all of the jammed paper -- it took an hour but I finally got it. I never did find a release mechanism even after I took the top apart. Thanks anyway!

Huge paper jam ( piece of a checkbook)


Throw it out and buy a new one! staples won't replace this unit and your gonna have to take it apart and clean the gears.
Also tell your employees to stop reversing the drive gears with paper inside the bucket it only reverses the flow and jams the unit.
I would buy a cross cut shredder next time.
Hope that helps.
