There's only 1 true way to unblock the teeth, that's to put it in reverse to try to remove paper from the feeder channel. After that, unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and "dig" the paper out with a small knife, flathead screwdriver, or tweezers. The paper will come out a little at a time but eventually will come out in chunks. The only alternative would be to completely dismantle the shredder (not recommended).

Only goes in reverse when paper is inserted


Shredders have three settings
Manual forward
Manual reverse
Automatic

Better shredders also have sensors that turn on when paper is inserted. It sounds as if your is in reverse and auto start.

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.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

Auto mode the blades continue to turn


Unplug it! Clean the optics in the center where paper is inserted. You can do this with a cotton swab. Check to make sure no paper has lodged itself in the infeed center. If no optics, then check to see if a metal arm that activates the machine isn't stuck in the on position. This will be in the center of where paper is inserted. This repair might require the cover to be removed. Remember, unplug the shredder.

Have a level 6, won't shred


Unplug the shredder. When you remove the cover carefully remove the auto start sensors. There is a little pushdown tab.Clean them with a soft cloth. A kleenex will be ok. Re-insert them, making sure they lock in place. Plug the shredder in an see if that solves your problem.
