This just barely happened to me - I used needle nose pliers and a kitchen butter knife. It took 30 min but it will come out. Good luck!

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.

Ativa HS1000 (Vortex) - the red light indicating that the shredder tray is full is on, however it's empty. There is clearly a piece of paper stuck in the shredder, but it's not letting me reverse...


Disconnect from the electricity. Remove the bin. Flip the shredder upside down. Brush the blades to loosen/remove any cut paper. Then using a thin plier remove any jammed pieces of paper.

I have a Fellowes shredder P - 35C It will work in reverse but not inwards. I have left it for considerable time but still won't start up when I insert paper.


Unplug the shredder and check the shredding blades to be sure they are not jammed with paper. If paper is stuck in the blades, it will not function to add more paper to the jam. It WILL work in reverse to remove it's jam. Also make certain the blades have not been bent by discs, credit cards, or thick amounts of paper. If all looks well, blades are straight and not clogged with paper, be sure the door (if you have this type of machine) is closed properly. If not of this helps it run, you might need to have a professional look at it OR it might be time for a new shredder.

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

My fellowes paper shredder is not operating. we have lifted the shredder head and fitted it back on the basket but nothing happened


Hi,
Instructions
Step 1 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.
Step 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.
Step 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.
Step 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.
Step 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.
Good Luck!

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.

Infoguard shredder jam


When you set it to reverse, it Should propel the paper back out the top, where it's jammed. If it does not, remove power to the unit, and get ready for the long laborious process of removing the jam with a pair of tweezers. A hazard of paper shredders, maintenance can be a bit on the silly side.
