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.

Sqirt shredder oil on a piece of paper that you want to shred & feed it through your shredder. Do not soak the paper a little is all you need.

Yesterday when i was using it it started to make a really loud noise. reverse makes the normal noise but on auto it sounds bad. i cleaned out the inside but there is still paper stuck that i cant pull out....


It will not hurt to pour some lightweight shredder oil onto the cutting shafts....depending on how much you use the machine this should almost be part of a regular operation... I normally suggest to customers to pour the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper in an "S" pattern and then shred the sheet of paper....also shredders will work more reliably if you only shred about 70% of the rated capacity...less strain on the motor and parts and this results in fewer jams and longer machine life.

Shredder doesn't want to shred in forward gear, have to Reverse first then switch it to On/Auto. Have to keep going back & forth between Reverse & On/Auto to get document shredded. Shredder is less...


Shredders became popular when the identity theft thing started happening and to save money they stopped making them with quiet, powerful induction motors and now it's almost impossible to find a consumer model without the poor quality loud motors that don't have enough to power to operate the machine once it's a little dirty. Anyway, unplug it, and you're doing this at your own risk, take the shredder off the trash can or its own waste bin and turn it over. If it's straight cut shredder you will probably be able to see the slot where the shredder paper exits the blade area. If it's a crosscut shredder there might be a door that will close over the blades to cut you from getting cut. Respect that, but open this door, and see if there's bits of paper jammed up around the blades. Wear some protective gloves and use pliers or some kind of tool to dig out the compacted trash, being careful not to damage or bend the blades. Now you should pick up some shredder oil from your local office store, or see link to order. Follow the instructions on the oil, and this will make your shredder run with a lot less stress. This is only a temporary fix however. In a couple weeks or months you will have to do this again. It's all part of owning a paper shredder. If you like it that much, look into buying a nicer model. You totally get what you pay for with a paper shredder.
