Shredder Malfunction I attempted to shred adhesive label, which I now know was wrong, that cause the shredder to malfunction. I suspect the adhesive caused the blade mechanism to stick together. Is there a way to fix the problem, such as using a liquid adhesive removal?

Unless you are going to take the entire shredder apart, you are not going to be able to get to the blades unless you were going to pour some kind of liquid adhesive removal into the blades.
This wouldn't be my 1st suggestion.

One thing you can try is, go to your local hardware store and purchase a pint or quart of 3 in 1 household oil. With the machine UNPLUGGED. **** Also I would place some sheets of paper towels inside the catch bin to absorb any excess oil that drips out. **** Pour the 3 in 1 oil into the blades and let it soak in. I would start with about 2- 4 ounces, then wait about 10 minutes to allow the oil to soak into the labels. Plug the machine in and try running 1 single sheet through the shredder. With any luck, some of the labels will either stick to the paper or drop into the basket. You might have to do this about 3-5 times.
** Remember to UNPLUG the shredder each time you are pouring the 3 in 1 oil on to the blades just as a safety precaution.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if it worked or not and also post a feedback / rating for me.
Have a good day.

If you machine will operate in reverse you might like to try this as a way to remove sticky substance from the cutter heads. Unplug the shredder from its power source and the apply some "Ronsonol Lighter Fluid" to the blades. Allow the lighter fluid to be absorbed between the cutters for a few moments. For the most part the lighter fluid evaporates quickly but at the same time it should dissolve the sticky substance caught btween the cutter heads.Allow five(5) minutes then plug your shredder back into a power source and try to shred some single sheets of scrap paper. If you are succesful with this attempt your next step should be to unplug the shredder once more and apply a light coating of oil to the cutter heads. Happy shredding.

Paper shredder doesn't move due to too much adhesive paper - how to fix it


Before trying anything I suggest, make sure your shredder isn't plugged in.
You will need to remove the adhesive from the rollers. You will need to use a glue solvent on the shredder rollers,something like Goo Be Gone. Personally, I still use Ronsonol Lighter Fluid In the image below I've outlined the supplies you'll need to, hopefully, clear your jam.



25346531-f3timxio4jyou4u0bydnlgfi-2-0.jpg Without disassembling your shredder, the best way to clear your jam is to use Rosonol Lighter Fluid (3), tweezers (4), and dental picks (5).
  1. Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. Separate the shredder from its shredded paper collection tub.
  2. Turn the shredder head upside down so that the paper output is facing up.
  3. Pour Rosonol lighter fluid on both sides of the rollers near where they come together.
  4. Use dental picks and tweezers to dislodge stuck paper pieces
  5. Turn Shredder head over and repeat steps 3 and 4
  6. Move power switch to the "Off" position
  7. Plug power cable back in
  8. Move power switch to "Rev" (reverse) position, if still stuck move power switch to the "Fwd" position, repeat twice
  9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 until the rollers move freely
Once the rollers are moving smoothly you need to oil the rollers.

Keeps stopping with overload light on. How can this be fixed


The most likely cause is that the shredded paper, has tightly wrapped itself in the blades. One possible cause is by shredding labels (like Avery Labels) or any paper which has adhesive on it. (Causes it to attach the cut pieces to between the cutters.) It reaches a point where there is so much bound up on the blades that even a single sheet of paper will cause an overload. The fix is simple to describe, but difficult to accomplish. You must go in and manually remove all of the paper bound up in the blades. It's not easy, I found that using a needle nose pliers worked best. Lot of digging and tugging (paper will pack between the blades very tightly). Sometimes a small, slotted screwdriver will aid in being able to pry out bits and pieces (it's not going to come out in anything but small chunks; at best). Don't forget to unplug your shredder before you start; those blades are sharp. This happened several times with my last shredder *Royal), but not once with my current shredder (Fellows). I tend to believe that the better quality shredders are worth the extra money. But any shredder will become a problem if you shred labels (like Avery) or paper products that has adhesive on it. (Another common mistake is shredding junk mail that has any kind of adhesive associated with it. Best to open and check first.) One other thing, ALL shredders need to be oiled on a regular basis. They make special oil for this, you can usually find small bottles of it at Wally World or the like. Best practice is to squirt some shredder oil in a serpentine pattern. over a piece of paper to be shredded and run it through. Do this whenever you empty the shredder bin. (Important for the life of your shredder.)

Tried to clean some shredded paper in the shred area that was stuck, and now shredder won't work.


Disconnect the shredder Turn the top unit over to reveal the 'teeth' With a pair of needle-pointed pliers or cosmetic tweezers gently pick out the pieces of paper that you can see. You'll probably notice that there was some self-adhesive label material included (that seems to cause jamming more than staples!
Hope this helps.

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred


Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Shredder Malfunction


Sounds like you have a jammed shredder. Unplug it, and then look under the shredding output side. You might see a bunch of compacted paper in there. If so, you'll need to have someone take it apart and remove the paper. Be sure the shredder is UNPLUGGED before you or anyone else attempts to do this.

My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode


Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.
