You have some teeth missing off of one of the gears, most likely the dual gear thats driven by the motor.

My power shredder W11C stopped working forwards and backwards. The power source is O K


Dear Edward,
Most of the shredders have a micro switch that senses if the paper has been introduced to the shredding slot, or not
These micro switches are activated by a little arm/leveler that touches the paper and activates de contact inside the shredder housing.
While disconnected from the power, try to check if the switch is working properly. Check if you can hear a "click noise" while moving it back and forth by using a paper clip (or a toothpick). When this sensor arm is broken, the device will not operate since it does not detect the presence of a paper sheet to be shredded (and the power to hte motor is shut off).
If this does not solve your investigation process, please make sure your power cord is fine. Otherwise, it would be an internal electric problem in the device (obviously!!!)
One additional possibility (since I have no further details from you) is that the device is on and you can hear the motor running but the paper is not being pulled by the blades - in this case gears that move the shredder blades are most probably broken (that has happened to my shredder - and I had to dump it).
I hope this gives you some light in further investigating your problem.
Good luck!

Omnitech shredder ot-nxc18pa won't power up


Dear Bruce,
Here is some generic information about shredders that may help you.
Most of the shredders have a micro switch that senses if the paper has been introduced to the shredding slot.
These micro switches are activated by a little arm/leveler that touches the paper and activates de contact inside the shredder housing.
While disconnected from the power, try to check if the switch is working properly. Check if you can hear a "click noise" while moving it back and forth by using a paper clip. When this sensor arm is broken, the device will not operate since it does not detect the presence of a paper sheet to be shredded.
Make sure your power is on (not only connected to the wall - but check if there is any indicator in the shredder). If the arm is not broken and you still hear the click noise indicating the micro switch is being activated, then your problem could still be the power since there is not LED indicator in the panel of this device.
If this does not solve your investigation process, please make sure your power cord is fine. Otherwise, it would be an internal electric problem in the device.
One additional possibility (since I have no further details from you) is that the device is on, you can hear the motor running but the gears that move the shredder blades are broken (that has happened to my device).
I hope this gives you some light in further investigating your problem.
Good luck!

Only goes in reverse


Lube might not be necessary. Unplug the shredder from the outlet. Lift it off the shredded paper bin and turn it over. It is very possible that you have a jam. If this is the case, remove as much paper as you can making sure that you don't use anything that could do damage to the cutter'shredder blades. Once you have removed as much paper as possible, place the shredder back on the bin making sure that it is aligned properly. One way of making sure is to check for any space between the shredder and bin. If you do have space make sure that you replaced the shredder correctly on the bin; you may have to turn it around 180 degrees. When you get the shredder properly aligned, use the switch (DO NOT USE PAPER AT THIS TIME) to switch the shredder from Forward (shredding) to Reverse. You may have to do this a couple of times so be patient. At this point the shredder should be working in both directions. If so, move the switch to Auto or the center position and try a SINGLE sheet of paper. If it shreds that piece of paper, then you have fixed it. Be sure not to insert more paper than the shredder is rated for. Also, unless it specifically states that it can handle staples, credit cards, etc. do NOT let any of these items run through your shredder.
If none of the above works, buy a new one - :)

Knocking noise when shredding paper


Hello,

Cross-cut shredders require monthly oiling of the cutting cylinders to maintain proper operation. Failure to oil the blades regularly could result in excessive noise during operation.

Oiling Your Shredder's Cutting Blades:

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three times.

I hope the above helps....

Good luck.

Machine won't shred. Does turn on, and goes in


You dont say make or model so...get some shredder oil into the cutting teeth where you insert the paper...especially if its a x-cut shredder..make sure once in a while you shred a piece of paper with some of the oil poured onto the paper for lubrication of the cutting blades.

Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.


Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.

Makes noise but won't shred


Had the same prob with a Schneider shredder. The roll pin that secures the nylon driven wheel to the blades shaft was sheared. Easy fix in a way but original pin was a metric size.
