    want shut off after shredding paper

  • Anonymous Dec 14, 2008

    Axus Champion Cross Cut Shredder MQ60B. It cuts/comes on and off except 2 facing roller blades are out of shape and shredded paper is getting stuck in those blades. Is there anyway I can fix it? May be replace those blades or move them to on end and stop using that side. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Buy a new shredder. At $19.95, this likely is not something you can keep running indefinitely. Part support seems non-existent and the website the label on the shredder says to contact (www.championshredder.com) does not work. I tried looking for blades for the MQ60B, but seems best to just go for a reputable brand that offers support if needed.

Mine now just has the same problem. On mine it was because two of the cutting blades have become bent. It still shreds, but not as fast. You have to turn it on for a split second to see all the blades. You can only see about 1/4 of the blades at a time.
There is nothing you can do. And because my blades are bent it does't dispose of paper properly and also will not turn off automatically now.

It goes to overload very quickly, sometimes on the first try. What can be done to correct this?


Suggest pull plug. Remove and turn over unit. Clear out any remaining cuttings cleaning out any remnants such as credit cards and other plastic. Careful the blades are sharp

Purchase pre-oiled sheets of shredder paper or shredder oil from an office supply. Apply oil across mouth of shredder and cycle in reverse. Operate as normally after adding oil.

Try not to over load and add shredder oil as the unit starts to bog down in the future.

Runs in reverse and forward ,when insert paper blades won't let paper in


unplug it and then use compressed air (duster can used for pc's) spray this into unit and into teeth area. This should dislodge any unseen material.. (TIP - don't put any staples or clips in the shredder) even thou it says you can - this can cause a jam as well as not recognize paper. I recommend you get Shredder OIL to use 1 a month to keep your shedder in good condition

How to Oil a Paper Shredder shredder_oil.jpg Paper Shredder OilProper shredder maintenance is required by all paper shredder manufacturers to maintain warranty coverage. Perhaps the most effective way to care for your shredder is to oil the cutting heads regularly. Why should I Oil my Paper Shredder?

The frequency of shredder oil applications is determined by a number of factors. First of all cross cut shredders must be oiled more often than strip cut shredders do. A cross cut paper shredder will require regular applications of shredder oil while a strip cut can go for a longer period of time without decreased performance. Secondly, paper shredders that are used more will need more lubrication. A paper shredder under heavy usage will need oil about once every four hours, while one under normal use will only require oil once or twice a month. Most manufacturers recommend oiling the cutters once every 30 minutes of accumulative shredding, but an easy way to remember is just to oil your paper shredder every time you change the bag. The type of material as well as amounts fed at once can also effect performance and lead to the need for oil.

Directions
You should only use specifically designed shredder oil to oil your paper shredder. This oil is designed to lubricate precision heat treated shredder cylinders, and any other lubricant or oil will void the manufacturers warranty. So don't use WD-40 or the like to oil your paper shredder.

Shredder oil can come in both liquid and aerosol varieties. However, the most common is liquid shredder oil.

The first way to oil your shredder is to spray or squirt lubricant into the opening and onto the cutting heads. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly onto the cutting head in a fine stream. This is done through the paper entry throat. Take 1-2 seconds to oil from one side of the opening to the other. Turn the machine in reverse for about 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to all parts of the cutting head. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil.

The other, and perhaps most common, way to oil your paper shredder is illustrated in the image above. Simply spread a small amount of shredder oil onto a piece of paper in a zig-zag type motion. Make sure that you spread the oil over the entire sheet. (NOTE: you don't need to soak the paper in oil, just ensure total and even coverage.) Feed this sheet through the shredder and then operate the machine in the reverse mode for a few seconds. This will make sure the oil is dispersed throughout the shredders cutting cylinders. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil. You may want to repeat this procedure depending on the results, and is recommended for up to three applications to be assured of thorough oiling.

You should oil your cross cut shredder on a regular basis. If you are shredding a small quantity such as only 50 sheets a week or if you are using a small shredder, then you should oil your shredder every other day. If you are shredding a large quantity such as hundreds of sheets, then oil after 30 minutes of usage or after you empty the bag.

Start oiling your paper shredder now. The shredder will run smoother, faster, and put less strain on the overall motor, gears, and bearings.

Every time we insert paper, even one sheet, it goes to overload. We cleaned out all paper from inside and its still doing it.


Have you ever oiled the machine...its a cross cut shredder and you are supposed to regularly lubricate the cuttting shafts with shredder oil.

When you put paper in it starts to shred for about 1/4 inch then goes to reverse. No jams that I can see. Can run forward and reverse without paper with no problem. Sensor problem?


No mention of make or model however this holds true for all shredders.... especially if its a "cross-cut" shredder; put some shredder oil onto the cutting shafts where you insert the paper this will help get rid of some of the build-up that occurs due to the shredding process...also give the "eyes" in the middle of the "throat" a clan with a soft cloth( unplug the machine first or it will start to run and take your cloth in.) Occasionaly shrd a sheet of paper with some shredder oil poured directly onto the paper..this will help lubricate the cutting blades. Lastly...only shred up to about 70% of the rated cpacity..this will result in fewer jams an longer machine life.

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.

How do I remove excess EXCESS oil from my shredder? It won't shred.


Asking why you should keep your shredder lubricated is no different than asking why you should change the oil in your car every 3,000 miles. Not only is proper maintenance a requirement to maintain an active warranty, but all mechanical parts need a little oil to help them turn smoothly and to keep them clean. Applying shredder oil to the cutting heads inside a shredder lubricates them so that they efficiently destroy documents sheet after sheet. Fortunately, you will find that taking good care of your shredder is less expensive, faster and easier than caring for your car.
Every time you shred a sheet of paper a fine dust made of tiny paper particles is produced. This dust collects in the cutting assembly of a paper shredder. If allowed to build up, this dust will compact until it completely blocks the smooth turning of the cutting head. Shredder oil will actually break up the compacted dust lodged in the cutting assembly, allowing the parts to move and push out the softened dust.
Shredder oil is specially formulated to eliminate oil residue on the cutting head. Other oils, like WD-40, will attract dust, further clogging the cutters. When lubricating your paper shredder, only use oil specifically designated for shredder use or risk voiding your warranty and further clogging your shredder.
The frequency with which you should oil your shredder depends on several factors: frequency of use, shredder capacity, cut size and type of paper. Your shredder will need more oil the more you use it, the more paper you shred at once and the thicker the paper is that you shred. Also, shredders with smaller shred sizes require extra oil. A 1/4" strip cut shredder used only one to two hours per week will only require a weekly oiling. A cross cut shredder, on the other hand, requires oil after every half hour of use. If you remember to oil your shredder every time you change the bag you'll be in good shape.
There are two fast, easy ways to oil a paper shredder:
The first method involves applying the oil directly to the cutting head. Shredder oil is packaged either in plastic squeeze bottles or aerosol cans, designed for easy application. No tools are required, just aim the bottle directly at the cutting head, through the paper entry point, and apply a fine stream of oil from one end of the cutter to the other. Run the machine in reverse for 10-15 seconds until the entire cutting mechanism is coated. Finally, shred a few pieces of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters.
The alternative method requires streaming oil onto a piece of paper. Do not soak the sheet in oil, but cover it evenly from edge to edge. Shred the oiled sheet of paper and then run the shredder in reverse for 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to coat the entire cutting mechanism. Finally, shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters. In any case, run a couple of sheets of paper through the shredder after oiling to remove excess oil. procedure may be repeated up to three times to ensure proper lubrication.
If you take a few seconds once a week or every time you change your shredder bag to oil the cutting mechanism in your paper shredder, you'll maintain your warranties and keep your shredder running smoothly and efficiently document after document.

The shredder will not cut the paper. the motor


I just had this problem. I took the screws out from the bottom of the shredder and opened it up, take a look and see if there are any cracks around the frame that surrounds and holds the shredder in place, if so you have to glue the crack so the frame is stable again.(the crack/break in the frame prevents the paper from cutting because the teeth on the shredder are not fitted properly). hope this helps.
