Remember this is a "consumer" shredder NOT a commercial shredder..... if you shred for 5 minutes you should give the machine 10 minutes for the motor to "cool-down"...it will not hurt if you also shred some paper with shredder oil poured onto the paper so that the oil lubricates the cutting blades...lastly; if the shredder is rated to a Max. of 10 sheets(as an example.)..you will have fewer problems if you only shred about 70 % of that number. ***Think of your car...it will go 100m.p.h.....but how long will it last if you drive it at its maximum speed all the time.????

My Black & Decker Shredder #BD-61 all of a sudden does not work. I used it tonight, but the next time I tried it does not work. The lights come on in both positions, but


On some shredders when both the forward and reverse LEDs are on it can indicate either a jam or a full receiver bag/ container (the area that the shredded paper is fed into).
Try the following steps:
  1. ) unplug the power
  2. ) open up the shredder (see 1 on diagram)
  3. ) empty out all the shredded paper (see 2 on diagram)
  4. ) check that the shredding jaws (both the entrance and exit) are clear of any shredded material (see 3 on diagram)
  5. ) put everything back together
  6. ) plug power cord back in
  7. ) force the shredder into reverse (see 4 on diagram)

Hopefully you should hear your shredder motor running. If it is switch it to automatic and try shredding again

Shredder No Longer Does


Office shredders, even the heavy-duty ones, tend to jam up over time and have to be cleaned up to restore operation. If you have removed all jammed paper bits and still get erratic operation, the shredding process may have bent or broken some internal parts. It is not economically practical to try to repair. Better to buy a replacement.

Staples Shredder SPL-S302D I think I need a new


Take a look underneath where the shredding mechanism is and remove every bit of paper. It is a messy job, but necessary. When you finish, the shredder probably will function normally. Also, ignore the advertised sheet capacity and feed one sheet at a time. Stop when the bin is half full, dump it, and repeat the bit-by-bit cleaning process. I just went thorough this exercise yesterday!

Home paper shredders tend to accumulate bits of paper that have to be cleaned out from time to time. With power off, turn the shredding mechanism upside down and look for scraps or wadded up strips. Sometimes only tweezers and persistence will get rid of all.

I'm an intern at a law firm and i shred papers everyday. Sometimes the shredder stops working and when i feel it it feels really hot so i assume its overheated due to shredding (i shred probably 1000+...


you may have just been trying to shred to many papers at a time. you could just remove them and turn the shredder on. if the sound is still being made there is a good possibility that the shedder is going to be completely useless soon and you may want to look into a new one.

Fellowes 3011001 shredder stopped shredding. tried to remove shredded pieces but could not.


First, try switching to reverse, alot of times, stuck paper will come back out in reverse. Then unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and with a small flathead screwdriver, knife, or tweezers, dig out pieces of paper. It takes alot of effort but by digging small pieces out, a little at a time, you can get most of the paper free.

It stopped working after a big shred. I suspect an overheat. How do I reset it?


it's overheated, after you turn on the shredder, is it working?
if not, that means your shredder's motor is death.
need to buy a new shredder.

Royal VF12mx shredder


Pour some shredder oil in the throat where you normally insert the paper...put some shredder oil directly onto 1 sheet of paper and try shredding 1 sheet. If it wont even shred 1 sheet I would ask is the shredder running???

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.
