Have a Staples SPL-XC200d Paper Shredder. The 'add oil' light is on...but have added oil repeatedly. Does not need more oil. Have also unplugged overnight, thinking that would 'reset' the computer, no such luck. Shreds okay..just the 'add oil' is annoying. Any suggestions?

    I have the same shredder, and was wondering where you add the oil and what type you use? Would mineral oil work? I lost the manual, and I can't find any info online. Did you resolve your issue with the "add oil" light?

    I have the same problem. When I try to follow the instructions, the menu prompts with a "Maintain" button, but it also happens to be the same button used for ON/OFF. When I press the button, the unit turns itself off, but does not reset the lubrication count.

    Another mystery is that the "Lubricate" button does not seem to have a function. I tried using it instead of the "Maintain", but still no effect.

    Son of a gun, the 5 second rule is the key. Thanks.

    I use shredder lubricant sheets from Staples. Just run them through.

After you have added the shredder oil, you have to hold down the "Lubricate" button for about 5 seconds. This resets the counter and it will remind you to add oil when you have gone through about 250 more pages. Note: holding down the "Lubricate" button for 5 seconds will reset the counter and make the message disappear whether you add the oil or not, but it is highly recommended that you use the oil.

    I found a the pdf manual on the Staples website. It has information about the maintenance of the shredder

    Here is the link:
    http://www.product-support-staples.com/P...


    Quote from the manual:
    "MAINTAIN will illuminate on the LCD after approximately 250 operations. Add the Staples recommended lubricant listed below. Shredder lubricants are recommended for your shredder and will lengthen the lifespan of your machine. Apply lubricants, then press the maintain button. This will reset the counter."

You just need to push and hold the maintain button until the oil light goes off.

It may be clogged with shredded paper. With power removed, examine the shredding mechanism and remove any bits you find. You may not be able to remove all of the bits but enough to restore operation.

You can try cleaning it and maybe limiting shredding to one sheet at a time.

For the ID Armor ID-XC200D, where should I place the shredder oil?


You don't use liquid oil. At the office supply stores they carry oil sheets that you insert just like shredding something. They come ion various pkgs. Staples and Office Depot stores carry them. They are universal, no model number needed. I hope this helps.

Each time I use my staples SPL-616X shredder all the paper gets stuck around the blades what can I do? Do I need to put some oil on the blades?


Yes you do need to oil the blades, but it is important to get the right oil. Most stores that sell shredders, like Staples Office Supply, also sell shredder oil. J.

Shredder with Oil light - Never goes off


To revove the oil indicator light, HOLD DOWN the Maintain Button for alteast 7 seconds. This will reset the system. Per owners manual, this indicator comes on after 250 operations. The shredder should be lubricated after 30 minutes of shredding, or a minumum of twice a month. After lubercating, 1 -0z across blades, run in reverse for 10 seconds.
HAPPY SHREDDING!
