SOURCE: Hello, I have a GBC Shredmaster 6120S

Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

SOURCE: How to fix a stuck shredder

get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the jammed paper out. (you may need to figure out how to pop off the top cover to get better access to the blades)

Cannot get it shred forward or reverse. Is there a reset or fuse Paper shredder


probably has broken gears. Aurora does not produce replacement parts for any of their machines. Actually made by Royal and they don't make parts either so don't buy either brand.I guess Fellows is about the best brand or GBC.

Automatic Shredding


I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.
