Squeeling belt? How to replace?

SilentBob, thanks for the info you gave me about oiling the blades and/or replacing the belt. The oil did not work. So how do I go about replacing the belt. The instructions for the shredder give little info and no info on repairs. Do I have to call a service person?

Thanks,
NanaGil

A tech would be the best idea. The unit you own is chiniese and very hard to find parts for, so you may need to call around a little.

Does sewing machine oil work as well as shredder oil?


do not use oil in a shredder
the paper becomes contaminated and will not cut
besides that all the oil will be moved by the first sheet of paper shredded
if the paper is not being cut properly get new blades or a new shredder

My shredder squeaks when in use, does it need regular lubrication? If so, what do I use?


Visit the link below for various types of shredder oils.
http://www.factory-express.com/Shredder_Oil__Bags-2025.htm
Regular use of paper shredders creates paper dust that can dry out components, dull the blades, clog the machine and burn out the motor. However, with proper oiling and maintenance, a paper shredder can last for years.
Oiling a shredder can be accomplished using one of two quick methods. The paper method limits excess oil to the paper, reducing the chance of it splattering when you turn the machine back on. This method is more common than the second and can be used with all kinds of shredders. The paperless method may be less common, but it is just as effective at removing dust buildup from the blades of the shredder.
The Paper Method:1. Place a sheet of paper on or above a surface that will not be marred or damaged should you spill oil on it.2. Apply the oil to one side of the paper in a wide zigzag pattern across the whole face of the page to ensure sufficient coverage. Do not saturate the paper with oil.
3. Turn the shredder on and run the oiled piece of paper through the shredder. As the paper shreds, the oil that has been absorbed by the paper will lubricate the blades. The motion of the blades will distribute oil so the shredder continues to operate smoothly.
3. Feed a few more papers into the shredder to absorb residual oil from the cutting assembly. The Paperless Method:1. Set the shredder to manual mode so you can control the direction of the blades and the amount of time the blades are in motion.2. With the paper shredder turned off, squirt a solid line of oil into the paper entry lengthwise across the paper-shredder blades.
3. Start
the paper shredder in reverse, allowing it to run for 10 to 20 seconds before stopping the blades. This will evenly distribute the oil to all parts of the cutting assembly.
4. Return
the shredder to automatic mode. Then feed two or three sheets of paper into it to absorb the excess oil from the machine. Tip:
How often you should oil your paper shredder depends mostly on how much you use it. Office shredders that see heavy use every day will need to be oiled several times a week, while home machines used occasionally need be oiled only a few times a year. Cross-cut shredders will require more frequent oiling than other paper shredder varieties because they have more blades and create much more paper dust.
You can purchase a shredder lubricating oil from any major electronic or office supplies store or you can contact Royal customer service at 908-429-4357.

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.

My embassy schredder won't work although the light is on what should i do? is there some way maybe i can oil it or something because it's not clogged up or anything? what to do?


  • Cross cut shredders require more frequent oiling versus the straight strip shredders. The more paper and use it gets the more oil it requires. A good rule of thumb is to oil the machine each time you change the bag.
  • Use only shredder oil designed for the specific brand of paper shredder you have. Manufacturers design paper shredder oils to be heat tolerant for the cylinders and blades, and they calibrate them specifically for their machines.
  • Spray, squirt or run a bead of oil across the blade opening. It shouldn't take more than a second or two to reach from one end to the other. Any more than that may result in too much oil applied. Quicker than that means there isn't enough oil to adequately lubricate the machine.
  • Turn the paper shredder to "Manual" and run the gears in reverse for a few seconds, then turn the shredder on "Forward" or "Standard" mode. This ensures that you distribute the oil throughout the machine, and going in reverse first forces some of the dripping oil back up, and then the forward moving blades push it back through the gears.
  • Oil a sheet of paper rather than the machine. Don't just run a bead of oil across the bottom of the sheet because the paper soaks up the oil and the oil may not reach all of the necessary parts. Instead, spray the whole sheet, or run a zigzag line across the paper and immediately send it through the shredder tooil it.

    I have a Ativa DQ60M Paper Shredder and it is very clogged with paper and it looks like some of the blades are slightly bent. Can it be sent in for repair or warranty?


    Take away info: 3-year warranty on cutter.

    Office Depot item #405935: Ativa DQ83M Diamond-Cut Shredder (mine show model ...Mn. It has a 1-year warranty for product, BUT ALSO a 3-year warranty for the "cutting cylinders". Call 1-877-777-HELP; www.ativaproducts.com .
    I called 12-29-2010. Rep had difficulty finding product, put me on hold, found it. Said prod only has 1-yr w (per Office Depot online, this is all that is given as to info); but I said, no, 3-yr on cutter. I held again, rep researched and agreed. I took a case number and tried rep's troubleshooting suggestion: I put 3-in-1 oil (veg oil suggested by rep too) on the jammed shredded paper (machine still would go in reverse BTW); I let it soak 5 mins, removed paper, tried shredding, and paper jammed again. No replacement parts are avl. I called again, gave case number. Rep suggested I oil the cutter now that paper was removed. I said cutters are oiled from removing paper. I was put on hold, only a short while.

    Good outcome thus far: I was given fax number and instructions to receive gift card in 6-8 weeks upon their receipt of my fax (to 1-888-561-0785) of case number, name (first and last), mailing address, and copy of the receipt.

    What I learned: Do the maintenance oiling monthly or more if needed! Try to buy a shredder that is beyond my shred needs, e.g., a 10-sheet cutter but use it only up to 8 pages. Try to buy a shredder that has replacement parts.

    The price of the Ativa in 2008 was $40 ($30 instant savings taken at the register), and it didn't get daily or regular use.

    Good product support on this Ativa product. Glad I saved my manual and receipt!!

    Paper always packs up in the blades and it will not cut more than 1 sheet at a time. Sometimes not even that. Any solutions for this? I constantly have to dig the paper out of the blades, even after...


    All x-cut shredders should be oiled. Buy some shredder oil ( this is a lightweight oil ) from your local store then pour some of the oil across the cutting blades where you insert the paper. After putting the oil in run the machine in reverse...this will help get the oil all thro the cutting mechanism. Then start shredding 1, then 2, then 3 etc, etc sheets at a time...when you hear the motor starting to "labour" to take the sheets thro'..then you have just about reached the point where "thats its maximum". You should occassionaly shred a sheet of paper with a bead of oil on it ( in an "S" pattern) to help keep the mechanism lubricated. Running the machine at about no more than 75% of its maximum capacity and regular oiling will prolong the machines life.

    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.

    I would definately say that you ahve some sort of jam in the lower half of the unit. If this is not the case, and you can see through it from bottom side up, then you have a belt slipping. There are 'toothed' belts that drive these. Most people call them timing belts, if you can get a hold of one or make sure yours hasn't come loose, I would.

    Blades all bent and paper still twisted on them.


    Proper procedure for oiling a shredder is to wet a sheet of paper with the oil across the width of the sheet
    and allow the oil to saturate the sheet before feeding the sheet though the CLEAN shredder for which there
    are brushes that will accomplish the cleaning job, which should precede the lubrication job.

    You need a wire brush, supplied by your original vendor, if Office Depot, as shown here, before giving up
    on the shredder you have. As to supply of a new set of blades, replacement of the shredder is cheaper.
