Unjamming the shredder is sometimes complicated by what was put thru in the first place.
Run the shredder in reverse to pull out the offending material.
If there remains parts of the debris still obstructing the blades, run it forwards then backwards several times (like rocking a car out of mud)
If you need to remove the debris manually, UNPLUG the shredder first even though it has a safety catch when it sits on its bin.

How do I unjam it?


Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

My Executive Machines EPS 1200X shredder works in reverse, but does not shred.


there should be a forward/ reverse switch that is used to unjam paper being shredded. check that
if it is automatic then check for paper stuck in the shredder causing the reverse action.

My royal paper shredder is jammed. How do I unjam the shredder?


Normally try to run it in reverse while pulling the paper back out to assist the motor. If it won't even run in reverse then you will have to take it apart to manually clear the jam.

My shredder is jamed.


Take the shredder off of its bin, turn upside down, make sure it is unplugged, and pull any pieces of shredded paper out of the shredder teeth, If the reverse mode did not unjam it then you might try opening it, by the inside of the shredder, and unjamming it that way, may I add that there is a sticker covering one of the screw holes that will say "if removed warranty is not good anymore".

Shredder jammed


For any jammed shredder..try the following.. pull backwards on the paper while you switch the machine into reverse. Try not to tear the paper as if there is nothing to hold onto then you can't help the motor.
If this dosn't work then you will have to take the top cover off(after unplugging of course.) and the try to force the paper backwards out of the machine by turnings the cutting blades or gears in the reverse direction.

Jammed shredder


First UNPLUG THE MACHINE.
Unscrew four (4) screws, two in front underneath top cover and two in back of top cover. BE careful not to disconnect any wires.
Rotate motor gear or belt in reverse to remove jam. Do not put oil on paper because it expands the paper thickness and only makes it worse.
