Question about Office Shredders
I accidently put a small stack of 5 pieces of paper with just my address torn from junk mail into a Bosser Paper Shredder. It was on auto and the thickness and slick paper jammed the shredder, so it stopped turning and the motor stopped. I removed all of the pieces of paper and now the motor runs, but not the blades. They do not turn in auto, forward or reverse. Any ideas on repairing this problem? Thank YOU!!
Yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

The gear inside the shredder must be broken. This is the wheel that connects the motor to the blades. its much cheaper to buy a new one that try to repair this.
