    No the bin is empty, I made sure that the shredder is clean so I'm not sure what I can do to make it work?

    No actually the bin is empty and the actual shredder I tend to keep clean from the little shreds of paper.

    I have the same shredder and it has pretty much died. My husband told me that I must have shredded something I wasn't suppose to and burned out the motor, but I saw a couple of online reviews of the product after I had this problem that said that the shredder has done exactly what our has done after 6 months. I'm trying to find a way to return it now.

My Staples 16 sheet Microcut shredder starts the shredding operation after I push the button and continues the shredding operation after I shred a paper. How can I get the shredding mechanism to stop...


It's a tedious process to clean it out. Most auto switch shredders use either a tiny little lever or an optical sensor in the paper feed slot. Usually removing the shred head, picking all the paper out and blasting all the dust out with air will clean it up. Then run a few sheets of paper with shredder lubricant (basically clean mineral oil) to oil the blades and it should be good to go again. Just be careful cleaning that cutting head. I've donated many drops of blood to office equipment over the years.

When i put paper in it to shred it cuts then stops. ihave to physically hold the shred button for it to shred?


sounds like the paper in switch is either worn, or loose. Not much you can do unless you replace the switch. Look in the slot where you would place the paper and see if you see a small lever. If you do, watch it when you place paper in and get the shredder to work.
Does it happen on single sheets or multiple sheets. If just single, try multiple sheets and see if it works better.
good luck

Omnitech shredder ot-nxc10pa


You must first unplug it and look inside the shredding blades, especially around the spot usually near the center, where there is a pressure button. When paper hits it, it starts shredding. Chances are some pieces of paper have jammed just over it stopping paper from hitting it and switching it on. I have had to use long tweezers to work the jammed bits out... Once clear it will work again. Also using shredder oil every 50 sheets through will help it cut easier , and jam less frequently. Do not put too many sheets through together in a bunch. No staples...

Why does my paper shredder make a clicking sound when I try to shred a piece of paper?


Try putting a piece of paper in enough to start it running, but not so far as to go into the shredder. See if it will run for a minute or two. Sounds as though it may be over heating.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

I was shredding and I put 2 sheets in and the shredder jammed.


You don't mention if its x-cut or not......however, try putting some lightweight shredder oil on a sheet of paper and then shred the paper with the oil on it...do this a few times to get oil into the cutting blades then see if that has helped.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Shredder won't stop running


You probably need to clean out some debris from the shredder's sensor. The sensor is usually a small switch that is pushed into the "on" position when a piece of paper goes through. If there is some paper sticking this switch "on", then the shredder will not shut off. You can use a small needle nose pliers, or a tweezer to get the debris out. Make sure to unplug the unit before cleaning!

Hoep that helps, good luck!
