I INSERTED A THICK OBJECT INTO MY FELLOWES SHREDDER. SOME WAS SHREDDED-HOWEVER MOST OF IT IS STUCK IN THE TEETH OF THE SHREDDER. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING-BUT NOTHING WORKS. HELP1


I did that in my shredder and had to use the backwards option for a long time...forwards then backwards and pulling out the material little by little. It is a slow process...you can sometimes pry it a little but make sure you don't insert anything while shredder is operating. I always unplugged mine when trying to tug the stuck paper out of it. You don't want to take any chances. Good luck!

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

My Royal VF880 shredder is not working. It is not shredding anymore and makes a very loud racket when you try to use it.


Likely-hood is that you have taken the teeth out of a plastic drive gear inside...suggest you open it up to see what is broken then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

I have a NoviTech shredder that is several years old and has been used a lot. It is starting to stop shredding during a feed of paper. Do they eventually wear out? Is it time to buy a new one? I have tried...


Yes they do wear out. I had one wear out last year. There are plastic and metal gears that willwear as well as a motor that eventually breaks down.

OM01288 zerojam shredder continuously runs when power (auto) is on but stopps and goes into reverse when paper is inserted.


There are two phototransistors and LED pairs in the CD and paper paths. They detect paper and turn on the motor. Clean these sensor/LEDs. If cleaning the sensor/LEDs does not fix the problem, then you might need to replace them. Do not work on the circuitry while the shredder is plugged in. It is NOT isolated from the power line.

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?


Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Yes a plastic gear broke off that turns all to make it works i need this part but i don't know where to get it it is under warranty but the company never calls me back their number is 1800-639-3803...


Larry,
OK sorry I won't be able to help..I am only familiar with "Royal" and "Elcoman" shredders and those are the only places I can guide people to access parts....your tech solutions will no doubt be different gear sizes etc, etc. Sorry.

Shredder is making a noise, but is not shredding when I put paper in.


Look into the machine as you try and shredding a single sheet of paper. Are the cutters rotating? If not then it could be that your machine has a damaged drive gear. The motor will still spin but will not have gear teeth to engage. It's time to call a tech in.
If they are turning, you may have something blocking the paper path.
