    Same thing: paper jammed, removed and cleared the jam, and now the motor runs, but the blades don't turn. Either on or in reverse, either way.

    ?

    Thanks,

    My SPL-1506X shredder was making motor noise but the blades wouldn't turn. I disassembled the head and found that the smaller of the two nylon gears is severely stripped. I've been going crazy trying to find a place to buy a replacement gear. It's easy enough to fix, I just can't find it.

    I have the same problem with that staples shredder. I called Staples products department. They told me they could not sell me the plastic gears because it was a "liability issue." I really think that they purposely put the plastic gear up against the metal gears so that you would have to either buy their "warranty" or purchase a new shredder every couple of years. I'm going to see if I can get a new metal gear machined.

Well, despite the manufacters warning label I choose to take the shredder apart and found that one of the plastic gears was broken. Hence the motor runs, but the blades do not turn. The thing I didn't understand, the there are metal gears and plasic gears...I can only imagine that the plastic gears at one point or another are going to give. I would suggest not to void the manufacters warrenty, take the shredder back, and get one that is built a little stronger. Hope that helps.

Staples Shredder SPL-TXC22A always has the jam light lit and will not work even though there is nothing jammed. It works if I press and hold the down button twice. It also works continuously if I turn off...


Home office shredders get jammed because the mechanism is not self cleaning. If you remove power and expose the mechanism you may find that, indeed, a shard of paper is triggering the jam sensor. These shredders require periodic removal of the bits of paper from the mechanism, an exercise that can consume hours of picking with tweezers while thinking there must be a better way.

Spl-1506x shredder only runs in reverse


Daniel:

Unplug the shredder... Take the top off and turn it upside down. Use a screwdriver to take the lower cowling off and look at the motor. If the mounting area where the motor sits looks melted at all, the machine is toast. If the motor mounting area looks good, look at the slot where the paper is inserted... there should be a sensor (that "sees" the paper when you insert it) at the paper slot. Check to see that the sensor isn't damaged.

Staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool


Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

The blades are stuck in reverse


I have the exact same problem. In fact, my SPL-1506X is sitting disassembled on the kitchen table as I write this. There is a PC Board inside the unit with a relay that directs the motor to run in forward or reverse. My relay is fused in the reverse position. I know this because the relay's casing is clear polycarbonate. If that relay can be replaced, the SPL-1506X will be fixed, I'm convinced. Unfortunately, the relay is made in China. So much for quality! I located the part no. on the web: Sanyou SME-2110DP a DPDT relay. If you can find it(which I can't), you're in luck. Myself, I'm going to trash the unit.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.
