  • Cross cut shredders require more frequent oiling versus the straight strip shredders. The more paper and use it gets the more oil it requires. A good rule of thumb is to oil the machine each time you change the bag.
  • Use only shredder oil designed for the specific brand of paper shredder you have. Manufacturers design paper shredder oils to be heat tolerant for the cylinders and blades, and they calibrate them specifically for their machines.
  • Spray, squirt or run a bead of oil across the blade opening. It shouldn't take more than a second or two to reach from one end to the other. Any more than that may result in too much oil applied. Quicker than that means there isn't enough oil to adequately lubricate the machine.
  • Turn the paper shredder to "Manual" and run the gears in reverse for a few seconds, then turn the shredder on "Forward" or "Standard" mode. This ensures that you distribute the oil throughout the machine, and going in reverse first forces some of the dripping oil back up, and then the forward moving blades push it back through the gears.
  • Oil a sheet of paper rather than the machine. Don't just run a bead of oil across the bottom of the sheet because the paper soaks up the oil and the oil may not reach all of the necessary parts. Instead, spray the whole sheet, or run a zigzag line across the paper and immediately send it through the shredder tooil it.

    you could get a new charger,or maybe the light is broken,or there might be something in the ds blocking the light making it so it won't light up.

    I would like to know how to oil an Wilson-Jones 1250 schredder.


    Wow, a name from the past.... with any shredder the easiest way to "oil it" is just to put a bead of oil in an "S" pattern down a sheet of paper to be shredded and then shred the sheet of paper.
    If you shred a lot you should do this more frequently...if its only occassional shredding OR if its a strip cut shredder then you don't have to do this as often.

    Got an email from people calling themselves the us embassy telling me that i have won a green card but i had not applied.Could they be conmen?


    There are NEVER any prizes given away for free, especially green cards from the US embassy. There are many scams via e-mail. Do not click on any links as they may lead to virus or other malware. Just delete the message.

    Royal AG15X schredder stopped working after I tried schredding some stupid charity solicitation that apparently had a coin inside the envelope!! I'm think a fuse might have popped or something; I've taken...


    I am wondering if you have something that is jammed. Is there any way you can get into the unit to turn the cutters manually? If so try to turn them backwards first and see what happens. Good luck. Unplug it to do this.

    How to fix a stuck shredder


    Go to your local hardware store, and pick up a quart of 3 in 1 oil, shredder oil or some other light weight oil. (With the shredder in the off position or unplugged). Use a couple of ounces and Pour the oil over the paper that is jammed in the shredder. Use enough oil so it saturated the jammed paper. Wait about 10 - 15 minutes so the oil really soaks into the paper. Don't go crazy with the oil, and keep in mind what goes in, must come out. If you pour too much oil in the shredder, the exess oil will drip out. Don't worry about having oil in the shredder blade, this will help lubricated the teeth, and it will actually make your shredder blades last longer.

    Now try to turn your shredder on after the oil has soaked into the paper for 10-15 minutes. Hopefully, the paper that is stuck has gotten softer, and then it should pass the paper. If it still doesnt work, then, try some more oil on the paper, and then wait and then turn the shredder to the forward, and then reverse mode, and then back and forth.

    Hopefully your shredder will be unclogged by this time.
    Hope this helps.
    Good luck.
