My shredder just stopped working @ end of a sheet. How do I clear it?

It has probably cut out on overheat. Crazily, you are supposed to use them for 3 minutes and leave them for 30.

It should work again in about 15 minutes.

If it comes back with an error, put it in reverse.

My child put a magazine through the shredder and it quite working when it got jammed. Is there a reset button?

First - exactly what manufacturer and model are you having problems with? More precise information helps to solve problems quicker.

Remove the magazine. Unplug the shredder and then plug in and try manual controls to see if it works. If not, check the manual if you have it, or wait until we can find an answer for you. You can try lifting up the lid to try and locate a reset button if your unit has one.

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?

That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

Compucessory CCS 60062 shredder overheated

These units take about 24 hours to recover... unplug unit and let it sit for 24 hours...the unit will reset once plugged back in after.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?

If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

The shredder overheats. The most we can shred are

Have you put any shredder oil or a shredder oil sheet through the machine.

Shredders need oiling to keep the cutters free

Free cutters mean clean cuts and less friction
