Hi,

I have the same shredder with a different problem. Maybe we can help each other.

It sounds like you have paper jammed in the shredding mechanism. I've cleaned paper jams out of mine quite a few times. The first and most important step is to make sure the shredder is unplugged. Hold the unit up to look through the shredding slot. Some of the openings between the opposing shredding wheels will be filled with paper. Using a small screwdriver (narrow blade at least 3 inches long) you can gently push the paper through. It works best if you can us a pair of needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper out the other side. It takes patience, but it works. Good Luck.

My problem is that after I opened mine up, I turned it over to shake out shreds of paper. When I did this, the entire works fell out of the case and all of the wires disconnected from the 3-way switch. Can you look in yours and describe how the wires are connected to the 8 contacts on the switch. (a digital photograph would be GREAT!

I hope we can help each other.

Makes grinding noise and does not pull the paper in or shred. I have pulled out all bits of paper stuck between the teeth. I'm afraid this thing is toast


This type of shredder can get clogged so badly, the material has to be removed with a utility knife. This is especially true if someone has tried to shred coated stock or, worse yet, credit cards. The noise you are hearing is the mechanism bouncing over clumps of residue jammed in-between the grinding "teeth".

Jammed paper shredder motor stopped won't start


Had this sort of thing happen to me also; sort of. Did you check to see if the shredded paper level alarm has been triggered in the pull-out catch area? Sometimes it forms a pile that trips the alarm before the catch is full. Sounds simple, but check it out. Also check to make sure it's plugged in! I've done that several times, even to the point of calling for help! Did you know the technical help desk always asks if the machine is plugged in first!

Constantly runs when on auto and won't accept paper


Shut off power and turn the shredder upside down. It is highly likely you will find shredded paper jammed in the mechanism, especially near the center where the feed sensor is located. A thorough cleaning should get your shredder operating again

1980 Suzuki Gs450L won't start. I stalled out pretty bad in 4th gear and it won't start back up after. Bike won't even crank over, just makes a clicking noise. Any ideas?


pull the plugs then crank motor you may find one cylinder full of gas and that will keep it from cranking, if it cranks without the plugs allow it to dry for a bit , make sure plugs are dry then install and hopefully GO!

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred


Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.


Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.

Shredding no more


if the unit is pulling paper thru but not shredding your cutters have separated for some reason. If not pulling paper thru but machine is running you probally have a broken gear causing cutters to no longer turn you may hear a clunking or grinding noise or gear may be stripped if shredder sounds like it is spinning freely. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.
