Make sure the power cord is all the way in.
There could be a blown fuse. It is hard to trouble shoot when there is not power to any system.

let me know

good luck

I have a Staples SPL1506X shredder. the power light is on (auto), but when I put paper in, all I hear is a "click" but the shredder doesn't work. There is no apparent jam, and machine is empty. It wo


If you can run the shredder in reverse for a minute to clear any jams that may not be visable. If that don't work it may be a bad relay. More than likely that is why you hear a click.

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.

No power. Seems to be overloaded


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

My office max OM01287 Shredder has no power to it is there a rest button it worked just fine the last time I used it and now there's no power?


Double check the safety that stops the shredder when it is full sometimes that switch gets jammed with cut paper. Also make sure the top of the shredder is level and properly seated back on the base unit. The shredder feed area may also need to be cleared there may be a staple or just paper jammed into this area as well, make sure the unit is unplugged before trying to inspect and clear and part of the shredder

My fellowes paper shredder is not operating. we have lifted the shredder head and fitted it back on the basket but nothing happened


Hi,
Instructions
Step 1 Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.
Step 2 Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.
Step 3 Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.
Step 4 Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.
Step 5 Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.
Good Luck!

Put too much paper in shredder- it jammed. I reversed the paper flow. Unit turned off. I've cleared the paper jam, but unit won't power up.


Sounds like the waste basket is not pushed all the way in. Your basket will have a piece of plastic (not in the middle, this is just a guide) probably on the right hand edge of the basket. This little piece of plastic pushes in on the safety switch. Take a flash light and look closely and you will see how this works. Take a Q-Tip and push in on this switch and see if it will power up.

I have the Infoguard SX-100M Axeus, sold by Staples.
Only the reverse was working, UNPLUG and open back cover, the paper mechanical switch was working fine, the gears and fuse was ok, I think something on the circuit board was fried.
I switched the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when I switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred. Its working now, only in reverse.
