I have the Fellowes shredder oil. The bottle has ABSOLUTELY NO instructions on how to use it.
I used to drizzle oil in on the cutting blades through the feed slot on top, grumbling all the while because it was so messy.
Then I got this tip: Once a week squirt oil on sheet of paper that will be shredded. Do 3 or 4 sheets.
Or do it each time the machines stops for its cool-down period.
I run the oily shreds into a separate bag because I recycle my shredded paper and want to keep it clean.

Oil periodically using special shredder oil. It goes on the paper as you shred it. Dont overload the shredder. Empty regularly. Dont wait for it to shut off due to being full. Check your owners manual for other particulars for this make and model.

How do I lubricate my NoviTech shredder?


If you prefer the convenience and don't mind the extra cost, you can buy shredder lubricant sheets at an office supply store and follow the directions on the package.

Or for a far less expensive method, buy a bottle of generic mineral oil (or baby oil) in the drug store. Spread 1/2 tsp of the oil onto a piece of letter size scrap paper, and run the oiled paper through the shredder. Then run the shredder in reverse for a few seconds and in forward for a few more seconds to spread the oil over the shredding cylinders. That's it.

NoviTech Paper Shredder PS-045/B stops working after a while.


I have workrd on shredders for 17 years. you need to spray a light wait oil in to the paper shut. It is a catch 22 paper dust & paper builds up in them and the covers need to come off and be cleaned out or gears start stripping or braking.
good luck

Novitech shredder


After clearing the jam (with the unit unplugged!), let the unit cool completely, then try using it again. A notice on the nameplate inside my unit says: "2 min on/4 min off." Apparently, a thermal cutoff keeps it from overheating by automatically preventing continued operation that might otherwise melt the parts. So heed the directions. I had the same problem with my NoviTech Model PS-026/B2 crosscut shredder (max: 5 sheets, 1 credit card). Also, make sure the motor mechanism is seated square and flush on the bin. I tried testing it out of the bin, and the green ready light wouldn't come on -- for a good reason: safety. (I still have all of my fingers, thanks to that!) Hope this helps.
