Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, there is little else that can go wrong on a shredder except the motor.

My omni tech 12 sheet cross shredder stopped working and now does not work and has no light on. checked the power source and is ok. Checked for jams and can see nothing. Any suggestions?

Most newer shredders have a built-in safety feature that, when they overheat from prolonged use, will shut down for 20 - 30 minutes. After this time period, the shredder will function again.

This drives me nuts when I have to shred a lot of stuff - I get tired of waiting for the thing to cool back down, so I put it in the freezer to speed it up!

Good luck.

Clogged shredder blades

Please don't put your fingers near the shredder blades or put any foreign object near the shredder blades when operating the machine.

Most machines will allow you to reverse the shredder blades and it will clear the clog.

If this doesn't work, I turn the machine off and unplug it. Then I use tweezers to pull the paper out.

Good luck.

Any suggestions about Jambuster problems in a Fellowes DM-1200ct?

I think you think you are writing to Fellowes, but you aren't. You are posting to a self help website only. Your letter is good, so send it to them. The contact details are in the link. This is the sort of service we provide at Fixya.

My other suggestion was that 'are you using cutter oil', but you are.

Shredder stuck, no power light, but power strip works

shredders do not have a long life time and are finicky. You have to pull all the paper out of the shredder to unjam it. I have trashed several. Be careful to not exceed the page limit as to how many pages it can shred. This is the primary cause of jamming. Also, using some light weight oil (3 in 1, for example) should be part of routine maintenance. good luck darlin

Shredder does not work

Hello there. I'm sorry to hear about your shredder I'm sure there is something we can do. The first thing we need to do is check to see that it even turns on. If there is a light that turns on while plugged in then we know that it is properly turning on. If the light is off then it must be an electrical problem, either with your socket or your shredder. I recommend trying a different socket.
If it turns on correctly you might want to see that the blades aren't stuck with paper. TURN OFF the shredder and try and move the blades with a screwdriver or a flat head. You can also see the paper in some printers. If you cannot see the blades then we can take an alternative.
You can find shredder oil in any office supply retail store. You put some oil on the blades and it lubricates them, and at the same time eats away the paper that is stuck. Most times this is the problem. If you can't go to the store you can use a little bit of cooking oil. That will do the trick as well.
If none of these methods work than it must be an electrical problem in the shredder. Hopefully not however.
Good luck

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

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!

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on

took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Shredder will not

You have done all the right troubleshooting.

I would say the circuit board is toast.

Paper got stuck. machine will not turn on.

First, check that the machine is properly seated on the waste container. There is a switch that prevents the shredder's operating if it isn't properly seated. Will your "ready" indicator light up? If the machine will not turn on at all, try something else in the outlet the shredder is plugged into. If there is no power to the outlet, you probably tripped the breaker. Reset it and proceed as follows. Turn your switch to "off". Unplug the shredder and flip the shredding head upside-down on a stable surface. Remove anything that was previously hanging down. Gently remove stuck stuff, keeping your hands in a safe position. Place the shredder head back on the waste container and plug it in. Most all shredders have a reverse on them for just this occasion. Work the machine reverse and forward, until it releases. When in reverse, remove whatever the shredder gives up, with the switch set to off, of course. This should get you back in the shredding business. Next time you're at one of the office supply stores, get some shredder lubricator sheets. Using these from time-to-time lessen the incidence of jams.
Enjoy! --W/D
