I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

My Staples 16 sheet Microcut shredder starts the shredding operation after I push the button and continues the shredding operation after I shred a paper. How can I get the shredding mechanism to stop...


It's a tedious process to clean it out. Most auto switch shredders use either a tiny little lever or an optical sensor in the paper feed slot. Usually removing the shred head, picking all the paper out and blasting all the dust out with air will clean it up. Then run a few sheets of paper with shredder lubricant (basically clean mineral oil) to oil the blades and it should be good to go again. Just be careful cleaning that cutting head. I've donated many drops of blood to office equipment over the years.

Why does my paper shredder make a clicking sound when I try to shred a piece of paper?


Try putting a piece of paper in enough to start it running, but not so far as to go into the shredder. See if it will run for a minute or two. Sounds as though it may be over heating.

The motor will hum when you put the paper to the blades but it will not shredd because the blades do not turn.


Blades need to be cleaned and oiled Unplug and check to make sure there are no staples or something caught in the gear edge in the corners You should be able to turn it by hand If not the gears inside probably slipped out of place or got busted from somebody trying to shred too much at once

Lubricate with what product


It's amazing how easy it is to lubricate a shredder, at least the blades portion of the shredder. Go to your local Staples store, or else order on line. They sell lubrication sheets for all shredders. I bought a dozen for less than $10 and they work great. You just insert the sheet and shred it. The unit is lubricated. The Staples part number I got was their part number 602400. Good luck..

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

Does not stop after shredding


it could be that a paper or a staple is on the sensor and the machine wil not stop until it will be cleaned
its posible that a staple is on the electronic board and short the circuit

Hope it will help

Shredder won't stop running


You probably need to clean out some debris from the shredder's sensor. The sensor is usually a small switch that is pushed into the "on" position when a piece of paper goes through. If there is some paper sticking this switch "on", then the shredder will not shut off. You can use a small needle nose pliers, or a tweezer to get the debris out. Make sure to unplug the unit before cleaning!

Hoep that helps, good luck!
