Most shredders have a security feature that will not let it run unless it is seated on the basket properly.
Check to make sure it is seated properly and try again. If it will not run in forward try reverse.

SOURCE: Shredder motor seems jammed

The teeth on the plastic gear that turns the massive metal gears that turn the shredder teeth is probably stripped and needs to be replaced, if you can find the part.

Doc jammed in shredder what do i do


Most shredders have a reverse feature to back out papers that are jammed when too many were fed in at one. If that is not available or fails to work, then you must simply unplug the shredder and manually rip the document(s) out of the shredder as best you can until you free the jam.

Shredder is jammed. Won't work.


If the shredder has power, the sheet detector may be blocked by a scrap of paper. Also, cross cut shredders that are an integral unit are best cleaned by turning them upside down to get access to the mechanism. Finally, if the motor became very hot an internal thermal fuse may have opened in which case the shredder will have to be replaced.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

My son put a 25 page document in this shredder and bound her up better than any shredder jam I've EVER seen. What's the best way to clear this mess when the shredder can't overpower the jam? I'll pull...


There are various ways to clear the mess if you have patience and the time to work the jam. 1. Unplug the shredder and use a flat-head screw driver to dig as much out as you can, then plug it back in and flip the switch from forward to reverse a few times and then keep repeating the process until jam is cleared. 2. Use tweezers to remove paper from critical connection teeth and the try it again.

Our Aurora AS1712X paper shredder is jammed in a couple of places with paper so badly that we cannot free the jam and the tooth wheels cannot turn freely. Is there an easy way to clear the jam?


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

I have an Omnitech OT-535BL paper shredder. It got a jam, I cleaned the paper out but it still wont work. It sounds like it is turning on when I plug it back in but it wont go.


This unit can also overheat and automatically shuts down when it does; to be thorough--simply unplug, empty the wastebasket, turn upside down, remove any remaining paper from blades, plug back in, and leave it alone for 30-60 minutes. Try again.

It's not an industrial shredder and has a low daily capacity, designed only for small office use.

must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.
