I shifted the switch from "reverse" to "auto" until the machine responded and spit out the paper. If it doesn't work the first time unplug it, replug it and try again.

How do I unjam it?


Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

My Executive Machines EPS 1200X shredder works in reverse, but does not shred.


there should be a forward/ reverse switch that is used to unjam paper being shredded. check that
if it is automatic then check for paper stuck in the shredder causing the reverse action.

Shredder bin full


Most models: 1) unplug, 2) put something down to collect paper bits, 3) lift up the shredder top unit off the bin, 4) empty the bin, 5) try and pull out any paper from the shredder top using tweezers - first remove paper that has not fed through by pulling it back out.
Often if the bin is overfull the shredder gets clogged and won't work or beeps. When unplugged, you have to carefully remove all the bits of paper from the teeth to unjam the two rows of teeth. Remedy is to frequently empty the bin.

My shredder is jamed.


Take the shredder off of its bin, turn upside down, make sure it is unplugged, and pull any pieces of shredded paper out of the shredder teeth, If the reverse mode did not unjam it then you might try opening it, by the inside of the shredder, and unjamming it that way, may I add that there is a sticker covering one of the screw holes that will say "if removed warranty is not good anymore".

Shredder jammed


For any jammed shredder..try the following.. pull backwards on the paper while you switch the machine into reverse. Try not to tear the paper as if there is nothing to hold onto then you can't help the motor.
If this dosn't work then you will have to take the top cover off(after unplugging of course.) and the try to force the paper backwards out of the machine by turnings the cutting blades or gears in the reverse direction.

Jammed shredder


First UNPLUG THE MACHINE.
Unscrew four (4) screws, two in front underneath top cover and two in back of top cover. BE careful not to disconnect any wires.
Rotate motor gear or belt in reverse to remove jam. Do not put oil on paper because it expands the paper thickness and only makes it worse.
