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.

Shredder works in reverse,but not forward.


It's most likely a jam or a blocked sensor. With the shredder unplugged, try removing all small pieces of paper with a pair of tweezers or tiny flathead screwdriver. Also, try spraying the shredder with a can of compressed air to blow out any small pieces of paper or dirt that could be blocking the sensor.

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?


Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Where do you put the oil in the Fellowes C-420Cx shredding machine ? thank you


The **** where you put the paper in is where you can pour some shredder oil onto the cutting blades....once done, just occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper you are going to shred.

My mailmate shredder from Staples has jammed and I can't figure out how to unjam it.


unfortunately you will have to do it by hand!!!!!!!!

unplug, get a flat head screwdriver, take off top and turn upside down. you will see a lot of sredded paper where the teeth are, you need to clear all of that.
it may also be that you have a stale or something of that nature blocking the teeth.
Also do a reverse, I did one over the weekend and had to do it several times while cleaning it out, very messy so make sure you do it somewhere that you can easily clean up, also don't forget you are supposed to use a special lube paper once in a while. (Office Depot,/Max/Staples
