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.

I INSERTED A THICK OBJECT INTO MY FELLOWES SHREDDER. SOME WAS SHREDDED-HOWEVER MOST OF IT IS STUCK IN THE TEETH OF THE SHREDDER. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING-BUT NOTHING WORKS. HELP1


I did that in my shredder and had to use the backwards option for a long time...forwards then backwards and pulling out the material little by little. It is a slow process...you can sometimes pry it a little but make sure you don't insert anything while shredder is operating. I always unplugged mine when trying to tug the stuck paper out of it. You don't want to take any chances. Good luck!

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.

My shredder does not shred in forward mode only reverse mode. how can I fix it?


Gene,

You would need to replace the motor in this, what type of shredder we talking here?

There is a lever that engages FW and reverse many times people jam these things and the lever also becomes effected. I would need the make and model and further details but it sounds to me its going to need a fix-in or a new shredder. I hope its not one of those heavy duty shredders because your looking on spending some cash there then.

Best of Luck

update me with make and model asap

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.

A hair pin was put through our shredder by mistake and it became jammed. We cleared out the shredder and removed the hairpin however now the shredder does not operate. It will operate in reverse if you...


Yes small shredders don't like to shred metal.
You have probably blown the pcb inside the machine...would need to know make and model to provide further access for parts.

Champion shredder WQ120D will not shut down after shredding but continues to run . must move to center position to shut down


If you look at the blades, some are likely bent (probably the middle ones) causing the machine to not drop the clippings which makes it think that there's paper to be shredded. It's a common problem with this shredder and there's no fixing it because the company doesn't offer replacement parts. The shredder is an overpriced piece of junk. I bought mine at Walmart but our local store doesn't even carry them anymore because of all of the returns they've had.
