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

Someone loaded regular staples into our Swingline 45 Optima now it will not work when loaded with the correct staples.


Using the wrong or style ofstaples, overfilling the machine and stapling through too-thick materials can causeOptima to jam. Now follow these steps: 1. Holdthe base down as you lift the top of the Optima stapler to access the stapletray. 2. Removeall the staples from the tray so that you have access to the jammed staple. 3. Turnthe stapler upside down and shake it to clear out staples you can't reach withyour fingers. 4. Gripthe jammed staple with the needle-nose pliers and, while holding the staplersecurely, pull it up. 5. Twistthe staple until it breaks into two pieces if it will not pull straight out.Pull out the two individual pieces. The Optima stapler line bySwingline is designed to be jam-free when Optima premium jam-free staples areused. Using another , style or brand may cause frequent jamming. Hope thiswill help you. Good Luck.

An office dummy put regular staples in the Swingline 660HD stapler which is now jammed. I can't figure out how to open the stapler to get access to the staple tray. I can't pull them out with a large...


There's a rectangular opening at the front end of the stapler. You can insert a rod that fits in the opening, and push the staples back out if they're not hopelessly jammed in-place.

I HAVE A SWINGLINE STAPLER AND IT JUST STOPED WORKING CAN YOU HELP ME TO FIX IT THANKS


When a stapler stops working it is because it has jammed.Try to open it by pulling on the silver bottom part while holding the top black part there is a release on the bottom.Press the release at the back and unload staples.You should see jammed staple in feed,clear it them.Reload with new **** of staples.It should now function.Use a pin or paper clip to clear pull out jammed staples.

Papper jam


Try adding a lube, such a WD40, it may reduce the friction enough to break free. Spray it above and below and as needed during the operation.
Work the jam back and forth, removing what you can as it pops out, power off the machine before reaching into the blades.

Hope this helps

I put too much paper in the shredder. How do I unjam it?


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.
