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.

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.

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.

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

Unjamed, but jammed light remains on and won't shred


Most likely the PC board has gone bad. It will cost over 100.00 from fellowes.

Remove as much of the jam as possible then saturate any paper left with shredder oil or you may use any liquid vegetable based cooking oil from your kitchen. After letting paper soak for at least 7hours you should be able to power through the jam. If not call Fellowes customer service at 1-800-945-4545
