These Staples shredders are not serviced with replacement parts, so you will need to replace it.

probably find that some cutters have been damaged and are hitting each other rather than sliding past each other
using wd 40 is lubricating those cutters but as the lubricant is used by the new paper it becomes inefficient
get a quote for repairs but generally ( unless the machine cost is in the 4 figure area) it is not cost effective to repair

They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

To find percentages on this calculator, or any calculator, you divide one number by the other, and multiply the result by 100.

For example, for 2 out of 5, we type in 2, hit the divide button, type in 5 and hit the equals sign and we will get 0.4. To make this into percentage, we then multiply the answer by 100 to get 40%.

Good luck,

Fixya is not a buying service. Ask Staples.

I am not able to locate anything for that model.

There is an optical sensor that needs to be cleaned. It is usually at the middle of the slot where you put paper to be shredded. Use canned air to blow out both holes (one on each side of the slot).
Hope this helps.
