UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST…….OKAY!!??
If this shredder is like most nowadays, they have a sensor that detects paper when it’s put into the shredder and a sensor when it exits the unit. Look for a small black squares with another square directly across from it. (<sensors) Make sure nothing is between any of these sensors.(and clean if you have to) (plug in and test again) (then unplug if that didn’t fix it) There is a piece of cut paper that’s stopping the motor’s torque from reversing or feeding the cutting rollers. Sometimes a plastic gear breaks. If they are ….its trash!!…..You will have to take the covers off to see. Eyeball it real good…(put your glasses on if you need to) If no gears are broken, look on the ends of the assembly that holds the two cutting rollers together.
Before we get to far…..check and see if there is a breaker (or fuse that has blown) The book sez it’s a 12 sheet shredder…..The manual should tell you what weight of the paper being shredded . (the maximum weight of the paper) 20lb. bond etc…..If the fuse is blown replace it with the same size..(read the small numbers on the end of the fuse and don’t use anything else!!!....(fire hazard!) If the fuse isn’t blown check and see if the power outlet is good…… If all is good, make sure when you take it apart the two cutting rollers that you put all the screws back in the same place they came out of …(very important) (write down the positions if you have to) When putting the unit back together…don’t over tighten . The plastic molding blocks strip out very easily. Don’t lube anything. Paper fibers will be drawn toward anything lubed……(shortening the life of the unit) Good Luck!!!!! Tell me if this helps!!!!
