Materials aren't shredded, merely perforated by the blades. Did I overload it, or did it wear out all at once? Can the blades be sharpened? Can you adjust the alignment, are they just not close enough together any more? What can I do?

Re: Fellowes DM8C shredder
What does the owners manusl tell you that the page limit is? Do not exceed it, and maybe just reduce it by one page at a time until you get the proper shred. Can not be sharpened. It would be cheaper to buy a new shredder.

This may seem to simple but.......sometimes when you put too much oil into the blades through the top portion, the paper get drenched with oil and will not feed in. Plz try a few sheets or a thicker paper to push through. It may just be that simple. Good luck.
Plz N' Thnx, Bogie
Common solution is to clean upper and lower sensors with cotton swab. If it still jams, then you will have to remove the top carefully and clean all paper shreds out of the housing. The paper shreds are most likely packed in the housing shroud and jamming or overloading the motor.
