Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder

1 Answer

Fellowes DM8C shredder

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?

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.

Why paper won't feed when shredder turns?

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

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred

Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

Paper gets jammed. Even shredding just one sheeet of paper. Clicking noise is heard before the red light comes on.

The problem was solved by putting some oil on the top of the shredder and running the motor forward and in reverse to coat the teeth. Thank you.

I have a DM8C that only runs for a couple of seconds at a time and then it stops. Toggle the switch back and forth and it feeds a little at a time until the page is completely shredded. It works okay in...

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.

Green and middle red light go on but motor does not. does not shred

Check the sensors on top and bottom of cutters. Clean with cotton swabs and compressed air. If this does not help, bad sensors or main board.

Where is the place where I oil my dhmc shredder?

I assume you are oiling the cutters if this is the case just run the oil into the throat where the paper to be shredded goes.
