Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Staples Shredder SPL-TXC22A always has the jam light lit and will not work even though there is nothing jammed. It works if I press and hold the down button twice. It also works continuously if I turn off the main switch, hold the main switch, hold the down butoon and turn on the main switch. How do I get the Jam sensor and light to turn off so the shredder works correctly?

Home office shredders get jammed because the mechanism is not self cleaning. If you remove power and expose the mechanism you may find that, indeed, a shard of paper is triggering the jam sensor. These shredders require periodic removal of the bits of paper from the mechanism, an exercise that can consume hours of picking with tweezers while thinking there must be a better way.

    This is the exact problem I am having, but I'm having trouble figuring how to take the unit apart. I can get the head off the base, but don't see how to expose the sensors.

SOURCE: staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool

Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

I have a Staples Shredder model SPL-TXC6A (serial 0809026807), which I have been using a lot lately. The auto and reverse buttons will not function, & neither will the forward button.


If you have used it a lot, it may have tripped the thermal fuse. Normally, these reset themselves. One thing to make sure of,, is that the safety switch under the machine is firmly on the pin in the basket under it.

This is a light duty shredder, you can only use it for two minutes!

6-sheet, light-duty, up to 25 uses/day
Runs 2 min on / 4 min off

Staples TXC22A. Why does Jam Light prevent shredding?


Your meticulous cleaning may have overlooked embedded residue from coated paper or paper laminated with plastic. It may be necessary to use a sharp pick and even a utility knife to remove the material bit by bit.

My Staples Shredder, model # SPL-S302D will stop shredding in the middle of a job or immediately after starting to shred. It is a strip-cut style shredder, I use lubricating sheets once in a while on it,...


You can clean the sensor with a alcohol and be sure there is no jam occur. If it doing fine then it's work and there's no more problem. Always clean it, a jam can cause motor to heat up and it's winding will be burnt.
I hope my advice help you.
