Can I run goo gone through my paper shredder to clean stickiness without dismantling it?

I've run address labels through it and the sticky gunk just builds up; it doesn't stop it from working. Can I pour goo gone through it just like shredder oil? Fellowes customer support is of no help.

Yes you can, you can also spray it with WD40, leave it an hour, spray it again and run a few sheets of plain paper through it. WD40 is kerosene based.

    Thank you, I tried WD 40 sprayed on the blades and used an old toothbrush to remove the gunk on the outside. Your answer is very helpful.

    @john h. I checked a few and some did have useful links, but Google Link+ Page Link attached is very cumbersome. I'll have to go through and check them and do some deleting.

Yes you can but wd40 is so much better. While the shredder is running, spray wd40 directly on blades. It would be best to remove the straw and spray out of nozzle.

My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode

UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.

If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.

If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.

Need to clean the platen

IF you can't get the platen roller out, then what you can do is get a cleaner called " GOO GONE". Take a rag or paper towel, and pour some of the goo gone on the rag where the labels are located. IMPORTANT PART: You want enough Goo Gone on the rag so you can saturate the label. I have even CAREFULLY poured some Goo Gone right from the container onto the label.
Just don't go crazy with the Goo Gone.... You do not want to pour sooooo much onto the platen roller where it drips down it the frame of the machine and possibly onto the main board.
REMEMBER.... Just enough to saturate the label.

After the label is saturated.... WAIT AT LEAST 3 minutes. I usually wait closer to 5 minutes, and then you will notice that the label can be easily pulled away from the platen.
After all of the labels are removed, go over the entire platen with the Rag with Goo gone, and then go over it again with a clean dry rag.

I hope this works for you as well as it has worked for my customers.
Good luck.
Mac =)

My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode

Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.

Sticky Shredder

The blades will have to be cleaned of the adhesive residue. A stiff bristled paint brush, toothbrush or brush that can get around and on the blades should work. Make shure that you disconnect the shedder from power prior to doing any kind of cleaning. You will need some kind of adhesive removal spray. I use WD-40 or Goo Gone (both fairly common and cheap) to remove the adhesives. There are a number of other products available (some more expensive than others and all claim to work best)and then there are some you wouldn't expect(like vinegar.) Be sparing in your application of remover and try to apply the cleaner only to the brush. The object is to clean the blades and try not to get clean all in and on the shredder. You should either try Q tips or some other absorbent swab to dry and remove as much liquid cleaner as you can. Hope this helps
