    I took apart the shredder and have full access to the switch. When first depressed the motor runs but only for a quick second and then stops (even though the switch is still depressed). You have to turn the unit off and on again (auto mode) to get it to work again but it's only for the one second, not continous. Any ideas?

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc board, contact manufacturer for more info.

Dynex shredder only works in reverse

If your shredder is jamed with paper, the centre of your machine has a switch which is plastic. If there is paper under this switch it will prevent it from being pushed downward, it will not shred paper, it will only work in reverse. Unplug your machine and clear the paper jam so the little plastic switch will be able to go down and it should work. Hope this works for you.

Why won't my shredder microcut items placed in the credit card/cd/dvd slot? It will only cut the item in half.

You can check with Dynex regarding this issue, but your shredder may only be capable of cutting those items in half.

Staple stuck in shredder

First lesson - NEVER put staples through shredder. Have you been able to remove the staple? Switch all power off, and then look at blade section. If still present - remove staple - may need magnet or tweezers. This should fix the problem, but if it doesn't it seems you may have some teeth out of alignment. This will probably require replacing the shredder bar by a technician, or a new unit.

Shredder doesn't want to shred in forward gear, have to Reverse first then switch it to On/Auto. Have to keep going back & forth between Reverse & On/Auto to get document shredded. Shredder is less...

Shredders became popular when the identity theft thing started happening and to save money they stopped making them with quiet, powerful induction motors and now it's almost impossible to find a consumer model without the poor quality loud motors that don't have enough to power to operate the machine once it's a little dirty. Anyway, unplug it, and you're doing this at your own risk, take the shredder off the trash can or its own waste bin and turn it over. If it's straight cut shredder you will probably be able to see the slot where the shredder paper exits the blade area. If it's a crosscut shredder there might be a door that will close over the blades to cut you from getting cut. Respect that, but open this door, and see if there's bits of paper jammed up around the blades. Wear some protective gloves and use pliers or some kind of tool to dig out the compacted trash, being careful not to damage or bend the blades. Now you should pick up some shredder oil from your local office store, or see link to order. Follow the instructions on the oil, and this will make your shredder run with a lot less stress. This is only a temporary fix however. In a couple weeks or months you will have to do this again. It's all part of owning a paper shredder. If you like it that much, look into buying a nicer model. You totally get what you pay for with a paper shredder.
