Question about Staples Office Equipment & Supplies
The shredder has been jamming rather frequently until it jammed and stopped. Paper is cleared. I don't have a manual. A red icon is on saying insert bin. The shredder is seated on the collection bin if that is the bin in question. There is no odor of burn failure and everything turns accordingly as I manually turn the motor. Your thoughts?

Well, despite the manufacters warning label I choose to take the shredder apart and found that one of the plastic gears was broken. Hence the motor runs, but the blades do not turn. The thing I didn't understand, the there are metal gears and plasic gears...I can only imagine that the plastic gears at one point or another are going to give. I would suggest not to void the manufacters warrenty, take the shredder back, and get one that is built a little stronger. Hope that helps.

there are what is called strippers that ride in between the teeth to keep paper from building up. they are plastic and can break after awhile. sounds like you have some of the stripper combs broken.

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

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.
