paper will not feed through, shredder will run backwards

You can often fix a jam in a paper shredder by yourself, but it all depends on how bad the jam is. The first option is to put the paper shredder in reverse and see if that fixes the problem. If that doesn't work, unplug the shredder and remove the shredder head. See if you can remove the jammed paper from under the shredder head. Be careful as the shredder blades may be sharp. If this still doesn't work, try softening up the paper with some shredder oil. When the paper gets soft, from the oil, it will often work itself free. If the shredder isn't working at all, you may have simply blown a fuse. Most modern paper shredders have fuses. Try replacing the fuse and see if this helps. If none of these suggestions work, you may have to contact a service technician. ABC Office has a technician that would at least let you know what's involved to repair a serious paper jam. If the cost of fixing the paper shredder is too much, you may just have to replace the shredder. Good luck!

Use an industrial shredder. They never need to be repaired or replaced and the paper gets recycled.

There are a couple of ways that you can oil a paper shredder. The easiest way is to put shredder oil on a sheet of paper and run it through the shredder. Run it forward. After the paper has made it all the way through, run it backwards. This will ensure all the shredder blades get coated. I recommend oiling your shredder after every time you empty it. If you have visible access to the shredder's blades, you can squirt oil directly into the blades and run the shredder in reverse for about 15-30 seconds. Be sure to go from the far left to the far right, covering everything.

A paper shredder can be purchased at a number of locations in Toronto. These include Walmart and Best Buy. While a paper shredder at Walmart may be cheaper, the one at Best Buy will likely be of higher quality.

The Staples model SPL-826X paper shredder replacement parts are available through the manufacturer of the shredder. Depending on what needs to be replaced, Staples will replace the shredder if it is still under warranty and if it is a mechanical issue.

A basic paper shredder can be bought for a relatively low price and therefore it depends on the make and model of the existing paper shredder to determine whether it would be more cost effective to replace rather than repair.

Not all paper shredders shred plastic cards as the plastic might damage the shredder (if the shredder is poorly made). They can all, obviously, shred paper and paper documents.

The paper clip inventor is John Vaaler

Shredded paper is/can be recycled to make paper. Most of the shredded paper is baled and shipped to paper recycling plant.

A couple of seconds, if not a little more.

Yes, but it's much better if you run them through the paper shredder first.

The inventor of paper.

Its probably the motor or the sensor does not work

Johan Vaaler patented the paper clip in 1899 and 1901. He was an inventor and patent clerk in Kristiania, Norway.

The main privacy advantage of using a paper shredder is to prevent identity theft. Fraudsters will sometimes go through one's trash looking for documents with names and numbers on. By shredding this is not possible.

UNPLUG IT FIRST. You need a tweezer, a paper clip straightened out as much as possible, a flashlight. Use the straightened paper clip to fish out the paper, pulling the paper out by wiggling it rather than pulling. Sometimes pull against the shredder to the front of you instead of towards you. It takes time and patience but is a lot cheaper than buying a new one.

The same thing a shredder would do to a sheet of paper.
