A paper jam occurred during shredding.

If a paper jam occurred, pressing the "R" key can reverse the paper. If this does not remove the paper jam, soften the blockage with plenty of special cutting block oil for about 60 minutes. The paper can then be pressed down using a thin piece of cardboard. Please ensure that you machine is switched on while pressing down so that the engine can provide support in removing the blockage. If the paper jam cannot be removed by the described procedure, please contact our customer service.

I have a different problem with my machine.

The machine does not start when paper is fed in.

Please check that the safety element on the insertion slot is engaged. The machine switches off when pressure is applied to the safety element. Press the safety element downwards until it engages. If the safety element is engaged, please check that the upper part is properly seated on the collecting container. If the machine is overloaded, allow it to cool down for about 30 minutes. The machine should then work again. If the error cannot be solved by the described procedure, please contact our customer service.

The cutting performance of the file shredder is decreasing and an increasing noise is developing.

The cutting unit should be oiled if cutting performance decreases, a sound develops and after emptying the paper container. Inject the special oil over the entire width of the feed slot onto the blade shafts. Then, press the "R" key to reverse the cutting unit until all paper residues are released. The oiling of cutting units with strip cut improves the cutting performance and avoids squeaking noises resulting from jammed paper residues.

The machine is not receiving any electricity.

Please check that the upper part is correctly placed on the collecting container. The switch on the back of the machine must be set to "I". If the machine still does not work, please contact our customer service.

If possible, also clean the light barrier of the CD slot (optional) with compressed air. If the error cannot be rectified by this, please contact our customer service.

As soon as paper is fed in, the device displays the message "Paper jam" (for devices with separate CD cutting unit).

This error indicates that the cutting unit stops immediately when paper or a CD is fed in, because there is already material in the feed slot. Please check if the light barriers are already blocked by material. If this does not rectify the error or if it is not possible to clean the light barrier, please contact our customer service.
