FAQs document shredder

The PaperControl (optional) display lights up.

Green: The paper stack can be shredded.
Yellow: The paper volume is in the upper performance range of the machine. Reduce the number of sheets to preserve the machine and prevent a paper jam.
Red: The number of sheets is more than the maximum cutting capacity of the machine. Prevent blocking the cutting unit by reducing the amount of paper.

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 (with particle cut), a noise develops and after emptying the paper container. Inject the special oil over the entire width of the feed slot onto the cutting rollers. 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.

A paper jam occurred during shredding. The display element "Cutting unit blocked" lights up.

If a paper jam occurred, the cutting unit reverses for a few seconds and pushes the paper out. If necessary, the paper can be reversed by pressing the "R" key. 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.

The document shredder only runs backwards and not forwards.
The paper shredder does not draw in any paper even though the engine is running (also: The engine "rattles").

First, check if the feeding slot above the cutting unit is clogged. The fault is remedied when the paper is removed. However, if the fault is accompanied by an unusual noise, broken gear wheels could be the cause. If there are no unusual noises, the cutting rollers might be worn. Please contact us in both cases. Please contact our customer service.
