Paper shredder not working.


Likely causes:

  1. If the motor hums or makes straining noises then the cutters may be blocked/ jammed. Clear the blockage.
  2. If the motor makes ‘happy motor running’ noises but the cutters don’t move then one of the plastic drive cogs may be damaged. Not economically repairable
  3. If the motor makes no sound then there are many, uncommon, possibilities including fuse, cable, switch, or burnt out motor. Bring it in
