CARING FOR YOUR SHREDDER
Clean covers with a clean dry cloth. Do not use water or solvents. Make sure you
disconnect your shredder from its power source before cleaning.
Paper shredders, like all mechanical equipment, need proper maintenance to
ensure efficient operation. Periodic lubrication of the cutting blades is important to
offset the friction generated within the cutting head. Frequency of lubrication will
vary depending on the shred size and the amount of usage. A strip-cut shredder
receiving light use (1 – 2 hours per week) will require lubrication only once or
twice a month, while the same machine used 1 – 2 hours per day will require
lubrication weekly. A cross-cut shredder should be lubricated every ½ hour of
shredding time to maintain maximum capacity and efficiency.
The procedure for lubricating your shredder is simple, and can be performed by
any operator. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly to the
cutting blades through the feed opening (3). Run a fine stream of lubricant from
one side of the feed opening to the other. Run the shredder in REVERSE for a
few seconds to help distribute the lubricant evenly. You can now continue
shredding as usual.
DAHLE Shredder Oil is the only lubricant you should use in your paper shredder.
It has been specially formulated so as not to leave any residue that could attract
dust and clog the shredding mechanism. You can order DAHLE Shredder Oil
(item # 740) from your local dealer.
Repairs on your paper shredder should only be performed by qualified
technicians. If you need service, contact your local dealer, or you can contact
DAHLE North America Customer Service between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm EST at
(800) 995-1379.
NOTE: SHREDDER WILL NOT OPERATE UNLESS DOOR IS COMPLETELY CLOSED

SHREDDING
20606 S ◆ 20606 C ◆ 20612 C
Turn shredder on. Insert paper squarely into

Feed Opening until the shredding mechanism
begins to draw the paper in. At this point,
allow the paper to feed into shredder on its
own. When shredding is complete, turn
shredder off.
20606 EC ◆ 20612 EC ◆ 20614 EC ◆ 20630 EC ◆ 20634 EC
CAPACITY
Capacity is the number of sheets of 8½” x 11” paper that can be shredded at one
time. These figures are approximate and machines may vary slightly due to
various conditions. It is not recommended that you try to run your shredder at
maximum capacity, as this increases the chance of a paper jam.

CLEARING A PAPER JAM
If too many sheets of paper are fed into your shredder at one time, it may cause a
paper jam. Running your shredder at maximum capacity increases the chance of
a paper jam. If a paper jam occurs, it is easy to clear by following these simple
steps:
Turn shredder on. Insert paper squarely into
Feed Opening (3). A light barrier will automatically activate the shredding mechanism.
Continue feeding paper into the Feed Opening
until the shredding mechanism begins to
draw the paper in. At this point, allow the paper
to feed into the shredder on its own. Once the
paper has passed completely through the shredding mechanism, the electronic
controls will automatically stop the machine.
20606 S ◆ 20606 C ◆ 20612 C
To shred a piece of paper too small to break the light barrier, press the
FORWARD button (7) once to override the auto ON/OFF function. The shredder
will continue to run until the FORWARD button is pressed again.
The Auto-Reverse feature, built into the electronic versions of the General Office
Shredders, helps prevent paper jams. If the Auto-Reverse feature is activated an
audible alarm sounds and the Paper Jam Indicator (6) lights up. If this situation
occurs, follow these simple steps:
1. Remove paper from Feed Opening. The REVERSE button (7a) may be used
if excess paper remains in the Feed Opening. Clear shredding mechanism
by pressing the FORWARD button (7).
2. Separate some of the sheets and continue shredding.
Microfiche and transparencies can also be shredded in the same manner as
paper, however, you should shred a piece of paper after every 8 or 10 sheets of
plastic. This helps clean plastic particles out of the shredding mechanism.
REMEMBER TO LUBRICATE YOUR SHREDDER ACCORDING TO INSTRUCTIONS
1. Turn shredder off using ON/OFF/REVERSE switch (8a).
2. Firmly pull on paper sticking out of Feed Opening while holding
ON/OFF/REVERSE switch in the REVERSE (R) position.
3. After paper has been removed from the Feed Opening, move the
ON/OFF/REVERSE switch back to the ON (I) position.
4. Separate some of the sheets and continue shredding.
20606 EC ◆ 20612 EC ◆ 20614 EC ◆ 20630 EC ◆ 20634 EC
IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED RUNNING SHREDDERS AT MAXIMUM CAPACITY
