Setting up the shredder
Warning: Crosscut shredders have very sharp exposed blades on the underside. Use care
when mounting the shredder on the wastebasket.
Caution: The shredder should not be plugged in during assembly.
Note: The following illustrations are for information purposes only. Your actual shredder may
look somewhat different than the shredder shown.
To set up the shredder:
1 Position the shredder head over the basket.
2 Place the shredder head on the basket so that it solidly rests on the basket edges.
Note: Always make sure that these two labels are aligned on the same side of the shredder
when you place the shredder head onto the basket. This shredder has a safety interlock
which prevents it from operating unless the shredder head is placed on the basket
correctly.
Using the shredder
Note: Prepare paper to be shredded by removing staples and paper clips from the paper.
Make sure that each batch of paper does not exceed the recommended capacity of six
sheets.
To use the shredder:
Caution:
• Do not overfeed the shredder: Shredding beyond the specified sheet capacity can
result in extensive damage to the shredder. Overfeeding will strain the machine and
quickly wear and break the cutting blades and internal components.

1 Plug in the power cord.
2 To begin shredding, locate the switch on the top of the shredder and select the On/Auto mode.
The green power LED indicates the shredder is on and ready to use.
Caution: Never shred paper clips, window or insulated envelopes, continuous forms,
newsprint, transparencies, laminated documents, cardboard, any items with adhesives,
hard materials, or plastic (except credit cards).
3 Slide the paper or credit card into the feed opening. The shredder automatically starts after the
paper or credit card has been inserted. The shredder stops automatically when it has finished
shredding.
Maintaining
Caution: Failure to properly maintain your shredder will void the warranty.
• Crosscut shredders require regular oil lubrication for optimal performance and extended
lifespan. We recommend you oil your shredder once a month. To lubricate your shredder,
drizzle some basic vegetable or cooking oil (nothing flammable or petroleum based) onto a
few sheets of paper and feed it into the shredder.
• Do not spray or keep any aerosol products in or around shredder.
• DO NOT USE CANNED AIR ON THE SHREDDER.
• Be sure to periodically empty the wastebasket to avoid overloading and damaging the cutting
mechanism.
To clean the shredder:
• ALWAYS UNPLUG THE SHREDDER BEFORE CLEANING!
• Only clean the shredder by carefully wiping the unit with a soft cloth or towel moistened with
mild soap and water. Dry the unit thoroughly.
• Do not clean or immerse the shredder in water. Having the unit wet may result in damage or
malfunction to the electrical components. If the shredder happens to get wet, be sure to
completely dry the unit immediately with a cloth or towel.
• Never use anything flammable to clean the shredder. This may result in serious injury or
damage to the product.

Troubleshooting
If there is a problem with your shredder, check below for the symptoms and steps to resolve. If you
continue to have problems, contact customer support at our Service Center. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
REPAIR BY OPENING THE SHREDDER HEAD. This will completely void the product warranty.
Symptom
Possible Solutions
The shredder does not work at • Make sure that the shredder is plugged in and that the outlet it is plugged into is
all.
in good working order.
• The shredder may overheat with extended use. In the event that the shredder has
shred continuously beyond the maximum running time and has overheated, the
shredder will automatically shut off. If this happens, switch the shredder off for
30 minutes or longer before resuming normal operation.
• If using a plastic bag to line the wastebasket, remove it. The bag may be the
cause of the shredder not operating properly.
• The activation sensor of the shredder is located near the center of the feed slot.
Be sure to feed directly into the center area to trigger the machine (especially
applies to smaller pieces of paper or credit cards).
The shredder runs in Rev mode • While in On/Auto mode, the motor will not start running until paper is inserted
but not in On/Auto mode.
into the feed slot. Set the unit to On/Auto and insert the paper to be shredded. It
is normal for the motor to run for a moment after setting it to On/Auto but it
should stop until paper is inserted. The sensor that activates the shredder in On/
Auto mode is located directly in the center of the slot. If the paper you are
inserting is narrow, it may not be detected by the sensor. It is possible that the
sensor, which activates the shredder, has become blocked with paper. Insert an
index card, directly in the center of the feed slot, and apply force. This will usually
clear any paper blocking the sensor.
There is a paper jam in the
shredder.
• Switch the shredder over into Rev (reverse) mode. While in reverse, the shredder
will back up and loosen the jammed paper. If required, you may need to tug and
remove several sheets to effectively clear the machine. When jammed paper is
loosened or removed, switch back to the On/Auto mode to continue shredding.
Repeat steps if needed.
CAUTION: Keep your hands away from the feed opening.
• With stubborn situations where the reverse function does not help, you may
loosen the jammed paper with shredder oil (cooking oil is acceptable, nothing
aerosol). Start by drizzling oil into the blades where the paper is jammed. Let it
soak for about 30 minutes to completely saturate. Return the shredder back to
On/Auto mode. If required, a rigid sheet of cardstock (old greeting card, folded
file folder, or a sheet torn from a cereal box) can be fed into the shredder to help
push the jammed paper through.
The shredder will not stop
running.
• The sensor that activates the shredder may be blocked. Insert a sheet of paper to
clear the sensor.
