Avoid loose clothing or jewelry touching the document feed opening.
Avoid getting your hair near the document feed opening.
1 RISK OF FIRE. Never use any petroleum based or flammable oils or lubricants in or around the

2 NEVER dispose of flammable chemicals or materials that have come into contact with
flammable chemicals (for example, nail polish, acetone, gasoline) in the shredder basket.
3 Never shred plastic (except credit cards and CDs), any hard materials, continuous forms,

into the shredder and cause jams.
Never place the shredder near water or any heat source.
Keep the wastebasket emptied so that the shredder output is not impeded.
Do not use the shredder if the power cord is damaged in any way.
Do not attempt to service this product yourself as doing so may expose you to sharp cutting
blades and/or electricity and will void the manufacturers warranty.

6 Complete assembly by sliding the wastebasket back in. Plug shredder into a nearby
socket-outlet and switch the power mode over to “Auto”. Make sure that the wastebasket is slid
fully into the shredder body. This shredder features a safety power cutoff and does not operate
if the wastebasket is removed.

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.
• Overheating with extended use: In the event that the shredder has shred
continuously beyond the maximum running time and overheats, the unit will
automatically shut off. If this happens, switch the shredder Off for 30 minutes or
longer before resuming normal operation.

shred opening. Always feed the paper in as straight as possible. When the paper has
passed through, the shredder will automatically stop.
O
OFF
This setting turns off all features of the shredder. For safety reasons, we recommend that
you leave the shredder in the "Off" position whenever the shredder is unattended or not
in use.

REV
In the unlikely event of a paper jam, the reverse setting can be used to help clear the
(Reverse) cutters of paper that has not passed through. Never attempt to clear a jam by using the
reverse function until you have emptied the wastebasket.
READY
Indicates
The green LED light indicates the shredder is “On” and ready for use.
2 Press the designated “push open” area on the handle of the cover (on top) to tilt open and
expose the paper feed slot. The cover will click into a preset position for safe shredding.* With
the feed slot now open, you can shred sheets of paper or one credit card per pass.
*Be sure not to tilt open the cover completely beyond the preset position, otherwise the
ShredSafe™ power cut off feature will be activated and the shredder will be inoperable.
3 When shredding is completed, you can press the designated “push close” area on the cover (on
top) to tilt shut the paper feed slot. We recommend that you close the paper feed slot when the
shredder is not in use. This will prevent any objects from getting into the feed slot and being
accidentally shredded.
To use the shredder for CDs or credit cards:
Warning: Do not hold a CD/DVD with your finger through the center ring while feeding it
into the shredder. Serious injury may occur.

Caution:
• Never feed more than one credit card or CD/DVD at a time.
• Only shred credit cards by feeding them vertically into the middle of the entry,
releasing when shredding begins. Never feed more than one credit card at a time.
• Do not activate the reverse function while shredding credit cards or CDs/DVDs.
• Hold the CD/DVD by the edge and feed one at a time, releasing when shredding begins. The
shredder will stop when the entire disc has been destroyed.
Caution:
• Never shred large paper clips, window or insulated envelopes, continuous forms,
newsprint, transparencies, laminated documents, cardboard, any items with
adhesives, hard materials, or plastic (except Credit Cards and CDs/DVDs).
• This shredder will shred staples and small paperclips. It is recommended that you
remove paper clips whenever possible to extend the lifespan of your shredder.
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 dry soft cloth or towel.
• 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.

in good working order.
• Overheating 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.
• Be sure not to tilt the cover completely open beyond the preset position,
otherwise the ShredSafe™ power cut off feature will be activated and the
shredder will be inoperable.
• Shredders with pull-out wastebaskets feature a safety power cut off upon bin
removal. The shredder will not function unless the pull-out wastebasket is
pushed in all the way and properly set back into place.
• 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).

into the feed slot. Set the unit to "Auto" and insert the paper to be shredded. It is
normal for the motor to run for a moment after setting it to "Auto" but it should
stop until paper is inserted. The sensor that activates the shredder in Auto mode
is located directly in the center of the slot. If the paper you are inserting is narrow,
it may not be hitting the switch. It is possible that the trigger, 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 switch and force the switch closed.
There is a paper jam in the
shredder.
• Switch the shredder over into Reverse (REV) 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 Auto-On mode to continue
shredding. Repeat steps if needed.
• 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
Auto-On 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.
