Specially designed paper shredder oils are available from paper shredder manufacturers such as Fellowes, GBC, and MBM. You must use actual shredder oil which is manufactured specifically for your machine. Otherwise your shredder may be damaged and your warranty will be voided. To oil your device, simply apply some shredder oil to the machine’s blades, run it in reverse, and shred some paper. The paper will soak up any excess lubricant and your device sun be much quieter when it’s running.
However, sometimes the paper can get truly good and stuck. If this is the case, soak the stuck paper with shredder oil. Let the oil saturate the paper for about 15 minutes and then repeat the actions listed above. Finally, to prevent future jams, be sure to regularly oil your machine using shredder oil. To oil your shredder, simply apply the oil to your shredder’s blades via the paper entry.
