Fellowes shredders need oiling periodically. Cross-cut shredders need monthly oiling. Paper jamming; the shredder shredding less than its capacity; and squeaking or rubbing noises can indicate that a shredder’s cutting blades need oiling. Fellowes sells specific shredder oil for its products, but you can also use corn or canola oil. Fellowes oil comes in a small bottle with a nozzle tip.

Press the Reverse button and hold it down.

Place the extension nozzle tip of the oil bottle in the slot that you use to insert paper into the shredder and introduce a stream of oil across the slot in a single continuous action.

Turn the power switch to the Auto position, or if you shredder has it, press the Forward button. Let the blades run for a few seconds.
