One needs to run reverse at least once every three uses forward.

The problem is that one needs to clear paper jam - it does take a little bit to make sure YOU pick all paper from the cutters.

IT is a LIGHT-weight use machine, and sometimes you need to allow the machine to work at its pace - not YOURS...

This situation has happened to me. ;)

I am new to this product ,but i would guess any brand of dry silicone spray would do the trick. I use this spray at my work and it is verry usefull, with all things that has a tendancy to stick. And it is not greasy so it won't clog the works. I also used it on my last shredder and it worked just fine. I changed to this shredder beacuse of the cross cutting for the security.
