I don't think it is normal. At our office, we have an inexpensive "Staples" brand shredder that we've had for at least 8 years (maybe longer) It's been moved----occupyng 2-3 different offices and has been used heavily at times, including people feeding through too much paper, paper with staples still present---basically beaten up---and it works fine. Fellowes is known to make very good shredders too----I wonder what went wrong?

Did you keep it lubed? The dinky little shredders die constantly, but the serious office use ones are built for the long haul, if maintained..

I have an inexpensive home shredder purchased from walmart. It started to work intermittently. I carefully took it apart, (five screws) & noticed many small bits of paper in the shredder mechanism. With a pair of tweezers & a brush i removed all of the bits of paper. After reassembling the unit it works fine.

I have a Fellowes shredder that I bought back in 1984 and it still works great! I have done little to maintain it. Perhaps it's a testament of how quality has gone downhill with many products but I had tossed around the idea of replacing it. Perhaps I'll rethink that one and just be happy with what I have.

You have to be sure to oil any paper shredder...but as a rule, the more expensive crosscut ones last longer.
