    My daughter purchased a document shredder. The name is Shredder Essentials
    Model SES - C810 Serial #B07130500876

    After some usage, it stopped working. I opened the casing and found that
    there were two nylon gears that had stripped. I contacted Shredder
    Essentials on their WebSite and asked for their service manual, and told
    them what had happened. That was a couple of months ago, and I haven't
    heard from them at all.

    I would like to purchase a service manual for this shredder and also replace
    the two gears with metal ones. Does anyone here have any info on this?

    Very doubtful that you'll find a service manual for a shredder. The mfr
    probably never created one.
    Just buy the gears and replace them.
    I had a Fellowes shredder some years ago. The nylon gears fell apart after a
    couple years, so I contacted one of the vendors that serviced Fellowes
    shredders. They had a repair kit that consisted of metal gears (not the limited
    life nylon gears). I bought the kit (about $12 for the kit, as I remember),
    installed the gears, and shredded paper for years to come. It was still working
    when I replaced it with a confetti shredder a couple years ago.
    You might contact the mfr or their web site to see if there is a similar repair
    kit available for your shredder.

    Cheers!!!!

    I have contacted the company and no response. Where could I get the gears
    from?

    Google for shredder repair parts. Please don't ask me to do your legwork.

  5. All that crap is mass produced in some mud hut in
    a fucking rice paddy by 12 year shoe less kids.

    While your repair interest is honorable, this
    isn't the land of repair anymore, just disposal
    shit.

    U May want to scout out a hobby shop that sells
    little stuff like that. Robot kits. Remote controlled planes.

    Office Depot $15 ... buys reasonable replacement.

    or find a Maytag $2000 model with in home repair service.
