Re: Achiever ccs 5000 no power at all

My Achiever CCS 5000 acted like it had a loose power connection, but inspection revealed nothing. Reading ronie-1's note led me to check the microswitch. Looked OK but no go. Removed the microswitch (two screws) and was able to start the motor by depressing the red button on microswitch. Then removed the red tab on hopper and inserted a thin metal washer under each screw. (Don't over-tighten or the tab base will crack. When replacing, orient tab toward outside of hopper.) Shredder works fine now. Thanks for your Website!

I emptied the bin completely. Then i cleaned out under the bin. Inside where the bin sits. That fixed it. The micro switch was not free. The cleaning out of paper shreds freed up the switch and it works perfectly.

The sensor (kill) Switch that the motor activate wehen you place the mottor correctly on the top of the basket may be loose, what I did is put a small screw in to the hole of that switch so it did solve the problem by reaching deeper in to the motor side and activate that sensor, otherwise I have had this CCS 500 for 10 years now ! and it works great , just don't heat the mottor , let it rest every 3 minutes for 1 min....

I need a brown fuse for my Achiever CCS/5000 Cross cut shredder.Where can I find it?

If you are looking for a fuse you must specify the type, get the specks from the brown fuse such as:
1. current rating e.g. 13A (very important)
2. Potential Difference(PD) e.d 110V (very important)
3. Wattage e.g. 300W (very important)
4. Temperature rating (if indicated) e.g 120 degrees Celsius.
With these ratings you are able to find your fuse in an electronic shop
