This shredder has a magnet built into the door. If you open the door you'll see a metal strip on top right side of shredder. Either the magnet is not getting close enough to activate the reed switch or the hinges have came loose allowing a door sag condition. Also, if the shredder isnt that old, just contact GBC for some warranty work at 800-790-7787

Most shredders use a little lever on the door itself to depress a switch on the shredder cabinet when it's closed. This acts as a secondary on/off switch to allow the motor to work when it's safe to do so.Look inside the cabinet with the door open (usually around the perimeter of the opening, towards the top) for a switched door catch, a "slot" with a metal strip exposed, a little box with a lever jutting out of one end of it, or similar. The "slot" type is used when a door mounted "finger" depresses into the slot upon closing, and the metal strip completes the circuit. Any of these different mechanisms may need to be readjusted, replaced, or usually is just jammed up with bits of loose paper that doesn't allow the switch to close all the way. Hope this helps!

Dashboard warning light for doors will not go off when doors closed


This indicates a miscommunication between the door sensors and the computer. Use your multimeter, crack open your door panels to find the wiring connectors to the door switches. Continuity test the switches. If they all show a closed circuit when pressed, move upstream along the wiring, looking for breaks (fuses, damaged wiring, etc).

One of the clips which hold door close broke. thus, machine won't operate.


Does the door fully closing operate a safety switch? If so you might be able to get round this by clamping the door shut with(eg)a belt. Not the most elegant of solutions but it might work. I searched online and got a number of hits, one of which said that spares are not available. Not very encouraging! Try contacting manufacturer directly.

Reason for door codes on a frigdaire front load dryer


Assuming door seal is good, make sure there is nothing "caught" under the seal that prevents the door from closing properly. Otherwise, look for anything else that would contribute to that issue. Possibly the door switch that turns on the interior light and acts as a safety for a door open situation may not be operating properly. See my "generic" tip for "buzzing" dryer issues.

I have a red light next to an icon that looks like a door. The door is closed completely however it will not reset. Any suggestions? Thank you


Probably the sensor that checks for the door being closed has been bumped out of position or is dirty and cannot sense that the door is closed. Some shredders have a sensor that is mounted on a circuit board and they will go bad and the only way to fix it is to have someone replace that circuit board. Hope this helps!

How to remove door panel from a closed door


It cannot be done without the door open. Door must be open in order to access panel. Make sure you have the special spoon tool to fry open the clips otherwise you are ripping and damaging the paneling unless, you replace it. Good luck.

I have a GBC Shredmaster 2260X. The light on top is blinking that means that the cabinet front foor is not shut. When the front door is shut. I have tried everything I can think of. And it wont work...


most GBX shredders have a magnetic "reed" type switch inside the shredder head that is actuated by a magnet on your door. have you recently lost the magnetic catch on your door? if you have lost it and have access to a strong magnet, you should be able to open door and move magnet around on front side of shredder head and see the light go out. if magnetic catch is on door, then perhaps your door is misaligned in such a way as to not energize the switch.

good luck,
razors
