TS2550 shredder I had to take the top apart to clear out paper and two small plastic pieces fell out--I can't tell where they should go but the shredder clearly won't function without these. Any ideas?

FOLLOW THESE STEPS AND YOU MAY HAVE YOUR UNIT WORKING PROPERLY:
1-Remove the 6 screws that are located on the borders of the PS
2-Turn over, remove the cover and let the front of the unit rest on the base so that the switch is as close as possible to the motor.
3-The yellow cable goes on the 1st terminal, from right to left, on the top row. Next is the grey power cord wher the short cable goes on the 2nd terminal. The white cables (two in one connector) go to the 3rd terminal. the red cable is set in the 4th and last top terminal.
4-On the bottom row, right under the yellow cable, position the connector that has two black cables. The next position will hold the two red cables connector. The next terminal will hold the loose black cable connector and the last position will hold the negative side of the power cord. This negative is recognized because it has grooves along the cable whereas the positive side is completely smooth. Hope you undrstand my explanation.

Hi,

I have the same shredder with a different problem. Maybe we can help each other.

If you can describe the pieces I can find them inside my unit and tell you where they go.

My problem is that after I opened mine up, I turned it over to shake out shreds of paper. When I did this, the entire works fell out of the case and all of the wires disconnected from the 3-way switch. Can you look in yours and describe how the wires are connected to the 8 contacts on the switch. (a digital photograph would be GREAT!

I hope we can help each other.

How do you take apart a shredder it does not go forward


when my Aurora- AS662C shredder wouldn't go forward I assumed it had paper jammed into the blades -with it unplugged of course ,I removed 5 screws (back does not release) used tweezers to remove the jammed paper. When I initially pried it open- an off wt. plastic bar type thing fell out of it's place (on right side ) I set the plastic bar into it's place(if you look at you'll see how it set's into place, carefully closed the top making sure the bar didn't move and replaced the screws. I then ran papers through it -worked like new ! I almost bought another one and was about to throw it out ,figured I didn't have anything to loose . Best of luck -hope this helps

I have an older royal orca 9512x shredder that I purchased at staples....recently it wouldn't work...I found out that the plastic switch that triggers the shredder fell off ...a small projection of...


screw a small screw into the piece in the back right corner of the basket that the shredder fits on. This will adjust to the height needed to make the shredder run.

Paper shredder does not turn off. I have to open


I'm assuming that it automatically detects the presence of paper... .

By opening the drawer you're disabling it from the safety switch. (they dont want you to shred your fingers from the bottom) There is probably a small piece of paper holding the feed sensor down.

If you're confidant, unplug the unit and take apart the plastic cover. Do not remove anything inside. Look for the small switch between the blades which 'feels' the presence of paper. There is probably a small piece of paper wedged between the housing and the switch which would fool the unit into thinking it has paper that still needs to be shredded.
Carefully put your unit back together and happy shredding.
This may happen often, remember what you did!!!

Royal Orca 9512x was moved to another room and now it won't turn on. A square piece of plastic fell into the basket. But we can't tell where it came from. Not sure if that's related or not.


Make sure that switch on back right foot is setting down on paper bin. It makes the contact that turns all on. I also had to use swithc cleaner from Radio Shack to clean my main swithc on top control panel.

I have a Fellowes ps-65c shredder. If I load a piece of paper, it doesn't turn on automaticaly. If I turn on the switch the shredder runs OK in both directions. I have cleaned both sides of the paper...


its possible the sensor has gone bad

you will need to UNplug the unit , then take it apart 9 screws then gently pry it apart with a screwdriver or butter knife
you could test this with a voltmeter, one side emits a constant should have 5-12 volts across this
the other side the reciever will change its voltage when you break the signal with a piece of paper.

also ive seen chunks of plastic break off from inside and as the teeth rotate the plastic can cut the wire

Need wiring diagram/info for Tech Solutions TS2550 Paper Shredder


Hi,
Thank you so very much for going into so much detail about my shredder that wouldn't pull paper thru it. You were SO NICE to do all that & I sincerely wish I could send you a picture of the wiring. HOWEVER, I threw it away months ago when I got no answer to my problem. Guess I'm not patient enough :-) I sincerely appreciate your reply and wish that I could help you out. If I still had it, I'd just mail it to you :-)

Will not shred will go in Rev


I just fixed a similar issue. My AS702MX shredder fell off my desk while I was emptying the basket. When I tried to use it after that it only ran in reverse, not in auto/forward (it was not jammed). This meant that the motor was still working. Since this shredder is so old, no longer under warranty, and not working anyway, I decided to open it up. I unscrewed the 5 screws on the bottom (that's all), then the plastic covering opened up. While looking at the shredder from the top (without the plastic cover) you will see a small black plastic trigger mechanism in the middle (this is what the paper hits to start the shred) this piece will push a copper filament onto the motor to complete the "auto" circuit. Well the fall had caused the plastic trigger to dislodge on one side... I popped it back into place and closed it up, and its working fine now. It was really simple to fix.

Huge paper jam ( piece of a checkbook)


Throw it out and buy a new one! staples won't replace this unit and your gonna have to take it apart and clean the gears.
Also tell your employees to stop reversing the drive gears with paper inside the bucket it only reverses the flow and jams the unit.
I would buy a cross cut shredder next time.
Hope that helps.

Wont stop running


The auto switch is stuck. Feed more paper in it to clear it, and kick once for me. The shredder has a paper jam. You can try 3 or more sheets at one time to clear it. Also try 'paper shred oil'. You can buy it at Office Depot or Office Max.
