Apparently this shredder keeps going until the bin is so full you can't open it easily. That is the problem we had with ours. After unplugging the unit, I pulled the bin back and forth using the front recessed handle until I could squeeze my hand in there. I wasn't too forceful fearing I would break the front door....and this took several minutes to accomplish. I grabbed as much paper as I could....espically the compacted mass in the top section. Eventually I was able to fully open the door and clean out the bin. Hope that helps.

Shredder bin full


Most models: 1) unplug, 2) put something down to collect paper bits, 3) lift up the shredder top unit off the bin, 4) empty the bin, 5) try and pull out any paper from the shredder top using tweezers - first remove paper that has not fed through by pulling it back out.
Often if the bin is overfull the shredder gets clogged and won't work or beeps. When unplugged, you have to carefully remove all the bits of paper from the teeth to unjam the two rows of teeth. Remedy is to frequently empty the bin.

Sometimes the sensor gets blocked by pieces of shredded paper. Unplug the unit and remove it from the paper bin. Turn it upside down and see if there are any "stray" pieces of shredded paper hanging on the unit. Remove the stray and replace the unit onto the bin making sure it is properly seated. If that is not the problem, try "tamping" the shredded paper into the bin and by doing so, giving the machine more room for the shredded paper. If neither of these help, refer to your owner's manual to see what recourse you may have.

BIN FULL LIGHT IS ON BUT IT IS EMPTY


Unplug the unit from the power source. Open the front of the machine to expose the bin area. Remove the paper bin and look for any signs of paper trapped at or around the blade area. Pull or brush away any debris that may be in that area. Wipe around the sensor with a dry loin cloth or use a can of compressed air for tighter areas. Replace the bin and close the front. Reconnect the power and the Bin Full light should go out.

I did not empty the shredder soon enough & now the drawer will not open. Is there a way lift off the top without messing up the machine?


Try tilting the shredder forwards and pull the waste bin out as much as you can...you may have to reach in to try to pull some of the "compacted" paper out of the waste bin...once you remove some of the paper then the waste bin should slide out more freely. This may make a bit of a mess while fishing out the paper.

I can't get the door open do empty the shredding


You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin.

Just got a px1000mx & the paper basket is full. How the heck do you open it? Did not see the answer in the instructions - it's gotta be easy, right?

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.
