Old Rexel 1250 - falsely detecting safety cover is open

Hi - we have an old Old Rexel 1250 shredder that I need some help on. It jammed, so I reversed the paper and split it as I had put too many pieces of paper in. Then it refused to shred anything further so I opened the safety cover and removed some small bits of paper. Now it wont recognise that the safety cover is down and in the normal position.

Any suggestions?

    I also have an old Rexel 1250, and it falsely detect the waste bin is full. It started when the waste bin was indeed full, since I emptied it, I had the alarm.



    Thanks for any suggestion.

    Before you secured the top cover, did you check to see if all of the cables were connected to the main PC board? This could correct your problem.

You'll have to unplug the machine, then remove the screws front (inside door or cabinet) and rear to remove the top cover. Insure that the safety cover arm which contacts the microswitch is not broken or the microswitch is out of adjustment.

Rexel 100X. Why does it work for 2 seconds in reverse only, then jams?


From your description, experience tells me there is something jamming the mechanism. If plastic or clay coated material has been shredded, there will be residue between the grinding wheels that will require use of a utility knife and a pick to remove bit by bit. You will have to apply power periodically to rotate the mechanism and give access to new areas to be cleaned.

Paper Jammed


I have had the paper jam in my shredder which was not a Fellowes. I removed the power plug from the wall and used old dentist tools to pick the pieces of paper out of the shredding mechanism from underneath. I did not need to remove the cover. After extracting some paper try using the paper reverse option.

Rexel shredder


Spray with WD-40 or similar lubricant/release agent and let it soak for a while, the remove anything that's jamming the sensor with tweezers and switch the unit on and keep cycling between auto and reverse for a minute or two until unit gets unjammed. Then to reduce friction and to protect the blades use some oil in the feed opening, especially after using WD-40 Good luck

Shredder jammed with too much paper will not reverse or forward how do I clear it


hi

BOB

What you can do is try to open the machine and rotate the motor in anti clockwise as that you can get the paper released. But remember do not try to use the Shredder for testing if the covers are open.

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.

Sx-102M


I have the Infoguard SX-100M Axeus, sold by Staples.
Only the reverse was working, UNPLUG and open back cover, the paper mechanical switch was working fine, the gears and fuse was ok, I think something on the circuit board was fried.
I switched the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when I switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred. Its working now, only in reverse.
