Shredder runs continuosly

My Techko SH52008 shredder auto-stop no longer works. I have to turn it off manually between feeds. I have not had it for long and have always run it well within its operating margins.

Each manufacturer use different device to detect the input materials.
if you have the shredder less than 2 years old, it may have electric eye.
go to any of the computer store, and get a can of compress air.
clean out the cutting slot.

Unplug the shredder and get aflash light look into the cutting slot.
there is micro switch in the slot.
must likely the switch is stucked, and not flipping back out.
try to use something thin clean off some of the glue (yes glue!) on and around the switch.
make sure the switch is free to move.

When bin was full, I emptied it only to find that my shredded no longer worked on auto, forward or reverse


Dear Sir,
Maybe, just maybe, I have an answer for you.
Somewhere on the part of your shredder that touches the bin, there is a tiny switch that touches the bin, and it is a safety switch that causes the shredder to stop working if the bin is removed.
In the shredder I have, and have had, the switch is usually plastic, and is the same color as the plastic body of the shredder.
Proper positioning of the bin to the "bottom" of the shredder is critical to it's working, as the bin presses on the switch to "close" it.
God bless your efforts.

How do I unjam it?


Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

How to open


More information would be helpful. If you mean "open" the top portion where the motor is, you can find the answer you need by going on YOUTUBE and just type in what you are looking for.

Shredder won't turn on when plugged up


Shredders have a safety switch that won't allow it to run if it is off of the bin. Sometimes if the shredded is on the bin backwards it won't run because the plastic piece on the bin that presses the switch is only on one side of the bin. Sometimes if the switch goes bad, the shredder won't run.

Shredder not working


Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. Sensor is usually located in the center of the paper feed opening.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc1.gif board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.
