Question about Geha Primo 1800 Shredder
I have a Geha Primo 1800 Shredder. The motor turns the shredder teeth in reverse manually with the rocker switch but will not autofeed the paper in. I am assuming one of three things might be wrong. The sensor is broke or blocked, the rocker switch is not working on the feed in side or something is disconnected inside. I lost the owners manual and do not know how to remove the top cover to get inside to check it out. Any advise on repair would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Run the shredder in "Reverse" mode for 15 seconds.
Oil the cutting head thoroughly as this is a High Security shredder.
Test it at 4-5 sheets.
They always overrate the capacity but if you want to keep it operating, shred 3-5 sheets max.
Running for serveral minutes could be due to dirty optic sensors. Unplug the shredder, remove the top (2 screw underneath front and 2 in back). Remove the sensors (they have a little pushbutton tab) and clean thoroughly with a soft cloth. Re-insert the sensors ensuring they lock in place, reset the top cover and test.
