Question about Geha Primo 1800 Shredder

Open Question

Paper will not feed in

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

SOURCE: Shredder won't shred - all paper is cleared - works intermitantly

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.

The shredder was paper jammed


Hi,

Ensure the wastebasket is empty then move power switch to the REVERSE position. This will reverse the jammed paper out of the shredder. If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between REVERSE and AUTO (l) positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through the shredder. If the shredder jams in reverse mode, move the switch to AUTO (l), depress the manual forward button located on the center of the shredder head and allow to run for five seconds. If jam does not clear, move switch to REVERSE again and allow to run for five seconds.

Repeat this process until jam is cleared. If necessary, turn off shredder and use care to grasp the paper and carefully pull out to clear jam. Once cleared, move switch to AUTO (l) to continue shredding. The jamming may be happening because the cutting cylinder needs to be oiled.

Follow instructions to oil your shredder;

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three time.

Regards.

Shredder rollers do not turn; motor works good; all gears go arou


Will it work in reverse? Can you see the gears are they all moving? Is there a set pin?

Have a level 6, won't shred


Unplug the shredder. When you remove the cover carefully remove the auto start sensors. There is a little pushdown tab.Clean them with a soft cloth. A kleenex will be ok. Re-insert them, making sure they lock in place. Plug the shredder in an see if that solves your problem.
