I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it

Forward shredding will not run, no jam, reverse will run.


The switch usually only reverses the polarity of the motor, making it run forward or reverse. If the motor runs one way and not the other the one side of the switch is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

My shredder does not shred in forward mode only reverse mode. how can I fix it?


Gene,

You would need to replace the motor in this, what type of shredder we talking here?

There is a lever that engages FW and reverse many times people jam these things and the lever also becomes effected. I would need the make and model and further details but it sounds to me its going to need a fix-in or a new shredder. I hope its not one of those heavy duty shredders because your looking on spending some cash there then.

Best of Luck

update me with make and model asap

We were shredding some papers with our Intimus 405 shredder and it stopped working. It isn't jammed and the cutting rollers move freely. We have power to the shredder. Is there a built in fuse or maybe...


The Intimus 405 is a device built to last almost forever. I was lucky enough to be able to buy one and did never regret it. This device was built in the early 1980's and it runs and runs and runs. Yesterday I had to open it because I shredded some paper with some glammy strips of paper on it. It is very easy to dissassemble the device and clean it. And you now may see that it is made all of solid steel (indeed, the device is VERY heavy, most of the weight comes from the solid side plates and the powerful electric motors. Maybe you always wanted to look inside that device, so I provide some pictures. Good Luck!

A hair pin was put through our shredder by mistake and it became jammed. We cleared out the shredder and removed the hairpin however now the shredder does not operate. It will operate in reverse if you...


Yes small shredders don't like to shred metal.
You have probably blown the pcb inside the machine...would need to know make and model to provide further access for parts.

Shredder will only go in reverse. Waste bin full warning coming on. Waste bin is empty.


Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
or you can
switch the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred.

Champion shredder WQ120D will not shut down after shredding but continues to run . must move to center position to shut down


If you look at the blades, some are likely bent (probably the middle ones) causing the machine to not drop the clippings which makes it think that there's paper to be shredded. It's a common problem with this shredder and there's no fixing it because the company doesn't offer replacement parts. The shredder is an overpriced piece of junk. I bought mine at Walmart but our local store doesn't even carry them anymore because of all of the returns they've had.

My Aurora AS1010TX paper shredder will not shred paper. It will work in reverse.


If you want to attemp to take the machine apart, there should be a small spoked wheel called a pulse sensor that runs through U-shaped black device.

Blow this out as well as all electric devices inside.

My Champion Shredder doesn't cut off after the paper goes through.


Mine now just has the same problem. On mine it was because two of the cutting blades have become bent. It still shreds, but not as fast. You have to turn it on for a split second to see all the blades. You can only see about 1/4 of the blades at a time.
There is nothing you can do. And because my blades are bent it does't dispose of paper properly and also will not turn off automatically now.
