I don't think this model has a fuse on the PC Board but if it does, unplug the power cord.
Remove the top cover (2 screw front and 2 screw back). Check board and check all connections.

It's probably just a defective switch. The only other thing that would cause this problem would be a defective Main PC board.

Why does my shredder run when there is no paper, but stops as soon as I insert paper into the slot?!


You may have paper stuck in the blades and its jamming.try forward and reverse to free it up or you may have the head unit on the can faced the wrong way. Pull it out and turn head around and than try. I know on some shredders if the head unit does not fit on the right way it wount push down the safety switch and it wount run.

My elite gate won't close. the charge ok led light is not on. checked everything and it's ok. switch limit switch on both sides works fine except when trying to close, it won't run.


If you disengage the motor does the gate slide easily? if not that could be the problem, most gate control boards have a sensor that detects the current drawn by the motor, if the gate hits an obstruction or is jammed the motor draws more current and the sensor stops the gate moving. It could also be a problem with the safety sensor, to check this locate the safety sensor input on the control panel and bridge the 2 contacts if the gate then works the safety sensor is the problem.

Andrew,
You have done all the right troubleshooting.

I would say the circuit board is toast.

Minolta copier di-450 code : c-143e


The correct error code is C 143E - EDH malfunctions.Please reset the malfunctuion code to open and closed the front door,or turn OFF wait 5 sec. and turn ON the power switch.If the problem persist change the image processing board.
Pick up motor malfunction
Whwn the document handling tray goes to up the pick up raised position sensor is not unblocked when the motor started turning forward.Whwn thw DHT goes down the pick up lower position sensor is not unblocked after the motors started turning backward.
During ascent motion check :
1.Foreign matter on pick up motor gear
2.Pick up motor operatio.The voltage across PJ11A 1 of main control board and GND is 0V when the motor is deenergized and 24 V when the motor is energized when the DHT is raised after the malfunction reset.
3.Pick up raised position sensor operation.
Change the motor,sensor or main control board.
During descent motion
1.Check the pick up motor gear.
2.Check the pick up motor operation
3Check the pick up lower position sensor operation.

Shredder won't run


I had similar problem. I took unit apart and checked the motor by hotwiring it after checking voltage coming off the circuit board connections that the motor is connected to. Motor did not run until I tapped it a couple times with a hammer. Seems ok now.

Janitrol/Goodman GMP075-3 Draft Inducer Fan Won't come on


most forced draft fans are powered by 120 volts . close to the fan is usually a plug that unsnaps. create a call for heat after turning off to clear safetys and see if your getting 120 to fan on initial call for heat. if you are then fan draft motor is bad, usually sold as an entire assembly replace exact as it came out. sequence of operation is..... stat calls for heat via common and white wire to furnace , 24 volts. ......board sences call and sends 120 volts to forced draft ........ motor runs and creates pressure on proofing switch,....... switch closes 24 to board and tells it draft fan is on......... board then energizes ignitor,....... after ignitior glows gas valve is opened and burner lights ........ either ignitor or seperate sensor rod tells board the burner lit........ and a few minutes later the fan comes on and hot air is blown out. if a step is missed or doesn't proof the furnace either trys up to three times to light or locks out. turning off power usually resets safetys and it will resume attempts to lite normally.

Shredder Motor goes in reverse, but will not run or shred, or go forward


The first thing you want to check is the mechanical paper feed sensor. It is located in the center of the paper throat. A switch that gets pushed back when paper is inserted. Sometimes paper gets stuck behind it and you can jiggle the switch to work it loose. If that does not work try moving the basket around a little, this unit has a magnetic safety interlock switch located under center of basket. If niether of these help you please contact us at Fellowes Customer Service 800-945-4545.
