Pull the top of the basket toward you and the top of it should swing out. Then you can lift the basket up and out once the top of the basket is partly open. Hope this helps. Have a good day. Mac =)

Does it make a difference which shredder oil I use? There are so many. I have a Tech Solutions cross cut TS8000.


You can use any kind of shredder oil. They are all priced so differently, I use fellows brand for my royal shredder & it works just fine.

My Tech Solutions TS4500 paper shredder will shred approximately 1/2 page of one or several sheets of paper. But at that point it chokes and will not shred any further. It will back the unshred portion...


My experience has been that when a shredder chokes it usually is trying to tell you the bin is full but a cross-cut shredder is less susceptible. I do have a heavy duty cross-cut shredder that gets rather wonky when suffering from indigestion. Check whether the amount of bin content is affecting yours.

Need wiring diagram/info for Tech Solutions TS2550 Paper Shredder


Hi,
Thank you so very much for going into so much detail about my shredder that wouldn't pull paper thru it. You were SO NICE to do all that & I sincerely wish I could send you a picture of the wiring. HOWEVER, I threw it away months ago when I got no answer to my problem. Guess I'm not patient enough :-) I sincerely appreciate your reply and wish that I could help you out. If I still had it, I'd just mail it to you :-)

Either there is a piece of paper that is jammed where the paper in sensor is located, or there is paper fibers covering the paper in sensor, or the paper in sensor is defective.

The paper in sensor is usually located in the center of the shredder where you place your paper. Once you locate your sensor, you can try blowing it out with a can of air that is used to clean your keyboard out.
Since the opening for the paper or the Thoat width is 9", the switch should be close to 4.5" towards the center.
To try to help you located the sensor, take a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11 paper and fold it in 1/2 Long ways. This will place a crease in the middle of the paper. With the power off, or unplugged, place the paper in the shredder and look around where the middle of the paper (crease) lines up in the shredder. You might need a flashlight to help you located it. It will either look like a slot, or a little black lever.
Hopefully you will be able to blow the sensor out and clean it.
Good luck.
