SOURCE: Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on

took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

I have an ativa shredder model MD 1250. Became jammed on some staples. Reversed it and pulled it out but no the auto shutoff won't work Is it fixable? The shredder still runs.


Robert,
Double check that you do not still have any paper that may have become stuck in front of the sensor for the auto shutoff. If there is something in front of the sensor it will keep running.

Hw do I free blades that are very tightly packed with paper?


Unplug the Machine, rotate them in reverse or you can pick the paper out by hand. UNPLUG the machine.

Jammed shredder


If your Ativa shredder has a bin, you can gain access to the shredding mechanism by removing the bin and turning the shredder upside down. With power disconnected, be prepared to spend considerable time picking out bits and pieces of material. Tweezers and a utility knife are useful tools. Eventually your shredder will be back in working order.

Ativa shredder


Most likely it will be a broken gear, you will need to disassemble the unit to replace the gear if you have the replacement ready. Try searching web for ativa spares and order gear for you model, otherwise you might need to disassemble the unit to remove old/broken gear and use it as sample when purchasing the replacement. If you know what you are doing the replacing gear task start to finish should not take more than 20minutes however it might take considerably longer depending on your technical knowledge and skills. Good luck

My ativa hs 2000 paper shredder will only run in reverse


If the motor will only run in reverse and, you are stating that all the buttons are working. then most likely, internally the motor has burned out try tapping the motor lightly with a small hammer while the shredder is plugged in and on in the forward position. if the motor begins to move it will lead you to the answer of a shorted out internally motor.

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

I work for Office Depot and the Ativa brand we get a lot back with this problem. It is a electrical problem in the sensor and all you can do is get a new shredder.

I have an Ativa DX 180 du shredder that has no forward motion but does reverse. I've keep the blades well oiled so I am not sure of what the problem could be. Please advise.


My shredder was only running in reverse, and it would make a clicking sound when i fed in the paper in forward. The sensor was okay, so this is what i did. Obvisouly something is blown on the mother board, and i can't fix that. I switched the wires around that go to the motor from the mother board. They just unplug, and it can easily be switched. Now when you put it in reverse, reverse is forward. You have no sensor, but you can still use it. Not the right way to fix it, but it's a fix if you are going to trash it anyway.
