Need wiring diagram/info for Tech Solutions TS2550 Paper Shredder

I opened the unit to clean it out. When I turned it over to dump out paper shreds, the entire shredding mechanism and motor fell out. All that was left connected to the case was the 3 position switch. I have it all assembled back together, but have no idea what the proper order is for reconnecting the wires to the switch.

The wires are as follows:

    I have a Tech Solutions TS-2550 paper shredder that I've had forever. I took it apart to clean it as it wasn't shredding correctly. Unfortunately I inadvertantly disconnected the wire terminals to the switch. Can you tell me what the configuration is (what color wire goes to which terminal)so I can get it back together.

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 :-)

Paper shredder does not turn off. I have to open


I'm assuming that it automatically detects the presence of paper... .

By opening the drawer you're disabling it from the safety switch. (they dont want you to shred your fingers from the bottom) There is probably a small piece of paper holding the feed sensor down.

If you're confidant, unplug the unit and take apart the plastic cover. Do not remove anything inside. Look for the small switch between the blades which 'feels' the presence of paper. There is probably a small piece of paper wedged between the housing and the switch which would fool the unit into thinking it has paper that still needs to be shredded.
Carefully put your unit back together and happy shredding.
This may happen often, remember what you did!!!

My paper shredder stopped working


First things First...UNPLUG THE UNIT. It sounds like it has been fed too many pages at one time. You may also want to dump any shredded paper so there is plenty of room for the shredder blades to pull in the paper. If the paper catcher is too full the blades can grab shreds from the bottom and stop the blades movement. Just be careful. Shredders can be dangerous.

My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode


UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.

If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.

If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.

TS2550 shredder


Hi,

I have the same shredder with a different problem. Maybe we can help each other.

If you can describe the pieces I can find them inside my unit and tell you where they go.

My problem is that after I opened mine up, I turned it over to shake out shreds of paper. When I did this, the entire works fell out of the case and all of the wires disconnected from the 3-way switch. Can you look in yours and describe how the wires are connected to the 8 contacts on the switch. (a digital photograph would be GREAT!

I hope we can help each other.

Won't pull paper


Hi,

I have the same shredder with a different problem. Maybe we can help each other.

It sounds like you have paper jammed in the shredding mechanism. I've cleaned paper jams out of mine quite a few times. The first and most important step is to make sure the shredder is unplugged. Hold the unit up to look through the shredding slot. Some of the openings between the opposing shredding wheels will be filled with paper. Using a small screwdriver (narrow blade at least 3 inches long) you can gently push the paper through. It works best if you can us a pair of needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper out the other side. It takes patience, but it works. Good Luck.

It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.

Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.
