Question about Tech Solution TS-4500 Shredder

Paper shredder Re: techsolutions paper shredder TS4500 This shredder was given to me a long time ago and I wondered why it never worked even though it looked new. Finally today I decided that I'd MAKE it work :) I don't remember ever seeing something called an interlock switch, but apparently there's an safety interlock switch that needs to be in a slot at the bottom of the shredder. How can I replace this part?

Re: paper shredder

The only solution with respect to safety is to order a new switch from the companuy that manufactures/sells this shredder, and mount it according to the manufacturer/sales company's instructions.
If you want to bypass the safety of the machine, just keep the cables (should be 2, + eventually a ground cable) open, or shorted, depending of the machine's configuration. Remember that this is on your or your collegaues own risk!! A shredder can easily bite your finger off!

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.

Need to re-adjust the paper sensor switch

I have one of this model. You can see 6 holes with screws in them. The 7th hole is under the serial number paper tag near where you see a deformity of the plastic. I have not taken it apart & I don't know if the sensor is adjustable.
