Question about Quartet gbc ShredMaster 950S Strip-Cut Shredder

Open Question

GBC Shredmaster 950s.light is on, no jam, does not go f or revers

I was off work for a couple of days. When I returned I saw that someone had emptied the Shredmaster 950s. The bag frame was in backwards and the door ajar. Someone had broken the top hinge of the door. I saw that there was some paper jammed...I unjammed it, every bit of paper out. There was a piece of a large shelf tag with a sticky back that was in there. The plate on the bottom that senses the bin is full still seems to work. You can still close the door and make the magnets touch. The light goes on, but does not go forward or reverse. Help!

SOURCE: Hello, I have a GBC Shredmaster 6120S

Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

SOURCE: GBC Shredmaster 5260X - door is closed by light indicates otherwise

Most shredders use a little lever on the door itself to depress a switch on the shredder cabinet when it's closed. This acts as a secondary on/off switch to allow the motor to work when it's safe to do so.Look inside the cabinet with the door open (usually around the perimeter of the opening, towards the top) for a switched door catch, a "slot" with a metal strip exposed, a little box with a lever jutting out of one end of it, or similar. The "slot" type is used when a door mounted "finger" depresses into the slot upon closing, and the metal strip completes the circuit. Any of these different mechanisms may need to be readjusted, replaced, or usually is just jammed up with bits of loose paper that doesn't allow the switch to close all the way. Hope this helps!

get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the jammed paper out. (you may need to figure out how to pop off the top cover to get better access to the blades)

One of the clips which hold door close broke. thus, machine won't operate.


Does the door fully closing operate a safety switch? If so you might be able to get round this by clamping the door shut with(eg)a belt. Not the most elegant of solutions but it might work. I searched online and got a number of hits, one of which said that spares are not available. Not very encouraging! Try contacting manufacturer directly.

My shredder is stuck in reverse. How do I get it to go forward?


Unplug, open and remove all partly shreded paper fron the underside, then try it again. If it is hot to the touch, let it cool for about 15 minutes before trying it again.
