Question about Quartet gbc ShredMaster 950S Strip-Cut Shredder
I was off work a couple of days. When I returned the bin had been emptied, the bag frame put in backwards and paper was jammed. The top hinge on the cabinet door was broken. I unjammed the paper (included was a large label with sticky back), fixed the frame with bag. The door can be lifted a bit to make the magnet connection. The light goes on but does not go forward or reverse. The sensor plate that goes up when the bag is full seems to work fine. What else can I check for? (except new employees) Thanks!
most GBX shredders have a magnetic "reed" type switch inside the shredder head that is actuated by a magnet on your door. have you recently lost the magnetic catch on your door? if you have lost it and have access to a strong magnet, you should be able to open door and move magnet around on front side of shredder head and see the light go out. if magnetic catch is on door, then perhaps your door is misaligned in such a way as to not energize the switch.

Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.
What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene
