Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
There is absolutely no power in this unit. I just purchased it about 4 hours ago. I'm very disappointed as I really researched shredders and this one was rated very good by consumers.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you are referring to the paper feed sensor switch in the paper throat it sounds like the pc board or switch itself may be bad. I could troubleshoot a little better if I actually had you on the phone. A Customer Service Rep can help you at 1-800-945-4545.

For me, the problem was the sensor connections. I took the unit apart (7 phillips screws, I'm not sure why I didn't have to remove the 8th.) Then I took the paper sensor unit off (2 more phillips screws.) Then I removed the little black box that both sensor wires are connected to (1 more phillips screw.) Then I pried that box open with a flat head screwdrive. Some parts fell out. I put it all back together and it worked.
If you don't want to mess with it, just remove the two wires and tie them together. The unit will always be on when turned on to Auto, but that's better than not working.

I lived with the problem for 6+ Months -- drove me NUTS -- Today, I called Fellows -- Spoke to "JoAnn"... She said this works 80% of the time...
Pull out the bin -- put your foot inside to hold the shredder down -- pull up on the top of the shredder -- you WILL hear a POP as the plastic top disengages from the bottom but TRUST ME THIS IS OK! -- take off this top section (which houses the blades) -- flip it over -- you will see 6 screws total but it is the sets of 2 screws close together to focus on -- right next to the screws you will see a tiny glass sensor -- use a q-tip and alcohol to give them a wipe -- press the top back on -- bin back in -- you are DONE -- This took me less than 1 minute and it works as it did the day I got it! Go shred something! :)

you will need to open it and test the on/off switch, door switch, fuse all for continuity. turn the machine off and unplug it . unscrew it from the base. flip it over, unscrew the bottom. now test with a dm. if you are needing a tech i michigan please call 248-677-8112

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.
