Question about Office Depot Ativa DQ60M Shredder
Spl 1506x shreader
I have a Fellows paper Shredder. When I turn the switch on the motor hums loud and rotates very slow. If I push the reverse button it continues to hum but rotates in the reverse direction. I checked the capacitor and it measures 26 micro farads. The spec is 25 so I think that is good. I have 11 ohms across the capacitor leads and I have 5.5 ohms across each capacitor lead and the hot so I think the windings are good. I don't see any obvious issues on the circuit board.

I have the same problem of reversal. Upon disassembly, I was surprised to find a very obviously blown transistor. Got too hot and exploded its case. If only could identify the part I could perhaps replace it. The transistor is probably a relay driver. There's no telling if other problems beyond the transistor are present.

I have the exact same problem. In fact, my SPL-1506X is sitting disassembled on the kitchen table as I write this. There is a PC Board inside the unit with a relay that directs the motor to run in forward or reverse. My relay is fused in the reverse position. I know this because the relay's casing is clear polycarbonate. If that relay can be replaced, the SPL-1506X will be fixed, I'm convinced. Unfortunately, the relay is made in China. So much for quality! I located the part no. on the web: Sanyou SME-2110DP a DPDT relay. If you can find it(which I can't), you're in luck. Myself, I'm going to trash the unit.
