Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The sensor for the top cover appears to be faulty causing the shredder to not function. If the top cover is closed with force there is no cover open light and it works. Also if the machine is powered off then back on with paper in it will also work. Once the top cover is opened to load paper the cover/drawer open error is active again.

if you answer no to the following question, then I do know your solution: Q: When you unplug the unit immediately after your action of "When those paper complete the shredder does not turn off."...and then plug it back in, does the shredder STILL continue to operate? if no, then the solution is to disassemble the feeder unit and manually unclog the paper sensor.

There are three reasons why:
1. paper particles or oil are still causing the optics to think you are inserting paper. Remove cover and clean thoroughly!
2. Optics are misaligned.
3. Optics are defective.

You'll have to unplug the machine, then remove the screws front (inside door or cabinet) and rear to remove the top cover. Insure that the safety cover arm which contacts the microswitch is not broken or the microswitch is out of adjustment.
