Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

I have an ativa shredder model MD 1250. Became jammed on some staples. Reversed it and pulled it out but no the auto shutoff won't work Is it fixable? The shredder still runs.


Robert,
Double check that you do not still have any paper that may have become stuck in front of the sensor for the auto shutoff. If there is something in front of the sensor it will keep running.

I have an Ativa AT120DC. It won't operate


I have an Ativa AT120DC Shredder. When it is switched to auto there is dim green light and it doesn't start. If I feed paper in it makes no difference. For some time it always started up when you switched it to auto and didn't wait for paper to be fed through. If you remove the basket the Door Open light comes on. can you help?

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Shredder runs continuously in AUTO position. It appears to use a photoelectric sensor for AUTO activation. I cleaned the window once with a swab and windex. It worked for a few days but is doing it again...


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.
