I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

Therer should be a tab hanging down that senses when the paper height trips it.

Blow into the sensor with canned air.

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.

SOURCE: office max shredder, says bin full but its not,

I had the same problem. I found that the sensor on the shredder is light sensitive. The viewing window in the bin was letting too much light in and was triggering the bin full light to turn on. I covered the window with a piece of paper and then restarted the shredder.It worked fine after that.

When bin was full, I emptied it only to find that my shredded no longer worked on auto, forward or reverse


Dear Sir,
Maybe, just maybe, I have an answer for you.
Somewhere on the part of your shredder that touches the bin, there is a tiny switch that touches the bin, and it is a safety switch that causes the shredder to stop working if the bin is removed.
In the shredder I have, and have had, the switch is usually plastic, and is the same color as the plastic body of the shredder.
Proper positioning of the bin to the "bottom" of the shredder is critical to it's working, as the bin presses on the switch to "close" it.
God bless your efforts.

Destroyit 5009 Shredder No power to the oil pump.


Investigate the operation purpose of the Oil Pump. Did you measure the voltage across the terminal or observe that the pump was not operational. It must have an auxiliary function that is not related to main operations. Investigate the purpose of the Oil Pump and deduce what would make it operate then check that switch if their is no voltage measured across the pumps terminal when it should be operating. This deductions may help lead to the problem and a solution.

Sorry, I need a parts manual for a cross cut 2600 shredder

We have a destroyit 2602 cross cut shredder, when we put the paper to be shredded in, the shredder would go on automatically, now that does not hapeen. we have to manually press the on button.


The paper sensing switch lever has bent or broken or the switch is faulty. Check between the wheels about in the middle of the shredder to see if you see if the little plastic finger. If the finger is visible and can be moved, the switch is faulty. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG IT BEFORE DOING ANY INVESTIGATION.

DM15C stops after 4 seconds, open bin light comes on


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!  :)
