SOURCE: Paper Shredder will not shut off when in auto mode

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.

SOURCE: Turns on when paper in slot, but won't pull it through to shred.

must disassemble feeder unit. you will find many bits of shredded paper to pull (push) out with a long narrow tool like a crochet needle.

SOURCE: SHREDDER WILL NOT POWER UP. NO LIGHTS, NO POWER

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

SOURCE: Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working

Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

If the blades rotate then the paper should go in...just be sure the blades are turning in the forward direction and not in reverse.Also make sure you lubricate the blades with shredder oil.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Shredder Green light won't come on and won't shredd. won't go in reverse either.


I had the same problem with the same shredder. The unit uses mains voltage which is rectified to DC and eventually feeds two 12V zener diodes wired in series for a 24Vdc supply. These are 1N4742A (Radio Shack 276-0563), 1W parts. They overheat and will short, which you can verify with a VOM. I reassembled the unit, but recall they are away from the relays at the tail end of the large white colored power resistors, side by side in the same direction. I think Z1 and Z5. After replacing these parts, green LED and reverse, etc. will work.

I have an Ativa MD 460c paper shredder that reads misalignment. What do I do?


I have a Ativa MD 1000 that I just bought. It ran for a few minutes the first time I used it an then stopped. I turned it off and unplugged it in case it had overheated. The temperature light did not come on. I wait for over 30 minutes and tried using it again. I was able to shred a couple of sheets of paper and it stopped again. The next morning I couldn't get it to work at all. The green ready light is on but the shredder will not start. I can't tell if anything is stuck in it. How do I getting running?

I have a SX102M paper shreder that wont shrede


It's the paper sensing microswitch. Wire a small toggle switch and drill a small hole for it on the far right side of the top housing. Just remember that the switch has to be turned off when you are finished shredding or the motor will keep running till it burns out
