My VF 1012mx paper shredder won't feed the paper in order to shred it. Green light is on but nothing happens when I put the paper in.


Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

Rick,

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

Thanks,

Techsolutions TS-8000 runs continually when switch is on. Normally you need to feed it to start is in the on position


I have a TS2500 and it behaves in a similar fashion. It sounds like you may have a paper jam keeping the paper sensor switch turned on. The first thing to do is make sure that the container that collects the shredded paper isn't full. Everytime I fill mine up I have this problem. Emptying the bin and pulling the shredded paper from the bottom of the unit usually allows it to automatically shut off. If that isn't enough, make sure that you don't have a paper jam in the cutter rollers. The most important thing you can do is make sure the unit is unplugged before doing anything with the shredding mechanism.

Hope this helps.

It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.

The only solution with respect to safety is to order a new switch from the companuy that manufactures/sells this shredder, and mount it according to the manufacturer/sales company's instructions.
If you want to bypass the safety of the machine, just keep the cables (should be 2, + eventually a ground cable) open, or shorted, depending of the machine's configuration. Remember that this is on your or your collegaues own risk!! A shredder can easily bite your finger off!
