Question about Intimus 702 SF Super Fine High Security Paper Shredder

Intimus 702cc pilot lamp issue

I own an intimus 702cc. The pilot lamp is on and continues to blink. I have cleared the cutting heads and it will not reset. Is there some way or some kind of button to reset the shredder.

    Yes, it has an automatic oiler attached. I have also checked the fuse on the circuit board and it appears to be ok. The lights light up and the one continues to blink representing the motor is overloaded. I have cleaned the cutting heads, so there is nothing preventing it from turning.

Add more oil to the automatic oiler (I'm guessing a Bijur model with a minimum/maximum line.
When it gets close to the minimum it has a feature that will not allow the shredder to run. If this doesn't solve the problem, it probably needs to be reset. I can help you do this too!

    You never acknowledged filling the oil reservoir but I'm guessing you did by your response.

    Follow these procedures carefully. If this doesn't correct the problem then a Main PC Board is required. Good Luck!

    1. Machine plugged in and power is off (gray pushbutton)

    2. Open Door

    3. Push and hold the reverse (red) button in.

    4. Push and release the power (gray) buton to turn machine "on".

    5. "Jam", "Basket Full" and "Power" LED's will light up for approximately 2 seconds.

    6. After 2 seconds, the "Jam" and "Basket Full" lights begin to flash alternately.

    7. Release the reverse button.

    7A. (cross cut machines only!) Reach in to the wastebasket area of machine and actuate the basket full flap switch (rear inside of cabinet) for approximately 2 seconds.

    8. Close door.

    9. Only the "Jam" LED is left flashing.

    10. Interrupt the light barrier with a single sheet of paper. DO NOT FEED THE PAPER INTO CUTTERS.

    11. The motor should run in the forward direction.

    12. Remove paper from light barrier. The motor should stop. The "Jam" light stops flashing. The adjustment is now complete.

Intimus 280 shredder noise

The 280 is notorious for buildup of paper in the cutting cylinders and strippers.
If you are technical, unplug from wall, disassemble top cover and clean all the debris. Check nylon strippers (white plastic) for damage.
