    Thanks! I will give that a try as I had noticed the time it took to shut off had seemed to increase. The optic sensor would seem logical.

If you oil this shredder, and this specific model uses electric eyes to start and stop, chances are they (optics) are dirty. Clean the optics (the sensors on top and bottom of the infeed)by performing the following. 1.Disconnect power. 2.Clean sensors with a soft cloth or cotton swab. 3. if you have canned (compressed air) blow out the same area. If this doesn' t correct the problem, you have a defective PC Board.

Why does my paper shredder make a clicking sound when I try to shred a piece of paper?


Try putting a piece of paper in enough to start it running, but not so far as to go into the shredder. See if it will run for a minute or two. Sounds as though it may be over heating.

Won t shut off


Blow out the sensors with some compressed air, Using a can of compressed air, look for the sensors that detect the paper and give them a blast or two, then try it, it may take a couple of tries.
This may also be a good time to lubricate the cutting heads, if it is a good machine with metal heads a light oil applied to paper then run through the shredder will pass the oil onto the heads.
A shredder oil or light oil like 3 in 1, these usually have a narrow nozzle to limit the oil flow, draw lines, do a picture or spell your name on the paper with oil and shred it. You have just serviced your shredder.
If it is a less expensive shredder with plastic heads, shredding a couple if sheets of waxed paper will pass the wax onto the cutting heads reducing friction.

Hope this helps.

WON'T STOP SHREDDING WHEN ON AUTO


You will probably find some shredded paper is blocking the sensor in the middle of the paper feed slot

Jammed paper shredder motor stopped won't start


Had this sort of thing happen to me also; sort of. Did you check to see if the shredded paper level alarm has been triggered in the pull-out catch area? Sometimes it forms a pile that trips the alarm before the catch is full. Sounds simple, but check it out. Also check to make sure it's plugged in! I've done that several times, even to the point of calling for help! Did you know the technical help desk always asks if the machine is plugged in first!

Constantly runs when on auto and won't accept paper


Shut off power and turn the shredder upside down. It is highly likely you will find shredded paper jammed in the mechanism, especially near the center where the feed sensor is located. A thorough cleaning should get your shredder operating again

Paper shredder does not turn off. I have to open


I'm assuming that it automatically detects the presence of paper... .

By opening the drawer you're disabling it from the safety switch. (they dont want you to shred your fingers from the bottom) There is probably a small piece of paper holding the feed sensor down.

If you're confidant, unplug the unit and take apart the plastic cover. Do not remove anything inside. Look for the small switch between the blades which 'feels' the presence of paper. There is probably a small piece of paper wedged between the housing and the switch which would fool the unit into thinking it has paper that still needs to be shredded.
Carefully put your unit back together and happy shredding.
This may happen often, remember what you did!!!
