There are two ways around this:

One way is to take the broken contact from the bin and tape it into the shredder so that it keeps the switch depressed.

Another way (what I did when I broke mine) is to turn the shredder motor upside-down, take the lid off (7 phillips-head screws), cut the 2 wires that go to the switch that gets pressed by the contact and twist them together (with a wire nut, or crimp it if you have a crimper). No more switch needed, and no need to purchase another bin.

Hope this helps,

-Wes

Interlock switch


Common problem. I would complain loudly to Staples. If you are handy, you can fabricate a new piece. Good luck!

Staples SPL QW1200 shredder - how to disassemble it to get full access to blades?


remove the bin, remove thr screws that hold the bottom on (to get the cord free) then flip it over so its sitting on top remove the screws around the side walls to the top and remove the top shredder. with the shredder still up side down there are 8 screws around the outside edge (in the 1/4 holes) remove those and you can seprate the housing from the blades and motor. in the one i have the blades in the center are bent and the guides are broke i am looking for replacement parts or another for spare parts good luck i am a automotive tech, and i hate to throw things out just because ond small small part is broke but the hardest thing is finding parts. we live in a world where we are in couraged to reclye but we throw so much away because it is almost imposible to find parts or when you do the replacment parts cost more than a new one. sorry for the rant but i like to see people trying to fix things

The red color light is always blinking on laser jet F4200? May i know the error plz?


Is there a waste-bin in this printer? I had the same issue with a Samsung printer, and there was a toner-waste bin that I needed to replace by an empty one. It also could be a waste-bin of the staples or warning to refill the stapling unit.

What is the interlock for a staples shredder


if you look at the underside of the shredder, you will likely find a pressure switch that is actuated when it sits on the stock bin, either modify it to touch when on the new bin or secure it so it is depressed all the time. This should allow it to operate on the replacement bin.

Hope this is of some help.
