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

I recently bought a Staples Shredder Model #SPL-TXC152A & has worked fine up until now. I emptied the bin as I have previously & bow shredder will not turn on.


There is a bin interlock switch that has to be closed for the shredder to shred. If the shredder mechanism is separate, look for a slot on the underside.

Check operation of the bin interlock inside the area where the bin fits. It may be damaged/defective.

Interlock switch


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

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.
