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

Why does the display appear and disappear after 2 seconds of being plugged in, and I cannot get it to work?


This could be a setting for a timeout of the LCD screen.
It may be a defective product if you cannot print or send test prints.

Staples titanium shredder


Sometimes the sensor gets blocked by pieces of shredded paper. Unplug the unit and remove it from the paper bin. Turn it upside down and see if there are any "stray" pieces of shredded paper hanging on the unit. Remove the stray and replace the unit onto the bin making sure it is properly seated. If that is not the problem, try "tamping" the shredded paper into the bin and by doing so, giving the machine more room for the shredded paper. If neither of these help, refer to your owner's manual to see what recourse you may have.

Hi, when my shredder is plugged in it says "door open overheat" what door is this referring to? Also, one of the wheels is broken, where can I get a replacement bin with wheels?


The door you are referring to would be the paper door on the shredder. As for the wheels, ask someone at staples, or check for a similar wheel at home depot, and see if you can replace it.

My heavy duty shredder purchased 3 months ago has quit. Some times if you slam it down on the bin it will come on. It acts like the sensor thinks the bin is full. It is not indicating or seems to be over...


Shredders also have sensors to detect when they are off the bin. A safety feature obviously.

I'd make sure the shredder is properly oriented and sitting firmly on the bin.

I need help in trouble shooting my staples shredder spl-qw120d, I have lost the manual. It is saying that the bin is full but there is no paper in the bin.


Therer should be a tab hanging down that senses when the paper height trips it.

Blow into the sensor with canned air.

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.
