The paper sensor is stuck, actually a pretty common problem with many auto shredders. Basically the sensor for auto shredding thinks that there is still paper in the unit so it won't shut off. This can easily be caused by shred debris. Shooting some compressed air into the unit may help but usually it requires a bit more effort. Sadly, these guys can be quite hazardous to repair so I would not really suggest trying to open the unit unless you really know what you are doing.

How can I get my Seville desk fan to stop squeaking? When I called their toll-free number, they said their fans don't squeak. Talk about a company being in denial!! Their only suggestion was to take it to...


Remove the guard, remove the fan blade. Lay the fan on its back and drip 4 drops of 3 in 1 Oil down the spindle. Turn the spindle by hand about 6 turns and leave it overnight with the spindle upwards. The next day, run the fan with the blade off and see if the squeaking has stopped. If it has, replace the blade and guard.

If it is still squeaking, it is the bearing at the other end of the motor. That one is not quite so easy to lubricate and usually the motor would need to be fully stripped down, cleaned and lubricated.

My chain won't run on my 240 eseries when I try to release it ti cut


The hand guard on the machine should control the chain brake, you should be able to firmly pull the guard fully back to the top hadle to load the brake, if the saw has been run for any time with the brake on there may well now be some melting of the plastic cover, this will mean a new brake complete required, you will have to lever the brake off the saw as best you can, it will be tight because the band will be clamped around the drum, this should only be done as a last resort if pulling the hand guard back does not work

Why won't the chain mechanism turn


It may be because the chainbrake is on, grab the hand guard and pull it firmly back to the top handle until it clicks and loads the brake.

I have tried numerous times to undo a nut on my Black and Decker circular saw without success. which way do I turn the nut to undo it and take the circular saw blade?


Am I correct that this is a hand-held saw? Want to make sure of the terminology.

If so, the bolt holding the blade has right hand threads -- meaning it loosens by turning counter-clockwise.

Is there a blade lock? Are you using it?

Won't turn over


RESET THE GUARD AT YOUR LEFT HAND. THERE IS A GUARD AT THE TOP OF THE HANDLE THAT KICKS WHEN THE CHAIN COMES OFF.THAT SHOULD DO IT. GOOD LUCK.

Change blade


OK first raise the cutting head. Loosen the screw that holds the guard in place and move out of the way. Find the spindle lock on the right hand side of the gearcase and turn blade by hand (UNPLUG SAW FIRST) until it locks. With the wrench supplied with saw put it on the blade bolt and turn it clockwise to loosen, it has left hand threads, remove outer flange and blade. Let me know it you need any more help
