SOURCE: 240s4 KOBRA: Will switch on but wont swich to reverce or shred

You have possibly lost the PCB inside the machine. If you are capable you can take the top cover off(Make sure its unplugged.) With a multimeter you can check the motor...normally black, red,blue wires.
Black is common...should read about the same between black and red and black and blue. If you have a short cct in either direction the motor is faulty. Check the motor befor replacing the PCB. ...A bad motor will just blow a brand new PCB.

SOURCE: the shredder will not accept any paper, the green

This is a very simple device: the motor that powers the shredder mechanism is controlled by just 2 simple commands - a manual button on top of the case and a sensor. The manual button has a reverse function to allow for the removal of debris an/or jams or if you changed your mind. If the shredder goes constantly in reverse then that manual button is stuck on reverse mode - move it until it gets unstuck.
If it's not fixing this way then you will have to either return it (if it's still in the warranty - it should be, it's only 2 months old and the warranty should be 1 year) or you must open the top case, access the button and either replace the button (if you can find an original one) or bypass it completely - you will have to plug and unplug it instead or add an on/off button on the power cord.

SOURCE: Shredder jammed; was able to clear by reversing,

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. Don't open your shredder to repair it yourself because it will void your warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

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

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

So i put in 9 or 10 sheets to shred and it has jammed. I know, i know yet it won't reverse or go forward the blades are stuck, I got out as much paper as i could and it's frozen. please help me!


Hi,
The only thing left to do now would be to take the bottom cover off... then take apart the assembly and pull out one of the blades to get the rest of the paper out...then reassemble the machine...
Hopefully you have not totally ruined it...

Techko shredder model #SH4205PD. The shredder stopped working. After unpluggung it and sliding the switch back and forth a couple of times it worked. Now it has quit working again. what coulf be the...


The micro switch referred to is to triggers from the presence of a piece of paper in the slot when on 'Automatic'. If this is stuck in the closed position it will easily be verified by placing a piece of paper in the accepting slot on the top of the machine. If it turns on it is stuck in the closed position. These shredders obviously get quite dirty and may simply need cleaning. Be Very Careful when working on any shredder! Also. the slide switch while basic in design has a number of wires on 8 poles and could also be the problem. As well if you these machines are protected by a thermal cut-off circuit if you overworked it give it sufficient time to cool down and reset. These are the most probably things to look at however, more in depth Dx may be necessary.
Good luck.

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred


Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Paper getting stuck once shredded


As a test try shredding into a small box or even the cabinet itself with the bag holder and bag removed. Just to see if these are causing the problem.
The bag Full switch is activated by an arm which is pushed up by the pressure of the shredded paper in the bag as it fills.
When a sheet of paper is shredded, after the trail end of the paper goes past the "eyes" the machine should still continue to run on for a few seconds to drive the shredded paper out.

Switcheson fine but does not accept paper


Does it run in reverse???? Does the motor work.???
If it runs in reverse then the motor is probaly OK....does your machine have "eyes" that automatically start the shredder when the paper is inserted??? if it does then they may be "dirty/dusty"...try cleaning them ; if that dosn't fix it then you may have defective "eyes" or defective pcb.
