Xerox 24S shedder, does not stop running

The shredder does not have a on off switch. It is suppose to not run whenb set at auto. However this no longer happens (after a paper jam) but I completely cxleaned it out.

What is your suggestion (other than keeping it unplugged the whole time to get the machine to go into sleep (off) state.

Try blowing out the paper sensors with some compressed air, it may be some debris around the sensor. If the sensor has a mechanical arm, check to see if it is out of place due to the jam.

GBC CC195 paper shedder not working. Dosen't do anything when inserting paper.


There is supposed to be a switch that is activated by the material inserted into the shredder. If it is stuck or broken, then only the manual buttons will operate the motor.

As a shredded user myself, I took mine to an office machine repair store and they fixed it for a very reasonable price (and they gave it a good cleaning at the same time.)

I have a Ac-MC1000 and I have cleaned the sensors and oil the shredder and cleaned it out and it still runs contantly when on Auto?


If you are sure you have cleaned the sensor and there is nothing triggering it (debris of any type) I would try running a couple sheets of paper halfway through it and then reversing the out and see 8 it clears up the problem. If it does not then the likely solution will be to replace the sensor

Shedder OM99732 in automatic mode will start and shred when paper put in, but will not shut off. It also appears there is some type of plastic covering the screws so I am unable to remove the cover. It...


It sounds like a piece of paper is blocking one of the two photo cells that detected when a piece of paper (or a CD / DVD) has been inserted for shredding. The (six) screws that secure the top are accessible from the bottom of the shredder unit after it is removed from the paper bin. Be careful: There are three different sets of wires connecting the top control plate to the bottom motor and cutter assemblies. It is not too difficult to get inside the shredder "head" if neccessary.

Runs continuously when in the on position.


there is paper jammed in front of the sensor. it was likely caused by feeding too much paper into the shedder at one time and now a chunk of shedded paper bits it blocking the sensor from seeing that the shedder is clear

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

Shedder one works


This is an issue with the paper feed sensor which may be a electronic eye or a mechanical switch if it is mecanical you may just have to jiggle the switch a few times, occasionally paper may get stuck behind it not letting it activate. If it is electronic you have bad sensors or bad pc board and you'll have to contact the manufacturer for further info.

Ativa DQ 120dDoesn't run in auto


I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

Shedder Doesn't Work


Are you sure the saftety switch on the left side of the shredder is in contact with the small metal latch on the inside left side of the basket. The machine won't work unless the ssfety switch is pushed in.
