Question about Aurora Electronics AS1018CD Shredder
Will not automatically shut off after it is through shredding. Have run in reverse to ensure shredders clean. Didn't help. Have to manually turn off.
I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2. Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)

I had this problem. I unplugged the shredder removed the top and turned it upside down and got out the compressed air gas can you normally use on your computer keyboard and blew plenty of air inbetween the teeth where the electronic eye should be. Turned the top over plugged it back and it is working great! No more problems!!

I had the same problem just removed the paper and it still ran. put it in reverse and it literally blew up and burned my hand be careful. I had it couple of months. Just happen tonight. there is no recalls on it so that is good.

Either it has some paper stuck in the electronic "eye" or there is a switch that detects paper that is stuck. Unplug it and dig around a tad you may find the problem easily!!
