Testimonial: "we had it apart.While apart We interrupted the sensor light and the machine started. removed the paper to allow the sensor to make contact. After 10 seconds (approx) the shredder stopped running. (both sensors). Reassembled unit and inserted paper. shredding completed and it failed to turn off. (all for naught !)"

My Ativa HS1000 shredder has a bad switch. I must press on the basket for the shredder to start. It will run forwards or backwards without any paper in. Can the switch be repaired or replaced?

Unless this is a very high end office machine the answer is no they are no repaired in most cases just replaced. For a definitive answer contact a retailer of the product to see if the switch is available.

My ativa 12 x-cut paper shredder runs for 1/2 sheet then stops. how would you identify problem and fix it

The sheet detector may be malfunctioning. Your shredder may have to be cleaned to restore proper operation. Mine gets clogged periodically and has to have the bin removed so the entire shredder can be turned upside down to perform dental hygiene on the teeth. Paper shreds even get jammed in the spaces between the teeth. Flossing doesn't help!

Auto off does not work how do I fix this?

Check to see if the feed is clogged up. If it is, clean it out and try to shred. These machines don't last forever, it may be worn out and time to buy a new one.

I placed less than 12 sheets of paper in the ativa 1250 shredder. it's reading overload. can you help?

The problem seems to be the plastic gears and/or bearing supports. Unless it is in warranty, it's going to cost you more to repair than replace, and even then Ativa's customer service is not the best and neither are their shredders: I suggest you look at

No power to shredder, no reset button, reverse will not solve

The motor may have overheated and failed, especially if the shredder was operated at its rated capacity or operated continuously for long periods of time. The specs for these devices tend to be exaggerated.

Red light is on. Ativa Vortex HS1000, looks like a thermometer will not do anything at all. what is going on?

That thermometer light is only on when the unit is overheating. If it is not doing anything, that is a good thing!

I have an Ativa MD 460c paper shredder that reads misalignment. What do I do?

I have a Ativa MD 1000 that I just bought. It ran for a few minutes the first time I used it an then stopped. I turned it off and unplugged it in case it had overheated. The temperature light did not come on. I wait for over 30 minutes and tried using it again. I was able to shred a couple of sheets of paper and it stopped again. The next morning I couldn't get it to work at all. The green ready light is on but the shredder will not start. I can't tell if anything is stuck in it. How do I getting running?
