    Used needle-nose pliers to remove chunks of stuck paper from between the teeth... motor couldn't move, not even make a sound. Now it is working again.

You will need to clear the jammed paper using tweezers from between the rollers. Make sure the sensor arm in the middle of feed opening is not stuck and moves up and down freely. If not you will need to give it a good soak with lubricant to allow any stuck paper to soften and loosen. Once cleaning procedure done unit will be good as new

Repair of a Staples shredder EPS-1200X


Unplug it from the wall unit. Check to see if there is any tiny piece of paper stuck in the machine, if there is you can use
tweezers to pull the small pieces out. Then you can put it in reverse and let any paper that my be stuck in it come out.
Make sure that there is no paper caught in the teeth at all or it still might not work.

My Executive Machines EPS 1200X shredder works in reverse, but does not shred.


there should be a forward/ reverse switch that is used to unjam paper being shredded. check that
if it is automatic then check for paper stuck in the shredder causing the reverse action.

Does not auto shut-off anymore?


Automatic feed switch jamed with paper. reverse and forward several times may help. Otherwise turn it over and pull paper out of the bottoms to clear the switch jam.

My EPS-1501X has photo sensors that stops the motor from running when the paper reaches a certain height. How does this regulate the overflow?


From what I have seen on mine, there are three sensors: one to detect if the door is open, one to detect when the unit is full, and one to detect when material is fed.
As for mine, the unit would not start when it was fed. Once I opened it, I saw the photo sensor was missing a screw. I realigned the bezels and added the screw. However, once I reassembled it, the unit still had the same issue.
Now, I suspect that it is the control board. I have no time to get into that, but it does not look too difficult.
I searched the internet for support, but there seems to be no company presence available. So, I think I am stuck manually triggering and stopping the motor.
It is an amazing shredder otherwise and I would not even consider replacing it. At least, not until the motor fails.
From what I have seen inside, I doubt that will be anytime soon...

Executive EPS-1501 X Shredder automatic sensor doesn't turn off


Do not use any aerosol based or petroleum based products in your shredder as this could cause a fire. 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.
