How do you clean the "eye" on the Aurora AS1219CD? I heard that may be the problem with it not taking paper. But I am not sure how to go about it.

The best way is to take a q-tip and alcohol and rub the eye if you are facing the shredder it should be on the front but that is th only way we have to do it

SOURCE: Is there a way to remove the grey piece(credit

You can remove power to gain access to the shredder mechanism. You may be able to pick out the remains of the credit card. Shredders, even "heavy duty" ones do not do well with credit cards and other plastic material.

Dont wont to do if shredder is under warranty. If not, you will usually see a sticker staying that if you remove this sticker you warranty is voided. There is a screw that holds the top on. If you take the sticker off your warrranty is voided so beware.

The shredder doesn't turn off

Try cleaning the eyes in the middle where you insert the paper they may be dirty. If cleaning dosnt help then the eyes or pcb inside could be defective.

Don't take paper

Does it have power.???
Does it run in reverse at least.???
If your shredder has "eyes" where you insert the paper they may just be dusty...try cleaning them with a soft cloth.

How to replace valve cover gasket on 4.0L olds aurora

What you want to do is find the valve cover, take the 8 bolts i believe out of the valve cover. You may have to pull the valve cover off with a small flat head screw driver to release it from the old oil and grease thats on the motor. It gets pretty caked on there from the heat and what not. Once the valve cover is off, make sure you dont get any dirt down in the motor, this is very crucial. You now have to get the old gasket off the valve cover. I recommend you getting the old stuff off with a paper towel and a razor blade. Make sure its 100% clean as your can get it. Make sure its off the motor and the valve cover.
At this point you take and bolt the valve cover on with the new gasket and your finished! Hope this helped!

Motor works only in reverse direction only.model sh1524cp

Your shredder thinks it is jammed ... did you clean the electric eye or the small lever - does it work freely?

Can you use canned air to blow dust out of the top? Have you cleared any paper stuck at the bottom of the unit?

Try these things - I have had occasional success with this kind of fiddling around.

The shredder will not cut the paper. the motor

I just had this problem. I took the screws out from the bottom of the shredder and opened it up, take a look and see if there are any cracks around the frame that surrounds and holds the shredder in place, if so you have to glue the crack so the frame is stable again.(the crack/break in the frame prevents the paper from cutting because the teeth on the shredder are not fitted properly). hope this helps.

How do I lubricate a Aurora AS702MX shredder?

two ways, first take a light oil (3 in 1) and scribble a pattern on a piece of paper and pass it through the cutting heads do this a couple of times, this can be done as you shred just put a little oil on papers you are about to shred from time to time.

second, if it is a light duty machine, with plastic parts, then pass some waxed paper through the shredder to clean and lube the heads, this also works for your 3 hole punches.

Won't shut off after shredding.

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 :-)
