Aurora as1010tx shredder won't run unless

For some time now it would stop working until it got jolted in the holding case, or switch on/off quickly. I opened the activate switches, they are fine.I can get it to run as long as I short the orange(power from circuit board)& blue wire(one side of led)& depress both of other two switches,I think it may be on circuit board but have no specs on checking it. If any one can help or know where to get circuit specs?

You will probally have a tough time getting specs on a pc board from the manufacturer you will probally have to find a service dealer in your area that works on shredders or you will probally need to purchase a new pc board from the manufacturer if they still have one available or you may be able to find one online if you know the item number for a pc board replacement.

Its not working and shredder wont turn on

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while. Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

How do I remove the shredder head case of an Aurora AS890C? I have removed the 6 screws (it's unplugged), but it still won't come apart. It quit working, so I don't know if it's jammed or...

There are 7 screws. You missed the one hidden under the small silver label.
Once you take it apart, don't waste your time calling Aurora as you voided your warranty and ability to get help from them. That happened to me.

My shredder makes a thumpping noise then stop. Inreverse it does the same thing. My model is Aurora AS701X-MS The motor runs but it does'nt shred the paper unless you shake the paper then it stops.

It sounds like one of the drive gears has broken. I have contacted this manufacturer before and was told that they do not make replacement parts for their machines. If it is less than a year old, they will replace the unit but that is about all they will do.

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.

Aurora AS1010TX Will run forward for 1/3 of paper then into reverse.

I'm going to say it needs oiling. Try oiling the gears and cutting blades. You can buy paper shredder oil at Office Depot or Office Max.
