SOURCE: p400c-2 fellowes shredder only runs in reverse no

I just had the same problem. I called the 800 # they asked for proof of purchase to replace if 1 year old. I did not have it so...... I took it apart ------ unpluged ! Only to find all gears are fine, service dept. said gears cause this problem, not so with mine. Remove top by pulling of base remove 6 screws on under side, played with the switch inside a bit and, it now works, do not know how long but for know it does. My opinion is the relay gets dirty, and you cannot clean it without talking whole thing apart.

Why does my intimus 602 shredder only run in reverse


This applies if Reverse is forward, and forward is running in reverse. If someone worked on it they may have reversed the wires from the motor to the board. There are four wires from the motor, of the four one goes to MZ on the board, another one goes to MV. If you swap these two wires you will be running in the correct direction again.

Infoguard shredder SX-102 runs in reverse but not forward


Shredders have a manual switch for reverse..... if you have tried this, then there could be a possibility that the switch has dust of paper in it and the contacts not making contact for the reverse cycle... or the switch is faulty. If you have any electrical knowledge, you can do a test with an ohm meter for continuity in the reverse mode.... or remove the switch and blow it out with an air compressor. If you mess with electrical, ALWAYS REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE SHREDDER!!!
Good luck.........

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

If it wont run forward but does run in reverse you may have lost the PCB inside.... contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance and pricing.

Does the machine even run in reverse???? Have you ever oiled the machine.???
Put some "shredder oil" onto the cutting blades while it is running in reverse then try running it forwards.
If you can hear the motor running but the cutting blades dont turn you will have to open it up to see what is broken.

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing
