My Shredder does not work

Our Shredder does not work when you push the green light button, thus it does not shred, but the stop and the backward buttons do work.

Simple cleaning may solve this. Use some compressed air first on the sensors that are located just below the opening on top and in the center. Then also may be two sensors underneith the cutter blades. Make sure the power in disconnected first. Then a cotton swab to gently wipe any residue from them.

My shredder will only work in reverse.


There must be a button on the shredder you need to push so it works forward, this button has 2 options: forward for shredding, and backward to push caught papers out of shredder.

Shredder stops - red light off


Some shredders are great for thicker paper. If you put a thicker piece of card through, it should activate the switch located in the middle of the shred blades. The paper might be too light to push it forward. Also, if you click the feed catch beyond it's operating position, this can also stop the shredder with no lights.

My shredder runs non stop, when I insert paper to shred , it stops... I push reverse, it works , pull paper out and runs non stop.......


Sounds like a bad or stuck sensor, acting as if it is always seeing a peice of paper in it. Check if you can find it and maybe it is just stuck to the on position..

Tech Solutions shredder Only powers in reverse w/ green light


Their are sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. Good chance one or more are dirty, blocked with paper shreds or just bad. Clean with compressed air and lightly moistened cotton swab.

Shredder Beeping


The motor would always turn the cutters.
You likely have a broken chain or a loose gear on a shaft. If you hear the motor running and the cutters are not spinning something in the drive is broken. Likely the chain.
hope this helps.

PowerShred C-220 will not shred automatically


OK lets try.
You likely have a photo sensor that detects the paper and it is dirty.
It is likely covered with paper dust (hopefully only on the outside)
Locate the sensor and wipe it off or just wipe the entire throat area.
WITH MACHINE OFF
Hope this helps

Shredder won't turn on


On the right side of the waste basket(as you face it) is a tab that pushes a button on the shredder when it is in place. The tab is not making contact with the button. Push the side of the basket where the tab is when you have paper to shred in it. If it begins to shred, you may have to bend the basket inward so that the tab makes contact. I have had this problem.
