Shredder will not work

I have a 20634 EC Dahle Shredder and i just installed a new oil pump. Everything went fine until I went to turn it on. It will not work now. It is run by a mother board, so there is no where to jump the switch to find the problem. Am I missing something? Is there a fuse or link that needs replaced?

Re: Shredder will not work

If the oil tank is full you just need to disconnect the control cable for it and run it a bit without it...
after you plug it back in the oil level sensor should have reset and should run just fine... sometimes it takes a few attempts though.

The bin full light is illuminated and it beeps. We have changed the bag so that it is empty and the sound and light are still on. Help please.

Paper shredders are messy. Fine paper dust covers everything, get a can of compressed air and clean under the shredding wheels. Looking up from the bottom check for any sensors that might be plugged.

How do I get my hands on a technical repair manual for a Dahle 20606EC shredder with all the specs, part #'s, troubleshooting, etc..

Good luck with that! Getting tech repair manuals is like finding gold. Call Dahle and they may sale you one. Otherwise just open the unit up, find what the issue is and then call them. Dahle's are phenomenal units and virtually never break down. What is the problem? If you're simply trying to pre-empt an issue then I say don't worry about it.

Dahle 20396 thinks bag is full alarm

if you are using the auto oiler that alarm doubles as the low oil alarm. The low oil mark on the tank is not accurate. This frustrated me for weeks until I finally called Dahle and that's what they told me. JUST ADD OIL... I know its that easy!

Paper full warning on constantly

The most common reason for a false reading, where the bin full light comes on but the shredder basket is empty, is simply dirty sensors on the bottom side of the shredder head.

CD Stuck

Does the reverse function work? Also, you should be able to remove the plastic cover over the CD shredder to see if you can take the pieces out. You may need tools so I would unplug the unit first.

Does it make a difference which shredder oil I use? There are so many. I have a Tech Solutions cross cut TS8000.

You can use any kind of shredder oil. They are all priced so differently, I use fellows brand for my royal shredder & it works just fine.
