Ccs/5 shredder wont power on

Our old faithful CCS/5 Achiever shredder stopped working recently. When plugged in a fain hum can be heard. I opened up the unit and motor is free but doesn't seem to be getting power thru the switch from the mainboard. I hate to trash the unit its VERY heavy duty and has been a work horse for us. Can anyone advise?

Do a very thorough inspection of the cutting blades. I have found that just a shred of paper, that one would think would not be a problem, can in fact make your shredder act as you describe. How old is it? Depending on age & the heavy usage you say it has had.... it could very well be good old made in USA obsolescence. Wish I could tell you more. Without a multi-meter;(Ohm Meter). & manual to know what power is getting from point A to point B I cannot advise beyond this. Sorry.

Testimonial: "Thanks for responding Steve. I took the top off and the unit will motor thru by hand with no problem. Also, since I posted this I determined that some voltage is getting to the motor when the switch is on. It appears the mainboard that supplys power to the motor thru the switch is and is outputting lower voltage than it should. The mainboard looks fairly simple with a transformer and a relay and some other components. A tag on the motor indicates it's rated for 120v so I assume the motor should be receiving 120v when switch is on. I have a pic of the mainboard but am unsure if or how I can pot it here."

SOURCE: I need a brown fuse

If you are looking for a fuse you must specify the type, get the specks from the brown fuse such as:
1. current rating e.g. 13A (very important)
2. Potential Difference(PD) e.d 110V (very important)
3. Wattage e.g. 300W (very important)
4. Temperature rating (if indicated) e.g 120 degrees Celsius.
With these ratings you are able to find your fuse in an electronic shop

Fix this shredder


The unit is probably clogged up with a bunch of shredded paper. Unplug it ! Clean out the paper using fingers and a knife to get most of the paper clips and paper out then plug it in and run forward and reverse. That's what i do and it works every time.
