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.........

Ccs/5 shredder wont power on

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.

I have an achiever heavy-duty crosscut shredder that I purchased in 2002. Since that time I have actually used the shredder around 5 times. The shredder turns on, shred for about 2-3 mins., then it stops....

does it finish the sheet of paper then shut off , or does it stop halfway thru the paper?

unplug the unit , open it up and see if theres staples or junk jammed in the cutting wheels/gears

there supose to turn off once its finished with the paper and turn back on when the next paper is inserted , theres a lil sensor that turns it on and a limit switch that turns it off

Squealing Shredder

you need to spray lubricant down the paper shout. the cutter wheels are dry. They make a shredder oil but you don't need that just a light what oil. wd40 is to heave. If the noise is still there then it is in the gear train and will need to br serviced.
but to much oil will make a build up of dust also it's a catchy 22

The fuse has blown and we need a new fuse for it. We need the fuse number that is on the tip of the fuse. Do you know where we are able to purchase them from?

Is it on a 20 amp circuit? Check to make sure that it doesn't have a grounding problem or even the plug could be reverse woired.

Noisey Shredder

Have you oiled the blades? When was the last time it was serviced? There is an awful lot of paper shredds inside the unit. Motor bearings need lubrication. Gears need grease, etc. Put about a dozen drops of light oil directly down into the cutter left to right every half inch. I have used vegetable oil in a pinch.
