Hi,

Your shredder is not dead It's just the (On and Off) switch not working properly (loose contact). Try to disassemble it and take a look if it's in the center location to make contact with On or Off positions.

But remember to clear the bin and remove any particles thats causing the clog or jam manually.

Thanks

My ativa 12 x-cut paper shredder runs for 1/2 sheet then stops. how would you identify problem and fix it


The sheet detector may be malfunctioning. Your shredder may have to be cleaned to restore proper operation. Mine gets clogged periodically and has to have the bin removed so the entire shredder can be turned upside down to perform dental hygiene on the teeth. Paper shreds even get jammed in the spaces between the teeth. Flossing doesn't help!

My shredder worked fine but now when I turn on it does not stop running and does not shred paper ?


Most shredders will have a shred and a reverse setting. Is it running in reverse? Has the bin been emptied? With the power off, you can remove the bin and manually pull excess shredded paper jammed in the cutting heads -watch out, sharp metal . Once cleared run single sheets for the first minute to help clear rollers.

My shredder is not working does it have a fuse somewhere


The shredder may be so clogged, with plastic for example, that the motor overheated and went into thermal shutdown. It also is possible that the input sensor is blocked. My experience with shredders that have been used to shred any type of plastic or plastic coated paper is that they are a complete mess inside.

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..

How do you remove the top to see the gears in a Royal 16CDX cross cut paper shredder. The overload message is displayed, and I don't know how to get it unjammed.


a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!

I was shredding paper - less than 8 sheets - and I didn't realize the receptacle was full. The shredder jammed and reversing it does not help. How can I de-jam?


When you unplug the shredder and take the top off, pull any jammed sheet through. Empty the receptacle. Then try putting the top back on and plug in and test it.

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.
