Question about Quartet gbc GBC 10-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredmaster 2260X Shredder

1 Answer

DISCONNECTED WIRE I have a gbc shredmaster cc185 that I had to take apart to remove a metal jamb. I fixed the jamb but now I pulled a brown wire loose from the wirring harness. The brown wire is attached to the circuit board center mounted above the slide switch. What connector does this wire go to (color/color and where do they go to). Thanks Frank Ross

I clipped all the zip ties to free up the harness and physically inspected every connector till I found a connector that seemed rather loose and came off with minimal force. I then gathered the 3 wires and install a #18 wiring nut. the shredder is fully functional again.

1) Opening the shell and identifying the heater unit (its at the end of the metal pipe) You will have to unscrew the circuit board2_bing.gif and metal pipe to access the unit.
2) In the heater unit there are live (x2) neutral and earth wires.
3) The first live wire you need to identify is the one coming from the mains. It will be going into a water flow switch covered by a white cap. The wire is only clipped in, so pull on it with some force to remove it.
4) Next you should remove the other brown wire from the clips, so that you have a small section of brown live wire no longer attached to the clips. This piece of wire is no longer needed, but keep it in a safe place for if you need to reverse the process if this does not work (it should)
5) Now attach the original brown live wire that came from the mains into the clip which you just removed the small brown wire from. (not the part that was going into the white cap)
6) This should bypass the water flow switch and should allow the filament to heat. 7) Then reassemble the pod the way you disassembled it and the water should now heat up when attached to the spa.

My electric door locks keep unlocking and even if they are unlocked they keep trying to unlock

Well, something is broken, somewhere. Start by removing batteries from remote key fobs, ALL of them, then pull apart each lock control switch, testing after each one is disconnected...the the ares of suspect is wires going through the door jambs. Starting with the drivers door.

If you find wiring damaged at the door jamb, you must replace the wire, rather than repair, so that there is NEW wire completely through the jamb area, anything else fails really fast, due to the flexing... At least cut damaged wire inside the door and inside the vehicle at kick panel...

Motor hums will not turn but will turn by hand

Could be as simple as a loose wire on the main board or surrounding electrical. Could be the start capacitor.
