My shredder is showing the bin is full when it is empty - how to I fix it?


Depending on the shredder model, there is a sensor of some kind telling it that it is full. The two possible solutions are to unplug it and plug it back in, and to try to find the sensor and do what needs to be done to make it not active.

Hp 9050 laser jet stacker error


Probably just a bad sensor or dirty sensor causing the issue.

Stacker or stacker/stapler output bins

For the 3,000-sheet stacker or 3,000-sheet stacker/stapler, the output bins are the upper bin (face-up) and the lower bin (face-down).

The upper bin (face-up) is the top bin on the stacker or stacker/stapler. This bin holds up to 100 sheets of paper in face-up order as they exit the printer. A sensor causes the product to stop when the bin is full. Product operation continues when you empty or reduce the amount of paper in the bin.

Lower bin (face-down) is the lower bin on the stacker or stacker/stapler. This bin holds up to 500 sheets of paper and can stack or staple jobs. This bin is the default output bin.

1. bin full when bin is empty means that the bin control sensor is dirty or need to be replaced. But since your having problems with water over flowing also i would bet that your machine needs a good cleaning. is you water full light on or off? if off and water sump try is full then you need to pull water sensor out and clean or replace it. if water sensor light is on then you need to replace water inlet valve.

The water empty indicator keeps flashing indicating we need to empty it BUT it is empty !!!!Now the aircon won't work We emptied a lot of water however now it keeps beeping a warning,the compressor shuts...


I am NOT aquainted with the Maytag Portable AC..... But There has to been a sensor that tells the unit that the water bin is full...... If there is any moisture on the sensor and touching a ground probe then even though the bin is empty the sensor is still making a connection to ground. If you can trace out the wire that goes to the sensor you can unplug it from the board till it dries out or you replace it..... Only if you do make sure you empty the bin often or you will have water every where because the unit won't shut off if the water bin is full..... Hope this helps

How do you empty the drawer


You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin. Work the bin out a little at a time to get the paper out.

Full bin light is always on!


On most shredders the full bin sensor is actuated with a plate just under the cutter head. When the bin gets full the paper builds up and pushes the plate back.
Be sure to unplug main power before during any service.
Try wiggling the plate back and forth to clear out any backed up paper.

The empty basket light stays on all the time


Try cleaning the bin full sensors. located on both sides of your machine, inside the bin,under the cutter head. If that does not solve problem, you need to replace bin full sensors.
