SOURCE: Our 0S - 11 cs shredder has stopped working. The lights are still on but it will only work in reverse.

Make sure there is no paper shreds blocking the sensors on top and also underneith the cutters. Use a cotton q-tip to clean dust from sensors and maybe compressed air.

My Executive Machines EPS 1200X shredder works in reverse, but does not shred.


there should be a forward/ reverse switch that is used to unjam paper being shredded. check that
if it is automatic then check for paper stuck in the shredder causing the reverse action.

Dynex shredder only works in reverse


If your shredder is jamed with paper, the centre of your machine has a switch which is plastic. If there is paper under this switch it will prevent it from being pushed downward, it will not shred paper, it will only work in reverse. Unplug your machine and clear the paper jam so the little plastic switch will be able to go down and it should work. Hope this works for you.

Fellowes P35C works in reverse but not forwards


In forward operation, a detector senses the presence of material in the feeder and turns it on. Reverse operation is selected by switch position; no sensor is involved. I would bet that if you remove power and turn the shredder upside down you will find bits of shredded paper clogging your shredder, particularly in the center area where the detector is located. After thorough removal of debris, you should be back to normal operation

Why doesn't OfficeMax OM99732 shredder work on Auto?


My shredder would not sense paper being inserted and the sensor could not be cleaned. So "Auto" no longer worked but the manual reverse DID work. I opened the thing up, reversed the polarity on the red and black wires on the connector for the main drive motor and VOILA!!! I can use my shredder in manual mode by switching it to REV. Be mindful that this keeps the motor running until it is switched off. This can heat the motor and cause failure so I limit my shredding to 60 seconds then give it a rest so it will cool down. Also there is no emergency reverse so watch your fingers and neck ties.

Hi I have a GBC Shredder, made by swingline, model GLX2030. Since this morning the shredder didnt stop! Normally the shredder work only when we put paper into...but today we have to push the ''ON'' button...


There is an infeed sensor that isn't being made for auto on which is just a simple flipper switch and if it doesn't work it is because there is paper jamming it. Unplug it and turn it over where the blades are and see if clogged up and if so than put back on and reverse it and than forward again until it releases if it has a reverse ,reverse it. If no reverse unplug and use a narrow object to clear from the bottom side

JAMMED SHREDDER


if you have reverse, run reverse.
if you don't have reverse, you will have to disassemble the drive shaft/cutters and clear manually

Doesn't work going forward only in reverse


sounds like you have a sensor problem. is it automatic reversing on jamb? if so sensor is defective, or there is a bind causing sensor to reverse only, a bent shaft could cause that
