Don't know what kind of shredder is is but most have one or two eyes or switches that tell the shredder to start and also tell is to stop. these eyes get paper dust on them and will not shut off , or they could be bad eyes or switches. Use can air and blow down in center of shredder gears and see if it solves problem. Also shredders shuld be lubricated with shredder oil every now and then....
When shredders only work in reverse, it typically means that they are really jammed up. First thing to do is to UNPLUG the shredder. Then, take a look at the underside of the teeth. You will most likely see a bunch of paper sticking out, if so, try to remove it. I would advise against using your fingers, though.
As a last resort, get someone who is mechanically inclined to take the head unit apart to remove the jammed pieces. Unfortunately, once this happens, it often spells an early demise for the shredder. I have gone through three of these things for the very same reason.
i had one similar to this i took the cover off and cleaned the sensors in the electronic eyes also there are two relays on the main board that get hung up just tap them. i cleaned real good the machine seemed to work ok after that
I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2. Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)
