Make sure it is properly plugged in. Set switch on machine to on. Try putting a sheet of paper through. ( Some machines don't seem to be on until they actually have something to work on).

Only goes in reverse when paper is inserted


Shredders have three settings
Manual forward
Manual reverse
Automatic

Better shredders also have sensors that turn on when paper is inserted. It sounds as if your is in reverse and auto start.

Does not shredder middle of paper


First, make sure you turn your power to the shredder off. Take off the top of the shredder and turn it over. Is there paper stuck between the shredding wheels? I had to carefully pull this paper out with a set of tweezers. Be careful, as the shredding wheels are very very sharp!

Good luck,

Paul

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.

Shredder keeps running on auto


Unplug it and check to see if theree is any paper caught in the Start switch. Turn it Off, plug it back in and start in the Reverse mode. Then turn it Off and set the swich for On - shread.

If that doesn't work unplug it and find the start switch trip wire, Toggle it a few times with something thin - don't push too hard. You can also spray the switch the canned air used to clean keyboards. Plug it back n, start it in reverse then move it to shread.

Unit no longer shuts off when on "Auto" setting. I have to use this switch manually to turn unit on and off for every use, and would like to restore original functionality.


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....

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

I purchased Shredder Model BD-S600 on 5/6/11. This was to replace another Black & Decker Shredder that I had for only a few months also. Today, when i attempted to turn shredder on to shred some...


If it's like my BD-S600 your motor is already burned out!! Same thing happened to me with this shredder after 3 months of minimal home use. I had to call them and pay $13 to send shredder back to them to have a new one sent to me, and I have already been on the phone with customer service due to problems with the new one after 5 minutes of use! Good luck to you; I know I will NEVER purchase a Black and Decker shredder again! My last shredder (a Brother) lasted 8 years with no problems and I really miss it!!

Paper got stuck. machine will not turn on.


First, check that the machine is properly seated on the waste container. There is a switch that prevents the shredder's operating if it isn't properly seated. Will your "ready" indicator light up? If the machine will not turn on at all, try something else in the outlet the shredder is plugged into. If there is no power to the outlet, you probably tripped the breaker. Reset it and proceed as follows. Turn your switch to "off". Unplug the shredder and flip the shredding head upside-down on a stable surface. Remove anything that was previously hanging down. Gently remove stuck stuff, keeping your hands in a safe position. Place the shredder head back on the waste container and plug it in. Most all shredders have a reverse on them for just this occasion. Work the machine reverse and forward, until it releases. When in reverse, remove whatever the shredder gives up, with the switch set to off, of course. This should get you back in the shredding business. Next time you're at one of the office supply stores, get some shredder lubricator sheets. Using these from time-to-time lessen the incidence of jams.
Enjoy! --W/D
