SOURCE: Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse

Do you hear the motor moving in both directions? I just had the same problem with mine. On mine, you can hear the motor moving in both directions but it would only move the shredder teeth in reverse and the teeth would not move going forward. I took the unit apart and found out that the gear right next to the motor shaft was rounded out in the middle. The solution would be to get a new gear or gears if you can get them. Make sure you inspect all the gears to see if there is a lot of play. You might have to replace more than 1 gear. What I did on mine, was take a brass tubing that was just a little larger than the shaft, drill out the center of the bad gear and press the tubing into the center of the bad gear. This took up the extra play and my Tech Solution TS8000 is working again. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at macgyver69@netzero.net

You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: Fellowes P600C-2 Motor runs in reverse, but not forward

Take it apart and clean the switch with compressed air.

Be careful when you put it back together that you don't allow the wires to touch the fan.

You also have to make certain that the small plastic teeth that seperate when you feed paper are aligned properly.

Good Luck

My Staples shredder will work in reverse just fine but it will not move forward, rendering it unable to shred anything.


They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

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.

My Black & Decker Shredder #BD-61 all of a sudden does not work. I used it tonight, but the next time I tried it does not work. The lights come on in both positions, but


On some shredders when both the forward and reverse LEDs are on it can indicate either a jam or a full receiver bag/ container (the area that the shredded paper is fed into).
Try the following steps:
  1. ) unplug the power
  2. ) open up the shredder (see 1 on diagram)
  3. ) empty out all the shredded paper (see 2 on diagram)
  4. ) check that the shredding jaws (both the entrance and exit) are clear of any shredded material (see 3 on diagram)
  5. ) put everything back together
  6. ) plug power cord back in
  7. ) force the shredder into reverse (see 4 on diagram)

Hopefully you should hear your shredder motor running. If it is switch it to automatic and try shredding again

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

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.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Shreds in reverse only


I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

Shredder won't shred any more.


I have the Infoguard SX100M Axeus, sold by Staples.
Only the reverse was working, UNPLUG and open back cover, the paper mechanical switch was working fine, red side switch, the gears and fuse were all ok, I think something on the circuit board was fried.

I switched the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when I switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred. Its working now, only in reverse.
