How can I operate the equipment safely?

Just a few I can think of off the top of my head .

Do not over feed shredder - too thick = bad
avoid paper clips and staples going in
Avoid neck ties scarfs near shreder when other end around a neck
Avoid loose clothing near device that can fall into device.
Avoid plastic going in shredder
Make sure waste bin is not full before and while using device otherwise can strain motor.
Do not put water in device or wet paper
Do not operate near water or in rain
do not run shreder on wrong voltage and frequency check voltage from power point matches voltage and frequency required by shredder
do not put tree branches in shredder if designed for paper shredder
do not put cardboard in shedder

If paper gets stuck in shredder use reverse button and remove and try again with less paper . Do not forced shredder to drag paper through it.

Sherder also cus off on shreder has no cutting power &no suction

Hi - Shredders don't have suction, but if the blades have gone dull, it can't pull the paper in because it can't cut it. Try one sheet or even half a sheet.

The other possibility is that you are not putting the paper against the paper sensor or the sensor is brokern or blocked. This sensor is usually in the center of the shredder slot. Test it by putting a piece of paper a bit down and seeing if the "on" light comes on.

If the blades are dull, it is probably cheaper to get another shredder on craigslist or staples. I don't know, but am assuming this is a small home office unit.

If the sensor is not working, you can try to clear it.

Investment in repair depends on investment in the scanner. Tell me more and i'll try to research it a bit.

Hi I have a Aurora AS1512X it was working fine until I emptied the basket. It only goes in reverse now. Nothing lights up when I press auto for forward.

I was having the same problem with my shredder. Always make sure your shreder is not under warranty before you open it because once you open the shredder it voids the warranty with Aurora! I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

My shreder does not work, it is not jamed, it is pluged in, the green light is not on, and it does nothing.

After unplugging my shredder, I turned it upside down and in the area of the shredder mechanism there is a slot that has a little red lever in it. I moved it and tired again and the light came on and the shredder worked. I think it is like a circuit breaker -- we have been having lots of lightning storms and my shredder is not on a surge suppressor.

I have a Fellows Powershred ps 60cc and removed the shredder top to empty the shredded documents. When I put it back on, the red light will not go out and it will no longer work. It was working perfectly...

the shredder has a safety switch that closes when the unit is put back on the basket. check under the cutter head for the hole that has the switch and check your basket for the acuator put together so they will line up

Paper jam. Ready lite comes on but shreder will not start shreding

Common problem with paper shreds blocking the sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. You may have to remove the top of unit to properly clean. When removing top, be very careful with the short ribbon cable. Lift top slowly and then reach under and disconnect from main board. Once top is off, you can cycle motor by hand and try to remove shreds with needle nose pliers. Of course, disconnect power first.

I have a SX102M paper shreder that wont shrede

It's the paper sensing microswitch. Wire a small toggle switch and drill a small hole for it on the far right side of the top housing. Just remember that the switch has to be turned off when you are finished shredding or the motor will keep running till it burns out

Shreder will only go backwards

I have a Fellows OS-11Cs shredder that suddenly quit operating. It would run in reverse and when auto mode was selected an audible clicking noise was emitting from a relay on the pc board. My initial thought was that I had overheated the unit since the shredder had been operating perfectly up to the point where it stopped working but that didn't seem to be the case after the unit was allowed to cool down.I cleaned all visible paper shreds from the cutters(with the shredder unplugged)that were visible and then sprayed the cutters with a very light lubricant (3 in 1 oil) I then operated the shredder in the reverse mode for a few moments and since then the shredder has operated flawlessly.I hope this is of some assistance to others with a similar problem.
