There are a couple of reason why A shredder will not turn on.

There is a safety switch that makes sure the shredder is attached to the base. Make sure this makes contact and nothing is keeping the switch from closing.

There is an overheat cutout switch attached to the motor. This should automatically reset after the motor cools off after overheating.

If not then the last thing to check is the fuse.

Paper got clogged in shredder and now it won't run


Hopefully there is a reverse switch, see if that will unclog.
Possible the overload tripped a circuit breaker on the machine. If so reset and try the reverse switch.

How to reset royal 15mx shredder? it continues to run when put in the auto position.


Hi,
I see that the unit runs when in Auto position.
First make sure you turn the machine OFF then see if there is anything in the way of the shredder that gets detected by the sensor.
That can be one reason why it keeps on running when in Auto.
To reset turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall outlet or power source then hold down the power button for at least 5-15 seconds then plug it back in then turn or power the unit back up.
Still make sure that there is no paper debris anywhere in the way of the sensor.
I hope this helps.

Blue light comes on.it will run in reverse but not foreward


Try to reset the shredder.---- Toggle the On/Off switch at the back few times times.Then see if it gets reset.-------- Toggling it on and off to reset the shredder. Make sure to pull out the paper bin while you toggle the power switch on and off a dozen or so times and then put the basket paper bin back in place. When you power the unit back on the forward button should work again and the shredder should feed paper through properly.------ Another procedure is Using the power switch in the back, power on with the blue button and keep press forward till it worked. ------- Turning the off/on switch multiple times mostly helps. ------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My fellows jbo1 jamed and then stopped running is there a reset buton?


Chances are it's over heated.
Ensure the wastebasket is empty then move power switch to the REVERSE position. This will reverse the jammed paper out of the shredder. If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between REVERSE and AUTO (l) positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through the shredder. If the shredder jams in reverse mode, move the switch to AUTO (l), depress the manual forward button located on the center of the shredder head and allow to run for five seconds. If jam does not clear, move switch to REVERSE again and allow to run for five seconds. Repeat this process until jam is cleared. If necessary, turn off shredder and use care to grasp the paper and carefully pull out to clear jam. Once cleared, move switch to AUTO (l) to continue shredding. The jamming may be happening because the cutting cylinder needs to be oiled. See oiling instructions below.

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

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

Will turn on, run in reverse, but will NOT shred...


First try unplugging the power cord for ten minutes and see itf it reset.

Many model also have a reset button inside, find it and keep it pressed if the first solution did not work.
