Infoguard shredder SX-102 runs in reverse but not forward


Shredders have a manual switch for reverse..... if you have tried this, then there could be a possibility that the switch has dust of paper in it and the contacts not making contact for the reverse cycle... or the switch is faulty. If you have any electrical knowledge, you can do a test with an ohm meter for continuity in the reverse mode.... or remove the switch and blow it out with an air compressor. If you mess with electrical, ALWAYS REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE SHREDDER!!!
Good luck.........

Runs reverse auto


From your manual!

In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the waste basket; insert waste basket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

The shredder was paper jammed


Hi,

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.

Follow instructions to oil your shredder;

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three time.

Regards.

Shredder jammed


For any jammed shredder..try the following.. pull backwards on the paper while you switch the machine into reverse. Try not to tear the paper as if there is nothing to hold onto then you can't help the motor.
If this dosn't work then you will have to take the top cover off(after unplugging of course.) and the try to force the paper backwards out of the machine by turnings the cutting blades or gears in the reverse direction.

It will not grab the paper; need to press forwared


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

JAMMED SHREDDER


if you have reverse, run reverse.
if you don't have reverse, you will have to disassemble the drive shaft/cutters and clear manually

Paper is stuck in my shredder and the reverse button doesn't even reverse it out. Please help what do I do? staples mail mates shredder'


turn the shredder off by disconnecting the plug from the socket find a flat instrument that will not damage the blades and try and manual move the blades. I would advise using thick gloves whilst doing this to prevent any cuts or bumps. You will also need to lubricate the shredder for it to move freely, find some good machine oil or shredder oil and lubricate this may also help in the process of freeing the jam,


Good luck

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.
