Had a ideal i35 boiler fitted 7 months ago. The grundfos ump3 pump has failed 4 times and has been replaced by ideal tech. The pump has failed again,ideal refusing to attend. Any advise appreciated.


ideal are required to fix under warranty any part that continually fails
(check with a lawyer)
as it is a possible design error or improper installation, the company is obliged to rectify the problem
while grundfos is the preferred installation pump and the problem is related to the pump the company in an effort to ensure customer satisfaction should be making an arrangement to fit a different brand of pump or rectify the cause of the pump failure
as I stated --discuss the matter with the company and a lawyer to resolve the issue

HOW DO I MAKE A FELLOWES C-480C SHREDDER PUMP OIL


Hi Wendy, push and hold down the "bulldog" button and then hold down the "forward" button. You should hear the pump pumping oil. May take15 seconds before you hear a hum. If you do not hear anything, the pump may have to be replaced. Clogged oil nozzles or tubes could also cause a problem. This is a common problem and Fellowes re-engineered several components to fix this problem. You can google Fellowes to get a phone # to find an authorized service center. good luck.

How do I oil the shredder


Found this that should help:
Oiling Instructions for Fellowes Shredders
Why and How Often: Regular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders is a necessary maintenance step to help keep your shredder functioning properly and prolong its life. Several factors determine how often you should oil your shredder-such as the type of paper being shred, the amount of paper being shred, and whether you shred only occasionally or continuously for long periods of time without stopping.
  • As a general rule, it is a good practice to oil your shredder each time you empty the wastebasket, or once a month.
  • Micro-cut shredders need to be oiled more frequently-ideally after every 15 minutes of use.
How To: Press and hold down the reverse button on your shredder. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps across the cutters while gently squeezing the oil bottle. Continue to run the shredder in
reverse for another 10-15 seconds.
What to use: It is recommended that you use Fellowes Oil to oil your shredder. You may also use other oil designated for shredder use.
Do not use any oil or lubricant that is dispensed from an aerosol container.
Do not use any petroleum-based oils or lubricants. Use of such oils or lubricants will void the warranty on your shredder and could cause serious injury, as they are fire hazards when used with electronic devices.

A piece of lament is stuck in machine


Assuming you are referring to laminated material, the only practical action is, with power disconnected, turn the mechanism upside down and pick out the remains carefully. I sometimes resort to tweezers and a lot of patient picking to fix things. Be cautious about selecting materials to shred. Despite manufacturers' claims, office shredders do not handle laminated materials well. Same goes for credit cards

How to Oil a Paper Shredder shredder_oil.jpg Paper Shredder OilProper shredder maintenance is required by all paper shredder manufacturers to maintain warranty coverage. Perhaps the most effective way to care for your shredder is to oil the cutting heads regularly. Why should I Oil my Paper Shredder?

The frequency of shredder oil applications is determined by a number of factors. First of all cross cut shredders must be oiled more often than strip cut shredders do. A cross cut paper shredder will require regular applications of shredder oil while a strip cut can go for a longer period of time without decreased performance. Secondly, paper shredders that are used more will need more lubrication. A paper shredder under heavy usage will need oil about once every four hours, while one under normal use will only require oil once or twice a month. Most manufacturers recommend oiling the cutters once every 30 minutes of accumulative shredding, but an easy way to remember is just to oil your paper shredder every time you change the bag. The type of material as well as amounts fed at once can also effect performance and lead to the need for oil.

Directions
You should only use specifically designed shredder oil to oil your paper shredder. This oil is designed to lubricate precision heat treated shredder cylinders, and any other lubricant or oil will void the manufacturers warranty. So don't use WD-40 or the like to oil your paper shredder.

Shredder oil can come in both liquid and aerosol varieties. However, the most common is liquid shredder oil.

The first way to oil your shredder is to spray or squirt lubricant into the opening and onto the cutting heads. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly onto the cutting head in a fine stream. This is done through the paper entry throat. Take 1-2 seconds to oil from one side of the opening to the other. Turn the machine in reverse for about 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to all parts of the cutting head. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil.

The other, and perhaps most common, way to oil your paper shredder is illustrated in the image above. Simply spread a small amount of shredder oil onto a piece of paper in a zig-zag type motion. Make sure that you spread the oil over the entire sheet. (NOTE: you don't need to soak the paper in oil, just ensure total and even coverage.) Feed this sheet through the shredder and then operate the machine in the reverse mode for a few seconds. This will make sure the oil is dispersed throughout the shredders cutting cylinders. The final step is to shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil. You may want to repeat this procedure depending on the results, and is recommended for up to three applications to be assured of thorough oiling.

You should oil your cross cut shredder on a regular basis. If you are shredding a small quantity such as only 50 sheets a week or if you are using a small shredder, then you should oil your shredder every other day. If you are shredding a large quantity such as hundreds of sheets, then oil after 30 minutes of usage or after you empty the bag.

Start oiling your paper shredder now. The shredder will run smoother, faster, and put less strain on the overall motor, gears, and bearings.

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.

I have read over and over the four-page manual for my TS-4500 shredder and I cannot find information about preventive maintenance such as oiling the mechanism and/or blades. Surely, there must be a means...


Shreddrs do need to be oiled approximately every 30 minutes or so, of continuous use. Any shredder oil will do just fine. Squirt a little shredder oil onto a piece of paper that you wish to shred & feed it through your shredder. That is all you need to do to keep it oiled.

How do I remove excess EXCESS oil from my shredder? It won't shred.


Asking why you should keep your shredder lubricated is no different than asking why you should change the oil in your car every 3,000 miles. Not only is proper maintenance a requirement to maintain an active warranty, but all mechanical parts need a little oil to help them turn smoothly and to keep them clean. Applying shredder oil to the cutting heads inside a shredder lubricates them so that they efficiently destroy documents sheet after sheet. Fortunately, you will find that taking good care of your shredder is less expensive, faster and easier than caring for your car.
Every time you shred a sheet of paper a fine dust made of tiny paper particles is produced. This dust collects in the cutting assembly of a paper shredder. If allowed to build up, this dust will compact until it completely blocks the smooth turning of the cutting head. Shredder oil will actually break up the compacted dust lodged in the cutting assembly, allowing the parts to move and push out the softened dust.
Shredder oil is specially formulated to eliminate oil residue on the cutting head. Other oils, like WD-40, will attract dust, further clogging the cutters. When lubricating your paper shredder, only use oil specifically designated for shredder use or risk voiding your warranty and further clogging your shredder.
The frequency with which you should oil your shredder depends on several factors: frequency of use, shredder capacity, cut size and type of paper. Your shredder will need more oil the more you use it, the more paper you shred at once and the thicker the paper is that you shred. Also, shredders with smaller shred sizes require extra oil. A 1/4" strip cut shredder used only one to two hours per week will only require a weekly oiling. A cross cut shredder, on the other hand, requires oil after every half hour of use. If you remember to oil your shredder every time you change the bag you'll be in good shape.
There are two fast, easy ways to oil a paper shredder:
The first method involves applying the oil directly to the cutting head. Shredder oil is packaged either in plastic squeeze bottles or aerosol cans, designed for easy application. No tools are required, just aim the bottle directly at the cutting head, through the paper entry point, and apply a fine stream of oil from one end of the cutter to the other. Run the machine in reverse for 10-15 seconds until the entire cutting mechanism is coated. Finally, shred a few pieces of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters.
The alternative method requires streaming oil onto a piece of paper. Do not soak the sheet in oil, but cover it evenly from edge to edge. Shred the oiled sheet of paper and then run the shredder in reverse for 10-15 seconds to allow the oil to coat the entire cutting mechanism. Finally, shred a few sheets of paper to remove any excess oil from the cutters. In any case, run a couple of sheets of paper through the shredder after oiling to remove excess oil. procedure may be repeated up to three times to ensure proper lubrication.
If you take a few seconds once a week or every time you change your shredder bag to oil the cutting mechanism in your paper shredder, you'll maintain your warranties and keep your shredder running smoothly and efficiently document after document.
