Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Just stopped...no power lights...nada. Paper is emptied. Is there a reset button
Shredders have a small tag next to the cutter wheels that move when you insert paper to shred. This tag is easily jammed or damaged during operation. It is normally about the middle and will be positioned between two blades. If this is not moving when paper is inserted it will not switch the machine on. It is the same switch that wwhen jammed by paper will not switch off the machine after paper has been shredded.

yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

Their are sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. Good chance one or more are dirty, blocked with paper shreds or just bad. Clean with compressed air and lightly moistened cotton swab.

Note that the sensors that tells the shredder to stop are underneath the unit.
Pull out the tray, put the unit on the side and you'll see two places where there are two flat-head phillips screws holding the optical sensors in place (no need to unscrew them). Just wipe the visible part of those two sensors with a rag.
The sensors that are readily visible on top of the unit tells the shredder when to start.
