Hi Mary. Many of these devices are for home use only. Commercial devices expect to get significantly heavier usage and are built to handle it.

Your device has likely been used so much at one time that it has begun to overheat and shut off to protect it from permanent failure. Given enough time to cool off - it should start functioning again. There may be an issue with the volume of paper that has been inserted at once time - that resulted in a jam. The jam may have to be cleared before the unit will work properly again. Some shredders have a reverse switch that can help back out a jam. If you must poke the jammed paper with an object, you should unplug it first.

Good luck!

It means you overheated it and you probably fried it if it doesn't come back on after it cooled down.

Invacare m51 runs out of power to soon. Green power light never goes to amber just runs out of power to soon warning light never goes to amber. just runs out of power


This is most likely a case that the controller/computer(the box that the joystick plugs into down inside the chair)is placing the chair into what is called a "limp-home" mode. It automatically senses something seriously wrong with the chair and starts cutting the power to the motors, such as overheating. If they are still getting hot, it will shut itself down completely, and you can restart after all cools down, but you have a serious problem on your hands. This usually happens when a chair is loaded near or past its maximum weight, and say you try to drive it up a long incline....motors will overheat and it will slow down, then shut down. If it is doing it on a flat surface without being heavily loaded, you have motor problems or controller problems.

Auto shut off hot


A faulty transistor or IC that has failed, it probably overheats before any other device. You should shut the amp down when it happens, then feel carefully around for the hottest part. I would replace that. Or you can power the amp back up wait till it acts up, then spray that hot part with Servisol Freezer spray. If it comes back on, then you know it's faulty. If not try another part, with the spray, only one at a time.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

It makes a clicking noise when i turn it on and nothing comes up on the screen then it stops and the power light flickers.


something is obstructing the fan. if it doesn't spin up to speed, it'll shut down so it doesn't overheat. check your fans, and replace it if necessary.

The overload light comes on after I cleared the majority of paper that was stuck in the shredder. I cannot get it to work


Most shredders have an overheat safety shutoff. Once hot, it'll shut off and can be used after a few minutes of cooling down.
