My Ativa HD 1600 Shredder is stuck on the red light when I turn it on. A little help please?
Whenever I turn on my shredder, the green power button is on. Then it automatically switches to the red light. I have tried pushing the container in all the way, but it still does not work! A little help would be awesome.

In most cases it means the shredder is full or something is jammed. Empty the shredding container. If the machine has a "reverse" position on its switch, try running it backwards to get whatever is jamming the teeth to come back out.
Most shredders have a little switch usually somewhere near the bottom which is activated by a little protrusion at the top of the collection container. If the shredder isn't seated correctly it will not run. This switch can also be faulty but it can be shorted out if necessary to test. Hope this helps
Try cleaning out the paper and debris out of the shreader and empty the waste container. Get some cooking oil and oil the blades in a right to left application format. turn it on to circulate the lubrication and turn it off and repete until all blades are coated. Then unplug it from the wall press and hold the power button for sixty seconds and then plug it back in. Test it to see if that solves your issue.
Hello, There's a switch in the back, the only benefit of using the power button is that it can be turned back on with the controller. Don't use the switch when your game is saving or anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.) Good luck...
hi, Turn it off and let it sit idle for about an hour. This should cure an
For no power and green light and red light go on, the problem is with power switch- top of unit.
After remove all screws, you need
LONG-LONG screwdriver and one short screwdriver with out handler, because few
screws almost imposable to remove. you make few holes on bottom of unit to
remove 4 screws. you have two ways to fix switch problem- 1. replace it, if you can find new switch. 2.
solder two wire to switch and make a hole on top of unit. when you need to power
unit, turn back switch on and touch two wire as switch.
The motor would always turn the cutters.
You likely have a broken chain or a loose gear on a shaft. If you hear the motor running and the cutters are not spinning something in the drive is broken. Likely the chain.
hope this helps.
On the right side of the waste basket(as you face it) is a tab that pushes a button on the shredder when it is in place. The tab is not making contact with the button. Push the side of the basket where the tab is when you have paper to shred in it. If it begins to shred, you may have to bend the basket inward so that the tab makes contact. I have had this problem.
