Question about Ativa Hd1600 16-sheet Cross-cut Shredder

Open Question

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.

Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

RED Light is on (left of the green light)


Reverse shredder and clean out as much paper shred as possible. Use some lube oil. Hairclipper oil and canola vegetable oil are good choices.

What is the red light next to the green power light? It appears to look like a temperature light. My unit won't run.


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.

Ativa shredder manual


I could not find a manual or support on Ativa website but I searched their FAQ. It said that the shredder basket must be fully closed and integrated with the shredder. I had the same problem. I pushed the basket firmly into place and it stopped. I believe this flashing scheme may be telling you that the shredder and basket aren't properly aligned.

No power when you push the button


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

Our Ativa HD PRO 1600 shredder will not operate because the "jam alert" light is on, however there is nothing in the feeder or the shredding mechanism. I have misplaced my manual and


SOUNDS LIKE THE SENSOR OR SWITCH MAY HAVE TRASH ON IT.
LOCATE THESE ITEMS USUALLY ON LEADING EDGE CLEAN
SENSOR WITH A "Q" TIP AND ALCOHOL. IF THERE IS SWITCH CHECK
TO SEE THAT IT IS NOT JAMMED AND WORKING PROPERLY.

TURN ON SWITCH SEEMS HARD TO PUSH ON SHREDDER


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.

GBC shredmaster 1150x shredder now runs only in reverse. And when I press the "reverse" button, the green "forward/shred" light comes on, rather than the red "reverse" light....


The first thing that comes to mind is that the switch is faulty and that one of the contacts has come loose and is shorting across the reverse contacts. There is little else that can go wrong with a shredder, so in this case try replacing the switch.
