SOURCE: Automatic switch does not shut off after shredding

These shredders have a "paper in" sensor. This is either optical or mechanical.
Sounds like the sensor is blocked and therefore "thinks" there is still more paper left, and this is why it keeps going.

Before you do anything UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
The sensor is located about in the middle and at the level of the blades.
If it's mechanical, you should see a little finger, else it is electronic.
Shine a light in the area and you should be able to spot where the blockage is.
A shot with compressed ais usually gets rid of the offending particles.

After you're finished working on it, set it back securely on the basket and plug it in.

screw a small screw into the piece in the back right corner of the basket that the shredder fits on. This will adjust to the height needed to make the shredder run.

SOURCE: Staples SPL -TXC15A Shredder on all the time

This is what worked for me.
1) unplug the shredder
2) put the selector in "auto" position. This pulls back the guard which blocks the paper and hids the sensor.
3) a little right of the center of the paper slot is the sensor. You can feel this by inserting a cotton swab in ths slot.
4) put some alcohol on the cotton swab and clean the sensor!!!!

Also the "bin full" sensors are under the shretter head. You can easily see those when you remove the head from the bin by flipping it over. I would advise cleaning those while you are at it. Mine were covered with dirt and dust.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: we have a Staples Shredder SPLTXC122A that has stopped working- no power any thoughts?

Is the shredder fully seated in the paper container, there is a switch there that must contact or the shredder will not work, it is a safety switch.

My Staples shredder will work in reverse just fine but it will not move forward, rendering it unable to shred anything.


They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

Where is the re set button on a simple staples brand paper shredder?


There isn't one Connie. There is a thermal cut out inside. There is also a safety switch in the base.

I asked you some questions yesterday which you didn't answer. I am the shredder expert, I have one in bits on my workbench. The parts inside are cheap nylon. This one shattered one gear and made a hole in the one you see.

Searched online for almost a hour and then found it on the underside of my shredder - 866-790-8026. It's a Staples brand product.

Staple stuck in shredder


First lesson - NEVER put staples through shredder. Have you been able to remove the staple? Switch all power off, and then look at blade section. If still present - remove staple - may need magnet or tweezers. This should fix the problem, but if it doesn't it seems you may have some teeth out of alignment. This will probably require replacing the shredder bar by a technician, or a new unit.

Staples mailmate SPL 727MM will not power up


Shredder refused to power on. No light... nothing.
1st step: (MAKE SURE THE THING IS UNPLUGGED FROM 120 V FOR FOLLOWING STEPS)
So, i dismantled it according to previous postings and inspected visually everything. Nothing had heated, all solderings were OK on the boards. Did few checks on the interlock drawer switch with an ohmeter: tested OK. I removed the 2 screws holding the little board where the power on switch is mounted. Ohmeter said no action across switch prongs when i push the button. I drowned the button with tape head cleaner and activated the button a hundred times. After it dried, i repeated the operation.
It cured the problem. I Dont think these kind of switches can be found... cheap stuff.
Had some problem finding a 10 inches phillips screwdriver to open the case... Electronic store had one...brand is Xcelite.
....have fun challenging those China made gizmos !

OM 99727 shredder not working


I had this same problem. This is what I did to fix it.

When I went to ShredCare.com (the recommended web site for technical support of this particular shredder), I read that 'Most models of shredders have a safety interlock switch that is activated by the basket.' Upon looking closely at my basket and the shredder, I found this safetly interlock switch and made sure to align it with the proper position within the basket. There is only ONE way to place the shredder on the basket and have this safety interlock switch activated. The switch is located on the underside of the shredder. Align this switch with the ridge on the inside of the basket. Listen carefully and you will hear the switch 'click' when in the right position. Mine is very touchy. I've even had to press in on the side of the basket while shredding to make sure that the ridge and the switch are making contact.

Hope this helps!
