I dont have the original bin for an Infoguard SX100M. It runs if I hold it and push in the red button with a screwdriver. When I try to load the paper, the shredder doesnt grab it. Any fixes?


I can't imagine holding the red bin interlock button depressed with a screwdriver every time I wanted to shred something but hey, whatever works!

Your shredder does not grab the paper because an internal "page in" sensor is damaged, defective, or blocked by shredded residue.

The indicator light that the bin is open will not go out and can't shred


Possibly a tab on the bin door broke off that triggers the microswitch failed or the switch itself or it's mounting is failed. This is a safety mechinism. I have not looked at this model but that is the causes of most bin door failures.

What does the safety intrlock tab look like if broken?


Something is out of place; either the bin or the sensor.

Shredder won't turn on when plugged up


Shredders have a safety switch that won't allow it to run if it is off of the bin. Sometimes if the shredded is on the bin backwards it won't run because the plastic piece on the bin that presses the switch is only on one side of the bin. Sometimes if the switch goes bad, the shredder won't run.

Shredder won't shred does it need a security card?


I believe that it could be one of two problems. First of all, and the painfully obvious one, do you have the red power switch in the on position. Try moving it to different settings to see if it does work at all. If it does, put the switch back in the center position and try shredding again. If it doesn't work, then you may have a faulty shredder. (This and the following are believing that you have a new shredder and you are trying to get it to work for the first time.) Second, if you lift the unit off the paper bin and look on the bin, you will see a slight protrusion, like a "tab." When you place the unit onto the bin, this tab must be aligned with a slot on the shredder unit; the slot will have a small strip of silver metal inside, it is part of the safety mechanism. If you are using a trash bag - to make for easier shredded paper disposal - you might have to use a bit of pressure to make sure the tab makes contact with the little piece of metal. You also may have to turn the shredder unit around 180 degrees and re-seat the unit.
If it still doesn't work, call the service/warranty/support department and find out what you need to do next.

I need help in trouble shooting my staples shredder spl-qw120d, I have lost the manual. It is saying that the bin is full but there is no paper in the bin.


Therer should be a tab hanging down that senses when the paper height trips it.

Blow into the sensor with canned air.

Red light on will not run in forward


Check to make sure the shredder is sitting on the paper bin properly. Most shredders have a sensor switch that disables the unit if it's not properly seated on the paper bin.

Not feeding


usually this indicates that the bin has not been properly put in place. On the inside of the waste basket there is a plastic piece that fits up into a slot on the shredder head This is our safety interlock. If plastic tab is bent or broken machine will not run without safety interlock engaged.
