When bin was full, I emptied it only to find that my shredded no longer worked on auto, forward or reverse


Dear Sir,
Maybe, just maybe, I have an answer for you.
Somewhere on the part of your shredder that touches the bin, there is a tiny switch that touches the bin, and it is a safety switch that causes the shredder to stop working if the bin is removed.
In the shredder I have, and have had, the switch is usually plastic, and is the same color as the plastic body of the shredder.
Proper positioning of the bin to the "bottom" of the shredder is critical to it's working, as the bin presses on the switch to "close" it.
God bless your efforts.

I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!


There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

Power light comes on, but shredder does not engage when feeding in paper. Does not seem to have a paper jam. Is there a reset button?


Is there a secondary lock to prevent operation when not on the bin? Is the shredder the right way around on the bin? Is a lug on the bin broken?

My Shredder W11C stopped working suddenly both forward and backwar. The power source is O K.


if you can hear the motor working but the paper won't pull in and shred then you broke a tooth on the plastic gear. This happens when you try to shred too much at one time. It happened to me but I couldn't find a plastic gear or the company to replace the gear. I liked the machine so I made my own tooth with DEVCON home plastic welder. With a little ingenuity and some tools you could try to fix it. Or like someone said buy a new shredder

Shredder will not operate in forward mode.


Sounds like the bin might be over full. Switch machine off. Remove top section, or open door, Empty bin. Look at shredder blades to make sure nothing is stuck in them. When sure blades are clear put back together and then switch on.

Red light and green light on but motor will not come on


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.
