How can I operate the equipment safely?


Just a few I can think of off the top of my head .

Do not over feed shredder - too thick = bad
avoid paper clips and staples going in
Avoid neck ties scarfs near shreder when other end around a neck
Avoid loose clothing near device that can fall into device.
Avoid plastic going in shredder
Make sure waste bin is not full before and while using device otherwise can strain motor.
Do not put water in device or wet paper
Do not operate near water or in rain
do not run shreder on wrong voltage and frequency check voltage from power point matches voltage and frequency required by shredder
do not put tree branches in shredder if designed for paper shredder
do not put cardboard in shedder

If paper gets stuck in shredder use reverse button and remove and try again with less paper . Do not forced shredder to drag paper through it.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Fellowes Paper Shredder PS-79Ci power switch not working -- will not turn on!


Have you looked at the shredder blade to see if anything is still there? Turn power off, check shredder blade, clear anything stuck, put back together, turn power on and try again.

Shredder stops - red light off


Some shredders are great for thicker paper. If you put a thicker piece of card through, it should activate the switch located in the middle of the shred blades. The paper might be too light to push it forward. Also, if you click the feed catch beyond it's operating position, this can also stop the shredder with no lights.

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.

Today I bought a Fellowes shredder #W10C. The instructions show an on-off button on the back of the shredder. There is not one therefore the machine does not work


the machine has switch on front that has an I O R
I think there is also a lock out switch. the machine will do nothing until you put the switch on the I position and insert a piece of paper, then is will start up. O is the off position and R is for reverse.
good luck with this.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.
