Auto feeder switch will not work. Staples SPL-1201X

I have taken apart the shreadrer motor. there is a little pressure swithch that is trigger when the paper is fed in. I hit the switch and it worked for a short time. I was going to bypass the switch to operate from the main power switch, just like the reverse switch does. Do you know of any other way of fixing or replacing the switch?
Thank you for your time.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

Well, despite the manufacters warning label I choose to take the shredder apart and found that one of the plastic gears was broken. Hence the motor runs, but the blades do not turn. The thing I didn't understand, the there are metal gears and plasic gears...I can only imagine that the plastic gears at one point or another are going to give. I would suggest not to void the manufacters warrenty, take the shredder back, and get one that is built a little stronger. Hope that helps.

The optics are OK!
There is a small electromagnetic sensor on the cuttershaft which senses the input load.
I could be maladjusted or defective.

SOURCE: Light is on. Reverse works, paper fed won't trigger the shredder

If you are pushing a button to make the shredder run something doesn't sound right.

See if this makes sense, Generally shredders will use a photo switch or a micro switch to detect the paper. If you are pushing a button it sounds like you have a micro switch. The switch should have an arm that would extend into the throat of the shredder and the paper would hit the arm activating the switch. From your description it sounds like the arm is missing or bent out of the way of the paper. If you can see the paper actually hitting an arm that would activate the button then the arm may just need to be bent a little so it moves farther to operate the button

Hope this makes sense and helps

Make sure there is no paper blocking the sensors. Otherwise you may have a bad sensor or switch.

I have a staples spl-xc200d paper shredder. It runs on auto is that normal


If I understand the question then yes it should run on auto when the paper is inserted to be shredded. I have this shredder as well and mine is always set to auto.

I have a Staples Shredder model SPL-TXC6A (serial 0809026807), which I have been using a lot lately. The auto and reverse buttons will not function, & neither will the forward button.


If you have used it a lot, it may have tripped the thermal fuse. Normally, these reset themselves. One thing to make sure of,, is that the safety switch under the machine is firmly on the pin in the basket under it.

This is a light duty shredder, you can only use it for two minutes!

6-sheet, light-duty, up to 25 uses/day
Runs 2 min on / 4 min off

When the trigger is off the motor stops and starts in quick succession until the trigger is pulled again


When the trigger is off your pump is overloading your engine this would be because the unloader is not doing its job try and change the pressure output of the pump this may unstick the unloader if not it may have to be taken apart.

Looking for a diagram or schematic for a senco fp18


I have a SENCO FinishPro18 that I inherited from my son when he died a year ago. It has worked fine till now. It does not shoot a nail when depressed against a board and I pull the trigger. I don't hear air leaking, but it seems there is little pressure. Having taken apart the head, then the base, it all seems in good shape. I have not taken apart the trigger assembly, as the removal is a total commitment. Thoughts? I could use some help.
