Question about Office Depot Ativa DQ60M Shredder
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?

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.

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
