Question about World Office Products Papermate PM-1550CD Shredder
I put something in to be shredded. The shredder shreds fine but doesn't shut off. I have to open the drawer to shut it off.
I'm assuming that it automatically detects the presence of paper... .
By opening the drawer you're disabling it from the safety switch. (they dont want you to shred your fingers from the bottom) There is probably a small piece of paper holding the feed sensor down.
If you're confidant, unplug the unit and take apart the plastic cover. Do not remove anything inside. Look for the small switch between the blades which 'feels' the presence of paper. There is probably a small piece of paper wedged between the housing and the switch which would fool the unit into thinking it has paper that still needs to be shredded.
Carefully put your unit back together and happy shredding.
This may happen often, remember what you did!!!
