Aurora Electronics AS1018CD Shredder

Hi Just empied the basket and now can't get it to run. The light goes on showing it is lined up with the safety switch but still nothing. Put it in reverse and still nothing. Is there another switch I need to find or a sensor maybe stopping the motor from running. All help appreciated. Thanks Frank Shredder Misaligned light permanently on and machine not working anymore

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pcAurora Electronics AS1018CD Shredder - 1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

Shredder wont shred


My boss has a shredder that will not run unless the bin is exactly centered in the bottom of the unit. There is a safety switch inside there, and a magnet to activate it. Make sure nothing is interfering with the bin or the shredder fitting together.
On other units, there is a slot that must match up with the shredder. It will only work one way. See of the shredder will turn around and put it on the bin the other way.

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

Does not activate when paper inserted. Runs ok in reverse indicator lights are ok


I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. Don't open your shredder to repair it yourself because it will void your warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee.

My AS101bCD Aurora shredder will not shred paper, green light on paper in nothing, will happily go in reverse, what can i do


Sounds like a problem with the switch. Replacement is the most likely option, switches cannot normally be repaired.

Why is it not shredding


Most of the shredders have a protection switch that is cutting the power while the top is removed for emptying the basket. This is a safety feature to prevent from catching your fingers in the knife by accident during the operation.

This switch is located under the top portion and is desactivated by a pin or a bump located on the basket. Make sure to align it properly and you will be able to use your shredder again!!!

good luck

Guys,

Here is an update of the problem:

Using the shredder for continuous extended periods causes the motor to overheat in which case the motor just shuts off automatically.

Leave it for a while to cool down and resume normal usage - this should make it work again.

There is a switch inside the shredder that needs to be activated by a notch in the waste basket. Take extra care to aligh the notch with the slot otherwise the shredder will not work.

No theres the fix!
