Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Novi Tech paper shredder. The Model number is PS-307 B and for about a month it ran perfectly. I left it plugged in and turned on the on/auto position all the time I have had it. Now Just recently, I discovered it will not turn on at all. I have turned it off, on from both the power buttons on top and the switch in back, and still nothing works. I have turned it forward, reverse and and changed outlets what do I do?!

SOURCE: NoviTech Paper Shredder will not feed paper forward.

Solution 1 worked for me. I unscrewed all 7 screws, pulled apart the cover carefully. Beware, there are wires attached. you can lay it side by side.

The activator is the white plastic thing. You need to make sure that it sticks out and as the paper goes from the top, through the cover, it hits the white activator.

At the end of the white activator, you see it has some plastic to push on the metal strip. This engages the forward motion. You'll here a click if you test the paper going through. This click is the sound of telling the motor to roll forward.

I think it got knocked out of place when I tried to insert a CD into it. Luckily, I didn't buy another shredder because of the Best Solution in this forum. So thanks for your help!

SOURCE: Shredder motor seems jammed

The teeth on the plastic gear that turns the massive metal gears that turn the shredder teeth is probably stripped and needs to be replaced, if you can find the part.

SOURCE: Shredder not working

Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. Sensor is usually located in the center of the paper feed opening.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc1.gif board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

Try cleaning the sensors with a cotton swab and alcohol.

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.

My fellowes ps-70 shredder has a light on and it's not working


If the shredder is the kind that turns on when you insert paper, it may have an optical sensor that is dirty or blocked. Try blowing off the sensor with some canned air. The sensor is usually located in the center of the paper path slot. Also check that the bin is completely closed. Sometimes a tab on the door is bent or broken so that the shredder thinks the door is open. The tab activates a switch which tells the shredder that the door is safely closed. Fellowes has a lot of good tips on their website.

Gears are not rotating; motor works though


I guess you have made sure that the cutters are not jammed by bits of paper and card?

Looking for spare parts for a Challenge Paper Shredder model S213


Hi there. I've got the same shredder which I purchased couple of months ago so maybe it's not that olod model after all :) The problem with mine is that the small thing that sits inside and "feels" when you feed the paper and which triggers shredder to operate, has broken in to two. My hubby tried to glue but I don't see any success there. Any chances to get that spare part any where?

My shredder was does not turn on!


Less than a year old, you can take it to a service center. May be a blown fuse. Try to get the top off and check the fuse. If you are not using it, unplug it.

Paper shredder


Shredders have a light emitter and detector inside the slot where you put the paper. When the paper is put in, the emitted light is reflected off the paper, detected, and then turns on the shredder by sending a signal to the control board. The emitter/detector often has a plastic cover which over time collects paper dust. The paper dust can reflect the emitted light back onto the detector, causing the shredder to remain on. You may need to remove the top of the shredder and remove the shredding mechanism to get to the light sensor. It's also possible that the components on the control board have changed value, causing the detector sensitivity to increase. This may result in the unit turning itself on in daytime and off at night.

Need wiring diagram/info for Tech Solutions TS2550 Paper Shredder


Hi,
Thank you so very much for going into so much detail about my shredder that wouldn't pull paper thru it. You were SO NICE to do all that & I sincerely wish I could send you a picture of the wiring. HOWEVER, I threw it away months ago when I got no answer to my problem. Guess I'm not patient enough :-) I sincerely appreciate your reply and wish that I could help you out. If I still had it, I'd just mail it to you :-)

It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.
