What model is it? Most of the time some paper shreds are hanging down from the cutter asm and blocking the sensors. Unplug the unit and reach up underneith to remove the shreds.

I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

SOURCE: shredder won't shred

They may be a compression switch on the lip where it sets on the bucket. This it to prevent it from running while its off its buckette. If this is not all the way in it wont run. Look for that clean any safty switch or buttons you find.
Slap it with your tax booklet and call me in the morning. Good luck DFD

SOURCE: office max shredder, says bin full but its not,

I had the same problem. I found that the sensor on the shredder is light sensitive. The viewing window in the bin was letting too much light in and was triggering the bin full light to turn on. I covered the window with a piece of paper and then restarted the shredder.It worked fine after that.

Staples SPL-QW120D shredder is stuck on "Bin Full" even when empty?


Check operation of the bin interlock inside the area where the bin fits. It may be damaged/defective.

Shredder bin full


Most models: 1) unplug, 2) put something down to collect paper bits, 3) lift up the shredder top unit off the bin, 4) empty the bin, 5) try and pull out any paper from the shredder top using tweezers - first remove paper that has not fed through by pulling it back out.
Often if the bin is overfull the shredder gets clogged and won't work or beeps. When unplugged, you have to carefully remove all the bits of paper from the teeth to unjam the two rows of teeth. Remedy is to frequently empty the bin.

Shredder will not operate in forward mode.


Sounds like the bin might be over full. Switch machine off. Remove top section, or open door, Empty bin. Look at shredder blades to make sure nothing is stuck in them. When sure blades are clear put back together and then switch on.

The bin on my royal cross cut paper shredder will not open . It is full and needs to be emptied. It seems to be stuck near the top. If I pull any harder I am afraid the hard plastic will crack.


Yes it is probably "over-full".... you will just have to try to somehow get it open a little and start to fish out the paper without breaking the waste bin....it has to be emptied more frequently, there is no "bin-full" indicator.

Try cleaning the bin full sensors. located on both sides of your machine, inside the bin,under the cutter head. If that does not solve problem, you need to replace bin full sensors.
