There is a photo cell or switch that detects when it is full, this may be covered by a scrap of paper or paper dust. Make sure the shredder is unplugged and use a flashlight to look for the photo cell and use a small thin brush to clean it, If you clean it and it still indicates that it's full the photo cell or switch may have gone bad and will need replacing.

There are also sensors under the shredder head to indicate when the bin is full. You either have a defective sensors or a dirty one (clean with air).

Have the unit serviced by a office machine technician. This sounds like there may be a problem in the gear drive, which you will not be able to access or repair.

SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING


look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

The empty basket light stays on all the time


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.

Basket full light on


without seeing the product, there are 2 (two) things to check.
First, unplug the shredder and go underneath where the bin full flap is. Sometimes paper debris gets stuck between the flap and switch. Check to ensure the switch is not out of adjustment. you'll have to remove the top cover to perform this. Otherwise, your PC Board is defective.

Because your shredder shred almost to dust level. you may have paper back up inside the machine. you will not be able to see it unless you remove the head and open the cover. Or your main board could be bad. You have one main board that controls your shredder.

At this time, the machine maybe reading as full because the paper backup inside the machine.

you have few screws that holds the base and the top cover.

Good luck.

email me if you have problem

This is known problem with Hsm125...

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


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.
