Question about Tech Solution TS-8000 Cross-Cut Shredder

1 Answer

Shredder overheats quickly and can only do 2 pages...

My shredder used to do 3 full buckets of shredding before it overheated. Now it will only do half a bucket and it says it's jammed every five seconds, even with only two sheets of paper (it says max 12 sheets). I used to be able to do 10 sheets or so at a time. What happened?

I run a nonprofit, all volunteer small animal rescue and this shredder is very, very important for us. It saves us hundreds of dollars in bedding each month, and we just don't have the money for a new one right now. Someone please tell me there's a fairly easy solution to this...

Sadly I wish I could.
You are in need of a new drive motor in the device.
That is the item kicking out the overheat.
Sorry it is either replace the motor, or the shredder.

Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

I emptied the bucket of my shredder and now it doesn't run. It is only about 1 year old and isn't used much.


Check you have replaced the top on the basket properly, is it the right way round? If not on properly it will not feed power for safety!

My shredder is not working does it have a fuse somewhere


The shredder may be so clogged, with plastic for example, that the motor overheated and went into thermal shutdown. It also is possible that the input sensor is blocked. My experience with shredders that have been used to shred any type of plastic or plastic coated paper is that they are a complete mess inside.

Won't turn on...


You don't say what type it is, but they usually have little micro switches fitted to ensure the power won't come on until the blade section is fitting properly to the waste container part.
If it is the bucket type with the shred part on top just make sure it rests properly on top of the bucket so the microswitch on the bottom of the shred part gets depressed.
If it's a drawer type there may be a small projection on the drawer which pushes against a switch in the body of the shredder.

The shredder was paper jammed


Hi,

Ensure the wastebasket is empty then move power switch to the REVERSE position. This will reverse the jammed paper out of the shredder. If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between REVERSE and AUTO (l) positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through the shredder. If the shredder jams in reverse mode, move the switch to AUTO (l), depress the manual forward button located on the center of the shredder head and allow to run for five seconds. If jam does not clear, move switch to REVERSE again and allow to run for five seconds.

Repeat this process until jam is cleared. If necessary, turn off shredder and use care to grasp the paper and carefully pull out to clear jam. Once cleared, move switch to AUTO (l) to continue shredding. The jamming may be happening because the cutting cylinder needs to be oiled.

Follow instructions to oil your shredder;

To keep your shredder in top condition, the cutting blades need to be oiled every so often (for frequency, please refer to your owner's manual). We recommend using Powershred® Lubricant or a vegetable-based oil (such as corn or canola) in a non-aerosol container with an extension nozzle.

Caution: Never use flammable synthetic oil, petroleum-based, or aerosol lubricants to oil the cutting blades. Some agents may combust, causing serious injury. NEVER USE WD40.

1. Depress and hold the reverse button down.
2. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps the length of the entry while squeezing the oil bottle.
3. Move the power switch to Auto (I) position, or depress the manual forward button (depending on model of shredder) and allow the blades to run at least three seconds.
4. Move the power switch to Reverse (R) position and allow it to run for at least three seconds.
5. Repeat steps three and four above at least three time.

Regards.

My shreader isabout 2 years old. While in the process of shreading 2 sheets of paper (it's rated for up to 10), the machine stopped half-way through the process. The bucket was not full. It was not...


If you look under the shredding mechanism you probably will find it jammed with bits or shreds of paper. It all has to be removed bit-by-bit. The stated 10-sheet capacity is nothing more than marketing hype. In reality, feeding sheets indivually will ensure longer shredder life.

It only runs part of a sheet then it stops & you have to turn it off & back on


Most likely the shredder is overheating and/or jammed. You have 2 options: 1) wait--do not attempt to shred anything else for about 15 minutes--and then try again; or 2) unplug the shredder, pull the bucket off, and attempt to dislodge some of the shaving yourself from the teeth. This is potentially dangerous, so you might want to wear some heavy duty gloves and use a pliers to extract the shredded material.
