When bin was full, I emptied it only to find that my shredded no longer worked on auto, forward or reverse


Dear Sir,
Maybe, just maybe, I have an answer for you.
Somewhere on the part of your shredder that touches the bin, there is a tiny switch that touches the bin, and it is a safety switch that causes the shredder to stop working if the bin is removed.
In the shredder I have, and have had, the switch is usually plastic, and is the same color as the plastic body of the shredder.
Proper positioning of the bin to the "bottom" of the shredder is critical to it's working, as the bin presses on the switch to "close" it.
God bless your efforts.

Paper shredder doesn't move due to too much adhesive paper - how to fix it


Before trying anything I suggest, make sure your shredder isn't plugged in.
You will need to remove the adhesive from the rollers. You will need to use a glue solvent on the shredder rollers,something like Goo Be Gone. Personally, I still use Ronsonol Lighter Fluid In the image below I've outlined the supplies you'll need to, hopefully, clear your jam.



25346531-f3timxio4jyou4u0bydnlgfi-2-0.jpg Without disassembling your shredder, the best way to clear your jam is to use Rosonol Lighter Fluid (3), tweezers (4), and dental picks (5).
  1. Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. Separate the shredder from its shredded paper collection tub.
  2. Turn the shredder head upside down so that the paper output is facing up.
  3. Pour Rosonol lighter fluid on both sides of the rollers near where they come together.
  4. Use dental picks and tweezers to dislodge stuck paper pieces
  5. Turn Shredder head over and repeat steps 3 and 4
  6. Move power switch to the "Off" position
  7. Plug power cable back in
  8. Move power switch to "Rev" (reverse) position, if still stuck move power switch to the "Fwd" position, repeat twice
  9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 until the rollers move freely
Once the rollers are moving smoothly you need to oil the rollers.

I don't own this shredder, but most are built with similarities. Usually there is a micro-switch that's used to detect a piece of paper being inserted. Should this switch get jambed, it will continue to "sense" paper being inserted and continue to run.
As I said, I don't know this shredder, but it would be reasonable to assume that someone will need to open the shredder and clean (or replace) the switch.
As a possibility, I think I would try using one of those 3M Dust Remover can's of compressed air and see it you can dislodge any paper or paper dust around the switch by blowing through the paper entry opening. (Will need to look into the opening to see where the switch is located. Usually near the center.)
Otherwise need to have a technician come out.

Emerson cross Cut Shredder X822 how to check Steel Interlock switch at bottom of unit?


Brian, a lot of shredders have a microswitch in the bottom of the unit that has to be activated by a tab on the basket. One possibility is that the tab has broken off, which means that you would need a new basket, or there is a possibility that the shredder head is on the basket backwards and is not connecting with the tab. Hope this helps.

Power switch will not turn on


If it is just a matter of the power switch, that is an easy part to replace. It might also be that one of the leads to the switch has come loose (some shredders just use the slip-on connectors) and needs to be put back on. Also, if the wires are attached to the switch, have you tried touching the wires from the switch and seeing if the shredder will work then. You can use a short piece of insulated wire to act as a jumper cable to touch the two wires going to the switch. If this doesn't allow the shredder to operate (you need to have something pressing down on the safety switch), then you need a new 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.

No power to my shredder


Hello,
Check that there is still power to your outlet by plugging in something else.
Make sure that your shredder is properly and completely seated on your waste receptacle. There is a switch in the notch that prevents the shredder's running if it doesn't make contact. With the shredder unplugged, you might need to look up into the notch to make sure that there idn't anything in there that might prevent the switch from making good contact.
Work the switch from forward to reverse and back.
This should get you going.
Regards!, --W/D--

Light is on. Reverse works, paper fed won't trigger the shredder


If you are pushing a button to make the shredder run something doesn't sound right.

See if this makes sense, Generally shredders will use a photo switch or a micro switch to detect the paper. If you are pushing a button it sounds like you have a micro switch. The switch should have an arm that would extend into the throat of the shredder and the paper would hit the arm activating the switch. From your description it sounds like the arm is missing or bent out of the way of the paper. If you can see the paper actually hitting an arm that would activate the button then the arm may just need to be bent a little so it moves farther to operate the button

Hope this makes sense and helps
