Question about Banner American Products QuikFinish ShredderShark 8

2 Answers

There seems to be something wrong with the sensors. Sometimes it runs all the time. Sometimes it runs when there is no paper in it, and stops when you put a paper in the slot. There is no rhyme or rhythm to it. We received it as a gift and now the place where it was purchased will not do anything about it.

DO NOT BLOW CANNED AIR INTO THIS SHREDDER - IT CAN EXPLODE. It has a warning label on the front that tells you not to do so. I didn't pay attention to it and listened to the earlier posted solution and it blew up! A ball of flame shot out and singed my arm hairs. I was lucky I had my hands on the top or it probably would have hit me in the face. DON'T TRY IT!

In some cases, not all; the paper feed rollers get dry and slick. If so they tend to feed at times and sometimes stop halfway at times. Look at your rollers.

Hello. These automatic shredders are so handy. You put a piece of paper [or two or three] in the paper entry area and it automatically turns on...........how convenient.................BUT eventually, most of us run into the situation where the @#$%^ thing won't automatically turn off..........and then it seems like we either unplug it every time, or start shopping for a replacement.

NO LONGER......Read on.......In most instances, a shredder that continuously runs isn't broken, it merely needs some TLC. Most shredders, contain two tiny sensors near the paper entry area. These sensors are designed to shoot signals back and forth enabling the shredder to turn itself on when paper enters the machine. After the paper has made it through, the sensors then tell the machine to shut off.

Sometimes these sensors can malfunction. This can happen when oil, paper dust, or debris covers the sensors. Covered-up sensors essentially tell the shredder that paper is entering it, thus causing it to continuously run. While this problem can occur in both cross- and strip-cut machines, it tends to happen more often in cross-cut units because those units are oiled more frequently and create more paper dust than strip cut units.

THE FIX: wipe the debris or oil or ink off the sensors. Here's how to do it:

1. Unplug your shredder and look for the sensors in the paper entry area. In the center of the opening, there will be two things that look like marbles - these are what you're looking for. (Please note - if your shredder has a safety flap over the cutting mechanism, you may have to lift it to find the sensors.)

2. After you've found the sensors, use a slightly damp cotton ball or Q-tip to clear away any oil or paper dust. You can use a small pair of needle-nose pliers or tweezers to clear away any large chunks of debris.

If your machine is a model that lacks the electronic sensors - such as a smaller deskside shredder designed for home use - you can still fix the problem on your own because those machines have mechanical sensors. These are also located in the middle of the paper entry and they look like small plastic dividers. (In most of these models, the sensors are white, but they could also be gray or black.) The sensors are depressed when paper enters the machine, which causes it to start shredding. Once the paper is gone, the machine stops.

1. Sometimes bits of paper can weigh down on the sensors, thus causing the machine to run non-stop. But it's easy to clear up this problem by doing the following:

2. Unplug the shredder and locate the sensors.

Remove any debris. Use tweezers or pliers, if necessary, but be careful to not press down too hard on the sensors to avoid damaging them.


Once again, after you remove the debris, plug your machine back in and you should be up and running.

Happy shredding everyone!

Swingline Model 525 electric 3 hole punch


It has a safety switch. This switch turns machine on when it detects paper and off if it doesn't. Something wrong with sensor. Broken, paper stuck under it, out of position. Will have to open it up and check the sensor. ***Always remember to unplug any equipment before working on it***

Paper just begins to come out of paper tray and then jams


More than likely its not your cam position sensor This controls spark and timing if this was bad the car would not run. Go with the knock sensor it should be located on the top or on the back of the block.

Technical Services Note
MT6xx/T6xxx (All) Paper Motion Faults 11 May 1995
T645.039
If you are having problems with recurring Paper Motion Faults that don’t seem to stay
fixed by doing the paper motion sensor calibration, try the following:
· Check the back of the form along the left side to ensure there are no black (dark) areas
in the area of the tractor drive holes. (If there are, this is probably the problem. If not,
proceed on down this list.)
·
Clean the sensor on the upper left tractor then run the calibration routine again. If it’s
not better yet, continue.
·
With Tech Access ON, do the following:
Go into DIAG - Meters - Paper Motion and monitor the sensor reading with paper
installed and removed. If the reading with paper installed is in the 300 to 350 mVolt
range, change the sensor (even if it seems to run the calibration alright). A more
normal reading would be something greater than 600 mVolts for the MT691/6092 and
1000mVolts or greater in the 645/661. Don’t forget to recalibrate the sensor. If it’s
not fixed yet, try this next step.
·
Run a configuration printout and then do the following:
1. Clear the NV Ram (Tech Access feature ON)
2. Calibrate the Paper Motion and Paper Out sensors
3. Restore the configuration based on the print-out you just ran

Forms jam on IBM 4232


there are 2 paper sensors in the 4232 printer. the first is the most obvious and is a large black sensor found at the front of the printer and the paper is fed through it. the next sensor is on the printhead carriage assembly. its rather small and can be easy over seen. the sensor is just to the right of the printhead assembly. Clean both sensors and make sure they are properly locked into their sensor homes and this should take care of your problems. If not then it might be time to replace those sensors.

My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode


Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.
