Paper shredder won't turn on

Large old Wilson Jones(model 1353) shredder has an on switch, a reverse switch and an off switch. Was working great despite being dropped on it's head by UPS during shipping a year ago. Yesterday I think the paper feed sensor that is under the feed slot plastic (broken on mine) got sucked into the shredder and the end bitten off . Now it won't turn on. I think it had a little light sensor on the end (??). In any case now it is a white and a red wire inside a black wire casing, bitten off. anyway I can resurrect this?

SOURCE: paper shredder

The only solution with respect to safety is to order a new switch from the companuy that manufactures/sells this shredder, and mount it according to the manufacturer/sales company's instructions.
If you want to bypass the safety of the machine, just keep the cables (should be 2, + eventually a ground cable) open, or shorted, depending of the machine's configuration. Remember that this is on your or your collegaues own risk!! A shredder can easily bite your finger off!

SOURCE: Need wiring diagram/info for Tech Solutions TS2550 Paper Shredder

Hi,
Thank you so very much for going into so much detail about my shredder that wouldn't pull paper thru it. You were SO NICE to do all that & I sincerely wish I could send you a picture of the wiring. HOWEVER, I threw it away months ago when I got no answer to my problem. Guess I'm not patient enough :-) I sincerely appreciate your reply and wish that I could help you out. If I still had it, I'd just mail it to you :-)

My 17 year old Wilson Jones 1153 Model shredder can't be left plugged in-It drains the electrical circuits and turns our heater off. Other than that,it works great.Is this worth repairing-Suggestions?


Just take it apart and unplug the switch that is keeping it on. take pictures when you pull apart the cases. sometimes some of the screws are under labels. Should be no more than five screws. Paper has an oily presence and causes these type of failures.

Our Wilson Jones 2000 shredder is jammed. I put too many papers in it at once, didn't realize they were folded on the bottom. How do I clear the jam?


Try reversing it. If that fails, get access to the shredding mechanism (with power off) and pick the paper out piece by piece and bit by bit.

How do open and close Wilson Jones 365-49 Large Handing Post Binder


Open the binder flat, press the top right stick thing (sorry, don't know a better word for it), and press it to your right. Lift the metal (right side) up and out. To put back in, just place in the papers, and then take the right metal strip of three prongs, and snap it back into place. Hope this makes sense.

Shredder is Wilson Jones 130 auto. I believe staff shredded to many sheets at one time. No no lights no power forwards or backwards. Is there a reset or fuse, can't find one


Oddly, my Wilson Jones 130 auto just did exactly the same thing. I'm the only one that uses it (that I know of) and one day it worked, the next it didn't. There is no paper stuck in it. There are no power lights, nothing works. Does anyone know the location of a reset button or something?

I would like to know how to oil an Wilson-Jones 1250 schredder.


Wow, a name from the past.... with any shredder the easiest way to "oil it" is just to put a bead of oil in an "S" pattern down a sheet of paper to be shredded and then shred the sheet of paper.
If you shred a lot you should do this more frequently...if its only occassional shredding OR if its a strip cut shredder then you don't have to do this as often.

Wilson Jones Shredder Automatic On/Off


When auto function does not work there are two things to do 1st. canned air is your friend try blowing out the photo sensor that makes the auto function start. It is located in the very center of the feed point upper and lower parts meaning two areas to clean. they usually are little round spots when paper dust gets on them they either continuously run or do not run. Now 2nd if cleaning does not help then you may have bad photo sensor. you will need hands on tech. respond if having trouble and leave feedback if this helps. Have a nice day!

Paper Jam in Wilson Jones 1500. Reverse doesn't clear it. Is the plastic cover where the paper is fed removable?


You should probably unplug it. Two screws in back and under. Slide front cover back an inch.Disconnect cable and clean unit with vacuum.


You can hand cycle it in both directions to loosen up the blades.
