I lightly oiled the blades by dripping some vegetable oil on the blades. Soon after, the auto-shut off sensor that stops the machine automatically if I don't put anything in the blades after approx 30 seconds. stopped working. Originally it would re-start when I put a sheet of paper in without having to press the on button. The shredder still does it's job great but I miss the auto-shut off and on. (Not to be confused with the shut-off from overheating which I've never had happen.)
I suspect that some of the oil got on a sensor or electric eye. Is it easy to locate this sensor and possibly wipe it off?

Re: Auto Shut off doesn't work anymore
Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. Either of these should be located in the center of the paper throat. If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

Same here....I soon had the same problem after changing the oil..Found out after many tests and research that auto parts stores cross reference a lot of audi oil filters to the vw counterparts..Which do fit audi,but are shorter and lack the oil capacity to feed the engine.Then the pressure light pops on!!!! make sure the larger/longer oe type is installed.If your not sure buy it from audi its not much more than the napa brand.
Good Evening, unfortunately it is not as simple as it could be. Servicing your engine usually meant changing your oil or doing a tune up. Your service engine soon light could come on for emission related sensors, transmission related information and otherwise. If it is still running correctly and still feels fine I would not quite worry yet. However I would not hesitate to take it to your local autozone or advance auto parts stores and they can hook up to your vehicle and give you a little print out of what the diagnostic code is stored in the system causing the light to be on. And armed with that information we can help solve your problem. Anymore these lights can come on from your gas cap not being on tight enough or the gasket on it not making a good seal. Hope this helps and anything we can do after you find out what the code is please ask.
could be a few things-(if oil pressure is showing low usually under 20 lbs recheck oil level) bad sensor,oil pump,low oil level ,sludge have truck scanned for trouble code some stores such as auto zone / advanced auto scan for free
The Service Light indicates that the EMC has detected and problem and needs to be addressed. Your going to have the get the Blazer scanned for DTC codes which could be a simple problem as to a faulty Gas Cap to a bad O2 sensor.
Sorry can not help you more then this but most large auto parts store like Auto Zone will scan your blazer for free and some auto shop charge as low as $10.00 to scan and reset the ECM.
Good luck and hope it's something simple.
