Question about Tech Solution TS-8000 Cross-Cut Shredder
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?
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.
