Question about Quartet gbc Shredmaster 4550X (Confetti-Cut) Shredder

1 Answer

Machine Died? I have a Shredmaster 4550X - about 1 year old. This morning we shred about 10 pages and the machine turned off. It won't turn back on - appears to have no power at all. I've checked the outlet, the power cord, the breaker - everything is fine there. Is there a reset switch somewhere? I've read about a fuse in some postings. Is this in the shredder itself? Is there a site that provides a user manual for this thing?

We had the same problem at our office. Our machine is also about 1 year old. We checked the warranty and it is covered under a 3 year manufacturer warranty.

The repair person said that the whole motor gave out and they are replaceing it with a new one.

Get it fixed for free.....its still under warranty.....


Hope this helps.

My shreader isabout 2 years old. While in the process of shreading 2 sheets of paper (it's rated for up to 10), the machine stopped half-way through the process. The bucket was not full. It was not...


If you look under the shredding mechanism you probably will find it jammed with bits or shreds of paper. It all has to be removed bit-by-bit. The stated 10-sheet capacity is nothing more than marketing hype. In reality, feeding sheets indivually will ensure longer shredder life.

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

Shredmaster 1656 makes extreme noise when turned on. Sounds like motor. Please help!


Sounds like shred blades are bent down into each other.

UNPLUG.

If you can get the top off, you may be able to use a large screw driver to straighten out the blades.
