Question about Tech Solution TS-4500 Shredder

2 Answers

No Power! I have a Tech Solutions TS-4500 paper shredder. It worked one day and the next it will not turn on! I have tried multiple outlets and no success! The Shredder did fall over from an upright position to its side and now will not turn on in any switch position. Any ideas?? Thanks!

    Been there, done that, too! The removable shredding mechanism (top) part of the shredder can easily be placed on the waste container backwards! Then the switch isn't turned on and the shredder won't work.

    The switch is designed to signal that waste can is full.

Check and make sure the paper catch bin is locked into place.
IF the shredder doesn't see that the bin is in place, the shredder will appear dead for safetly reasons.

There is a possibility that the control board was cracked but the only way to check that, is to take it apart and check.
Good luck.

My Tech Solutions TS4500 paper shredder will shred approximately 1/2 page of one or several sheets of paper. But at that point it chokes and will not shred any further. It will back the unshred portion...


My experience has been that when a shredder chokes it usually is trying to tell you the bin is full but a cross-cut shredder is less susceptible. I do have a heavy duty cross-cut shredder that gets rather wonky when suffering from indigestion. Check whether the amount of bin content is affecting yours.

I have a tech solutions shredder. Envelope got stuck. I cleared it out. Now it will go backwards, but not forwards...although the green light does come on when I press the forward button.


There is probably paper, dust, or something still in the shredder somewhere obstructing the sensor. Run it backwards for a minute or so, then turn it over and blow it out, and after unplug the shredder and plug it back in. Then see if it runs forward.

It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.

Fellowes paper shredder


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.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc1.gif board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

SHREDDER EPS-1501X


I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.
