Actually you more than likely have a broken or stripped gear. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.

I have read over and over the four-page manual for my TS-4500 shredder and I cannot find information about preventive maintenance such as oiling the mechanism and/or blades. Surely, there must be a means...


Shreddrs do need to be oiled approximately every 30 minutes or so, of continuous use. Any shredder oil will do just fine. Squirt a little shredder oil onto a piece of paper that you wish to shred & feed it through your shredder. That is all you need to do to keep it oiled.

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 seems a sif soemthing is blocking the shredder


you will need to take it aprt. over time paper dust gets in the gears, transmission and bushings. you will need to remove all the dust and inspect the drive gears. mosyt of these come apart buy taking it off the stand. flipping it over, messy. removeing the bottm bolts/screws. then maybe remove trans mission cover.

Cannot open TS 4500 shredder.


look around on top or bottom for a decal or label covering. A lot of times there is a screw located under it, once you peel back the label.

Can't get shredder to work


Please ... unplug your shredder before doing this.

It sounds like you were on the right track picking paper out of the gears. The problem is that the paper can get really jammed up in there, especially when you use the reverse.

I found that I needed to use a combination of a small screwdriver with at least a 3 inch long blade to push the jammed paper through. The I use needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper through the other side.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if it does.

Blessings,

Ts 4500 blades not moving


From the sound from your description, it is Probably a cracked gear or a worn bushing.

To get a better idea, you would have to take it apart to see what is going on inside.
Good luck
