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

1 Answer

Please Help We have a shredmaster 4550X and all of a sudden it stopped working. The machine is plugged in, no lights will come on and the machine will not come on. We have tried to unplug the machine, tried plugging it in to other outlets. It just will not work at all. If you could please advise on what we could do to fix the problem.

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.

On, Fwd, Rvs button has stopped working on my Shredmaster 75X. How do I fix this?


First check the power point is still working - plug in another appliance, like a table lamp. If OK check the fuse in the shredder cable plug.

The commonest reason for a shredder stopping is a paper jam, or running the shredder for too long. By 'too long', many shredders will cut-out after 5 minutes continuous working, and the sensor may take 15 minutes to cool down! Read the manual.

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and/or long nosed pliers to poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while.

No blinking lights, it just quit turning,


Mine does that when the paper bin is not in all the way or when the paper bin is too full.

Completely dead. How do I get the covers removed? Shredmaster 5550 shredder


You need a lonk shank #1 or #2 phillips or possibly a small Torx to remove the 10 or so screws that holds the top to the bottom. Traditionally, the screws are seet deeply into the holes you will find on the underside. Some holes may be covered with rubber plugs.

You will probably find a small fuse on the board when you get it open. Find a replacement at Radion Shack. The one I replaced was soldered in. Yours may be different.
