Question about Office Shredders
Where can I get a replacement micro switch.
This is the switch that turns on the shredder when you put the paper in.
Aurora AS1200X paper shredder
If I am unsuccessful in locating the replacement gear for my AS1200X, I will joyfully sell you my unit-for parts.

I believe the micro switch used for the safety switch connected at the back bottom of the machine is the same as the switch you need. You could short the back switch out and use that switch in its place. At least it would be usable.

I also have a broken metal spur gear at the end of the metal shredder on an AS1200x. If someone still has 1 good one they would like to dispose of please let me know. Or, if someone wants one good one or other parts from this shredder let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org.

I called them and they were no help at all. They said, in short, "We don't have parts, we can't help you, buy a new Shredder! There warranty is 30 days with receipt.
I would buy yours for parts but it wouldn't be worth the shipping charges!
If you wanted to remove the micro switch and would send to me I'd be interested in purchasing it. My machine isn't that old, so I really don't want to purchase a new shredder. I got it from CostCo last year.

Take the broken gear to a machine shop.

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called
customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder.
My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the
part I need for a small fee. I paid $15.00 but my model number is AS1019CS for the part, with shipping and handling. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in
the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!
