Where can I get a replacement micro switch.
This is the switch that turns on the shredder when you put the paper in.
Thanks,

    I need a metal gear that connects to the electric motor. Any idea where I can get one?

  • MOTORRR Feb 24, 2008

    The small metal gear on the motor of my AS1200X has lost its teeth. Dentures are out of the question.....joke. Are parts available anywhere?

    Thanks for your time. Bruce

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. s_h_chapman@msn.com.

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.

I need a new plastic drive gear where can i get one and cost


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!

I have an Aurora Shredder -- Model #AS1512X. Paper got jammed and I pulled the paper out and now the shredder will not work. Any ideas as to how to fix this?????


Check safety and detection switches. 1. Safety is on the bottom and left or right side of shredder unit inside a narrow gap. On the bucket's wall there is a natch witch should go into the gap, when you put shredder correctly. Check if switch and natch are on the same side. Simple turning around will solve problem. 2. Check a detection switch. It is located in the middle, inside of gap. This switch engages and turns motor on when you put paper into shredder. In other words sheets of paper should push the switch first before touching shredding rolls. If you have digged out that paper from the top side, chances are you have broken that switch.

My AS101bCD Aurora shredder will not shred paper, green light on paper in nothing, will happily go in reverse, what can i do


Sounds like a problem with the switch. Replacement is the most likely option, switches cannot normally be repaired.

Our Aurora AS1712X paper shredder is jammed in a couple of places with paper so badly that we cannot free the jam and the tooth wheels cannot turn freely. Is there an easy way to clear the jam?


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Shredder will not atomaticly turn on when paper is put in.


The micro switch is stuck or bad. It is located in center of the cutters. Unplug and check for scraps of paper jamed around the switch.

How do I lubricate a Aurora AS702MX shredder?


two ways, first take a light oil (3 in 1) and scribble a pattern on a piece of paper and pass it through the cutting heads do this a couple of times, this can be done as you shred just put a little oil on papers you are about to shred from time to time.

second, if it is a light duty machine, with plastic parts, then pass some waxed paper through the shredder to clean and lube the heads, this also works for your 3 hole punches.
