Broken Dahl shredder

Hi there -

We have an old Dahl shredder 20091 which sits on top of a bin (like a garbage bin). We think it is broken beyond repair and would like to replace it. Do you know of a shredder that sits on top of the bin that would work the same way? I don't know if Dahl makes such a shredder anymore but I guess you would!!

Many thanks.

Cheers -

    Thanks for replying - much appreciated. I would rather try and fix the old Dahl shredder than purchase a new Fellowes but we'll see how it goes. At present we are getting it fixed.



    Cheers -

What does the safety intrlock tab look like if broken?


Something is out of place; either the bin or the sensor.

Power light comes on, but shredder does not engage when feeding in paper. Does not seem to have a paper jam. Is there a reset button?


Is there a secondary lock to prevent operation when not on the bin? Is the shredder the right way around on the bin? Is a lug on the bin broken?

Embassy shredder open door light won't go off after emptying bin. Therefore no shredding


The shredder probably has some kind of switch or sensor that detects that the bin is in its correct installed position. The interlock may be broken or blocked by paper shreds. An inspection inside the bin recess may reveal the cause so that it can be corrected.

My heavy duty shredder purchased 3 months ago has quit. Some times if you slam it down on the bin it will come on. It acts like the sensor thinks the bin is full. It is not indicating or seems to be over...


Shredders also have sensors to detect when they are off the bin. A safety feature obviously.

I'd make sure the shredder is properly oriented and sitting firmly on the bin.

Does the motor run??? even in reverse???
If the motor doeas not run at all it probably PCB. If the motor does run but the cutting mechanism does not turn then you probably have stripped/broken plastic gears... open and check,...contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

I have the same problem with a stripped gear, to remove the top i found it best to place the shredder on its back, then with a pozi screw driver there are 5 screws securing the top in place, these are inside the shredder above the paper bin, 1 in each corner and 1 in the centre.

Hope this helps.

I need help in trouble shooting my staples shredder spl-qw120d, I have lost the manual. It is saying that the bin is full but there is no paper in the bin.


Therer should be a tab hanging down that senses when the paper height trips it.

Blow into the sensor with canned air.

PS-70 Shredder problem


Make sure that the shredder is locked down in its case by pushing down on all 4 corners.
Since the basket slides forward to empty it, I would think the safety switch is located in the front but not positive since I don't have a unit right in front of me.
Check to see if you see a slot in the top part of the shredder unit. Usually the basket has a piece of plastic that will line up with the slot when the basket is in place (Safety switch) so that the top part of the shredder knows that the basket is in place.

Look around with a flashlight, If you are going to feel around with your hand, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG the shredder just to be safe.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Red light on will not run in forward


Check to make sure the shredder is sitting on the paper bin properly. Most shredders have a sensor switch that disables the unit if it's not properly seated on the paper bin.
