Question about Aurora Electronics AS-650C Cross-cut Shredder
I am not sure when exactly this problem began, but when i tried to use the shredder recently, it did not work. it does not work on auto or reverse.
i thought it might be a paper jam, so i cleaned it out and still nothing.
i took off the screws from the bottom, hoping that i can get in to see what the problem was. it was then that i noticed there was a lot of thick pieces of paper stuck inbetween and there was also a loose platic piece inside.
i am not sure as to the origin of the plastic piece, but it does look like a part of the shredder.
any help would be greatly appreciated
I had the same problem. I found that the shredder was not placed squarely on the basket. There is a small switch under the rim of the shredder (mine is on the back side) that gets depressed when the shredder is placed on the basket. If this switch is not depressed, the shredder will not work.
Make sure the shredder is fully seated on the basket.
Hope this helps!

Yep, had the same problem and finally figured it out.
The metal tab that needs to be pushed is activated when the top is sitting on the shredder properly. Sometimes it looks and feels like it is on properly but the 'rounded' back bit needs to be on the outside of the bin. This way the metal tab will be activated.

It sounds like a stripper that has broken not really sure with an Aurora machine but this is my diagnosis for Fellowes products. You should contact Aurora customer service at 86-21-5916-4588 ext. 498 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

I wave able to solve the problem by making sure the lttle metal contact attached to the switch get depressed when the shredder is put back on the cotainer. Some one suggested to tape it so that it is always pressed, bdut this compromises the safety feature. If u do that it will work, but the shredder will always shredd even when it is not placed on top of the container.

I thought it could be that. I ended up taking my shredder apart to look at it, and I did find that switch. I thought, like you did, that the basket should be pressing that switch, but there was no way, regardless of how it was situated, that that switch would become pressed. So I simply taped it down. I leave the shredder unplugged when not in use.
