Only goes in reverse when paper is inserted

Shredders have three settings
Manual forward
Manual reverse

Better shredders also have sensors that turn on when paper is inserted. It sounds as if your is in reverse and auto start.

The shredder only goes in reverse. I did oil it, but it doesn't work.

did you try to fix the forward problem by oiling it? That would be my first choice. The Forward and reverse switch would be my first thing to check to make sure the switch is working. Next would be the actual motor to see if it's getting power to go forward.
Oiling it won't fix the forward problem unless it was somehow stuck which would be unlikely since it goes in reverse.
Sorry I couldn't give you more help with this.
Good luck.

Why does my intimus 602 shredder only run in reverse

This applies if Reverse is forward, and forward is running in reverse. If someone worked on it they may have reversed the wires from the motor to the board. There are four wires from the motor, of the four one goes to MZ on the board, another one goes to MV. If you swap these two wires you will be running in the correct direction again.

Shredder goes 1/3 and stops has to be reversed the forward also paper comes out punched but unshredded

its the combination of plastic parts in the shredding device . the plastic tongs part craks off then the metal binds . paper builds up in that area .
its unlikely you can fix it .
youll put ur eye out trying.

MY shredder isn't shredding paper it goes in reverse though

Try cleaning the "eyes" in the centre where you put the paper in.... if that dosn't fix it you may have blown the pcb inside and will have to call the manufacturer for parts.

Intimus 600 shredder

The plastic reverse pushbutton over the soft touch keypad is broken/stuck in or down causing this problem. A new pushbutton cover is needed. How are the Forward and Stop buttons?

Aurora ASa015CD shredder

any wierd noise when it goes in reverese?

is forward dead or intermittant?

most likely if reverse is perfect but forward is dead,, your control board has blown mosfets , power drivers for forward operation

Heres a few sites that have gears n boards another that has manuals you may have to call or email as not all parts are listed on website

new control board needed or buy a new unit depending on cost of board.
