I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!


There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

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.

Sometimes the sensor gets blocked by pieces of shredded paper. Unplug the unit and remove it from the paper bin. Turn it upside down and see if there are any "stray" pieces of shredded paper hanging on the unit. Remove the stray and replace the unit onto the bin making sure it is properly seated. If that is not the problem, try "tamping" the shredded paper into the bin and by doing so, giving the machine more room for the shredded paper. If neither of these help, refer to your owner's manual to see what recourse you may have.

We missed emptying out the machine, now we are not able to open the drawer. What can we do?


Try shaking the machine to lower the cuttings in the bin. You might have to pull really ******* the bin to remove it. Be careful you do not break handle on the bin. The machine should have stopped shredding when the bin full sensors were activated, if they did not , then you have bad sensors in the unit and they should be replaced.

I can't get the door open do empty the shredding


You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin.

SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING


look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.
