    shredder was stuck; not running in reverse or to shred. Cleaned off stuck paper shreds; plugged it and ran it in reverse to clear. Will not run in auto (to shred)?

Look down into the slot to see if the teeth are sharp. They should have little J-hook thingys that look like the teeth in your mouth. If it looks ok, give it some food to chew. If it burps it up, throw it away because its a junker and not worth your time.

Good Luck.

I dont have the original bin for an Infoguard SX100M. It runs if I hold it and push in the red button with a screwdriver. When I try to load the paper, the shredder doesnt grab it. Any fixes?


I can't imagine holding the red bin interlock button depressed with a screwdriver every time I wanted to shred something but hey, whatever works!

Your shredder does not grab the paper because an internal "page in" sensor is damaged, defective, or blocked by shredded residue.

WON'T STOP SHREDDING WHEN ON AUTO


You will probably find some shredded paper is blocking the sensor in the middle of the paper feed slot

Constantly runs when on auto and won't accept paper


Shut off power and turn the shredder upside down. It is highly likely you will find shredded paper jammed in the mechanism, especially near the center where the feed sensor is located. A thorough cleaning should get your shredder operating again

My VF 1012mx paper shredder won't feed the paper in order to shred it. Green light is on but nothing happens when I put the paper in.


Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

I have a Royal VF1000MF shredder. While shredding


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

If you can't get the paper shredder back to good condition it looks like you might have to get a new paper shredder. Great place to learn about new paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Paper won't shred


When the paper is inserted can you still see the cutting shafts turning....if not then take top cover off and chk...you most likely have damaged plastic gear in drive train.

All lights turn on as needed and has power but won't grab paper to shred


suspect paper jam try using reverse button the dislodge paper.
suspect paper feed sensor is blocked or damaged there is a light beem in front of the teeth that starts the shredder if this defective the shredder will not start.
suspect a panel or bin is not correctly seated causing the shredder to not start.

Shredder won't grab paper


there has to be something in the path.

once you put the paper in it triggers a sensor that rotates the blades and grabs the paper there is nothing else in between the entrance and the blades. get a flash light and lok in to see what is blocking the path.

unless there are some paper in between the teeth /blades, that need to be cleaned out.
