This one may be hard to find at a retail store so I am sending a link I found. they have available slip on tips to match your equipment.

make sure you know if you need an 120v AC to 24vdc or 120v AC to 24v DC there is a difference 24vdc (volts DC) 24vac (volts AC) you will be looking for a 1500ma typical rating for this type or transformer

I have not purchaced from this place before nor do I endorse it just trying to help

Hope this solves your problem

If you are in the UK you can get one here:

If you are in the US try here:

Any 24v will work as long as it's at least 1.5Amp, higher currents like 2, 3, 4, 5 etc would also work, but not lower than 1.5Amp.

GBC CC195 paper shedder not working. Dosen't do anything when inserting paper.

There is supposed to be a switch that is activated by the material inserted into the shredder. If it is stuck or broken, then only the manual buttons will operate the motor.

As a shredded user myself, I took mine to an office machine repair store and they fixed it for a very reasonable price (and they gave it a good cleaning at the same time.)

I have an Achiever CCS5000 shredder. On the base that holds the shedder part the safety post that must be up to run is broken. I need the part to fix. Where can I buy this part?

I also have one that i use off of the base. You can take the top off, 6 screws, make sure it is unplugged and locate the safety switch, cut the 2 wires & twist them together then use electrical tape to secure & insulate them. that will take care of the problem.

I hear the motor but when I feed the paper the motor does not turn

Most shedders have cheapo plastic gears and they strip off after a while...
For many units they are not available for replacement... so basically your shedder is unrepairable...

My shedder won't spin at all any more in the forward mode. It only goes the reverse? What can I do?

Try cleaning the "eys" in the middle where you insert the paper...if that dosn't do it it is likely you have lost the PCB Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Shreds in reverse only

I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

Shedder Doesn't Work

Are you sure the saftety switch on the left side of the shredder is in contact with the small metal latch on the inside left side of the basket. The machine won't work unless the ssfety switch is pushed in.
