Question about Royal Orca ASF5000X Shredder
Shredder worked. Shipped it to my new home, plugged it in and nothing happens.
Is there a reset button or ?
I had something very much like what you tell of.
Take off top with 4 hex/Allen screws, careful not to stress wires to panel rocker switch. support it somehow. Follow the line cord in and check the fuse, maybe we should have done this first, huh?
With VOM check cont of black lead thru fuse into safety switch adjacent. ON MINE IT WAS JAMMED. I could not free it, and surmising it was an interface with custom waste receiver which I did not have I bypassed it with a drop of solder. SUCCESS!!
But not quite. therre was still a pesky intermittent on/off that came and went.
Traced it all down to a cold solder, dry, joint on a red lead going to the front panel switch. Take it off, tighten tabs, solder what had been only crimped at factory and SUCCESS!!
All back together and there is a reason they call this thing ORCA:
Good luck with forensics as this thing delivers uniform quarter inch squares, confetti, no chance to decipher one damn thing.
Hope this helps, David Anshus

There are 2 plugs in the back. one is on a short cord, the other is the regular power cord. BOTH must be plugged in. also, the shredder must be properly situated on top of the base so that the button inside of the back right good is depressed. last, there is a safety behind the bin that must also be depressed. mine broke--i have a piece of wood jammed in there to hold the button in.
