I have a Ryobi ESR 2240 garden shredder and need to put a new switch on. I didn't note the connections when I removed the old one. Can you tell me which wires go to which terminals?

There are 4 terminals on the back of the switch, numbered 13 / 23 and 14 / 24. Terminal 24 is the neutral wire from the cut off switch. Terminal 14 is the live wire from the mains. Terminal 13 is the brown live wire which comes out of the choc block with a black wire. Terminal 23 is the other brown wire that comes from the choc block.

How do you test the ignition coil on 410r Ryobi tiller?

with a multimeter set on ohms resistance and in the coil wiring
you can also test by removing the plug , using a new plug connect the ht wire to the plug and ground the body of the plug onto metal of the engine-- problem
pull the cord fast and check for a spark across the plug gap
good blue spark --not a coil problem

check the air gap between the coil and the flywheel ( .005 to .010" gap) coils seldom fail and it generally the plug or switch wires that are at fault

I have replaced spark plug, gasolines w/fuel filter, and carburetor but ryobi s430 still won't start.

Make sure that all of your fuel lines are good with no leaks and cracks. Ditto for primer bulb. If all ok, then you need to clean out carb, or get a kit for it.

Why does my ryobi 18v hybrid string trimmer work well on electric but slowly on battery?

How old is your battery? Don't expect a battery to last longer than a couple of years. Try this before going for another battery. Put the battery in you freezer for 3 days. Take it out and let it thaw for 4 days. Charge it and see if there is any new life in it. If not, it's battery time.

Staple stuck in shredder

First lesson - NEVER put staples through shredder. Have you been able to remove the staple? Switch all power off, and then look at blade section. If still present - remove staple - may need magnet or tweezers. This should fix the problem, but if it doesn't it seems you may have some teeth out of alignment. This will probably require replacing the shredder bar by a technician, or a new unit.

Shredder does reverse but not forward

How old is the shredder? Is it still under warranty? If it is old and past the warranty period, it may be that the On/Off switch needs to be replaced. Since it is "cleaned" and it works in reverse, it does sound like a switch. BUT...
Since you may have "cleaned" the rollers, you may still have some paper jamming the blades/rollers. To check this out, you may have to open the unit. This is done by using, in most cases, a skinny Phillips head screw driver and removing the screws from each hole. I say a "skinny" screwdriver because the screws are usually rather far in the holes and you also need to make sure you remove them all. Lay each screw out in the pattern of the screw holes so you can replace them in the holes from which you removed them (some screws are of different length). Now carefully separate the halves of the unit and make sure to be aware of any wires that are connected to both parts. When this is done and the blades/rollers can be seen, check for paper that may still be present. You should be able to turn the blades/rollers by hand using the gears by the motor. If you can't do this, DO NOT use any tools to try to move them. Once you are sure that ALL the paper is removed, put the two halves back together and replace the screws. Make sure the halves are properly aligned before tightening the screws down.
Once you have replaced the unit back onto the bin and it is properly seated, try it out. It should work. If not, decide on whether or not you want to try replacing the switch. At this point you may also decide if it is easier to just purchase a new one.

It just stopped working, power light not on. Is my shredder dead? It didn't jam up. Just tried to turn it on one morning and it wouldn't turn on.

My wife put a plastic bag in the basket to catch the shred.
This will block the power switch on the back - bottom -corner of the shredder. The switch fits into slots on the waste receptacle.

I have a Fellows Powershred ps 60cc and removed the shredder top to empty the shredded documents. When I put it back on, the red light will not go out and it will no longer work. It was working perfectly...

the shredder has a safety switch that closes when the unit is put back on the basket. check under the cutter head for the hole that has the switch and check your basket for the acuator put together so they will line up
