Check and see if the cutting blades are turning when the shredder is running...if the cutting blades are not turning then you probably have stripped a gear inside...you will have to open it to check.

Emerson cross Cut Shredder X822 how to check Steel Interlock switch at bottom of unit?


Brian, a lot of shredders have a microswitch in the bottom of the unit that has to be activated by a tab on the basket. One possibility is that the tab has broken off, which means that you would need a new basket, or there is a possibility that the shredder head is on the basket backwards and is not connecting with the tab. Hope this helps.

What kind of lubrication oil for paper shredders


Mineral oil is probably the best choice. You can also use "Paper Shredder Oil" which is probably the same thing but for more $$. Vegitable oil generally works well for lubing things, but have never tried it on a shredder.

Shredder Green light won't come on and won't shredd. won't go in reverse either.


I had the same problem with the same shredder. The unit uses mains voltage which is rectified to DC and eventually feeds two 12V zener diodes wired in series for a 24Vdc supply. These are 1N4742A (Radio Shack 276-0563), 1W parts. They overheat and will short, which you can verify with a VOM. I reassembled the unit, but recall they are away from the relays at the tail end of the large white colored power resistors, side by side in the same direction. I think Z1 and Z5. After replacing these parts, green LED and reverse, etc. will work.

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

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.

Shredder won't accept paper on left side


If you think you have taken all the screws you may not know that most often there will be a hidden screw ot two under a sticker or a plug.It may be that your unit has tabs that simply need to be pulled apart. Unfortunately I only know Fellowes products but maybe this will help. Good Luck.

Won't shut off after shredding.


I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2.  Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)
