SOURCE: SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

The shredder has no power


What kind of shredder is it? Try adding shredder oil into the opening to soak up the papers that might have jammed the shredder.
If that does not work - does the power light come on, if there is such indicator on this shredder?

Since you mentioned that it had overheated, there is a possibility and a thermal fuse that is part of the motor had been triggered and needs to be replaced.

Are there wiring diagrams available for NoviTech PS-026/B2 shredders or just the PDF converter that you try to trick us into downloading?


we don't try to trick you into doing anything
The information given is generic because you have more information than you reveal and you are required to use the given information to produce ideas as to where to go to get the information to help
best advice for you now is to take it in for a service or repair and have it fixed properly

My Royal 1600MX is completely empty of any paper but it keeps saying its overheating and shuts off. How do I fix this? Is there a glitch with the sensor?


The overheat indicator comes on because paper residue is jammed in the mechanism, causing it to bind and overheat the motor.

My shredder is not working does it have a fuse somewhere


The shredder may be so clogged, with plastic for example, that the motor overheated and went into thermal shutdown. It also is possible that the input sensor is blocked. My experience with shredders that have been used to shred any type of plastic or plastic coated paper is that they are a complete mess inside.

Red light and green light on but motor will not come on


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Blades do not rotate, motor runs


Something is stripped. Most shredders are gear driven from the motor to the driver shaft and onto the driven shaft. Check that the motor has not come loose from its mountings, the drive gear has not come off the motor or the gear has stripped. You will have to split the shredder housings to do this.

You should open the top up so you can see whats going on inside. take a good look at the pcb and see if its going "black" in any places(not a good sign) Remove any paper lying inside the unit...check and see if its paper, the pcb, or the motor that is "smoking"...have you ever lubricated the cutting blades.???
Once you determine where the problem is you can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices if needed.

When using my panasonic 12v ey6409 drill there are sparks and smoke coming out at the rear, should I be concerned.


the tool with the brake will throw some sparks when it creates the short to stop rotation, but the SMOKE is an indication of a burnt motor and yes you should be concerned. Do you smell a burning odor when running if so the motor will soon fail.

Shredder will not


Andrew,
You have done all the right troubleshooting.

I would say the circuit board is toast.

It stopped working after a big shred. I suspect an overheat. How do I reset it?


it's overheated, after you turn on the shredder, is it working?
if not, that means your shredder's motor is death.
need to buy a new shredder.
