    I have the same problem. I pulled the cover off but I don't see the same wiring configuration you described. From what I can tell there is a switch towards the front of the unit that has a red and orange and there is a PCB that I am assuming is the bin full sensor that has 4 wires leading to a harness on the main board. On the sensor PCB there are 2 what look to be LEDS, I am assuming one is some sort of photo diode. Yellow and brown go to one, black and red go to the other.

    Same issue - anyone knows of how to solve this?

    Took top off (w/o unplugging - oops) to empty basket & now won't operate. Could safety device be in effect? Have unplugged, let it sit, blown out crevices and cleared out any possible blockage but its dead as a doornail.

I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

I have the same problem. My shredder is empty and clean. I put paper in it to shred and I hear a click and nothing happens. I then put in reverse and hear the same click.

Check operation of the bin interlock inside the area where the bin fits. It may be damaged/defective.

Where can I obtain a repair manual for a Staples SPL 1506X Shredder


You can't. You take it apart yourself, you find the cogs inside are plastic and shattered and you can't get replacements, so you have to buy a new one.

Spl-1506x shredder only runs in reverse


Daniel:

Unplug the shredder... Take the top off and turn it upside down. Use a screwdriver to take the lower cowling off and look at the motor. If the mounting area where the motor sits looks melted at all, the machine is toast. If the motor mounting area looks good, look at the slot where the paper is inserted... there should be a sensor (that "sees" the paper when you insert it) at the paper slot. Check to see that the sensor isn't damaged.

Automatic switch does not shut off after shredding on Staples model SPL-1506X shredder.


These shredders have a "paper in" sensor. This is either optical or mechanical.
Sounds like the sensor is blocked and therefore "thinks" there is still more paper left, and this is why it keeps going.

Before you do anything UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
The sensor is located about in the middle and at the level of the blades.
If it's mechanical, you should see a little finger, else it is electronic.
Shine a light in the area and you should be able to spot where the blockage is.
A shot with compressed ais usually gets rid of the offending particles.

After you're finished working on it, set it back securely on the basket and plug it in.

I need help in trouble shooting my staples shredder spl-qw120d, I have lost the manual. It is saying that the bin is full but there is no paper in the bin.


Therer should be a tab hanging down that senses when the paper height trips it.

Blow into the sensor with canned air.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

I had the same problem. I took the machine apart and found out that the main gear running the rollers was defective. All of the cogs were broken or worn out, If you can find parts it can be fixed?
