Hello,

the problem is replaceable if its not fixable.

If you can get the broken part, use a glue to hold the broken part back to its correct position. But if it refuses to hold back together, then it means you will have to do a replacement.

Look for an office equipment replacement part within your vicinity. Or call the number on the below link for the replacement part:

Good luck.

Do you sell the safety interlock switch for the TS4500, model no. PS-067/B?

If you could take it apart, you could bypass the interlock. I would not do this if you have children, unless you buy a lockout box.

I would try and glue the pin with superglue.

Spl-s302d shredder door open


Check to see if there's a little piece that broke off from the door. This would be the "safety interlock switch" or little thingy that pushes down the basket sensor. The basket sensor is located on the bottom front of the shredder. I bent a paper clip to hold down the metal switch (basket sensor) and taped it to the front of the shredder with scotch tape.

Rick,

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

Thanks,

OM 99727 shredder not working


I had this same problem. This is what I did to fix it.

When I went to ShredCare.com (the recommended web site for technical support of this particular shredder), I read that 'Most models of shredders have a safety interlock switch that is activated by the basket.' Upon looking closely at my basket and the shredder, I found this safetly interlock switch and made sure to align it with the proper position within the basket. There is only ONE way to place the shredder on the basket and have this safety interlock switch activated. The switch is located on the underside of the shredder. Align this switch with the ridge on the inside of the basket. Listen carefully and you will hear the switch 'click' when in the right position. Mine is very touchy. I've even had to press in on the side of the basket while shredding to make sure that the ridge and the switch are making contact.

Hope this helps!

Shredder Motor goes in reverse, but will not run or shred, or go forward


The first thing you want to check is the mechanical paper feed sensor. It is located in the center of the paper throat. A switch that gets pushed back when paper is inserted. Sometimes paper gets stuck behind it and you can jiggle the switch to work it loose. If that does not work try moving the basket around a little, this unit has a magnetic safety interlock switch located under center of basket. If niether of these help you please contact us at Fellowes Customer Service 800-945-4545.

Safety Interlock "Switch"


This is not the safety interlock switch. This flat bar keeps shredder paper from backfilling into the cutters. The safety interlock switch is a vertical slot on the body that a tab on the top fits into.

Paper shredder


The only solution with respect to safety is to order a new switch from the companuy that manufactures/sells this shredder, and mount it according to the manufacturer/sales company's instructions.
If you want to bypass the safety of the machine, just keep the cables (should be 2, + eventually a ground cable) open, or shorted, depending of the machine's configuration. Remember that this is on your or your collegaues own risk!! A shredder can easily bite your finger off!
