I have a Ativa MD 1000 that I just bought. It ran for a few minutes the first time I used it an then stopped. I turned it off and unplugged it in case it had overheated. The temperature light did not come on. I wait for over 30 minutes and tried using it again. I was able to shred a couple of sheets of paper and it stopped again. The next morning I couldn't get it to work at all. The green ready light is on but the shredder will not start. I can't tell if anything is stuck in it. How do I getting running?

Ativa shredder X1800 - shredder does not respond. green light present. Reverse works fine. I killed it with too much shredded paper.


Unplug it. Lift the shredder unit off the catch-bucket. Remove any paper caught in the blades. You may need needle-nose pliers to pull jammed paper out from between the cutters.

I have an ativa shredder model MD 1250. Became jammed on some staples. Reversed it and pulled it out but no the auto shutoff won't work Is it fixable? The shredder still runs.


Robert,
Double check that you do not still have any paper that may have become stuck in front of the sensor for the auto shutoff. If there is something in front of the sensor it will keep running.

I placed less than 12 sheets of paper in the ativa 1250 shredder. it's reading overload. can you help?


The problem seems to be the plastic gears and/or bearing supports. Unless it is in warranty, it's going to cost you more to repair than replace, and even then Ativa's customer service is not the best and neither are their shredders: I suggest you look at http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/ativa-paper-shredder-c31646.html?page=2

Just purchased ativa MD 460C and it will not work. misaligned is highlighted. can u help solve problem?


The misalignment message is about the catch bin and the shredder! NOT THE TEETH!
Check to make sure the shredder is properly placed on the catch bin. There is a built in safetymechanism in the Ativa MD460. When the shredder is replaced "backwards" the safety pin is not tripped.
Look for a curve in the lip on the back of the shredder and align it with the bin. Worse case, just pick up the heavy shredder top, turn the unit around 180 degrees and put back down. My light came onimmediately.

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Shredder runs continuously in AUTO position. It appears to use a photoelectric sensor for AUTO activation. I cleaned the window once with a swab and windex. It worked for a few days but is doing it again...


There are three reasons why:
1. paper particles or oil are still causing the optics to think you are inserting paper. Remove cover and clean thoroughly!
2. Optics are misaligned.
3. Optics are defective.

Pull out as much of the paper as possible. Then spray some window cleaner or similar on whats left to soften and disolve it.
