Question about Aurora Electronics AS662C Shredder

Open Question

I have an Aurora AS1225CD that is jammed. Actually, after it jammed, I picked little shreds out of the "grinder," and now the machine seems to "run" or the shredder teeth might be rotating (I cannot determine for sure), but I cannot get it actually take the paper that I insert and to shred, as it is supposed to do. I bought a new shredder and would like to repair or recycle this shredder (the AS122...). Do you know how to repair this issue? Do you know who would take the shredder to use for parts? (I will pay the postage.) David W. Anderson 925-254-4885

SOURCE: My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode

Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.

First, try switching to reverse, alot of times, stuck paper will come back out in reverse. Then unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and with a small flathead screwdriver, knife, or tweezers, dig out pieces of paper. It takes alot of effort but by digging small pieces out, a little at a time, you can get most of the paper free.

SOURCE: will not shred will go in Rev

Okay, cleaning out the paper jam under the plastic cover freed up the switching mechanism and works.

Grinder is not working. Makes a clicking sound

There is probably a stone jamming the grinding teeth. You need to take the top off the grinder and pick/vacuum everything out of in the grinding department. The top of the grinder has the stationary grinding teeth attached to it.

Aurora shredder model as1019cs has jam

Run it in reverse for about a minute. If you have tried that, get a pair of needle nose pliers and clean out all shredding from the cutters. If you are handy, unscrew the bottom of the case from the top to access the cutting wheels, Use the needle nose pliers to remove all impacted shredding.

Anti jam light is on unit will not run

The "anti-jam" light actually is a jam light and it is notifying you that the shredder is jammed. If you turn off the power and examine the shredding unit you will find shreds of paper stuck in the mechanism. Removing all of the shreds will get your shredder back in operation and the anti-jam/jam indicator will be off

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.

I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

If I put the document in straight it won't shred. I can get it to shred if I insert it on the left hand side - there seems to be some kind of jam on the right hand side.

Unplug it first. If you are certain that there is a jam, take the top off and flip it upside down. Use a pencil or other object that is NOT YOUR HAND and try to remove some of the paper jammed up. It is also possible that there is only a sensor on the left hand side. If this is the case there isn't much that you can do. Hope this helps and tell me how it works out!

'Full light' blinks on and then off when you replace shred basket. Aurora AS1712x shredder. It's not full, won't work at all.

The sensor or button that tells it it's full, probably has paper dust or something jamming it. Clean it up without liquid and it will probably work.

Our Saeco Delux Magic coffee maker will not grind the coffee when we push the button. A light comes on that indicates that the grinder could be jammed.

The grinders run on a timer. If the grinders does not fill the doser in time you will get a light saying no beans. If this happens and there are beans in the hopper push the lever to the largest # and push the brew button again. This will clear the light and it should brew. If it is at the largest # already your beans are probably shiny and there is to much oil in the beans and this is what is clogging the grinder.

Jammed shredder

try shredding a old card, carefully but forcibly push the jammed plastic strip through the teeth.
might be faulty alignment of teeth, a factory defect!
