Question about Memorex Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Memorex Shredder, Model MPS-2800. The red light on the bin full indicator stays on constantly. The shredder will not turn on or off or reverse. Do you have any suggestions? There is possibly a part broken on the underside, but, I'm not sure about that. The part that it looks like it could be is a "flap" that it looks as if one of the "legs" may be broken that goes down and activates the switches.

Check for stuck paper and remove if any. Then check if motor is ok with a multimeter and also main switch.

For me, the problem was the sensor connections. I took the unit apart (7 phillips screws, I'm not sure why I didn't have to remove the 8th.) Then I took the paper sensor unit off (2 more phillips screws.) Then I removed the little black box that both sensor wires are connected to (1 more phillips screw.) Then I pried that box open with a flat head screwdrive. Some parts fell out. I put it all back together and it worked.

If you don't want to mess with it, just remove the two wires and tie them together. The unit will always be on when turned on to Auto, but that's better than not working.

The plastic reverse pushbutton over the soft touch keypad is broken/stuck in or down causing this problem. A new pushbutton cover is needed. How are the Forward and Stop buttons?

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.

Do you ever need to lube a memorex paper shredder


ALL shredders need to be lubricated. When metal turns, it creates friction that, over time, can cause the blades to warp. Just like you have to add oil to a car, shredders must be oiled as well. You can buy bottles of oil at your local office supply store. Just squirt across the top of the blades. Or pour some on a plate, dip a piece of paper in it, then shred. If you want less mess, purchase the pre-lubricated sheets that you can just drop in and shred. Make sure to shred in reverse about half way through to get the best results.

Shredder wont shred


My boss has a shredder that will not run unless the bin is exactly centered in the bottom of the unit. There is a safety switch inside there, and a magnet to activate it. Make sure nothing is interfering with the bin or the shredder fitting together.
On other units, there is a slot that must match up with the shredder. It will only work one way. See of the shredder will turn around and put it on the bin the other way.

Office max shredder, says bin full but its not, only half full


I had the same problem. I found that the sensor on the shredder is light sensitive. The viewing window in the bin was letting too much light in and was triggering the bin full light to turn on. I covered the window with a piece of paper and then restarted the shredder.It worked fine after that.

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


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.
