Olympia shredder 1280.6

My Olympia paper shredder will not shred paper. The red light, along with the green light is now on. I don't have a user manual with this machine. Anyone have any suggestions on fixing the shredder or finding a manual for it. Thanks.

    I have an Olympia shredder 1300.1C. The shredder will not feed paper or shred. The feed tray red light comes on when I connect to the outlet. There is not a significant paper jam. I have cleared out the debris. Is there a circuit breaker that can cut out the power? I don't see any burnt components. Please advise.

On this model, make sure the hopper is all the way in. If it is, remove paper hopper and check to make sure the hopper is not broken. There is an electromagnetic switch in the front and the hopper has a magnet built in to it. run a stick magnet across the right underside and front to see if it extinguishes the light. If not, then the board is bad.

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.

RED Light is on (left of the green light)


Reverse shredder and clean out as much paper shred as possible. Use some lube oil. Hairclipper oil and canola vegetable oil are good choices.

I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!


There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

I have a Royal VF1000MF shredder. While shredding


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More assistance with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder back to good condition it looks like you might have to get a new paper shredder. Great place to learn about new paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Royal VF700 won't barely shred one sheet of paper. It givexs the overload red light when 1 sheet of paper has just barely started to be shredded.


Royal. Haven't heard of that brand. Could get in contact with tech service, but it's probably easier to grab a new paper shredder.
Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Need a sensor switch for fellows powershred 220. Won't sense paper.


The top sensors may be bad or even the main board that they are connected to is bad. Try cleaning them with a lightly moistened swab or compressed air. Fellowes will sell you the parts.

Olympia Shredder Jammed and not working


likely a spacer has broken, if you can see the underside of the cutting heads you will see a spacer or two hanging out, If this is the case the heads will have to be bebuilt or replaced.
