Question about Office Shredders

1 Answer

Paper shredder My GBC Shredmaster 855x was having difficulty taking about 8 or 9 sheets of A4. I set it to foward and then reverse to try to free them. On the reverse the paper went into the housing and then there was a cracking sound. Something is now loose within the shredder and when it works it makes a grating sound that it didn't make before. The instructions say there are no user-serviceable parts. Can you help?

GBC shredmaster 1150x shredder now runs only in reverse. And when I press the "reverse" button, the green "forward/shred" light comes on, rather than the red "reverse" light....


The first thing that comes to mind is that the switch is faulty and that one of the contacts has come loose and is shorting across the reverse contacts. There is little else that can go wrong with a shredder, so in this case try replacing the switch.

It will not grab the paper; need to press forwared


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

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up 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

My shredder is stuck in reverse. How do I get it to go forward?


Unplug, open and remove all partly shreded paper fron the underside, then try it again. If it is hot to the touch, let it cool for about 15 minutes before trying it again.

DISCONNECTED WIRE


I clipped all the zip ties to free up the harness and physically inspected every connector till I found a connector that seemed rather loose and came off with minimal force. I then gathered the 3 wires and install a #18 wiring nut. the shredder is fully functional again.
