Techsolutions Paper Shredder TS4500

My paper shredder is On?Auto and the green ready light is on.

When I put the paper in to shred nothing happens.
When I put it in reverse the blades turn fine.

What is wrong?

    I have the exact same problem and it seemed to happen suddenly!



    The only thing I can think of is the sensor is worn out? This shredder is about 4 or 5 years old. Can it be fixed or do I need to buy a new one?



    If it cannot be fixed, can just the top part be replaced? There is nothing wrong with the basked that the top sits on!

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

SOURCE: Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running

the gear inside the shredder must be broken. This is the wheel that connects the motor to the blades. its much cheaper to buy a new one that try to repair this.

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

SOURCE: the shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.

Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

My VF 1012mx paper shredder won't feed the paper in order to shred it. Green light is on but nothing happens when I put the paper in.


Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. 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

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.

It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.

The only solution with respect to safety is to order a new switch from the companuy that manufactures/sells this shredder, and mount it according to the manufacturer/sales company's instructions.
If you want to bypass the safety of the machine, just keep the cables (should be 2, + eventually a ground cable) open, or shorted, depending of the machine's configuration. Remember that this is on your or your collegaues own risk!! A shredder can easily bite your finger off!
