Depending on what you have available, either a damp paper towel or alcohol wipe, or compressed air will work to clean the sensor eye located top at the center of the paper feed opening, you should see a little dot wipe, or spray these out well, then turn the machine off and back on again.
built up dust from the paper causes the sensor to keep registering that there is paper coming in hence it won't stop on its own.

Automatic feed switch jamed with paper. reverse and forward several times may help. Otherwise turn it over and pull paper out of the bottoms to clear the switch jam.

Won t shut off


Blow out the sensors with some compressed air, Using a can of compressed air, look for the sensors that detect the paper and give them a blast or two, then try it, it may take a couple of tries.
This may also be a good time to lubricate the cutting heads, if it is a good machine with metal heads a light oil applied to paper then run through the shredder will pass the oil onto the heads.
A shredder oil or light oil like 3 in 1, these usually have a narrow nozzle to limit the oil flow, draw lines, do a picture or spell your name on the paper with oil and shred it. You have just serviced your shredder.
If it is a less expensive shredder with plastic heads, shredding a couple if sheets of waxed paper will pass the wax onto the cutting heads reducing friction.

Hope this helps.

Whenever I sred a document the Shedder keeps running and does not automatically stop when the document has been sredded. Is this a fault or can it be rectified?


If the shredder has "eyes" where you insert the paper try cleaning them with a soft cloth( Unplug machine first.) If that does not fix it then most likely the pcb inside has gone defective....phone supplier to get replacement parts and prices.

HSM AMA 125HS-6 Starts to shreed and abuptly stops. Red light comes on next to a circl symbol.


Thickness of papers is too much. Feed only 1-2 pages at a time.

To clear, pull paper back out. Run reverse, then forward, then feed 1 page at a time using a clean edge.

Was shreeding paper and it stopped? cleand it. thought it might be over heated. compucessery mo.#ccs60061. Its new. Thanks Mark


some of the new shredders do that so you should get a shredder that has a warrenty so if this happens again you dont have to worry about haveing to buying or fixing the shredder because when you try to fix these type of machines you ether end up just causing the machine to be comepletly unusable or it works of a little wile and u have to try to fix it again instead i advise you buy a replacement Fellowes® PS-79Ci doesnt jam and can dice 12 sheets of paper

hope this helps
