SOURCE: i have a sentry fire safe and the plastic gear

If someone attempts to open the locked safe by forcing the safe handle to the open position it can strip the plastic gear. So even if you have the correct safe code and the batteries are fully charged the safe will not open. If you can lay the safe on its side (hinge side on the floor) gravity and banging the side of the safe with a hammer may cause the bolts to unlock. Unfortunately, if this doesn't work you will need a locksmith to open the safe.

Good luck.

P-45c shreeder motor runs but blades do not turn got all paper out but still do not turn


David,
More than likely, you have stripped the plastic gear inside. Those gears can sometimes be difficult to find and purchase. I would suggest trying to open up the top so that you can confirm if the gear is stripped. I would also suggest not putting as much paper through the shredder as they say it will handle. Hope this helps!

Where is the fuser located on MXC 311


Hi,
The fuser unit is located in the right hand side of the machine. If you open the right door, inside the upperpart of the machine you will see 2 grey handles, 1 towards the front of the machine, the other towards the rear. If you pull these handles out you can then remove the fuser unit. There are 3 known faults for loud fuser noises,1 is the fuser drive gear inside the machine strips the teeth on it, second, the main drive gear in the rear of the machine strips the teeth(usually caused by the 1st problem getting broken teeth stuck in the remaining teeth causing the drive motor to strip the main drive gear) & thirdly, the pressure release mechanism breaks on the fuser unit itself. If it is any or these then unfortunately you will need the assistance of a dealer to replace the damaged parts.
Hope this helps.
Dave.

My crafstman garage door opener goes down and then


Remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear and is probably stripped.

First plastic gear driven from motor pinion has


I have a simple solution if you can think outside of the box. When my gear stripped, I chucked away the electrics, and now drive the shredder via a crank handle on the side. It gives good excercise, and isn't difficult to turn with anything up to 6 or so sheets.
If you want to do this, open the machine, and remove the smaller gear at the opposite end of the drive (take off the circlip) to expose a hex shaped shaft. You can also chuck all of the electrics, and all but the two gears that are on the shredder shafts. Then cut a hole through both the top casing, and through the bucket, to line up with the shaft end and allow a 9/16 socket to pass through. When reassembled, there is sufficient room to drive the mechanism with a standard 3/8 drive ratchet, although you could make a fancier drive with a handle on.
Happy Days

Driver door will not open from inside


Your inside door handle is probably broken. The gear has stripped causing it not to work. Remove the door panel to verify the rod for the inside handle is not moving. .
