SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.

You might have broken the actual mechanism enabling it to move forward. To be honest, your easiest solution would be to buy another shredder rather than attempt repair if this is the case, they're so cheap now.

SOURCE: For the ID Armor ID-XC200D, where should I place

You don't use liquid oil. At the office supply stores they carry oil sheets that you insert just like shredding something. They come ion various pkgs. Staples and Office Depot stores carry them. They are universal, no model number needed. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: the shredder will not accept any paper, the green

This is a very simple device: the motor that powers the shredder mechanism is controlled by just 2 simple commands - a manual button on top of the case and a sensor. The manual button has a reverse function to allow for the removal of debris an/or jams or if you changed your mind. If the shredder goes constantly in reverse then that manual button is stuck on reverse mode - move it until it gets unstuck.
If it's not fixing this way then you will have to either return it (if it's still in the warranty - it should be, it's only 2 months old and the warranty should be 1 year) or you must open the top case, access the button and either replace the button (if you can find an original one) or bypass it completely - you will have to plug and unplug it instead or add an on/off button on the power cord.

SOURCE: I was given an ID Armor 1506x shredder, it

Hello

If the shredder only works in reverse,this indicates a blockage somewhere.The sensor at the center of the shredding console must be engaged to activate the forward shredding process.

Clear any blockage by placing the power switch in "Auto" and pressing the "Manual Forward" button for about five seconds

Where can i buy parts for my id armor shredder


Your question, while it does state "parts," doesn't specify which parts. The reason why my answer isn't going to tell you, is because the "parts" can vary from the safety flap all the way to the motor that drives the shredder blades.
My suggestion is that you find where you can be eco-friendly with the shredder's disposal and purchase a new one. If you are looking for a part that has anything to do with the workings of the shredder (blades, on/off switch, paper sensor motor), you are going to wind up spending almost as much as a new one would cost and perhaps even more. Plus you have to take into consideration, the time you would spend doing the repairs; surely your time is worth at least $10 an hour. You are most likely going to spend too much time making the repair. Believe me, I tried to fix one once (it was successful, just the "bellows" that expands to change the setting of the "normally off" micro-switch back to off) and it took me a couple of hours.
Purchase a new one and forget about "saving" money by doing the repair yourself.

Wont turn on


If you can lift the cutting head up from the waste bin
It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and/or long nosed pliers and poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while.
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

Won't turn off after shredding in automatic mode


This means that sensor located in the middle of feed opening has been jammed in down position. To clear this sensor arm you can try shredding strip of thick cardboard, but running it through in the very centre of the feed opening. Failing that clear the jammed paper using tweezers in addition to that you could soak the blockage between rollers with WD-40 or some lubricant. Give it a good soak, once paper softened and loosened complete clearing jam with tweezers. Your unit will operate like a dream!! Good luck

Why is my ID Armor ID-XC200D making a horrible noise when I shred?


kkrenn641:

That "horrible noise" is probably caused by the shredder gears meshing improperly. If you disassemble it again and look carefully at the gears, you will most likely see that some are not mating properly... Usually the motor gear and the first idler gear that meshes with the motor gear. If those two gears seem to be separated a bit, or slightly mis-aligned look carefully at where the motor mounts, and you may see that the plastic "bed" where the motor is mounted has melted from heat from the motor. This is caused by using the shredder too long without letting the motor cool down. You may be able to shim the motor housing to realign the gears, if you have the patience!

I have a ID Armor 15-Sheet Cross Cut Shredder.. The problem is it runs constantly on the auto position.. I cleaned the paper eye with canned air & swabs but it still runs all the time.. Can you suggest...


lots of shredders having problems like this. Easy way is to turning off the machine when you don't use it. Harder way is to disassemble it and clean everything you can. Maybe you will have to replace a sensor with new one. You have to spend some money:(

Stopped working while i was using it


Mine does that when it jams, or overheats. Try toggling the switch between forward and reverse to clear any jam. If that doesn't work, you can unplug the unit, turn it over, and remove jammed paper with needle nose pliers.If there is no jam, try letting it cool for a while and then try in the reverse position.

My shredder runs but won't grab the paper that I'm feeding into it, so nothing gets shredded. How can I fix this?


Look down into the slot to see if the teeth are sharp. They should have little J-hook thingys that look like the teeth in your mouth. If it looks ok, give it some food to chew. If it burps it up, throw it away because its a junker and not worth your time.

Good Luck.
