Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Mine stopped working and the overheat light comes on. it will run in reverse OK, but as soon as you go to forward and put a peice of paper in it, red overheat light comes on right away. Took it apart, inside was totally jammed with shredded paper and dust. Packed tight around the motor, gears, everything. It;s a miracle it didn't catch fire! Poor design. Motor commutator was badly glazed, took apart an cleaned it. Still sparks like mad. I think it's toast! Didn't really last that long (less than 2 years) and it wasn't cheap. It going in thr trash I think!

Sounds like a short,
power cord loose or shorting
motor going bad
disconnect from wall
open and check the plug connection, fix or if o.k
plug and see where sparks are coming from, if motor replace (or just buy a new one)
