Aurora AS1015CD will not run in reverse or forward/not jammed

My shredder is about a year old. I have never had any problems with it. Today I go to use it and it is dead...won't shred, and it won't reverse.
Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse

I had the same thing happen to me today - I had just shredded a ton of stuff, emptied the bin 4 times - after emptying the bin the last time, all of a sudden it would only go in reverse. I pulled out my instruction manual and it says the motor might overheat and to let it cool down and try again. I let it cool down for about 1 hour, cleaned out the gears and dusted off the sensor and it started working even better than it did before.

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.

Very simple. It automatic mode, a small flag sensor is lifted when it paper enters the rollers. When this happens, this will turn on the shredding rollers. When the paper passes the flag sensor, the rollers stop turning.

What's happening is that a small amount of debris is stuck at the sensor. If your model has a reverse switch, try using that. If not, try manually pulling the stuck threads from the bottom. Once you get it unclogged, that should help.

The sensor is located in the middle of the rollers.

Try cleaning the sensors with a cotton swab and alcohol.

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

Looking for troubleshooting manual for Aurora Paper Shredder AS1015CD.


There is a trouble shooting on their web site for Auror!

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

Hi, my Aurora AS1002MSB is jammed and it will only go in reverse. Is there any way to fix it?


Hello,

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Good luck....

THe shredder goes in reverse, but not forward. I can see some paper in the opening, but none in the teeth. Is there anyway to take apart the top?

Don't open your shredder to repair it yourself because it will void your warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee.

It just works in reverse and won't run forward lioght on but will not run...


same thing happened with ares my brother went to shove an envelope through the thing and it was too much, it stopped working but still worked in reverse. so i took it apart and the reason why it wont work is because by the arrow there is a little peg that sticks out and when paper passes through it it flips down like a light switch and turns on but if it breaks what is going to tell the thing to turn on. im sorry to inform you but when this happens it is toast.

How do I oil the shredder?


Place some shredder oil on paper and run the paper through the shredder. This will lubricate the cutters.

Our Aurora AS1712X paper shredder is jammed in a couple of places with paper so badly that we cannot free the jam and the tooth wheels cannot turn freely. Is there an easy way to clear the jam?


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
