Question about Staples SPLXC200D Shredder
Staple Model SPL-XC200D Paper Shredder, During the hurricane we lost power. When it resumed I could not turn my shredder on. I unplugged it. Waited, plugged in again. Display screen lights up then goes off. Hitting on button doesnot turn unit on. Paper bin properly seated. No paper clogs. Fuse checked and is OK. Tech from Staples says it must be a sensor which they can't supply or fix. Where can I get this part?
I found a way to do a fix that should last for awhile. Put the large gear in a vise leaving room to partially knock the small broken gear through. I used a bolt the same size as the hole in the plastic, and tapped it in about 1/4 inch. This pushes some of the small gear through, exposing more of the usable part of it. I then cut (hacksawed) off about 3/8 inch of the broken part, put it back together and it works!..................Good luck, Sparky

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.

I owe this to a Steve-EE.
Mine was the LED where the paper feeds. $1.69 for a 2 pack.
