My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode
I have a Tech Solutions TS4500 shredder and lately when I shred something it keeps running. I have to unplug it to mske it stop. I opened up the shredder part and cannot see anything stuck in the teeth. I spent about an hour trying to clean out paper parts from the teeth. I have shredded some papers with labels attached (sticky) and do see very small parts of label attached to the teeth. I tried to remove them all to the best of my ability. I hold the shredder up to the window and can't see anything blocking the teeth. Is there a reset or something? Can you help me figure out why this thing won't stop running? Thanks much.

If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.
If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.
It sounds like you may have a gear with a broken tooth you should contact the manufacturer to get more info. Usually when this is the case it will shred good for only a few revolutions and then reversing backs the gear up to a position that allows it to turn the cutters until it once again reaches the area where tooth is missing.
