Question about Dahle High Security 20634EC Shredder

1 Answer

Shredder will not work

I have a 20634 EC Dahle Shredder and i just installed a new oil pump. Everything went fine until I went to turn it on. It will not work now. It is run by a mother board, so there is no where to jump the switch to find the problem. Am I missing something? Is there a fuse or link that needs replaced?

If the oil tank is full you just need to disconnect the control cable for it and run it a bit without it...
after you plug it back in the oil level sensor should have reset and should run just fine... sometimes it takes a few attempts though.

The bin full light is illuminated and it beeps. We have changed the bag so that it is empty and the sound and light are still on. Help please.

Paper shredders are messy. Fine paper dust covers everything, get a can of compressed air and clean under the shredding wheels. Looking up from the bottom check for any sensors that might be plugged.

Helo, whe we start the engien, the rotor blade on the right side is turning, but the chain on the left side is not, how to resolve this?

Remove covers etc to gain access to left side chain and see what is seizing it, could be bad bearing, shaft, debris, chain itself etc.

Dahle 20396 thinks bag is full alarm

if you are using the auto oiler that alarm doubles as the low oil alarm. The low oil mark on the tank is not accurate. This frustrated me for weeks until I finally called Dahle and that's what they told me. JUST ADD OIL... I know its that easy!

Paper full warning on constantly

The most common reason for a false reading, where the bin full light comes on but the shredder basket is empty, is simply dirty sensors on the bottom side of the shredder head.

Does it make a difference which shredder oil I use? There are so many. I have a Tech Solutions cross cut TS8000.

You can use any kind of shredder oil. They are all priced so differently, I use fellows brand for my royal shredder & it works just fine.
