Repair. reverse is OK but will not shred


There is a light sensor that is blocked by the paper that tells the machine to turn on when paper is loaded for shredding, it is most likely blocked with debris for a previous shredding.

Shreds in reverse only


I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

Their are sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. Good chance one or more are dirty, blocked with paper shreds or just bad. Clean with compressed air and lightly moistened cotton swab.

Paper jam. Ready lite comes on but shreder will not start shreding


Common problem with paper shreds blocking the sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. You may have to remove the top of unit to properly clean. When removing top, be very careful with the short ribbon cable. Lift top slowly and then reach under and disconnect from main board. Once top is off, you can cycle motor by hand and try to remove shreds with needle nose pliers. Of course, disconnect power first.

Techsolutions TS-8000 runs continually when switch is on. Normally you need to feed it to start is in the on position


I have a TS2500 and it behaves in a similar fashion. It sounds like you may have a paper jam keeping the paper sensor switch turned on. The first thing to do is make sure that the container that collects the shredded paper isn't full. Everytime I fill mine up I have this problem. Emptying the bin and pulling the shredded paper from the bottom of the unit usually allows it to automatically shut off. If that isn't enough, make sure that you don't have a paper jam in the cutter rollers. The most important thing you can do is make sure the unit is unplugged before doing anything with the shredding mechanism.

Hope this helps.

Shredder stops in the middle of shredding and won't shred.


Is the paper bin full?....mine always shuts down when the paper bin is a little over half full.

Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse


Sounds like the sensor/switch that detects when the basket is full of clippings is stuck in the "full" position. UNPLUG this potential finger-eater and poke around on the underside with a pencil or something.
