Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Staples Shredder SPL-S302D I think I need a new paper sensor. The shredder is set on auto, but as soon as the paper starts to feed-in, it stops. I have to turn it on and off several times before it shreds the paper, then it keeps on running after the paper is shredded. Can you advise?

Take a look underneath where the shredding mechanism is and remove every bit of paper. It is a messy job, but necessary. When you finish, the shredder probably will function normally. Also, ignore the advertised sheet capacity and feed one sheet at a time. Stop when the bin is half full, dump it, and repeat the bit-by-bit cleaning process. I just went thorough this exercise yesterday!

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.

You can clean the sensor with a alcohol and be sure there is no jam occur. If it doing fine then it's work and there's no more problem. Always clean it, a jam can cause motor to heat up and it's winding will be burnt.
I hope my advice help you.
