Question about Compucessory CCS60076 - High Security Shredder

1 Answer

I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!

I have tried turning it off, turning it back on, unplugging it and waiting about 15 seconds, looked for a reset button, it doesn't appear to be jammed. green light will come on for about 1 second, then goes immediately to red. will not shred paper at all now.

There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

Embassy shredder open door light won't go off after emptying bin. Therefore no shredding


The shredder probably has some kind of switch or sensor that detects that the bin is in its correct installed position. The interlock may be broken or blocked by paper shreds. An inspection inside the bin recess may reveal the cause so that it can be corrected.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

Fellowes S8-95C is full, but can't get it open. Help!


I was able to pull really hard and open the bin 1-2". I turned the unit on its side over the trash can and some shreds came out. I alternated shoving a sturdy metal rod inside (first an aluminum architectural ruler then the longer handle of a squeeze clamp) to loosen up the shreds and tipping the machine on its side to get some loose shreds out. After doing this enough times I was able to dislodge the dense clumps and remove the drawer. Now that the machine is empty there is a red light on and it does not shred.....UPDATE: turns out somewhere along this rough process (paper was in rock solid clumps) a small piece of the door that presses the "door closed" switch broke off. Jammed a piece of cardboard in there and it shreds again, although it does not automatically turn off when the door is open.

Staples SPL-770M shredder with overheat light even when cool


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.

The drawer to the shredder will not pull open


You have to get the drawer out to get to the screws holding the top on.
