These shredders have a "paper in" sensor. This is either optical or mechanical.
Sounds like the sensor is blocked and therefore "thinks" there is still more paper left, and this is why it keeps going.

Before you do anything UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
The sensor is located about in the middle and at the level of the blades.
If it's mechanical, you should see a little finger, else it is electronic.
Shine a light in the area and you should be able to spot where the blockage is.
A shot with compressed ais usually gets rid of the offending particles.

After you're finished working on it, set it back securely on the basket and plug it in.

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply. :)

    "I tried this, but it didn't help."

    I'd like to help you with that, but I have very little to work with at this point.
    Could you help me and elaborate a little?
    Like:
    What is the position of the switch? AUTO? FORWARD? REVERSE?
    How does it start?
    Does the shredder ever stop?
    Does it start going as soon as you plug it in?

    You can write me to: faxmando@yahoo.com if that's easier.

    Make sure shredder is unplug. For most shredders, look down the paper feed area and right in the middle, above the blades. You should see like two little openings, right on each side. Squirt some air into each of the opening. Should remove whatever dust is in there that is blocking the sensors.

I recently bought a Staples Shredder Model #SPL-TXC152A & has worked fine up until now. I emptied the bin as I have previously & bow shredder will not turn on.


There is a bin interlock switch that has to be closed for the shredder to shred. If the shredder mechanism is separate, look for a slot on the underside.

There is an optical sensor that needs to be cleaned. It is usually at the middle of the slot where you put paper to be shredded. Use canned air to blow out both holes (one on each side of the slot).
Hope this helps.

Where can I obtain a repair manual for a Staples SPL 1506X Shredder


You can't. You take it apart yourself, you find the cogs inside are plastic and shattered and you can't get replacements, so you have to buy a new one.

Make sure there is no paper blocking the sensors. Otherwise you may have a bad sensor or switch.
