PRODUCT MAINTENANCE
OILING SHREDDER
Cleaning Auto-Start Infrared Sensors
All cross-cut shredders require oil for peak performance. If not oiled, a
machine may experience diminished sheet capacity, intrusive noise when
shredding, and could ultimately stop running. To avoid these problems, we
recommend you oil your shredder each time you empty your waste bin.
Paper detection sensors are designed for maintenance free operation. However, on rare occasions the sensors
may become blocked by paper dust causing the motor to run even if there is no paper present.
(Note: two paper detection sensors are located in the center of the paper entry).
FOLLOW OILING PROCEDURE BELOW AND REPEAT TWICE
