When the START button is pushed, the “AUTO” LED will light. Insert
paper to shred. The shredder will start and stop automatically when

If paper is too small for the shredder’s sensors to detect, shred it
manually. Push the START button once more and the “MANUAL” LED
will light. Insert paper to be shredded. Three minutes after shredding,
the cutter automatically stops rotating.

standard modes, the shredder will automatically operate in reverse. If
this occurs, remove the inserted paper and shred in smaller amounts.

according to paper quality, humidity and voltage. If the shredder is to
be used continuously, do not insert more than half of the maximum capacity.
