Manual reversing
To prevent paper clips from damaging the cutting unit, the machine is equipped with a metal
detection system.
If you press the reverse button, the cutting unit
runs in reverse and switches off after 2 seconds, even if you keep the button pressed. To
reverse manually, release the button and press
it again.
If the shredder is already running forward,
pressing the button immediately reverses it.
Shredded material container
Both cutting units stop when the paper or CD
container is full.
The CDs and credit cards fed into the machine
are counted. Once the maximum number has
been reached, the machine switches off and a
signal is emitted. The counter is automatically
reset if the door is open for longer than 5 seconds after the signal. In addition, a light barrier
monitors for blockages on the material chute.
Automatic oiler (cross cut only)
The cutting units are oiled for 1.5 seconds after:
• The cutting unit is in operation for 200 seconds (corresponding to 50 paper shreds)
• The cutting unit runs forwards after the
reverse button has been pressed
The “Oil reservoir empty” signal is automatically deactivated after the reservoir is filled. The
shredder remains operational even when the oil
reservoir is empty.
Cleaning and maintenance
Switch off the shredder and pull out the mains
plug. When cleaning only use a soft cloth and
a mild soap-water solution. However, no water
must enter the equipment.
Oil the cutting unit when
cutting performance decreases or the device becomes noisy, or every time
you empty the waste container:
• Spray special cutting apparatus oil through the
paper feed opening along the entire width on
to the cutting rollers.
• Let the cutting unit run without paper in brief
Paper dust and particles are shaken off.
