Shredder does not start
At power up, we do not have the 2 green lights on.
The start button does not launch it.
The shredder is brand new. What is missing ?
Did you check if everything is closed and correctly in place? (Hopper and filter screen in place, and interlock guard door closed)
The following article describes more possibilities: Troubleshooting: When the shredder does not start.
Please let me know if you are able to find the cause or not!
This is Tim from 3D FilaPrint - we are having the same problem - shredder switches on and the fan comes on - but the 2 main lights are not illuminating. The machine worked for a good 20 minutes beforehand. We switched it off to clean - all seems to have been put back in place correctly.
We have followed the troubleshooting guide from start to finish, including the main interior switch under the hood, which was set correctly and also tested the fuse, which is ok, but still no luck, the shredder will not power up.
Any ideas what to do next?
This problem could be caused by the inductive sensors. I have sent you a private e-mail with a manual on how to check this. I am not sharing it on here, because it explains a way to bypass the machine's safety mechanisms 😊 .
i have exactly same problem as described above. shredder all of sudden isnt starting. its almost new machine not used more than 3-4 times max.
Hello @yusuf-mullari-se ,
I am very sorry about this situation.
Thank you for letting us know.
I am going to send you the guide by email in just a minute.
If there anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
I have almost the same issue.
I just received the shredder. I use it 1 hour (700 gr PLA)
But now it does'nt work anymore.
The two green light are ON.
I press the green button 1 second, it light on and the red button turn off. But the motor doesn't rotate. And the two green light are still ON.
Same with reverse button.
(I waited 1h, the motors seems totaly cool)
Any tips or action to know where is the problem ?
Dear @germainl ,
Thank you very much for this detailed explanation.
I am very sory about this situation. That does not seem to be caused by the magnetic switches or the temperature, since both lights were green.
This must be related to the inductive sensors.
I will send you an email in just a minute.
Please let me know if there anything else I can help you with.
