To test SafeSense® move the power switch to the "on" position. The green ready light should illuminate and the shredder will run for a few seconds and shut off. This is normal.
Simply touch the shiny chrome area around paper entry throat. The yellow sensor light should turn on, indicating that the SafeSense® feature is working.
If the SafeSense® light is flashing continuously, this indicates that the SafeSense® feature is in the override position.
WARNING: The SafeSense® feature will NOT work when the override switch is activated. Reactivate SafeSense® before you begin to shred.
Use your manual to help locate where the SafeSense® Override switch is located on your model. Once this is located, flip switch to opposite position and re-test using instructions above. Note: some units do not have an override switch.
