Questions & Answers for Dynex - 5-sheet Cross-Cut Paper Shredder - Black/Silver

Question

Product reliability

We bought this shredder several months ago. We have used it to shred only a few pieces of paper. It is not working any longer. Before this, we had bought same model earlier and returned it as it had also gone bad. Is this what we should be expecting from this model?

I'm just a customer so I'm not sure on what the standard for these is, but I've purchased one for my home office and used it for 6 months without a problem and then also bought a second one for my office at work.

I don't use them extensively. Only about 5-10 pages daily (if even that) but I haven't had a problem with these at all. No promises on this, but Dynex is a Best Buy Brand. They manufacture it, so the warranty should be easy to be taken care of since it's right in-house. You'll probably have to call 888-Best-Buy for warranty stuff though.

Good Luck. That's a bummer that you had 2 in a row not work though.

Yes. After about 8 months, mine would do nothing when I placed a piece of paper into it. Then, 20 seconds later it would realize "oh hey, I need to shred this!" and it would eat it up. Now, about a year later it is totally dead. Right when the warranty expired.

answer 2
they are small strips roughly 1.5 - 2 inches long. Definitely not strips as long as the page but also not as small as a micro-shred shredder. (which is basically confetti when it comes out). I've added a pic for you to see the size. In the top left corner is a AA Battery so you can size it up.

answer 2
Slide the Power button to Reverse (rev) position:

Rev(R): Clears the cutters of paper that has not
passed through in the unlikely event of a paper jam.
Never attempt to clear a jam by using the reverse
function until you have emptied the wastebasket.

We don't have pictures of how to install the switch. It's not designed to pop out at all. If you can't push it back in, then I would recommend taking it to the Geeksquad to have them look at it and see if they can get it back on for you.

Question

Dynex ps05cc micro switch location

I removed the cover by removing 6 screws. I cleared a paper jam. A micro switch was loose inside the cover. How and where does it go back in? The micro switch on the end gears is in place.

The switch is likely for detecting that the shredder units is securely placed on the paper bin. It keeps the shredder from being turned on when it is not placed on the waste bin.
