Customer Question

Dear Expert, My Bosch AXT Rapid 2200 Shredder jammed while attempting to shred some leathery palm leaves. To free it I had to remove the cover and the six screws holding down the cast plate over the cutter. I also removed built-up debris from cavities and crevices. I reassembled it but could not fully screw down the black knob that retains the cover. The machine will now not start. What do you suggest I try next, please? Yours aye, Colin XXXXXXX

Hello Colin, my name is ***** ***** the machine will not start until that black knob is fully screwed in as the knob has a safety switch underneath it. Try removing the cover again just in-case it is misaligned and then replace it ensuring the knob screws all the way in.
