My Bosch Shredder Model AXT25D does not work when switched

This answer was rated:

My Bosch Shredder Model AXT25D does not work when switched on. A high pitch note is heard and that is all. The chopping blades will not turn by hand when the machine is switched off. What can be the cause of my problem.

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ I would suggest that you have something jammed in the cutting head, the motor has seized or something has sheared off. I attach a link to the illustrated parts list which will allow you to disassemble the shredder and find the cause of the problem.

The fault lies in the override switch. The high pitch note was the clue.

Excellent glad you were able to rectify
