I bought an Aurora AS800CD paper shredder a short time ago

This answer was rated:

I bought an Aurora AS800CD paper shredder a short time ago and it has stopped working. It hasn't been used much but now works in reverse but works forwards only for about one second. I have checked for a paper blockage.
Please can you help?
Thank you in anticipation,
Susanna Yeomans
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
This is an issue with the sensor, or a jam somewhere (I saw you cleared all jams) but can you follow this video please and ensure you have.
Please let me know.

Dear *****,I am sure there is not a paper jam. What could be the issue with the sensor please?Susanna
ok, then the sensor has faulted, if your 100% sure nothing is blocking it at all.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the shredder to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Dear *****,Thank you for your help. I bought it from Amazon so I doubt whether I will get a replacement, but at least I know that there is nothing I can do to make it work.Susanna
