cues to communicate any problems.
If the light below the thermometer is
illuminated, this means the shredder needs
to cool down. Simply turn off the shredder
and let cool for approximately 30 minutes.
If the light below the bin full icon is illuminated, this means the shredder bin
needs to be emptied. Unplug shredder, empty the bin and close the bin for use.
If the light below the icon of the bin with the door open is illuminated, this means
the door is not fully shut. Check to be sure the door is closed. Once it is closed
completely, the indicator light will turn off.

Protective Cover & Paper Guide
Black & Decker is committed to offering dependable, user-friendly products.
Our patent-pending Protective Cover delivers the security and peace of mind every user
desires. When closed, it simply snaps in place and covers the shredder opening, making it
difficult for children or pets to access the opening. It is also a simple visual cue that allows
you to see from across the room that your shredder is safe and secure.
To open the Protective Cover, simply press the button on the
front of the machine. This releases the cover and the front
button will pop out. The cover will then pop up. For use, lift the
cover to the open position. The shredder is now ready for use.
Once the Protective Cover is up, it also functions as a
convenient paper guide for added ease-of-use.
When not shredding, close the Protective Cover. You will
know it is secure when the cover snaps into place and the front
button returns to its original position.
This product is designed to shred paper, staples, small paper clips, credit cards, CDs and DVDs.
It is not intended to shred large paper clips, continuous forms, adhesive labels, transparencies,
newspaper, cardboard or any other plastic other than credit cards. Using it for these purposes
is likely to cause irreparable damage.
