Tech solutions TS 8000?

my tech solution TS 8000 will work in reverse by will not work in the auto mode

Running in reverse is just from the reverse switch being operated. Use the switch and it will just do it.

Running forwards needs the switch set to forwards AND a sensor switch that detects something is in the shredding path.

It might well be the sensor switch - usually a lever or tab in the intake throat - is broken. Possibly the shredder was reversed to clear a jam and has broken the lever.

You'll need to take it apart to see. I doubt spares will be available. You might be able to improvise. I did a while back for mine but it was only buying time.
