The activation sensor is located on the top in the middle of the feed slot. If the activation sensor is no longer functional, there is no way to start the shredder while in "Auto/On" mode, therefore the sensor needs to be replaced.

For replacement information regarding this sensor you can refer to our troubleshooting page AmazonBasics B0050BPWBQ Troubleshooting .
