Question about Fellowes PS60C-2 Shredder

Spare parts available PS60C-2

Hi,
Our Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder has stripped the teeth off of one of the nylon cogs driving the top (closest to the switch) toothed cylinder, all other parts are working perfectly (motor, circuit board, etc, etc). If you are looking for parts, then you can have it for free (except for postage!). I will hold onto it until Monday 20th October, at which point it will be binned.
Thanks,
Simon

    Hi drawkcab2000,
    As you can see from the fixnerd post above that the plastic shell might need to be parted from the machinery. As i mentioned in the first post, one of the smaller nylon cogs has lost it's teeth. I attach an image that might explain it better. It is the smaller cog on the same spindle as the larger cog in the image. All the other cogs are sound. I am based in Oxford, United Kingdom.

    Hi Frank,
    Thanks for the reply, I have bad news, sorry. I was just checking to see how to get the cog off the spindle and notice that the cog I thought was sound actually has 1 sheared-off tooth. I guess it must have happened crunching the broken teeth of the other gear. I hadn't been able to check in detail as the spindles were seized at covered in grease. Not sure what to recommend for you. I had seen somewhere on the internet a company that can re-fabricate nylon gears (globalspec.com has a listing that might help). Really sorry to get your hopes up on this one.
    Regards,
    Simon

    I just got a "freebie-broken PS60C-2 gift" shredder. It has 2 broken gears and a slightly cracked plastic gear case. The drive gear [plastic/nylon?] on the front cutter shaft [closest to the front of the shredder] is cracked into 2 pieces. The next adjacent gear [largest gear with 2 sets of teeth] has undamaged teeth on the large [outside] diameter, but the smaller inner set has almost all teeth damaged. Apparently when the first gear broke apart the teeth of the 2nd gear broke apart and forced a piece into--and damaged the plastic case. Does anyone have any ideas how I might deal with it?

I have one that if I can't find the plastic plate that keeps the paper from wrapping around the shredder spools will be toast. I'm in Vanc, WA. I may try to fabricate the plastic piece in a tin version but I suspect that my time is better spent buying another brand.
Shoot me an email if you can help me or if I can help you.

I'll take that shredder for spare parts in order to resuscitate our school shredder, if it is still available, and postage isn't prohibitive. What's broken on ours is the plastic top and bottom, NOT the heavier parts, so I'd take just them even more happily . . . .

Write me back and I'll discuss details.

I need to replace one of the smaller nylon gears on my PS60C-2 Shredder. Would be interested to know if this is still available.

Thanks

    Hello,



    It still sounds like one of your small gears (cogs) is in good condition. All the other parts on my PS60C-2 are OK. Please let me know how I can make arrangements to obtain the working small gear and what amount I need to send you.



    Thanks,

    Frank

    Hi Simon,



    Thanks for your interest anyway. I'll keep looking and perhaps another source will turn up.



    Regards,

    Frank

Sometimes they hide another screw under the label. Try running your finger over the label and see if you can find a small dent, if you find one, then that is where the other screw is located.

The cog below is shattered on the spindle and the bottom one, the skew spindle has chewed a hole in the cog in one place. I would like them all replaced with bronze.

Od700c shredder: motor spinds, blades don't move


Inside the motor assembly there are a series of nylon cogs , a large one of which interacts with a metal one.  This is the most likely place you have one or two teeth missing from the large nylon cog that drives the shredder blades.

Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred


there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.
