If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.

Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

SOURCE: Motor on / Blades don't move.

Hello,
Sounds like the internal gears or drive shafts are either broken, or out of alignment. Not exactly something that can be easily fixed usually. Hopefully, it's still under warranty?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: OD700C Fellowes Shredder blades don't turn

There is a screw hidden under one of the stick on labels. Remove that and the top comes just fine. I got it torn apart, completely cleaned of debris but the rollers still don't turn. I noticed an electrical arc when the switch is pressed so the unit is toast.

P-45c shreeder motor runs but blades do not turn got all paper out but still do not turn


David,
More than likely, you have stripped the plastic gear inside. Those gears can sometimes be difficult to find and purchase. I would suggest trying to open up the top so that you can confirm if the gear is stripped. I would also suggest not putting as much paper through the shredder as they say it will handle. Hope this helps!

Our C220c shredder does not shred, motor turns and blades turn but i think the blades are blunt. Can you get new ones or have the old blades sharpened?


There are 2 shafts that have the cutting blades on them and they both should turn. I have replaced many gears on this model and suspect that a gear is broken. Fellowes does not have many parts this model anymore. I would call a local shredder repair service or you can call Fellowes at 800-955-0959.

Fellows shredder powershred plastic pieces between blades.


It shouldn't be necessary to function, BUT, they are there to help keep stuff from getting jammed up, so be mindful and don't let shreds get stuffed in between. It will get compacted and really hard to get out.

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.

Where do i put the oil in a fellowes ps80c-2 paper shredder


You put it on the blades. Turn the shredder on to manual and oil the blades, do not oil as you are shredding. You will hear the motor start to speed up as you do this.

Short run time and redlight, stops running Fellowes DM15C


There are two sensors (look like little light bulbs) on the top part of the shredder at either end of the blades. If you pull out the drawer and turn the shredder upside down you will see them. They get dirty telling the machine that it is full and needs to be emptied. Clean the sensors off with an alcohol wipe. If cleaning them does not work you need to replace the sensors.
