Looking for a basket for a fellows 65c

You can only buy new one or block a microswitch inside. Basket from Fellowes PS-67Cs can be used too. If you use this shredder privately just block the microswitch.

Our shredder (Wilson Jones 1200) now has a very high pitched squeak when we shred anything. Really high pitched. We can't see if there's anything stuck (ie a staple) Is there a number we can call for...
* First, I'm not a Wilson Jones tech.*
*** the following are for information only. ***
* Our friend keeps dropping off shreader after some problem with them. She always buys a new (different) one and leaves the junk to tinker with. These are some of the common problems I've encountered.
* Not moving. Totally jammed with paper! I had to use a blunt tool to back out the wheels. Careful as the blades are very sharp! It's best to use a wooden dowel to edge the blades back in the direction to loosen the stuck paper (be sure to unplug shreader!)
* Cracked case or inner frame. If it cracked under normal use then there is a design flaw or something fell on it. Only a complete swap out of equip will work as any glued on plastic parts will break again under load.
* Sensor is knocked off or damaged. Again, too much paper. Replace unit.
* Squeeks are caused by paper, staples, plastic (CDs) getting caught between the wheels and comb. Reversing helps, but some have to be physically removed. Again, unplug and check for the stuck debris. Remove with tweezer or needle nose plier. Careful of sharp blades!
* Squeeks will usually stop after a time as you continue to use the shreader. Debris will wear out and drop. Just keep in mind that whatever was shreaded when the squeeking started. That item should be avoided and only shreaded in small quantities at a time, alterating between regular paper.
* Check with the MFR if there is a lubricant, spray that is required. I use silicone spray sometimes when I have a lot of shreading to do. (Check with MFR)
* Final; Commercial shreaders tend to be large enough to get your hand or clothing stuck in the machine. Call for service to be safe.

Reverse shred does not work

either the switch is unplugged or defective, or the main board needs replacing. Also, they come with a 2 year warranty. try calling 1-800-955-0959 for fellows end-user support and have serial # ready (ser.# is found when you open the door).

Shredder wont shred.

the cutter wheels are probably filled with paper shreads, you need to unplug the shreader and clean the blade by hand

The shredder runs perfectley in the reverse direction, but does not run at all in the shredding direction

I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it

Shreader Malfunction

If the gears are stripped it will cost more to buy them and pay for the shipping if it is not under warranty. You also have to think if the gears are stripped what caused this to happen. It probably put a lot of stree on the motor also. So you may not have a loy of time left on your motor. I hope this will help you.
