It sounds like a bad switch assembly. I don't think spare parts are available.

Try blowing out the switches with canned air.

I INSERTED A THICK OBJECT INTO MY FELLOWES SHREDDER. SOME WAS SHREDDED-HOWEVER MOST OF IT IS STUCK IN THE TEETH OF THE SHREDDER. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING-BUT NOTHING WORKS. HELP1


I did that in my shredder and had to use the backwards option for a long time...forwards then backwards and pulling out the material little by little. It is a slow process...you can sometimes pry it a little but make sure you don't insert anything while shredder is operating. I always unplugged mine when trying to tug the stuck paper out of it. You don't want to take any chances. Good luck!

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

Shredder will only go in reverse. Waste bin full warning coming on. Waste bin is empty.


Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
or you can
switch the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred.

My fellowesps60c-2 shredder will run in reverse, but when I turn it to forward, it runs for a second then the red light comes on as if it is full, but its not. help! thanks


Look for a swinging plate underneath of the shredder head unit, sometimes the switch gets dust in it...blow out.

If you have a notched wheel on the right side, blow out the sensor and make sure it's not bent.
