    Red light stays on and can't ooperate the shredder. It will go in reverse. No jams, door is securely shut, just won't operate.

SOURCE: Red Light on, but no jam

Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.

SOURCE: SHREDDER STOPS (RED LIGHT) VERY FREQUENTLY

there are what is called strippers that ride in between the teeth to keep paper from building up. they are plastic and can break after awhile. sounds like you have some of the stripper combs broken.

SOURCE: paper gets jammed. Even shredding just one sheeet

The problem was solved by putting some oil on the top of the shredder and running the motor forward and in reverse to coat the teeth. Thank you.

SOURCE: Motor runs, but will not shred any paper, it won't

Sounds like the same problem im having. I opened mine up and the gears that run the teeth are stripped, and im having a real hard time finding new parts.

Dome light will not come on when doors are open


Have you pressed the dome light cut-off switch by mistake ? Look for a tab rocker switch beside the headlight switch on the daash that has your fog lights on one flap and dome on the other.. open the door and press the switch both ways... maybe your just in "no-dome" mode ...

Craftsman 1/2 hp garage opener opens and closes, but when it is finished closing the opener buzzes. When I put the door up the buzzing stops. The light has not worked for several years. I replaced


For the lights, very common the contacts get flattened out and melted. I see this every day. Unplug the opener and let it sit for about 30 min. I never wait but just to be safe, let the capacitor loose its charge. With a precision flathead screwdriver or fingernail, bend the contacts in the light socket out about 1/8". Should help. Buzzing concerns me a little. May be an electrical issue. These openers use an AC brushed motor. They get very hot and in rare cases can catch fire. Theres gear grease and dust inside that has ignited in a few motors. There is an overheat switch built in but dont count on it. I would suggest buying a new machine. Find a DC motor with a belt drive. They last the longest and require the least maintenance. Marantec make the best in my opinion.

My badger 5 garbage disposal just hums. There is no jam in the blades; they move freely in both directions. I've pressed the reset button and allowed the cold water to run. I've been working on it for 2...


When the motor goes bad, it begins to slow down until it stops.
That can happen suddenly, and now each time it hums, the motor is overheating and will never come back to life.
I wrote ez replacement step from days I worked apartment maintenance.

How do i use the primer rocker switch


A rocker switch is an on/off switch that rocks (rather than trips) when pressed, which means one side of the switch is raised while the other side is depressed much like a rocking horse rocks back and forth. A rocker switch may have a circle (for "on") on one end and a horizontal dash or line (for "off") on the other to let the user known if the device is on or off. Rocker switches are used in surge protector s, display monitors, computer power supplies, and many other devices and applications.
A rocker switch with independent circuitry can have a light activated on the face of the switch in both the on and off positions, which allows the switch to be found easily in the dark. With dependent circuitry, the light is activated only when the switch is on.

Sebo Felix Premium Vacuum cleaner brush will not spin. Not the belt, already checked.


Just the other day we had a customer bring a Felix in to our repair shop with the same problem. Although she'd had the Felix for several years, she'd never realized that one of the buttons on the base is a foot-operated switch (the left hand one as you see it from behind the machine). Hers had been "on" from day one, and never been switched off... until she'd obviously inadvertently pressed it without noticing and switched it off. Then she thought something had broken.
It may be as simple as that. So, does the green light come on when you operate the foot switch? If it does, and the brush doesn't spin, you have most likely got a problem with the motor (or possibly the circuit board) in the base. If the green light does not come on, there is most likely a poor (or broken) electrical connection where the bag compartment plugs in to the base.
I'll gladly try to be more help if you want to post more details.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on


Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.
