I have the same problem with my shredder. I opened it up and found one of the gearwheels had teeth missing. That is why the partial shredding could not advance further. I was able to remove the part and am now hunting for a replacement.

your bin full sensors are dirty or broken to clean access bottom side of shredder head and look for a set of screws on each end of the paper throat. There you will see two little bulbs (bin full sensors) these have more than likely gathered paper dust and need to be cleaned with a Q-tip dipped in a little Isopryl Alchohol. This should solve your problem. If you have any questions just call us at 1-800-945-4545. A Customer Service Representative will assist you.

OK lets try.
You likely have a photo sensor that detects the paper and it is dirty.
It is likely covered with paper dust (hopefully only on the outside)
Locate the sensor and wipe it off or just wipe the entire throat area.
WITH MACHINE OFF
Hope this helps

first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.
