Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder

Open Question

Fellows model 38933 DM8C shreeder has a broken gear housing (outside half) is a replacement part available

Motor runs but will not pull paper into the cutters. Was making a loud thumping noise intermittently before it quit shreeding. White outside half of the drive gear housing is cracked open to the point where the gears are visable. Is it likely the housing only or the gears as well?

SOURCE: The wheel furthest from the drive motor doesn't turn.

Most parts are available. But probably have to buy whole cutter asm.

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!

I have the Royal SC120 model. The shredder does


1 or 2 gears are broken. royal doesn't make many replacement parts for their machines, might try calling royal at 1-800-222-2310. I would recommend replacing unit with a Fellows brand shredder. royal also makes Ativa brand- don't buy it either.

I have a DM8C that only runs for a couple of seconds at a time and then it stops. Toggle the switch back and forth and it feeds a little at a time until the page is completely shredded. It works okay in...


Common solution is to clean upper and lower sensors with cotton swab. If it still jams, then you will have to remove the top carefully and clean all paper shreds out of the housing. The paper shreds are most likely packed in the housing shroud and jamming or overloading the motor.

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?
