Fellowes Intellishred PS-79Ci Shredder stopped working

The power button will not turn the machine on. It is not the outlet, when I open the drawer, the red indicator light comes on, but no power what-so-ever.

SOURCE: Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred

there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.

SOURCE: Fellowes PowerShred PS 40 with defective switch

Its just seated together with the gear/blades housing ,

make sure you didnt miss one screw, then pry and pull upward its just stuck as the gear housing and blades are pressed in and seat firmly making it seem like its stuck , over time all that paper goo is also binding it up .


Heres a few sites that have gears another that has manuals you may have to call or email as not all parts are listed on website

Fellowes Paper Shredder PS-79Ci power switch not working -- will not turn on!


Have you looked at the shredder blade to see if anything is still there? Turn power off, check shredder blade, clear anything stuck, put back together, turn power on and try again.

Won't turn on...


You don't say what type it is, but they usually have little micro switches fitted to ensure the power won't come on until the blade section is fitting properly to the waste container part.
If it is the bucket type with the shred part on top just make sure it rests properly on top of the bucket so the microswitch on the bottom of the shred part gets depressed.
If it's a drawer type there may be a small projection on the drawer which pushes against a switch in the body of the shredder.

My Fellowes PS-79Ci Shredder will not turn on.


PS-79C Issue was the bin light came on (when the bin was out), but the power wouldn't come on and no other lights. Just called the 800 number above (800-945-4545) and was told to jiggle the power switch - worked!! (The power switch on the top, not the one by the power cord). I guess it doesn't quite seat onto the internal circuit board switch quite right. Yay, working again! Then I got lectured to oil it once a month or every bin full, which I haven't been doing...

Why is the fellowes blade still rotating even when there is no paper?


It is possible that a small shred of paper is lodged at the sensor underneath the cutting blade.
    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers or use canned air and blow the edges of the blades.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse.
    • 3 Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

Machine over heats and light oil light comes on. Where does the oil go?


Hi, you can place some oil on a piece of paper that you wish to shred & put that through your shredder. You do not need to saturate the paper, but use enough to lubricate your shredder.

Was shreeding paper and it stopped? cleand it. thought it might be over heated. compucessery mo.#ccs60061. Its new. Thanks Mark


some of the new shredders do that so you should get a shredder that has a warrenty so if this happens again you dont have to worry about haveing to buying or fixing the shredder because when you try to fix these type of machines you ether end up just causing the machine to be comepletly unusable or it works of a little wile and u have to try to fix it again instead i advise you buy a replacement Fellowes® PS-79Ci doesnt jam and can dice 12 sheets of paper

hope this helps
