    I have the same problem. It started after I shredded some CDs, now the auto-stop feature doesn't work anymore.

Unit will not stop


Dear Hal,
Here is some generic information about shredders that may help you.
Most of the shredders have a micro switch that "senses" if the paper has been introduced to the shredding slot. These micro switches are activated by a little arm/leveler that touches the paper and activates de contact inside the shredder housing. Also, note that some shredders may have an optical sensor that may be "clogged" with paper dust.
If you shredder does not stop, the sensor may be stuck in a on position, or, in case it has optical sensor may be detecting dust or a little piece of paper may be blocking the optical sensor and keeping the motor running.
I hope this gives you some light in further investigating your problem.
Good luck!

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 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.
    • 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. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. 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.

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.

Fellows C-320/C-320C shredder runs continuously. It will not stop. I have cleaned the paper sensors, and nothing seemed to change. When the machine is on and running, I(Auto On), O(Off), and R(Reverse)...


sounds as if you will need to have the auto feed sensor replaced. if they fail it will just run, thinking it sees paper. your machine is under warranty for three years from the date of purchase. call fellowes and see if they have repair depot in your area. 1-800-955-0959

most of these shredders have tiny clip sensors that have little levers that are depressed when paper is fed into the teeth if the sensors get jammed closed then the shredder rollers will keep going try cleaning the rollers free of all loose bits of paper and you should be right

take care

Runs continuous when turned on, but stops when paper is inserted


I owe this to a Steve-EE.

Mine was the LED where the paper feeds. $1.69 for a 2 pack.

Shredder keeps running when no paper is inserted and previous shredding job is complete


Some shredders have a switch to run continuous if desired. Check for that first.

Another problem is that during a jam, the paper sensing switch can get bent causing the shredder to run continuous.

Runs continuously when in the on position.


there is paper jammed in front of the sensor. it was likely caused by feeding too much paper into the shedder at one time and now a chunk of shedded paper bits it blocking the sensor from seeing that the shedder is clear
