SOURCE: Unjamed, but jammed light remains on and won't shred

Most likely the PC board has gone bad. It will cost over 100.00 from fellowes.

SOURCE: have power to board, but light, no motor operation

I don't think this model has a fuse on the PC Board but if it does, unplug the power cord.
Remove the top cover (2 screw front and 2 screw back). Check board and check all connections.

It's probably just a defective switch. The only other thing that would cause this problem would be a defective Main PC board.

Take it apart and clean the switch with compressed air.

Be careful when you put it back together that you don't allow the wires to touch the fan.

You also have to make certain that the small plastic teeth that seperate when you feed paper are aligned properly.

Good Luck

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.

My shredder will only work in reverse.


There must be a button on the shredder you need to push so it works forward, this button has 2 options: forward for shredding, and backward to push caught papers out of shredder.

The schredder runs backward, but forward does not.


Take care, because this thing can also shred your fingers.
Remove the plug from the outlet and try to remove the paper under the rolls. Us a tool, not your fingers. It even would be better, if you could put the top upside down, so you could see where the bulk of paper is clothing the wheels and the sensor.
I think you already emptied the bag under the shredder, because the paper full sensor also prevents the shredder from running forwards.

It wont go in reverse it only goes forward, the steering works fine


Hi
The ESC on this truck comes with a reverse lock out. The reason is that when you're racing, race requirements are that no reverse can be used. Now you may have accidently turned this on. Go to the Traxxas web site and download the ESC manual and follow the instructions for reverse lock out.

I have a tech solutions shredder. Envelope got stuck. I cleared it out. Now it will go backwards, but not forwards...although the green light does come on when I press the forward button.


There is probably paper, dust, or something still in the shredder somewhere obstructing the sensor. Run it backwards for a minute or so, then turn it over and blow it out, and after unplug the shredder and plug it back in. Then see if it runs forward.

Hi My PC Line shredder goes backwards as long as I want but will not go forward long enough to shred one sheet of A4.


If your shredder has an auto sensor "eye"to start it up automatically, check that it is clean you will see two windows near the paper mouth- give them a clean first thing. if not migvht be a switch or a burnt out motor in the forward direction ( or control circuitry)
Hope that helps

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

The scanner's paper sensor may be jammed. IT is sensint there is paper and hence scanning!. Try and fix it. Sensor may be optical or mechanical. If optical remove shreds of paper or dust. If mechanical ensure it moves forward and backward.
