I have a Fellows paper Shredder. When I turn the switch on the motor hums loud and rotates very slow. If I push the reverse button it continues to hum but rotates in the reverse direction. I checked the capacitor and it measures 26 micro farads. The spec is 25 so I think that is good. I have 11 ohms across the capacitor leads and I have 5.5 ohms across each capacitor lead and the hot so I think the windings are good. I don't see any obvious issues on the circuit board.

I have the same problem of reversal. Upon disassembly, I was surprised to find a very obviously blown transistor. Got too hot and exploded its case. If only could identify the part I could perhaps replace it. The transistor is probably a relay driver. There's no telling if other problems beyond the transistor are present.

I have the exact same problem. In fact, my SPL-1506X is sitting disassembled on the kitchen table as I write this. There is a PC Board inside the unit with a relay that directs the motor to run in forward or reverse. My relay is fused in the reverse position. I know this because the relay's casing is clear polycarbonate. If that relay can be replaced, the SPL-1506X will be fixed, I'm convinced. Unfortunately, the relay is made in China. So much for quality! I located the part no. on the web: Sanyou SME-2110DP a DPDT relay. If you can find it(which I can't), you're in luck. Myself, I'm going to trash the unit.

Have a Staples Model SPL-727MM paper shreader that won't work. Probably jammed, but unable to open it. Found some screw holes in where the tray pulls out, but regilar screwdriver won't fit, too long. Does...


Some home office shredders have the shredding mechanism "permanently" attached with only the bin (tray?) removable. The entire machine has to be inverted to gain access for cleaning. Periodic cleaning is necessary maintenance as shredders of this type are not self-cleaning.

Spl-1506x shredder only runs in reverse


Daniel:

Unplug the shredder... Take the top off and turn it upside down. Use a screwdriver to take the lower cowling off and look at the motor. If the mounting area where the motor sits looks melted at all, the machine is toast. If the motor mounting area looks good, look at the slot where the paper is inserted... there should be a sensor (that "sees" the paper when you insert it) at the paper slot. Check to see that the sensor isn't damaged.

The shredder runs perfectley in the reverse direction, but does not run at all in the shredding direction


I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

Staples SPL-1506X


Well, despite the manufacters warning label I choose to take the shredder apart and found that one of the plastic gears was broken. Hence the motor runs, but the blades do not turn. The thing I didn't understand, the there are metal gears and plasic gears...I can only imagine that the plastic gears at one point or another are going to give. I would suggest not to void the manufacters warrenty, take the shredder back, and get one that is built a little stronger. Hope that helps.

No power to SPL-1506X


I had the same problem-one day the shredder worked, the next day no power. We checked the fuse and it was ok. There is a safety switch that has to engage with a plastic tab on the bin. For some reason it was no longer engaging. We put a piece of cardboard into the slot and now it works fine.
