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.

Where can I obtain a repair manual for a Staples SPL 1506X Shredder


You can't. You take it apart yourself, you find the cogs inside are plastic and shattered and you can't get replacements, so you have to buy a new one.

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.

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.
