Question about Fellowes Powershred SB-99Ci Heavy-Duty Cross-Cut Shredder, 17 Sheet Capacity
Just stopped working, it is not jammed. I have power going to the door shut off as this is the only light that comes on, and goes off when door is engaged in closed position. Seems to have lost power somewhere as all other control lights remain out. Are any of the switch contacts more problematic to failure. I have an autistic son who loves to shred and press all the buttons.

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.

If your shredder has a feature where it won't run with the door open/shredder off the bin, you probably need to make sure that the safety is engaging properly. If the motor seems to sound very labored when it runs, unplug it, and check the blades to make sure there's not a lot of extra stuck in them. You may need to clean them and lubricate it with special shredder oil ONLY.
