SOURCE: Shreds halfway, then stops. Fellowes SB-95C

on the underside of the shredder, at the top of the space where the cuttings box is, there are 2 sensors, 1 at either end of the shredder blades. it sounds like these sensors could be either dirty, or defective. try to clean these with a cotton bud or similar. it may need new sensors, bu it is worth a try!

SOURCE: It stopped working after a big shred. I suspect an overheat. How do I reset it?

it's overheated, after you turn on the shredder, is it working?
if not, that means your shredder's motor is death.
need to buy a new shredder.

Only if you are mechanically handy and know how to take a part. Most of these shredder's sensors are PLASTIC and break EASILY. I should know, I had to take apart my wife's shredder.

I had to bypass the sensor and rewire it. It can be done if you know what you are doing. If not, don't try it

In your case I would unscrew the top assembly. Than I would use a can of canned air to clean out the sensor eye. Than I would use tweezers to pull out all specks of paper I could find.

Your best bet is to try to return it for a replacement.

First, try switching to reverse, alot of times, stuck paper will come back out in reverse. Then unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and with a small flathead screwdriver, knife, or tweezers, dig out pieces of paper. It takes alot of effort but by digging small pieces out, a little at a time, you can get most of the paper free.

How do I oil the shredder


Found this that should help:
Oiling Instructions for Fellowes Shredders
Why and How Often: Regular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders is a necessary maintenance step to help keep your shredder functioning properly and prolong its life. Several factors determine how often you should oil your shredder-such as the type of paper being shred, the amount of paper being shred, and whether you shred only occasionally or continuously for long periods of time without stopping.
  • As a general rule, it is a good practice to oil your shredder each time you empty the wastebasket, or once a month.
  • Micro-cut shredders need to be oiled more frequently-ideally after every 15 minutes of use.
How To: Press and hold down the reverse button on your shredder. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps across the cutters while gently squeezing the oil bottle. Continue to run the shredder in
reverse for another 10-15 seconds.
What to use: It is recommended that you use Fellowes Oil to oil your shredder. You may also use other oil designated for shredder use.
Do not use any oil or lubricant that is dispensed from an aerosol container.
Do not use any petroleum-based oils or lubricants. Use of such oils or lubricants will void the warranty on your shredder and could cause serious injury, as they are fire hazards when used with electronic devices.

It turns on but the blade part won't turn to shred, just whirrs


I have a TechSolutions 4500. The light comes on but the blades won't turn. I've checked underneath and it is clear of any jammed paper and there are no broken washers, etc. that might jam it and there are none. Ive checked the sensor and it seems to be working. Reverse doesn't work either. It worked the day before but not today. Could it be that it over-heated? I've tried taking out the screws on top but I think there must be a clamp that keeps the lid on as it won't release the top even after taking out all 6 screws. I never shred more than 5 sheets and this is a 7-sheet capacity so I'm thinking it was over heated.

Overly loud shredding; stops prematurely


I have taken many shredders apart and found them so clogged up with shreds of paper and too much oil will turn into paper mud.Be bold and take the top off and clean it out. Unplug the power source and when removing the top , be careful because their will be a short cable connecting the top to the circuit board. Easy to damage.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,
