The feed sensor is right up by the paper slot usually on the back side of the slot as you are looking at it.

SOURCE: Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue

I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

SOURCE: full bin light is always on!

On most shredders the full bin sensor is actuated with a plate just under the cutter head. When the bin gets full the paper builds up and pushes the plate back.
Be sure to unplug main power before during any service.
Try wiggling the plate back and forth to clear out any backed up paper.

SOURCE: shredder says bin is full but its empty won't

What model is it? Most of the time some paper shreds are hanging down from the cutter asm and blocking the sensors. Unplug the unit and reach up underneith to remove the shreds.

SOURCE: SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

We have a Fellows Pwoershred 2200SC that keeps showing the full bin light even when it's empty. Tried cleaning the eye near the feed area with canned air as per recommendation by a shredder maintence...


There are also sensors under the shredder head to indicate when the bin is full. You either have a defective sensors or a dirty one (clean with air).

The "Bin Full" indicator light


There is a sensor in the bin area of the machine that is faulty. If you have cleaned the bin area completely and still have that problem then the sensor is bad and will have to be replaced. Look on the manufacturer website for the replacement part.

I have a shredder from Staples and need to know if the bin full indicator can be bypassed.


A shredder at our office had the same problem. Take out the bin & turn the shredder upside down. There is a sensor on the bottom that looks like two led lights. If it is covered with paper dust, the shredder will think the bin is full. It might work if you simply wipe it off.

The sensor can be hard to find if it is really dusty, so just wipe off the entire pottom really well.

Office max shredder, says bin full but its not, only half full


I had the same problem. I found that the sensor on the shredder is light sensitive. The viewing window in the bin was letting too much light in and was triggering the bin full light to turn on. I covered the window with a piece of paper and then restarted the shredder.It worked fine after that.

Try cleaning the bin full sensors. located on both sides of your machine, inside the bin,under the cutter head. If that does not solve problem, you need to replace bin full sensors.
