Question about Fellowes Manufacturing Powershred C-220 Shredder
Whenever I try to shred anything on my Fellowes Powershred C220 the red light comes on saying the bin is full when it's not. Sometimes I will be in the middle of shredding something and it will stop and the red light meaning the "bin is full" will come on and I have to continuously shut off and on the machine in order to continue shredding.
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.
