Your only choice is to take it apart and see where it has been dislodged from its proper position.

SOURCE: Fellowes PS-70 Shredder jam

I used needle-nose pliers and regular pliers to pull out all of the jammed paper -- it took an hour but I finally got it. I never did find a release mechanism even after I took the top apart. Thanks anyway!

SOURCE: Shreder will only go backwards

I have a Fellows OS-11Cs shredder that suddenly quit operating. It would run in reverse and when auto mode was selected an audible clicking noise was emitting from a relay on the pc board. My initial thought was that I had overheated the unit since the shredder had been operating perfectly up to the point where it stopped working but that didn't seem to be the case after the unit was allowed to cool down.I cleaned all visible paper shreds from the cutters(with the shredder unplugged)that were visible and then sprayed the cutters with a very light lubricant (3 in 1 oil) I then operated the shredder in the reverse mode for a few moments and since then the shredder has operated flawlessly.I hope this is of some assistance to others with a similar problem.

SOURCE: Unjamed, but jammed light remains on and won't shred

Most likely the PC board has gone bad. It will cost over 100.00 from fellowes.

I have paper stuck in the top of my shredder, How do I remove It?


This happens more tomes than I can count with my mom. You cant feed an feed it an not stop an clean out the shreads that build up in the teeth. You will need to remove the top or how ever you can get it apart. Get what ever tool you can find an begin clearing all the paper from the teeth or rollers. You will notice a switch on the side that gets jammed at times an stops the unit. Also if it got to hot you can reverse it an the paper will back out. They quit from heat, to thick or many sheets at once, an paper jams. I used a pencil an a paper clip once. Use what ever it takes.

Paper shredder doesn't move due to too much adhesive paper - how to fix it


Before trying anything I suggest, make sure your shredder isn't plugged in.
You will need to remove the adhesive from the rollers. You will need to use a glue solvent on the shredder rollers,something like Goo Be Gone. Personally, I still use Ronsonol Lighter Fluid In the image below I've outlined the supplies you'll need to, hopefully, clear your jam.



25346531-f3timxio4jyou4u0bydnlgfi-2-0.jpg Without disassembling your shredder, the best way to clear your jam is to use Rosonol Lighter Fluid (3), tweezers (4), and dental picks (5).
  1. Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. Separate the shredder from its shredded paper collection tub.
  2. Turn the shredder head upside down so that the paper output is facing up.
  3. Pour Rosonol lighter fluid on both sides of the rollers near where they come together.
  4. Use dental picks and tweezers to dislodge stuck paper pieces
  5. Turn Shredder head over and repeat steps 3 and 4
  6. Move power switch to the "Off" position
  7. Plug power cable back in
  8. Move power switch to "Rev" (reverse) position, if still stuck move power switch to the "Fwd" position, repeat twice
  9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 until the rollers move freely
Once the rollers are moving smoothly you need to oil the rollers.

How do I clear the paper clog from the rollers?


First try to run it backwards. Sometimes that will clear a clog. If not UNPLUG IT, and painstakingly pick out any paper lumps with tweezers, slowly. GOOD LUCK! I have spent a few hours in front of the TV just picking out paper bits. In the future, be sure not to put in more than two or three pieces of paper at a time, NO STAPLES, and use shredder oil ever fifty or so sheets you put through!!!

Shredder keeps running on auto


Unplug it and check to see if theree is any paper caught in the Start switch. Turn it Off, plug it back in and start in the Reverse mode. Then turn it Off and set the swich for On - shread.

If that doesn't work unplug it and find the start switch trip wire, Toggle it a few times with something thin - don't push too hard. You can also spray the switch the canned air used to clean keyboards. Plug it back n, start it in reverse then move it to shread.

You probably need to get some shredder oil and lubricate the cutter heads. see: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fellowes-Powershred-Shredder-Lubricant-Oil/8207323

Ht500 shredder


check the cutter slot, there should have a micro switch with a level, that detect the paper when the paper is in the slot.
the micro switch may be dirty or some thing is preventing it from starting.
