SOURCE: Fellowes Shredder keeps running

You should be able to flip up the cd cover and visibly see the sensors in the center of the paper entry(look like little LED lightbulbs) Clean with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alchohol. This should solve your problem. If it doesn't you probally have a burned out sensor. call 1-800-945-4545 to check with customer service.

SOURCE: How to disassemble Fellowes P70CM Shredder

Agreed, there is a seventh screw under the label, as wstrooper suggests. Press along the label and you'll find the tell-tale indentation!
Having taken it apart (a further 4 screws to remove the nylon housing from the base, and another seven to remove the nylon covering for the gears), it has revealas a stripped gear (the one nearest the motor), caused by too many sheets of paper being fed in.
This problem seems to repeat amongst several P70CM owners. Shame the motor doesn't have a cut-out if it hits too great a resistance, rather than strip the gear of its teeth.

Need the sb-95c plastic spur gear for the Fellowes Powershred. Where Can I get one?

Go to support on the Fellowes website. Enter your model number and you should be able to locate a parts finder. The shredders are rather inexpensive and the repair parts may not be available.

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred

Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here:

For user susan10 if you have a Fellowes machine I suggest you call customer service at 1-800-945-4545

For user stevehello check under stickers or any plugs for any hidden screws some shredders are also put together with tabs that need to be pried apart but check for hidden screws first.
