Question about Fellowes 3011001 Shredder
Machine is not shuting itself off when shredding job is completed. Actually we always have to shut the machine off ourselves. No longer shuting itself off. I have cleaned two glass small 'eyes' inside machine at the top. This has not helped.
SOURCE: Won't shut off after shredding.
I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2. Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)

It's just the (On and Off) switch not working properly (loose contact). Try to disassemble it and take a look if it's in the center location to make contact with On or Off positions.

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I will see if our janitor can fix it Bev"
This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

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.
