Without seeing the product, there are 2 (two) things to check.
First, unplug the shredder and go underneath where the bin full flap is. Sometimes paper debris gets stuck between the flap and switch. Check to ensure the switch is not out of adjustment. you'll have to remove the top cover to perform this. Otherwise, your PC Board is defective.

Machine says it's FULL, and won't shred, but it isn't/


there is a sensor that detects when the basket is full, if you remove the basket, look up for the sensor that would point down into the basket. it is probably dirty, clean off sensor.

hope this helps

We have a CR220 fellowes shredder. It will shred 1/2 of a peice of paper, then the basket full light comes on even tho the basket is empty.


you can try cleaning the "bin- full" sensors. they are located on the inside of cabinet, on the bottom of the shredder "head". one will be to the left side of basket and one to the right. they kind of look like little glass eyes mounted inside of black rubber casings. paper dust on these will do this sometimes. if that doesn't do it then it sounds like your "bin-full" sensors are bad. a known problem with these shredders. fellowes has come out with modified sensors. if it was purchased within 2 years, it should still be under warranty.

Don't know how to open the basket


If the basket does not slide easily out of the shredder cabinet it maybe "jammed full" of shredded paper which is preventing the basket from sliding out. There is a clear concave "handle" on the front of the basket which users should reference to determine the fullness of the basket. I pulled out and pressed upward on the "handle" it easily popped in towards the basket. From there it was possible to remove enough of the shredded paper to allow the basket to slide out. WARNING: UNPLUG THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE PUPPY FROM THE ROOM.

The empty basket light stays on all the time


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.

'Full light' blinks on and then off when you replace shred basket. Aurora AS1712x shredder. It's not full, won't work at all.


The sensor or button that tells it it's full, probably has paper dust or something jamming it. Clean it up without liquid and it will probably work.
