Question about Fellowes Manufacturing 120C (Confetti-Cut) Shredder

Open Question

I bought a used fellowes shredder 120c-2 confetti cutter. I notice that random blades don't rotate causing backups. I am interested in how the shaft is designed to move the blades and if it can be fixed.

Looking for a basket for a fellows 65c


You can only buy new one or block a microswitch inside. Basket from Fellowes PS-67Cs can be used too. If you use this shredder privately just block the microswitch.

My fellowes p 48c is jammed


It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and
place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper
wrapped around the blades - can take a while.
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

Our C220c shredder does not shred, motor turns and blades turn but i think the blades are blunt. Can you get new ones or have the old blades sharpened?


There are 2 shafts that have the cutting blades on them and they both should turn. I have replaced many gears on this model and suspect that a gear is broken. Fellowes does not have many parts this model anymore. I would call a local shredder repair service or you can call Fellowes at 800-955-0959.

Why is the fellowes blade still rotating even when there is no paper?


It is possible that a small shred of paper is lodged at the sensor underneath the cutting blade.
    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers or use canned air and blow the edges of the blades.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse.
    • 3 Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

Hi Charlene,

Replacing the blades is not the problem, trying to find them is.

Sorry, but you need to buy a new shredder.

The paper will not go through my shredder


Can you actually see the cutter blades rotating? I have seen gears broken and you can hear the motor running but no blade movement. Remove the screws lift the top off carefully because their is a short ribbon cable connected to the main board and can easily be damaged. Of course unplug from power outlet first.
Gears and motor can be puurchased.

Motor on / Blades don't move.


Hello,
Sounds like the internal gears or drive shafts are either broken, or out of alignment. Not exactly something that can be easily fixed usually. Hopefully, it's still under warranty?

Fellowes P-45C shredder


Janet,

Shredders need oil. You must oil the cutters every 500 or so pages or jams like this one will cause the blades to seize. If you haven't been oiling it at least monthly when not using it, it will also jam in the manner you describe. Care and feeding of a shredder is very important. Also, its considered a non-warranty repair if the oiling is not being done. However, call Fellowes directly to see what you can work out.
