your bin full sensors are dirty or broken to clean access bottom side of shredder head and look for a set of screws on each end of the paper throat. There you will see two little bulbs (bin full sensors) these have more than likely gathered paper dust and need to be cleaned with a Q-tip dipped in a little Isopryl Alchohol. This should solve your problem. If you have any questions just call us at 1-800-945-4545. A Customer Service Representative will assist you.

SOURCE: Regarding powershred 480

I have a similar problem with the bin full light and understand I have to clean the sensors. The sensor you could be having trouble with is probably up in the feed slot area. Have a look at it with a flashlight and see if there is paper dust covering the sensor. I clean mine with a toothpick.
I haven't had much luck in finding an official description of where the sensors lurk, just trial and error.
Hope this amateur suggestion helps.

SOURCE: PowerShred C-220 will not shred automatically

OK lets try.
You likely have a photo sensor that detects the paper and it is dirty.
It is likely covered with paper dust (hopefully only on the outside)
Locate the sensor and wipe it off or just wipe the entire throat area.
WITH MACHINE OFF
Hope this helps

You wil need to Have the shredding head rebuilt or replaced. and or a new machine. A new head is very expensive. Here is the number for fellows 800-955-0959. Check on parts if they are still available. Hope this helps your friendly service tech (colorado).

Shredder continues to run after page is shredded, must be manually switched off.


there is a sensor that detects paper in front of it to turn on the shredder mech. it is probably covered with paper dust so the machine constantly thinks there is paper being shredded. give it a clean with a qtip moistened with isopropyl alcohol - make sure the shredder is unplugged first.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,

Only one-half (righ side) of the shredder works, left side does not shred


Fellowes has a five year warranty on the cutting block of their shredders. (The cutting block is that part of the machine that actually does the shredding of the paper) Take it back to the store where you bought it ans they should either replace the cutting block or exchange the entire machine, but it will take about a week or more, depending on where you are located. At least it shouldn't cost you anything.
