Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred

The motor in my Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder only works in reverse and the little red light shows for a micro-second after the button is held down although the motor keeps going all the time the reverse button is pressed. When the button is in the forward position the green light stays on but the motor doesn't respond at all. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for your help, razors. Located the basket sensor and that's doing its job but I can't see a 'basket-full' sensor.

There are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.

hth,

Will not shred, but will go in reverse


Sorry don't mean to point out something obvious, but are you being shown any indication lights that the waste basket is not seated correctly in the bin or the head? If not, then you may want to try and check these connections anyway. Lights can burn out.
