    there was a jam we were able to remove the wad of paper causing the jam lights light motor ok but the gears are not moving

    Per postings under "Motor runs both forward and reverse, but...", no replacement parts are available for the Fellowes P600C-2 shredder. The common problem noted is a broken drive-gear tooth, which is exactly what I found inside mine.

My Royal VF1000mx crosscut paper shredded would not feed. I removed all jammed paper I could see. The green "auto" feed light would go on, but no grinding or turning of gears would occur. I put some shredder oil in the paper feed slot. Now the "auto" green light goes on and the gears are turning, but they are not pulling in any paper, credit card, or CD. The auto reverse light goes on for a second or two when I put the switch to reverse, but the paper, card, or CD is not pushed out either.

Also, I cannot locate my manual. Is there some way I can download another one?

Free motion, but can't find the cover fotr the feed dogd

Set the stitch length to 0, stitch selector to straight stitch. Find a thin piece of plastic or cardboard and punch a smooth hole in it for the needle to go through. Tape the plastic over the feed dogs with the hole aligned under the needle, and you should be good to go.
The fake credit cards that show up in junk mail are perfect for this.

Papers come out cut but not all the way through

You are exceeding the capacity of the shredder. Regardless of the capacity claimed, most of the common office shredders can handle only a few sheets of paper at a time. As for credit cards, they will destroy your shredder quickly because they are simply too tough to handle.

Modle AS662C year old, moderatly used. I just tried to use it and it will not feed the paper. It sounds like it is working but nothing is happening! Last thing shredded was one credit card. What could be...

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder. My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!

if you have reverse, run reverse.
if you don't have reverse, you will have to disassemble the drive shaft/cutters and clear manually

Shredder seized up, i think.

I found a site that sells these things and looked at the specs for a newer one. That's where I saw that you're supposed to oil them once in a while. Never had. Oiled it. Worked great, instantly! Figured it probably needed more oil. Oiled it really really well. Shorted it out. Now it's junk.

might be faulty alignment of teeth, a factory defect!

Can't get shredder to work

Please ... unplug your shredder before doing this.

It sounds like you were on the right track picking paper out of the gears. The problem is that the paper can get really jammed up in there, especially when you use the reverse.

I found that I needed to use a combination of a small screwdriver with at least a 3 inch long blade to push the jammed paper through. The I use needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper through the other side.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if it does.

Shredder won't shred any more.

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.
