I just had the same problem. I called the 800 # they asked for proof of purchase to replace if 1 year old. I did not have it so...... I took it apart ------ unpluged ! Only to find all gears are fine, service dept. said gears cause this problem, not so with mine. Remove top by pulling of base remove 6 screws on under side, played with the switch inside a bit and, it now works, do not know how long but for know it does. My opinion is the relay gets dirty, and you cannot clean it without talking whole thing apart.

Shredder will go on reverse but not forward


I have one like the one pictured. UNPLUG THE UNIT, USE GLOVES THE WHEELS ARE SHARP. Take another look at the underside see if the old paper is compacted if so, use an ice pick to pry the paper loose but be careful. Another item you will see 7 holes those are screws. Use a phillips and remove the screws to expose the working parts. Look for paper jams etc. move the wheels by hand, add a little WE40 or lite oil. Hope this helps.

Fellowes P35C works in reverse but not forwards


In forward operation, a detector senses the presence of material in the feeder and turns it on. Reverse operation is selected by switch position; no sensor is involved. I would bet that if you remove power and turn the shredder upside down you will find bits of shredded paper clogging your shredder, particularly in the center area where the detector is located. After thorough removal of debris, you should be back to normal operation

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred


Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

My Fellowes p600c-2 shredder will only run in reverse. I've blown compressed air on the switch and pushed on it with a toothpick but neither method worked. I removed 6 screws and the cover of the on/off...


Never mind providing help, I fixed it myself. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

That's correct. There is a sensor that detects when the top is connected to the base.

Actually this is more than likely a broken gear. Unfortunately we no longer have any replacement parts for this machine.
