The sensor or button that tells it it's full, probably has paper dust or something jamming it. Clean it up without liquid and it will probably work.

Machine says it's FULL, and won't shred, but it isn't/


there is a sensor that detects when the basket is full, if you remove the basket, look up for the sensor that would point down into the basket. it is probably dirty, clean off sensor.

hope this helps

We have a CR220 fellowes shredder. It will shred 1/2 of a peice of paper, then the basket full light comes on even tho the basket is empty.


you can try cleaning the "bin- full" sensors. they are located on the inside of cabinet, on the bottom of the shredder "head". one will be to the left side of basket and one to the right. they kind of look like little glass eyes mounted inside of black rubber casings. paper dust on these will do this sometimes. if that doesn't do it then it sounds like your "bin-full" sensors are bad. a known problem with these shredders. fellowes has come out with modified sensors. if it was purchased within 2 years, it should still be under warranty.

Our Aurora AS1712X paper shredder is jammed in a couple of places with paper so badly that we cannot free the jam and the tooth wheels cannot turn freely. Is there an easy way to clear the jam?


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

I have the Aurora shredder, model number AS501X-MS. What maintenance is required. Should I oil/lubricate it?


Clean it (unplugged) with a vacuum periodically. Dump the can regularly - dont wait for the light to tell you it is full. Get some shredder oil at the big box store and follow the directions on the back

Basket full light on


without seeing the product, there are 2 (two) things to check.
First, unplug the shredder and go underneath where the bin full flap is. Sometimes paper debris gets stuck between the flap and switch. Check to ensure the switch is not out of adjustment. you'll have to remove the top cover to perform this. Otherwise, your PC Board is defective.

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,
