My fellowes ps-70 shredder has a light on and it's not working


If the shredder is the kind that turns on when you insert paper, it may have an optical sensor that is dirty or blocked. Try blowing off the sensor with some canned air. The sensor is usually located in the center of the paper path slot. Also check that the bin is completely closed. Sometimes a tab on the door is bent or broken so that the shredder thinks the door is open. The tab activates a switch which tells the shredder that the door is safely closed. Fellowes has a lot of good tips on their website.

OUR FELLOWES CROSS CUT SHREDDER WILL KEEP ON RUNNING AFTER THE PAPER HAS BEEN SHREDDED. ARE THERE SENSORS THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE COVERED IN PAPER DUST?


If you look into the slot you feed the paper into, you should see a two little bumps that are facing each other in the center of the slot. These are the sensors that tell the unit to turn on/off. You can try cleaning them with a paper towel or long q-tip. If this does not fix it, then the sensors will have to be replaced. Most Fellowes machines have a 3-year warranty, you can call Fellowes at 1-800-955-0959 to see if yours is under warranty.

SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING


look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

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,

Fellows Powershred c-120 c indicator lights


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.

Random Running


I had the same problem with a DM12C  It would start running by itself at random times. Eventually it ran continuously. Fellowes knows about this problem and if you talk to their customer care people nicely (not email) they will take care of you even if out of warranty.
