Question about Office Shredders
I have a similar problem. I took the shredder head and gear box apart and found two stripped gears. True, the gears are plastic unfortunately (which is why they stripped.)
The gears are simple to get at and to replace. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of gears for this unit (there are 3)?
If so, could you, please, email me w/ that information? (email@example.com).
I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

Aloha- Need to know a couple of things before I can suggest a solution. 1st, does the drive motor run? and 2nd, are there any grinding noises coming from the unit? The best part is that Fellowes has a 5 year warranty on the cutting block (That's the part that actually does the shredding.) If there is a grinding noise, then most likely there is a stripped gear in the drive mechanism. (Not cover in the 5 year warranty)They use plastic gears and they break fairly easily.Relatively easy to replace but not available at your local hardware store. If the unit is less than a year old, take it back to the place you bought it and they should fix it free of charge, but if it's over a year old, you'll have to pay for the repair. Hope that this helped. Let me know, OK? Good luck Bill Monroe
