Can you hear any humming? Blades or motor may be jammed. Can you get the top off? Most likely there is paper jammed in the cutter asm. You may have to manually turn the motor in reverse to pull the paper out.

Cd stuck in the shredder


did you try reversing it?
If it wn't you will have to unplug it and break off as much of the dcrom near the rollers and try run revese back and forth and see if it will clear that way; if not then the shredder has to come apart.

Fellows PS-70 shredder basket ajar light is on


Here is some general advice. Shredders have an interlock to be sure they don't run while the basket is not in place. They don't want you holding the head unit and it starts running and shreds your fingers. So you need to look for the switch that tells the head unit that it is in place over the basket. I'm guessing here but it might be something like a little plastic protrusion that pushes into the head unit to activate a swith. It is possible that the little plastic piece is broken and is not activating the head unit. That would explain why the display thinks that the basket is ajar or misaligned. BE CAREFUL if you tinker with the interlock and be sure it is unplugged!! That is an ORDER!

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.

Fellowes PS-70 Shredder jam


I used needle-nose pliers and regular pliers to pull out all of the jammed paper -- it took an hour but I finally got it. I never did find a release mechanism even after I took the top apart. Thanks anyway!

PS-70 Shredder problem


Make sure that the shredder is locked down in its case by pushing down on all 4 corners.
Since the basket slides forward to empty it, I would think the safety switch is located in the front but not positive since I don't have a unit right in front of me.
Check to see if you see a slot in the top part of the shredder unit. Usually the basket has a piece of plastic that will line up with the slot when the basket is in place (Safety switch) so that the top part of the shredder knows that the basket is in place.

Look around with a flashlight, If you are going to feel around with your hand, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG the shredder just to be safe.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

PS-70-2 not working


Make sure the pull-out wastebasket is all the way in. Also, make sure the basket is less than half full. A paper jam could also cause this symptom.
