Check the sensors on top and bottom of cutters. Clean with cotton swabs and compressed air. If this does not help, bad sensors or main board.

RED Light is on (left of the green light)


Reverse shredder and clean out as much paper shred as possible. Use some lube oil. Hairclipper oil and canola vegetable oil are good choices.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

Cleaning ladies were here yesterday. Evidently they did something because today when I turned it on both the red and green lights are lit and the expected humming sound is absent.


Check for the trigger wire. On Fellowes it is usually a thin wire in the middle of the unit that triggers the shredding mechanism. Also check to be sure the shredded recepticle is pushed in fully.

The shredder has stopped working for either CDs or paper. The green light comes on when the switch is set "auto", but it won't shred


Is it Jammed.??? does the motor at least run.????
If the motor runs but the cutting blades dont turn then youv'e lost a gear inside....if the motor dosn't turn at all...then youv'e prbably lost the PCB inside...also make sure youv'e cleaned the Glass eyes in the middle of the paper oening....for parts give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799.

My 2001 honda prelude has a red maintenance required light on. Has approx 80K miles. Any ideas?


The red maintenance light on the 5th generation preludes is simply an oil light. Press your key in the middle of the dash and it will turn green. Nothing to worry about. Internal problems will come up with the check engine light.

Need a sensor switch for fellows powershred 220. Won't sense paper.


The top sensors may be bad or even the main board that they are connected to is bad. Try cleaning them with a lightly moistened swab or compressed air. Fellowes will sell you the parts.

Shredder Beeping


The motor would always turn the cutters.
You likely have a broken chain or a loose gear on a shaft. If you hear the motor running and the cutters are not spinning something in the drive is broken. Likely the chain.
hope this helps.

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,
razors
