On most shredders the full bin sensor is actuated with a plate just under the cutter head. When the bin gets full the paper builds up and pushes the plate back.
Be sure to unplug main power before during any service.
Try wiggling the plate back and forth to clear out any backed up paper.

1. bin full when bin is empty means that the bin control sensor is dirty or need to be replaced. But since your having problems with water over flowing also i would bet that your machine needs a good cleaning. is you water full light on or off? if off and water sump try is full then you need to pull water sensor out and clean or replace it. if water sensor light is on then you need to replace water inlet valve.

The "bin full" indicator is always on.

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,
