Fellowes P600C-2 Motor runs in reverse, but not forward

The motor/gears seem to be working fine, there are no jams in this shredder.

I cannot get it to accept a piece of paper to be shredded.

Help!

    my motor also runs fine, until I put paper in. it then starts turning for a second and then stops, but the motor keeps going. I've alternated to reverse and the same thing happens.

Take it apart and clean the switch with compressed air.

Be careful when you put it back together that you don't allow the wires to touch the fan.

You also have to make certain that the small plastic teeth that seperate when you feed paper are aligned properly.

Good Luck

We have a p600c-2 shredder and it will go in reverse, but it wont work in forwards. we have taken it apart, and we think the problem is the little switch inside. please help?


I had the same problem with my shredder. I removed 6 screws and the cover of the on/off switch. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism so it operated freely and reassembled the shredder. Hopefully this will work for you also.

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred


Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Never mind providing help, I fixed it myself. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Shredder motor seems jammed


must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.

Motor runs both forward and reverse, but cutters don't turn


How about a hidden 7th screw? If you look at the sticker on the underside where the bar code is you may see a dimple like there is a hollow space under it. If you can't see it, rub your finger over it to find the hole. Just stick your phillips screw driver through the sticker to get access to this last screw. As for the motor working both directions but the cutter doesn't turn it is most likely a broken nylon cog on the drive gears within the white plastic housing at the end of the shredder. There are 3 or 4 gears - all nylon (plastic), my unit had one tooth completely broken off and the one next to it was worn. I am looking into finding parts but I'm not having any luck so far with local service centres. I have a call into the fellowes main 1-800 number to see if they can help. On reviews I have seen this is a common problem. One reviewer was told they use nylon to reduce noise, but of course it isn't going to last long, especially if you ever jam. Nice metal cutters but the weak link is the drive gears that you can't see.
