Take out the paper bin. Look for and remove any screws holding the top part of the shredder to the base. Take the top off, turn it upside-down and you might be able to remove the jam. To take the top apart, remove all of the screws that are under or near the edge. Look out, it gets very messy when you take it apart!
Fellowes sells replacement gears for some of their shredders.

Plastic stuck in my Fellowes shredder blades!


Sorry, but no. There isn't really a way, unless you are very technically minded, to take the teeth apart and clean them. You might try, using a paperclip, I find that I have to do that on occasion to clear out the pieces that get caught in between the teeth.
or maybe, just a thought,?... You can use a product called goof off, it does come in a aerosol can as well, in addition to small bottles of the product in liquid form. Good luck.

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?


That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

Paper jam


Does it sound like the motor is spinning? or does it sound like the motor is bound up? I ask because if it sounds like the motor is spinning, then chances are good you stripped a plastic gear somewhere in the drive system that feeds the steel shredder. I just pulled apart one of these and saw that the motor has a steel gear on it. that steel motor gear meets with a plastic gear, and then the plastic gear meets with steel gears attached to, and which spin the shredder. So if you ever bind the shredder with too much paper, the steel motor gear will grind the teeth right off the plastic gear and it won't spin anymore. If your motor sounds like it's bound, then the good news is that the gears aren't stripped. You'll have to take the shredder apart so you can remove the paper causing the problem. Of course unplug it first before opening it up. They are not overly complex but just remember where the screws goes so you put them back in the right holes.

Won't shut off


You have an optic sensor that is blocked or shorted. If you take it apart you should be able to identify the problem. It is up by where the paper feeds in.

Doesn't work in auto position but works in reverse


Most likely your optic sensor has something in front of it. Clean out the unit really well. It does take time, about 3 different screwdrivers, lon pliers and tweezers and a vacuum or compressed air. After that, learning more new words and swearing to god you will never let this happen again until the third time.

How do I remove the shredder head case of an Aurora AS890C? I have removed the 6 screws (it's unplugged), but it still won't come apart. It quit working, so I don't know if it's jammed or...


There are 7 screws. You missed the one hidden under the small silver label.
Once you take it apart, don't waste your time calling Aurora as you voided your warranty and ability to get help from them. That happened to me.

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.

My Fellowes p600c-2 shredder will only run in reverse. I've blown compressed air on the switch and pushed on it with a toothpick but neither method worked. I removed 6 screws and the cover of the on/off...


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.

Will not shred will go in Rev


I just fixed a similar issue. My AS702MX shredder fell off my desk while I was emptying the basket. When I tried to use it after that it only ran in reverse, not in auto/forward (it was not jammed). This meant that the motor was still working. Since this shredder is so old, no longer under warranty, and not working anyway, I decided to open it up. I unscrewed the 5 screws on the bottom (that's all), then the plastic covering opened up. While looking at the shredder from the top (without the plastic cover) you will see a small black plastic trigger mechanism in the middle (this is what the paper hits to start the shred) this piece will push a copper filament onto the motor to complete the "auto" circuit. Well the fall had caused the plastic trigger to dislodge on one side... I popped it back into place and closed it up, and its working fine now. It was really simple to fix.

Plastic drive gear from motor broken


I have a left over set of these plastic gears that I can send to you. The motor bracket on mine snapped. I took it apart to check. It looks unrepairable.
