SOURCE: Fellowes Shredder keeps running

You should be able to flip up the cd cover and visibly see the sensors in the center of the paper entry(look like little LED lightbulbs) Clean with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alchohol. This should solve your problem. If it doesn't you probally have a burned out sensor. call 1-800-945-4545 to check with customer service.

SOURCE: Shredder won't shut off after paper goes thru

Have the DS-12C / 32080 also. After a moderate amount of shredding it will just keep running. Sometimes it will be in the auto position and not running (waiting for paper to be inserted), and then for no apparent reason it will just start running (like in the middle of the night) no doubt this is due to dust collecting. Q-tip with alcohol works best for me over compress air. Actually the Q-tip is perfect size to thoroughly clean the sensor (which I believe is in the middle of the unit). But since I don't want to freak out at 3AM in the morning I generally leave mine off.

SOURCE: 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!

If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.

Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

CAN THE BLADES ON A FELLOWES 99Ci SHREDDER BE SHARPENED?


I do not believe so. Never heard of sharpening one. The shredding blade is pretty complicated. The manufacturer has a good support web page I suggest contacting them. Keep it clean and oiled and it should last a long time. And do not shred stuff listed on the cannot shred list.

How do I fix my blades on my shredder?


Try running a layer of aluminum foil between two sheets of paper. See if it shredds, If it does, do it a couple of times, then use shredder oil. It might help to both sharpen the blades, and to keep them sharp longer. It works on cutting blades for scrapbooking cutters and scissors...

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Our C220c shredder does not shred, motor turns and blades turn but i think the blades are blunt. Can you get new ones or have the old blades sharpened?


There are 2 shafts that have the cutting blades on them and they both should turn. I have replaced many gears on this model and suspect that a gear is broken. Fellowes does not have many parts this model anymore. I would call a local shredder repair service or you can call Fellowes at 800-955-0959.

Ativa CX10B shredder starts but as soon as the paper goes in a short distance, it quits! It will reverse but only make it through a sheet by turning to off position and wait 3 seconds and then back on. ...


Have you run oiled paper through the shredder? If not you need to do so. Office depot will sell you the oil and tell you how to use it.
You can also hand feed a sheet of paper until it trips the paper sensors. Don't let the paper get into the cutters and let the machine run until it clears itself.
If the shredder is old (over a year old) your motor may have bad bearings. Is it noisier then usual. If so the bearings are shot.
If they are shot and you are out of warranty you are out of business. This is chinese junk and so far I have been unable to find parts.
Hope this helps.

My royal ag10x cross cut shredder is losing steam - labors thru 4 pages at a time and i've never done any maintence in 8 years. is there a way to sharpen the blades?


May not be the blades that need sharpening.....try putting some lightweight shredder oil on a sheet of paper then shred the sheet of paper....do this 2 or three times and see if it helps. It won't hurt to put a good bit of oil on the paper.
