Question about Fellowes Manufacturing Powershred SB-97CS Shredder

SB-97Cs Full red light stays on

We have a SB-97Cs. The red light stays and will only shredd by pushing reverse and then forward and it will only shredd 1/4 of page before red light comes on again. I have checked the "eyes" that they are clean. what could be wrong? I suspect the "eyes" are shot? How do we fix it? The eyes are based on a diode send and receive function like a tv remote. Can we buy near Infarred, diode send receive?

You can order from Fellowes or a dealer like myself. Maybe the unit is all jammed up with shreds in the housing. Try taking the top off and cleaning it throughly. Be careful with the short ribbon cabl.

Sounds like the motor cables are in reverse at the controller. Check that the red is in the positive and the black wire is in the negative on the controller.

My son put a 25 page document in this shredder and bound her up better than any shredder jam I've EVER seen. What's the best way to clear this mess when the shredder can't overpower the jam? I'll pull...


There are various ways to clear the mess if you have patience and the time to work the jam. 1. Unplug the shredder and use a flat-head screw driver to dig as much out as you can, then plug it back in and flip the switch from forward to reverse a few times and then keep repeating the process until jam is cleared. 2. Use tweezers to remove paper from critical connection teeth and the try it again.

I have the same problem with a stripped gear, to remove the top i found it best to place the shredder on its back, then with a pozi screw driver there are 5 screws securing the top in place, these are inside the shredder above the paper bin, 1 in each corner and 1 in the centre.

Hope this helps.

The bin is full light remains on even though it's empty. How to I get it to work correctly?


I called the toll free number for Fellowes Help Line, 800.955.0959, and spoke to John who was most familiar with the SB-15c. I indicated that the "bin full" LED was bad (actually the transmit bulb). After John ascertained that I had indeed cleaned the bulbs, he made available a replacement part, MasterCard or VISA required. Replacement of these bulbs is not for everyone. A level of technical ability and some tools will be required.

I have never had this level of technical support available on the first call. Kudos for Fellowes.
