Question about Fellowes PS70-2CD Shredder
The middle light on the left turns on and the shredder does not want to work.
If the shredder is the kind that turns on when you insert paper, it may have an optical sensor that is dirty or blocked. Try blowing off the sensor with some canned air. The sensor is usually located in the center of the paper path slot. Also check that the bin is completely closed. Sometimes a tab on the door is bent or broken so that the shredder thinks the door is open. The tab activates a switch which tells the shredder that the door is safely closed. Fellowes has a lot of good tips on their website.

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!

there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.
