SOURCE: Fellowes W11C shredder is brand

Hello,
Did the shredder work at all? These shredders are only rated to run for 5 minutes at a time, then it needs to cool (this could take a 1/2 hour).
Troubleshooting tips:
• Make sure shredder is plugged in and switch is in automatic [I] position. • If paper appears to be jammed. Follow instructions under Operation. • Check shredder head position. Follow instructions under Set-Up. • Wait 20 minutes for shredder to cool down before trying again.
Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse in the fellowes w11c?


There probably isn't a fuse. Or it's a non-replaceable one.
They suggest you allow it to cool for 20 minutes, when it becomes overheated it's supposed to shut down. Then in the case of a paper jam, try reverse, if that doesn't work, try forward again.

My Shredder W11C stopped working suddenly both forward and backwar. The power source is O K.


if you can hear the motor working but the paper won't pull in and shred then you broke a tooth on the plastic gear. This happens when you try to shred too much at one time. It happened to me but I couldn't find a plastic gear or the company to replace the gear. I liked the machine so I made my own tooth with DEVCON home plastic welder. With a little ingenuity and some tools you could try to fix it. Or like someone said buy a new shredder

Suddenly stopped. Power source is good.p Had been working ed. Does not go forward nor backward. Power source is goog.


It could be there is still some material in the cutting wheels. We have had this happen to our shredder a few times, do your best to get stuck materials free.

Good Luck

Fellowes W11C: will only run in reverse. Where are the sensors located?


There is a switch to put it in reverse. This is not a sensor problem. All the sensor does is detect something in the slot.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

Machine won't come on . I think the sensors need to be cleaned


Try going to OfficeMax and buy some lubrication paper that is made to run through your machine. I had the same problem. It was like there was a short in the shredder. Bought the lubricating paper and it worked the first time. No problems since. Good luck!!
