SOURCE: DM15C stops after 4 seconds, open bin light comes on

I lived with the problem for 6+ Months -- drove me NUTS -- Today, I called Fellows -- Spoke to "JoAnn"... She said this works 80% of the time...
Pull out the bin -- put your foot inside to hold the shredder down -- pull up on the top of the shredder -- you WILL hear a POP as the plastic top disengages from the bottom but TRUST ME THIS IS OK! -- take off this top section (which houses the blades) -- flip it over -- you will see 6 screws total but it is the sets of 2 screws close together to focus on -- right next to the screws you will see a tiny glass sensor -- use a q-tip and alcohol to give them a wipe -- press the top back on -- bin back in -- you are DONE -- This took me less than 1 minute and it works as it did the day I got it! Go shred something!  :)

SOURCE: shredder won't shut off when done shredding

If you oil this shredder, and this specific model uses electric eyes to start and stop, chances are they (optics) are dirty. Clean the optics (the sensors on top and bottom of the infeed)by performing the following. 1.Disconnect power. 2.Clean sensors with a soft cloth or cotton swab. 3. if you have canned (compressed air) blow out the same area. If this doesn' t correct the problem, you have a defective PC Board.

SOURCE: Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred

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.

RED Light is on (left of the green light)


Reverse shredder and clean out as much paper shred as possible. Use some lube oil. Hairclipper oil and canola vegetable oil are good choices.

I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!


There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

Red light is blinking


Most home shredders overheat after a while, and stop working for 10, 15 minutes or more. It should reset once it cools down, as long as the blades aren't jammed with stuff that shouldn't be shredded.

Beeps and stops; doesn't stop when empty


As for your first part - It sounds like there is something wrong with the switch lever that moves to complete the electrical circuit to start the shredder. On every shredder I have seen, there is a little "bellows" linked up to this lever that pushes it back so the machine will shut off. Most of the time all you have to do is put another piece of paper in and let that get shredded and the shredder will stop afterwards. If not, then just use the main switch to turn the shredder off.
Second, the beeping during "mid-shred" sounds like a warning that the shredder is starting to overheat and shut down. If this is the case, just wait a few minutes to allow it to cool down and try to finish the shredding you have. I have found that if you feed a shredder a constant stream of paper to shred, this might cause the shredder to overheat.
Also, the shredder may get overloaded with pieces of the shredded paper. Here is the way to check on that:
1. UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL CORD FROM WHEREVER YOU HAVE IT PLUGGED IN.
2. Lift the shredder from the bin and turn it upside down.
3. Look for an excessive amount of paper in the bottom of the shredder. If there is a lot, you can remove it in several ways. (Most likely the bin is quite full at this point.) Pull the majority of it out and put it in the bin. If there are pieces of paper that you can pull out with your fingers, use a tool (needle-nose pliers, serrated tweezers, a hemostat, etc.) to get those difficult pieces out.

Replace the unit on the bin making sure that it is the same way you took it off. In most cases (on the better shredders), there is a notch on the underside of the shredder that needs to be on top of a "nub" that is on the edge of the inside top of the bin. Unless that nub is aligned with the slot, the shredder will not work.

I have an Ativia 6000 shredder. The red light comes on and the shredder stops, after only shredding a few papers..why?


If place too many pages in the shredder the motor will be overworked and it will overheat and shut down until it has cooled down. Try shredding fewer pages at a time.

I have a Royal VF1000MF shredder. While shredding


Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More assistance with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder back to good condition it looks like you might have to get a new paper shredder. Great place to learn about new paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

You have probably "fried" the pcb inside the machine.....this is a "consumer" machine...no more than 5 mins ON then 10 Mins OFF to let it cool down.....you should only shred about 70% of the MAX rating for the machine.

Shredder stops shredding, you have to turn it off and on,


If I had designed a shredder, I would equip it with a circuit or device that would detect overloads (too much stock to shred) with either an overcurrent detector or a thermal shutoff so it's likely that one of these two methods is used in yours and if you are following the guidelines as to the maximum number of sheets, then this circuit is faulty and shutting the motor down too early.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,
