Runs reverse auto


From your manual!

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 waste basket; insert waste basket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

We have a CR220 fellowes shredder. It will shred 1/2 of a peice of paper, then the basket full light comes on even tho the basket is empty.


you can try cleaning the "bin- full" sensors. they are located on the inside of cabinet, on the bottom of the shredder "head". one will be to the left side of basket and one to the right. they kind of look like little glass eyes mounted inside of black rubber casings. paper dust on these will do this sometimes. if that doesn't do it then it sounds like your "bin-full" sensors are bad. a known problem with these shredders. fellowes has come out with modified sensors. if it was purchased within 2 years, it should still be under warranty.

When starting the dishwasher there is only a hum but nothing else happens


The first thing a Bosch dishwasher does when you start a program is run the waste pump. This ensures that any residual water and waste is removed from the machine before the wash program begins.

The hum you can hear is most likely the pump motor trying to drive the impeller. This can become clogged with waste and seize up, preventing the wash cycle from starting. There is an easy way to check this:

(It's easier to do this with the washer empty)

1: Select a wash program

2. Press "Start" and wait for the humming noise

3. Open the door and pull the bottom basket forward or lift it out completely

4. Find and lift the float (the plastic dome/mushroom in the bottom of the washer) all the way up

5. Keep the float lifted and the dishwasher should pump out. Stop if/when you hear a gurgling noise as this means it's empty and pumping mostly air.

6. If the pump doesn't start, lift the float again for about 1-2 seconds then let it drop again for 1-2 seconds. Repeat this 10-20 times and see if the pump starts. The repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a seized impeller.

If the pump does start, keep lifting and dropping the float switch (1-2 seconds each time) to see if the pump starts every time. If it does, you should be OK to use the washer, but further action is needed to stop the problem returning.

When you've done all this, post the results here and I'll advise you what to do to fix the problem or prevent it from returning.

I can't remove the basket to empty


Its probably jammed with shredded paper to the point where the paper is stopping you from removing the basket. You will just have to try to open it enough and "fish out" some of the paper so that the level goes down and the basket can be removed.
In extreme cases if you let the basket overfill then the "shredded" paper gets caught back up in the cutting blades and you can jam the machine and fry the pcb inside.

Basket full light on


without seeing the product, there are 2 (two) things to check.
First, unplug the shredder and go underneath where the bin full flap is. Sometimes paper debris gets stuck between the flap and switch. Check to ensure the switch is not out of adjustment. you'll have to remove the top cover to perform this. Otherwise, your PC Board is defective.

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,
