Question about Fellowes Powershred PS-65C Shredder

Plastic stuck in my Fellowes shredder blades!

I did a really silly thing, I tried to shred plastic in my shredder and now the teeth are gummed up with plastic. I took it completely apart but can not seem to get the teeth apart to completely clean them out. Is there anyway to do that? Thank you so much!

Sorry, but no. There isn't really a way, unless you are very technically minded, to take the teeth apart and clean them. You might try, using a paperclip, I find that I have to do that on occasion to clear out the pieces that get caught in between the teeth.
or maybe, just a thought,?... You can use a product called goof off, it does come in a aerosol can as well, in addition to small bottles of the product in liquid form. Good luck.

CAN THE BLADES ON A FELLOWES 99Ci SHREDDER BE SHARPENED?


I do not believe so. Never heard of sharpening one. The shredding blade is pretty complicated. The manufacturer has a good support web page I suggest contacting them. Keep it clean and oiled and it should last a long time. And do not shred stuff listed on the cannot shred list.

Are the shredder blades going around? most shredders have guides that guide the paper between to shredder gears or teeth. these guides are usually made of plastic and breake. First step is to see if the shredder gears or teeth ar going around.....

Why is the fellowes blade still rotating even when there is no paper?


It is possible that a small shred of paper is lodged at the sensor underneath the cutting blade.
    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers or use canned air and blow the edges of the blades.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse.
    • 3 Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

The shredder is making a thumping noise like something is out of whack. Tried lubricant and running back and forth. It still thumps.


Common problems.
Jammed paper.

When sherdding paper that has any type of adheasive or glue, such as junk mail advertisments, the glue gets stuck on the blades.
FIX:
1 - UNPLUG
2 - remove top cover
3 - using a small screwdriver or other pointed small object, carefully clean out
the blade paths of jammed paper. Typically there is a cylinder of blades on the underside that does the shredding.
4 - be careful not to damage or PRY the blades, just enough pressure to get the paper out.
5 - dont use oil or lubricants, they can GUM up the blades.
6 - assemble

Give it a try.

Broken plastic teeth


I suggest you just go buy a new shredder, otherwise, if you really want to fix it. That would cost you more then you go buy a new shredder.

Broken plastic gear tooth - Fellowes P55-C Shredder


I suggest using Belzona (metal compound). Mix it with its hardner, paste it over the broken gear (dont worry if it gets over a couple of other gears. Let Belzona sink and dry (4-5hours). Get a Dremel drill with a fine blade on it and cut accurately where the teeth are meant to be. Voila, you have fixed your gear.
