Buy part for Fellowes 1250 shredder

We have a Fellowes 1250 shredder. A small plastic piece has broken off the base unit that prevents the sensor from knowing the drawer is back in place. We are not able to locate a replacement piece and have to keep a little piece of card stock stuck in the hole where there was once a piece of plastic. Should we just recycle the unit and buy a new one or is there a way to 'fix' the shredder?

SOURCE: Fellowes Shredder keeps running

You should be able to flip up the cd cover and visibly see the sensors in the center of the paper entry(look like little LED lightbulbs) Clean with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alchohol. This should solve your problem. If it doesn't you probally have a burned out sensor. call 1-800-945-4545 to check with customer service.

If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.

Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

The basket is cracked


On the bottom of the 'TOP PART WITH THE MOTOR AND BLADES" is a SAFETY SWITCH that must fit onto a small piece on the inside of the basket for the unit to run. If the basket is cracked and the small plastic piece does not match up the machine will not start.

Your options are:
1) Try to repair the basket to get the switch to line up
2) Go to the manufacture's web site to purchase a replacement basket.
3) Trash it all and buy a new unit.

Fellowes 3011001 shredder stopped shredding. tried to remove shredded pieces but could not.


First, try switching to reverse, alot of times, stuck paper will come back out in reverse. Then unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and with a small flathead screwdriver, knife, or tweezers, dig out pieces of paper. It takes alot of effort but by digging small pieces out, a little at a time, you can get most of the paper free.

The Fellowes P-4sc shredder is not shredding, its just making a granding sound but the blades are not moving


plastic gears are broken. don't think fellows make replacement parts for small personal shredders. get a new one. don't buy a Royal or Aurora brand, they are the worst.

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.

I have a Fellowes ps-65c shredder. If I load a piece of paper, it doesn't turn on automaticaly. If I turn on the switch the shredder runs OK in both directions. I have cleaned both sides of the paper...


its possible the sensor has gone bad

you will need to UNplug the unit , then take it apart 9 screws then gently pry it apart with a screwdriver or butter knife
you could test this with a voltmeter, one side emits a constant should have 5-12 volts across this
the other side the reciever will change its voltage when you break the signal with a piece of paper.

also ive seen chunks of plastic break off from inside and as the teeth rotate the plastic can cut the wire

Where can I get new blades?


usually these plastic pieces break from the machine jamming you really should call Fellowes customer service at 1-800-945-4545 and speak with them. They may be able to resolve your problem with a little more information on your unit.

Novitech shredder


After clearing the jam (with the unit unplugged!), let the unit cool completely, then try using it again. A notice on the nameplate inside my unit says: "2 min on/4 min off." Apparently, a thermal cutoff keeps it from overheating by automatically preventing continued operation that might otherwise melt the parts. So heed the directions. I had the same problem with my NoviTech Model PS-026/B2 crosscut shredder (max: 5 sheets, 1 credit card). Also, make sure the motor mechanism is seated square and flush on the bin. I tried testing it out of the bin, and the green ready light wouldn't come on -- for a good reason: safety. (I still have all of my fingers, thanks to that!) Hope this helps.

Red Light on, but no jam


Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.
