Bruce,
You may have dust that has built up around the photo sensor that looks for paper. Try getting a can of compressed air and blowing the sensor off with it. Hope this helps!

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.

SOURCE: p400c-2 fellowes shredder only runs in reverse no

I just had the same problem. I called the 800 # they asked for proof of purchase to replace if 1 year old. I did not have it so...... I took it apart ------ unpluged ! Only to find all gears are fine, service dept. said gears cause this problem, not so with mine. Remove top by pulling of base remove 6 screws on under side, played with the switch inside a bit and, it now works, do not know how long but for know it does. My opinion is the relay gets dirty, and you cannot clean it without talking whole thing apart.

SOURCE: Shredder won't shut off after paper goes thru

Note that the sensors that tells the shredder to stop are underneath the unit.

Pull out the tray, put the unit on the side and you'll see two places where there are two flat-head phillips screws holding the optical sensors in place (no need to unscrew them). Just wipe the visible part of those two sensors with a rag.

The sensors that are readily visible on top of the unit tells the shredder when to start.

What maintenance do I need to do to dm12c shredder


Periodically run lubricating sheets through the machine. This will oil the knives and gear assembly. The second alternative is to drizzle some shredder lubrication oil into the paper feed slot. It does thr same thing but is messier. When you empty the basket, check for any jammed paper in the cutters. Unplug and remove.

How do I oil the shredder


Found this that should help:
Oiling Instructions for Fellowes Shredders
Why and How Often: Regular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders is a necessary maintenance step to help keep your shredder functioning properly and prolong its life. Several factors determine how often you should oil your shredder-such as the type of paper being shred, the amount of paper being shred, and whether you shred only occasionally or continuously for long periods of time without stopping.
  • As a general rule, it is a good practice to oil your shredder each time you empty the wastebasket, or once a month.
  • Micro-cut shredders need to be oiled more frequently-ideally after every 15 minutes of use.
How To: Press and hold down the reverse button on your shredder. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps across the cutters while gently squeezing the oil bottle. Continue to run the shredder in
reverse for another 10-15 seconds.
What to use: It is recommended that you use Fellowes Oil to oil your shredder. You may also use other oil designated for shredder use.
Do not use any oil or lubricant that is dispensed from an aerosol container.
Do not use any petroleum-based oils or lubricants. Use of such oils or lubricants will void the warranty on your shredder and could cause serious injury, as they are fire hazards when used with electronic devices.

Can you put oil or wd40 in shredder


I own a Fellowes PS 60 shredder.
NO! Do not use those lubricants.
I have used Silicone lubricant for many years and it does not and has not caused any problems in my PS60. Spray it across the top of the cutters and manually run the shredder (without paper) forward and reverse for a few seconds. This will lubricate all the cutters. I do this only once until my collection bin is full. Once full I empty it and lubricate once again.

Shredder will shred about 3/4 of a sheet of paper then shuts off. If you open the shredder door it resets the power switch and you can finnish shredding the remaining paper. is there easy access to the...


If your shredder has a feature where it won't run with the door open/shredder off the bin, you probably need to make sure that the safety is engaging properly. If the motor seems to sound very labored when it runs, unplug it, and check the blades to make sure there's not a lot of extra stuck in them. You may need to clean them and lubricate it with special shredder oil ONLY.
