Question about Fellowes Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have a Fellowes PS-65C Shredder that doesn't shred or shredder doesn't spin.

The unit powers on but the shredder doesn't spin anymore, it just emits a low humming noise. Hopefully you have fix for this. Got a ton more things to shred. Thanks in advance.

Yes, it often happens when you put too much in at one time. Or it might be a staple. Try putting it in reverse and pulling the papers back out at the same time. If you flip it upside down and see that the blades are clear, then the motor is probably burned out.
Good luck!

Plastic stuck in my Fellowes shredder blades!


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.

Looking for a basket for a fellows 65c


You can only buy new one or block a microswitch inside. Basket from Fellowes PS-67Cs can be used too. If you use this shredder privately just block the microswitch.

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

Paper shredder


Shredders have a light emitter and detector inside the slot where you put the paper. When the paper is put in, the emitted light is reflected off the paper, detected, and then turns on the shredder by sending a signal to the control board. The emitter/detector often has a plastic cover which over time collects paper dust. The paper dust can reflect the emitted light back onto the detector, causing the shredder to remain on. You may need to remove the top of the shredder and remove the shredding mechanism to get to the light sensor. It's also possible that the components on the control board have changed value, causing the detector sensitivity to increase. This may result in the unit turning itself on in daytime and off at night.
