Question about Fellowes PS60C-2 Shredder

Open Question

My mother's Fellowes PS60-2 paper shredder isn't working.

I "inherited" my mother's Fellowes PS60-2. I plugged it in and put paper in the top opening. The green light came on and the sound of a motor was on but the teeth won't rotate in either direction. I know nothing about it other than it has a cord that you plug in,a switch for forward and reverse and a slot for paper to be chewed up. I don't even know how to remove the SQUARE HEADED SCREWS! What tool is used for the screws for removal and what should I be looking for inside the machine?
Please help. Thank you very much.

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.

SOURCE: Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred

there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.

The majority of Fellowes personal shredders (small shredders that can fit under a desk) are repairable and will have parts available. If you would like to check your model shredder to determine if parts are available, please click the "Ask a Question" tab above, and advise the model of shredder, the shredder's serial number and a description of the part needed. The serial number will be located on the bottom side of the shredder head below the bar code.

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.
Here is a link to the manual for a Fellowes PS60 Shredder.
Maybe it will help you in resolving some of your problems.

OUR FELLOWES CROSS CUT SHREDDER WILL KEEP ON RUNNING AFTER THE PAPER HAS BEEN SHREDDED. ARE THERE SENSORS THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE COVERED IN PAPER DUST?


If you look into the slot you feed the paper into, you should see a two little bumps that are facing each other in the center of the slot. These are the sensors that tell the unit to turn on/off. You can try cleaning them with a paper towel or long q-tip. If this does not fix it, then the sensors will have to be replaced. Most Fellowes machines have a 3-year warranty, you can call Fellowes at 1-800-955-0959 to see if yours is under warranty.

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred


Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Fellowes C220 Shredder Jam


First unplug shredder. You can remove the top and start removing paper. It can be quite time consuming. I can't remember if this model uses plastic paper strippers or not. If it does, they may have broken when the shredder jammed. They strip the paper from the cutters.

Clogged Fellowes P45 shredder


A common problem with all personal shredders is overoiling and the shreds build-up inside the cutter shroud. You will have to remove the top and clean out all of it.

Fellowes C120-CShredder Full but I can't pull the plastic bin out


Yeah, you can take the top off.... My C-220 had three screws under the front top area, and then two snap-out tabs at the top back area. It was easy.
