Shredder bin full

Most models: 1) unplug, 2) put something down to collect paper bits, 3) lift up the shredder top unit off the bin, 4) empty the bin, 5) try and pull out any paper from the shredder top using tweezers - first remove paper that has not fed through by pulling it back out.
Often if the bin is overfull the shredder gets clogged and won't work or beeps. When unplugged, you have to carefully remove all the bits of paper from the teeth to unjam the two rows of teeth. Remedy is to frequently empty the bin.

How do you empty the container?

You will first need to unplug your shredder. On either side on the shredder head, there are grooves. These are finger grooves. Place your fingers inside the finger grooves and lift up. This will remove the shredder head from the waste basket. Simply empty the waste basket, replace the shredder head and plug back in.

I have a new Fellowes DS-1200C Shredder. It is full for the first time and I cannot figure out how to empty it.

I am sure you've figured it by now ...

In any case it is weird isn't it? The manual is inside the bin!

There is a slot on one side of the bin, in addition to the carry-slot at the top. This slot is supposed to have a transparent "window", but being black on the inside and the unit is also black, it doesn't appear to be transparent. In any case, hold the slot that is on the side and pull outward - the bin will come away. It is quite stiff, and only via an accidental **** was I able to discover how to open the bin, and found the manual inside.

How do you empty the shredder? It appears that you can remove the front to empty.

Yes, front pulls forward for emptying.
make sure it clips back in correctly when putting it back.

if you have reverse, run reverse.
if you don't have reverse, you will have to disassemble the drive shaft/cutters and clear manually

Working great until i emptied it now nothing is working

There is a sensor at the back, you can only see a small slot with a little piece of metal, the actuator, that when the top section, the shredder, is in its rigt place in contact with the box will function.
