Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a SPL-1506X I was shredding and a piece of plastic accidentally was put through in amongst papers. I pulled what appears to be all of the plastic out But when I go to shred it may take one paper and the light comes on saying the bin is full and it is not
Piece of shredded plastic may be sticking on the "full" sensor, or switch

I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.

SOURCE: Bin light is staying on
check underneath to see if the bin full flap is working.
First, uplug from power. Look underneath and see if you have a flap. If you do, then make sure it's quiet and move the flap back and forth. You should hear a microswitch click.
If you don't have a flap and the hopper is removeable, make sure hopper is installed properly.

first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.
