Shredder problems Our Fellowes 420 Powershredder won't shred.  The red light stays on even after I clean the top inside of the shredder. It will work for one shredding and then the red light comes back on and it will only reverse

    All of a sudden after shredding the shredder just stopped working. The red light is on when I move the switch upwards although reverse works fine. I checked to see if anything was stuck in the shredder and there is nothing. I don't understand! Please help

SB-97Cs Full red light stays on


You can order from Fellowes or a dealer like myself. Maybe the unit is all jammed up with shreds in the housing. Try taking the top off and cleaning it throughly. Be careful with the short ribbon cabl.

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.

Green and middle red light go on but motor does not. does not shred


Check the sensors on top and bottom of cutters. Clean with cotton swabs and compressed air. If this does not help, bad sensors or main board.

Need a sensor switch for fellows powershred 220. Won't sense paper.


The top sensors may be bad or even the main board that they are connected to is bad. Try cleaning them with a lightly moistened swab or compressed air. Fellowes will sell you the parts.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


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.

good luck,

Power switch problem


It sounds as if your Bin full sensors are dirty and need to be cleaned. You should contact Fellowes at 1-800-945-4545.
