Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder
The motor runs and will not except a piece of paper
Had the same problem. The gears inside the shredder have worn out. I overfed the shredder with too much paper and caused the nylon gears to slip and strip away the teeth. Now the motor won't engage the cutters when you attempt to feed the machine. If your handy you can take it apart, find the gears, contact the manufacture and have them send you out a new set for that model. If not, then you will need to buy a new shredder. In my case, they sent out new gears, it took forever to receive, and when I did get them one gear was the wrong size. I had them send out a new one, and again after weeks it was still the wrong gear, even after sending them pictures! I am now buying a new shredder, and I am spending a bit more to get a more robust machine that can handle more of the workload I need.
