Fellows powershread keeps turning off - says bin is full when its empty

a known problem on these models. however, first make sure the sensors are clean and not covered with paper dust. they are located above top of basket with one on right and one on left side of basket. alos, if you have shredded paper hanging down, that will trigger sensors also. if everything looks good, you'll have to have sensors replaced.

Fellowes Powershredder, making clunking noise and ceases to shred

2 probably causes
to check this 1st unplug the machine

now take the top off ,there are 2 screws underneath the front edge of the cover assessable when the door is open, and 2 on the back you will want to back the shreddr up to a table when you take off the top (the sensors and switches are all still connected so this takes the stress off of the wires)
now you will need to remove the blade guards there are screws at the left and right ends of the guards,
once these are removed you should have a pretty good view of the blades, look for any visible obstruction (part of a binder clip or paper clip or metal closure from an envelope for example)
if this wasn't the cause try this
on the side of the blades there is a fan wheel that is connected to the motor. When you turn the fan with your hand you can manually turn the blades, typically you will be able to turn it to a given point and then it will be increasingly hard to turn, you might also notice that the bar on the outer edge of the blades begins to bend at this point. These bars seem to break under fairly low stress and having one break will also produce the symptoms you described. replacing one of those is a costly repair, (cost is largely because it is very time consuming,)

Want to adjust trimmer so i give a better outline i just bought new blades, not sharp enough

Sometimes the new blades are not sharpen enough, You need to have it resharpen by a professional and adjust to the type of work you want it to do. Also sometimes even if you have the blade resharpen it will not cut, because the trimmer motor needs more power to move the blade side to side faster. On and the Andis GTO T-outliner trimmer this the most comm problem. Try Mannys Sharpening
