Try blowing some canned air down into the feed slot to clean the sensors.

You must first unplug it and look inside the shredding blades, especially around the spot usually near the center, where there is a pressure button. When paper hits it, it starts shredding. Chances are some pieces of paper have jammed just over it stopping paper from hitting it and switching it on. I have had to use long tweezers to work the jammed bits out... Once clear it will work again. Also using shredder oil every 50 sheets through will help it cut easier , and jam less frequently. Do not put too many sheets through together in a bunch. No staples...

Anti jam light is on unit will not run


The "anti-jam" light actually is a jam light and it is notifying you that the shredder is jammed. If you turn off the power and examine the shredding unit you will find shreds of paper stuck in the mechanism. Removing all of the shreds will get your shredder back in operation and the anti-jam/jam indicator will be off

Staples TXC22A. Why does Jam Light prevent shredding?


Your meticulous cleaning may have overlooked embedded residue from coated paper or paper laminated with plastic. It may be necessary to use a sharp pick and even a utility knife to remove the material bit by bit.

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.

Media keeps jamming


Media jams can have various reasons:
Wrong size of label.
Wrong sensor selection.
The sensors are not correctly placed.
Check with the (4) sensor adjusment for the correct position

Shedder one works


This is an issue with the paper feed sensor which may be a electronic eye or a mechanical switch if it is mecanical you may just have to jiggle the switch a few times, occasionally paper may get stuck behind it not letting it activate. If it is electronic you have bad sensors or bad pc board and you'll have to contact the manufacturer for further info.
