Shredder wont shred

My boss has a shredder that will not run unless the bin is exactly centered in the bottom of the unit. There is a safety switch inside there, and a magnet to activate it. Make sure nothing is interfering with the bin or the shredder fitting together.
On other units, there is a slot that must match up with the shredder. It will only work one way. See of the shredder will turn around and put it on the bin the other way.

Have a 1999 John Deere Dozer 650G LGP series and on the control panel where you crank the engine there are four lights to the left of the key ignition switch about dime size. Starting from left to right...

Check your hydraulic filter,if it has not been replaced in a while the filter may have a restriction allowing the light to illuminate. The red light may be telling you there is not enough flow through the filter to operate safely with out doing damage to the hydarulic system.

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.

How to disassemble the mailmate spl-727MM. I think there are 2 screws from the bottom under the rubber pads and I think you need a long screw driver but what kind? Phillips or regular? No. 1 or No. 2?

1. Remove the two rubber pads (only two out of four pads with Phillips screw, you should be able to see which two).
2. Use a long Phillips screw driver to remove the two screws
3. You may still not able to remove the the housing because there are double side tapes sticking the front part of the housing to the shredder's base, use a ruler (steel ruler) to detach the tapes
4. You should be able to pull out the housing (the machine should be up-side-down) and you should be able to do what you wanted to fix.

Unjamed, but jammed light remains on and won't shred

Most likely the PC board has gone bad. It will cost over 100.00 from fellowes.

Red Light on, but no jam

Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.
