The optical sensor or mechanical sensor is going to be above the shredder "teeth" just under the cover it is probably dirty with envelope glue, air alone may not be enough.

It is most likely an optical sensor on the bottom of the motor assembly of the shredder.It should be shown in the operation manual.

Bin full light


The sensor build limestone residue during operation and needs to be cleaned off. The bin sensors are typically located on either side of the freeze platens and can be removed to clean. Turn machine off and unplug. Reach in past the water trough and freeze platen and you will see the transmiter and receiver plugged into the side walls. Gentlely work sensor loose and work sensor wiring out hole until you can get to sensors. Clean the two sensor with a clean cloth and with vinegar until sensers are clean. Reinstall, and plug back in and start unit. Bin sensor light should be out and should start.

1. bin full when bin is empty means that the bin control sensor is dirty or need to be replaced. But since your having problems with water over flowing also i would bet that your machine needs a good cleaning. is you water full light on or off? if off and water sump try is full then you need to pull water sensor out and clean or replace it. if water sensor light is on then you need to replace water inlet valve.

Can t get scotsman cme1656rs to start


problem was not the universal controller. The bin sensors are dirty and scaled up and gives the same indication that bin is full. find the sensors and clean the scale off and unit should start working again. Save the card, you will sooner or later probablly need it.

We have a Fellows Pwoershred 2200SC that keeps showing the full bin light even when it's empty. Tried cleaning the eye near the feed area with canned air as per recommendation by a shredder maintence...


There are also sensors under the shredder head to indicate when the bin is full. You either have a defective sensors or a dirty one (clean with air).

The "Bin Full" indicator light


There is a sensor in the bin area of the machine that is faulty. If you have cleaned the bin area completely and still have that problem then the sensor is bad and will have to be replaced. Look on the manufacturer website for the replacement part.

The "bin full" indicator is always on.

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,

Fellows Powershred c-120 c indicator lights


your bin full sensors are dirty or broken to clean access bottom side of shredder head and look for a set of screws on each end of the paper throat. There you will see two little bulbs (bin full sensors) these have more than likely gathered paper dust and need to be cleaned with a Q-tip dipped in a little Isopryl Alchohol. This should solve your problem. If you have any questions just call us at 1-800-945-4545. A Customer Service Representative will assist you.
