Question about Fellowes Powershred P-45C Shredder
Shredder does not turn off when shredding complete. have to turn off manually.
Either there is a piece of paper that is jammed where the paper in sensor is located, or there is paper fibers covering the paper in sensor, or the paper in sensor is defective.
The paper in sensor is usually located in the center of the shredder where you place your paper. Once you locate your sensor, you can try blowing it out with a can of air that is used to clean your keyboard out.
Since the opening for the paper or the Thoat width is 9", the switch should be close to 4.5" towards the center.
To try to help you located the sensor, take a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11 paper and fold it in 1/2 Long ways. This will place a crease in the middle of the paper. With the power off, or unplugged, place the paper in the shredder and look around where the middle of the paper (crease) lines up in the shredder. You might need a flashlight to help you located it. It will either look like a slot, or a little black lever.
Hopefully you will be able to blow the sensor out and clean it.

There is not a manual sensor on the P-45c. There is a electronic sensor on the P-45c

SOURCE: Won't shut off after shredding.
I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2. Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)

If your equipment makes abnormal noise when you try to switch on again then gear problem is confirmed else the change over switch should be defective or there may be a open circuit in the change over switch connection I shall advice you to call the service engineer for fixing the problem else take safty pecaution to attempt repairs

The plastic reverse pushbutton over the soft touch keypad is broken/stuck in or down causing this problem. A new pushbutton cover is needed. How are the Forward and Stop buttons?
